Exactly the type of place I was hoping to find in the USA but I wasn't expecting it in New York so close to our hotel, real old fashioned diner with great food.

We eat at here last night and the food was really good. We ordered the burger and the meat souvlaki platter. The portion was huge and we could not eat the complete meal. The service was outstanding and really fast.

First timers in New York, we stayed at a hotel in Long Island City and wanted to visit a proper American Diner. This was it - the right 60'es feeling to it. Good burgers! Good service! Worth a visit!

Ate here late one night after arriving from JFK from an overseas flight. It was a few blocks from our hotel and chose it based upon friends (locals) advice as well as that of TripAdvisor reviews. Perfect!!! Everything a true diner should be. Fresh, quality food-- huge portions--- great service!!! Will definitely go back!!!

This is a rare gem in the neighborhood that i hope never goes away. This place has everything from pasta to steak on a very affordable price. The best bang for the buck in the area. I frequent this place all the time and brought many of my friends and family here to have a quick bite.

I found stark contrasts in this place. I was in the area for a few nights only and wanted to try out the diner for breakfast. Its clean and the brass/metal bannisters and the interiors are clean. The service is the best, the lady who took my order was really pleasant and quick. She had a good attention to detail... More

Ignore all the photos on their website. The place was updated to a wonderful diner motif about a year ago. It didn't change the food, however, which has always been "very good restaurant" quality.
