Great selection of diner food and some Asian dishes as well. Can get crowded at peak times - but that just speaks to the quality of the food and the friendly service. There is a parking lot, which is handy in this neighborhood.

Dropped in here today for lunch. Typical diner that has a unique Asian decor. I'm not sure I get that, but okay. I ordered the breakfast burritos and they were bland. A flavored wrap would have made it better. There wasn't much flavor. My wife had the lentil burger. She didn't like it - it was mushy, not cooked, no... More

There is nothing fancy about the South Wedge Diner, but if you're a breakfast aficionado you ought to stop in. Eggs, toast, sausage, home fries and coffee were just what I needed going in, and it all came to a little under $10. The servers are pleasant and efficient and I'll be going back soon.

It can get crowded for breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday morning, but the wait is never long and always worth it. They have specials and they have the stand by meals as well. They have great waffles and the frittata is good. You can't miss.

I got here because one Couchsurfing friend recommend it to me. I have a big appetite so I ordered the steak. The food is really good and the services is good as well. It's not that expensive. Overall good place to get breakfast.

I had breakfast here recently, a breakfast burrito, which was WAY to big for a normal person, not complaining but I am not a big fan of taking things home after a meal. It was fresh and good. The salsa that came with it was not bad. They have some interesting things on the menu and if you get there... More

There's nothing "fancy" about this diner, and there's nothing disappointing about this diner. A great and inspirational story of a Vietnamese family coming to the USA and working hard (washing dishes, cleaning, serving) in a Greek owned diner, and then purchasing the diner and making it a great place to eat. The breakfast skillets are huge and delicious. Never had... More

My wife and I eat here often and we are NEVER disappointed. They have mastered the art of the small area diner; as a bonus, they have INCREDIBLE Asian fare (Vietnamese, Chinese and Thai). We eat here on average once every couple weeks. Breakfast is served all day - I cannot say I have ever had any meal that was... More

Based on a newspaper review, I drove in special to experience the Hu Tieu Dac Biet soup. It was worth the drive and every bit of the $9 I spent for this most excellent dish. It's chicken stock based, homemade, not that canned stuff, with fantastic rice noodles at the bottom. It's surprisingly and reasonably full of fried calamari (delicious),... More
