I really don't know how they stay in business. I think local people just get used to going there. I've been there a few times. The food is never bad, but it's never good either. I gave a 1 for value, because even though it's inexpensive, you are paying for food that's not very good. The waitresses will serve you, but don't go out of their way. There are so many other restaurants and diners in the area. Why go some place where they don't even try to be better than mediocre at best?

I called the diner in the morning on April 8, and asked if they had a Passover menu. The person said they did and read me the menu selections. Great I thought and made a reservation for 7 people. We were seated on time. Our reservation was honored. The server was cordial and friendly. However, food left a lot to be desired. The gefilte fish was on the salad bar cut up in chunks. The matzoh ball soup was subpar. What were supposed to be matzoh balls looked like tan meat balls and were indigestible. The food took one hour to be brought to our table. Another member of the wait staff brought the food and dumped it piled high onto the food trolley. No one from the wait staff served us the food. My daughter finally wound up serving the family. The food is mediocre. The restaurant wasn't prepared to serve a traditional Jewish holiday meal. They seemed short-staffed and uninformed. We also heard something about the meal being delayed due to computer errors. It seemed that the only computer error was involving our table as everyone seated around us had their meals on time.

Let me start with the positive. The atmosphere was good. There was enough space for us to breathe, and though it was busy, it was never too loud. The decor is traditional and looks very clean and well kept. The food was less than stellar. The eggs were undercooked and the ham was overcooked. The hash browns had a nice crust, but, underneath the crust, they tasted like oily boiled potatoes. The lox is NOT smoked nor do I feel they make that clear enough. They give you a lot (read: too much), and it wasn't very fresh. Not inedible, but it could start to turn soon. The coffee tasted burnt and stale. The toast was the only thing that kept their food from being completely unbearable. It was fresh, well-toasted and still nice and hot when it was brought to the table. Pricewise, it was pretty much what I expected for diner food, but, if you get what you pay for, I overpaid. The service was poor, even if only attributable to our specific hostess and server. The hostess was completely oblivious to us while we stood at the podium for five minutes in front of her before she asked how many were in our party. She looked bored, distracted and seemed to have a very condescending attitude. She immediately led us to a section, but was stopped by someone saying the section was full, something I'd think a hostess should know. Our server asked minimal questions about what we wanted, except how we wanted our eggs. Things are listed multiple times on the menu with subtle variations, and if you don't make absolutely clear what you want, the server, at least in our case, assumes to know and brings that. When the food was brought out and I pointed out that I was missing hash browns, the server told me that it didn't come with that. When I said that it said so in the menu, she said "it never comes with that". She did not offer to bring hash browns out at an additional charge, nor did she look at the menu to maybe show me where I mis-read. I felt brushed aside like I didn't matter. I have never been closer to walking out on a check. The only thing that kept we was the toast. Go for the toast, if you must go.

The changes made to the inside to update the atmosphere were much needed and the place looks great now. Love the omelets and breakfast anytime, healthly portions for super cheap, the burgers are great and the fires are never soggy ( a common problem that plagues many a diner). Plenty of booths always and even on Sunday, you can still get a seat without having to wait forever. Great place to go when you don't know what you want because they have everything. Longest menu ever, not in a bad way either.

Definitely worth a trip, try the honey fried chicken. The desserts are great as well.

Good food, fast service, a lot of food for the money, great atmosphere. Check this place out. Early Bird portions can't be beat.

Definitely try the french toast. I have it every time im drunk and it is sooo goooood. I would have to agree with one of the reviews that the menues are too big but thats because they have like a million items to choose from.
