The food was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the Oreo pancakes and wash it down with some gelato. The kids had bubble gum gelato. Definitely give it a try.

I've been to lots of diners but this one is at the top of the list. Their food is really fresh, including the fish which often times in other diners you can smell the difference. My favorite thing is their spinakopita. Their dinner portion comes with a side salad that is enough for a meal. The diner is very clean... More

Huge menu with lots of options. I had a chef salad that was enormous. It was enough for 2 people. Hubby had the Rockville Centre Burger and loved it. Fast service and typical diner prices.

Had to stop for a quick breakfast and this place was perfect. Enjoyed the Feta and Spinach omelet, it was a bit dry but it was good. Also had a side of Corned Beef Hash, it was very good. Not very busy at 8:30 on Tuesday morning.

This is a totally standard diner with what sometimes seems like incredibly high prices for what you are getting in terms of both food and ambiance. I am happy it is in the neighborhood because every neighborhood needs a diner. I just wish it were more reasonably priced. Food is fine, not remarkable. The host or manger who is there... More

I'm in town visiting with family for the holidays, because I recently moved to Madrid Spain about 3 yrs ago and I missed going to the diner. I hope one day soon that Europe will move into the 21st century and open up some great diners. Who doesn't love food at 2:00am...Especially when you can eat anything from waffles to... More
