    One of the last true 24 hour diners in Boston and is a blast from the past. They serve everything, from authentic root beer floats to bold cups of Joe. Try the Boston Cream Pancakes!

    Like something out of a movie, drunk party girls, colorful patrons, they make you sit on the stools of small parties. Burgers good, beer on tap.

    (Best of Boston 2013-DINER) Improper Bostonian says, "It has all the requisite elements for a retro diner: neon lighting, swivel stools lining the counter and, for $2, a bottomless cup of coffee."

    Enjoyed our breakfast and the conversations. If you crave a real breakfast near downtown, it’s worth a walk to.

    The 4-egg omelette with avocado and veggies - so good! Mom had steak and eggs and loved it. Home fries included and tasty too.

    Richard Wilk, an anthropologist at Indiana University, says part of the appeal of late-night dining comes from the appeal of familiarity, and this spot has it in spades. Read more

    Get the "diner special" for breakfast. 3 eggs, french toast, bacon, hash browns. It's worth the coronary.

    If you're really nice to the waitress she will make you mimosas before they start serving alcohol and give you banana bread.

    Quoth the Mayor: "I like the steak and eggs in the morning. That always gets me going. The coffee's okay. It's nice that they serve beer late at night. This place is the classic." Read more

    Go to the South Street Diner and snag a spot at the counter. Order yourself a veggie burger and an order of onion rings. Put some coins in the jukebox and play Blue Travelers's "The Hook." Smile.

    It's probably great if you are drunk and need diner food. As a bus ride food, it wasn't the best idea.

    I ordered the supreme omelet and the waitress only got one ingredient right. No water until the end, she asked us to pay right when she set down the wrong food so she could leave.No ketchup or syrup.

    The chicken sandwich is basically just three dry grilled chicken fingers on a bun. The pancakes are good though. I wouldn't get anything by breakfast here again.

    It has an old diner feel, staff seemed a little grumpy like they didn't want to be there and one of them was having a mild argument with a male inside the diner. I wouldn't go here again. Food average
