    Been going here since the early 2000s and not much has changed - except the menu has vastly expanded due to popularity. Everything is still delicious! If you like desserts, try their éclairs.

    Inexpensive, quick and great food. By far one of the best diners in the state.

    Good: large portions & menu variety. My egg white omelette had tasteless cardboard tomatoes + an unappealing brown skin on it. Industrial shredded potatoes were fast-food like, lacking flavor

    Wow, great meal, loved the Greek moussaka. Server was quick and attentive. Sodas were strangely pricey, $2.99

    Matzo soup was awful. Steak dinner,Salad,Kids chicken fingers were good. Waiter was nice, when he'd eventually get to us. Mgrs seemed to not care of the answers when they asked how it was

    Sit at the counter during a rush time and watch the crazy wait staff deal with the even crazier cooks.

    The truth is the only reason why the Food Network went there so many times is that Jefferson Diner PAID Food Network to come there. One of the owners sons constantly called every 5 minutes into the FN

    A basic burger and they've managed to screw it up. The fries also tasted of old oil and we're compelely stuck together as if they were in a freezer too long. If you like frozen food stop here.

    Decent food but pricey. Not sure if it's really worth the money. Sparta Classic Diner is better.
