    Bel Aire Diner is open 24 hours a day. It is owned and operated by Argyris Dellaportas. His hard work is one of the reasons why the Daily News named Bel Aire New York’s best diner in 2001 and 2005. Read more

    Awesome breakfast! Great value for money & tastes like heaven. For Deluxe Combo you'll get coffee, juice, 2 eggs, bacon, ham & a waffle (or pancakes, but I reccommend the waffle) & all that for 10.75$

    Such a lovely diner! Extensive and inventive menu, delicious food, and truly kind and sweet staff. Looking forward to going again. (Also leave room for dessert! The banana cream pie is phenomenal)

    Honestly, the food is hit or miss, but I love that I can always rely on them to deliver after a long night of debauchery and drinking. That, alone, gets them all the stars they need.

    Popeye (spinach) salad is huge and full of fresh ingredients. You don't need it but the grilled chicken option is great if looking for extra protein. Love the house dressing too.

    During this unfortunate coronavirus, Bel Aire Diner is lifting the community’s spirits by having old school drive-in movies in the parking lot ; allowing entertainment & adhering to social distancing.

    The menu has become super overloaded and complicated, but the food is great and they are open all the time.

    Try the caprese omelet with salad instead of potatoes. Very good. Side order unbuttered whole wheat toast with orange marmalade.

    ☞ Jerry Seinfeld popped in for coffee with Howard Stern who had hot water and a brownie that he ate with a fork like a snob, and whined about being fat.

    The eggs benedict is bland and too runny but the grilled cheese with tomato or the chicken ceaser wrap are both excellent

    Every serving size here is huge. Salads are great. Burgers are good. Maybe only their sandwiches are on the downside for me.

    No variety of menu and over priced given poor quality of food and way it is slopped on the plate. No love in that place on how food is presented. I go bc convenient. That's it.
