    Pretty good hamburgers. On the other hand one of the worst service and grumpiest staff I've seen in New York.

    Only a diner like Odessa could make hash browns taste this good. How do they do it?

    Pretty solid 24 hour diner. Don't remember what I got because I was blacked out but I know I woke up satisfied.

    Pierogi and kielbasa brunch, available every day till late, is a NYC fav meal.

    Eastern European dive and diner with excellent French toast (made with homemade challah) and very good blintzes. Open 24 hours.

  • Travis M.

    Hipster city. Pbrs and high life.

    Travis McNulty · September 1, 2013
  • Bruce G.

    Great old polish style diner 24 hours a day.T cash only for deliveries. Way around it is to use menu pages or one of the other menu services like SEAMLESS to use credit cards there for delivery.

    Bruce Grilikhes · July 14, 2013
  • Courtney W.

    Dear skater and rock a billy bartenders. Please less Buzzcocks and Fugazi. Play more fierce music like Sylvester and Donna Summer. Love your loyal Friday night customer.

    Come on Tuesdays and Sundays to hang out with Dave the Bardtender. Old-school east village dude.

    This ’80s-era establishment is still going strong! Odessa wins the heart of old and young residents alike for the comfort food and 24-hour service on weekends.

    Sink into a dark booth with friends, a whiskey or a coffee and unwind. Except for the conspicuous absence of cigarette smoke it's the nostalgic NYC diner experience that's all but disappeared.

    Michael Brady · April 20, 2013
  • Don P.

    Best service I have had in this city in recent memory.

    Don Pflaster · February 17, 2013
  • Ashley D.

    I've been here twice. And twice, the cups and silverware were FILTHY. Always request paper cups and plastic food utensils when coming here.

    Ashley Del Valle · January 24, 2013
  • Natalie G.

    The potato pancake with sour cream is the bomb!

    Natalie Gomer · January 23, 2013
  • Lee W.

    Not Russian food per se, like it's described in some guides, but rather 'American borscht belt' food. The cafe, not necessarily the restaurant, is a great place to sit unhurriedly with a friend.

    Lee Waters · December 31, 2012
  • Kim P.

    Come after 3:30 am, share a plate of deliciously awful disco fries with me.

    Terry ordered the veggie pirogies. "Really, Joe, it's just the kind of thing we have to start getting used to. Like it or not, our world is getting bigger."—Charlie Huston, Half the Blood of Brooklyn Read more

    Tip Mike. He's the one in black.

    Cawfee and convo. Ask for the million dollars in a bag or the pile of 20's in a plastic bag.

    Eugene L · April 12, 2012
  • Jonisue C.

    They let us hoop here!

    Jonisue Cleavenger · March 25, 2012
  • Talia F.

    Get some fried pierogies and blintzes! Gotta go with the cheese blintz, it's the classic!

    Talia Fisher · March 10, 2012
  • Glen R.

    They can't make eggs! Service is good thou

    Glen Roy · February 20, 2012

    Odessa Combination Platter! Kielbasa, potato pancake, perogis, and stuffed cabbage! Mmmmmmm.......

    Ask for Willy every time. He reminds you of Crusty the Clown!!

    Stephanie Olivar · January 4, 2012

    Graham J. · January 1, 2012

    Great neighbors! Come by @RaysCandyStore next door afterward for a snack!!! 113 Avenue A

  • Craig C.

    Probably the best red stucco ceiling on Ave A btw 7th and St. Marks. The breakfast special is pretty good too.

    Craig Cannon · October 18, 2011
  • Zia Z.

    Get the chicken noodle or chicken rice soup. Trust me.

    Zia Z. · August 23, 2011
  • Jorge O.

    If you're battling a cold, get a matzoh ball soup and a grilled cheese sandwich with kieblasa. The sausage is unwieldy, but oh so good. Perfect comfort food.

    Jorge Ortiz · August 18, 2011
  • Zia Z.

    Some of the best chicken noodle soup ever.

    Zia Z. · July 16, 2011
  • Karin R.

    I can have an omelet and my date can have a beer :) Awesome haha!!

    Karin Rendelman · June 5, 2011
  • Amy C.

    Try the Pork Chops - Brined in vanilla and molasses. Tender and amazing.

    Amy Cao · May 29, 2011
  • Laura N.

    Divey and fantastic, sauerkraut and mushroom boiled pirogues rock the house.

    Laura Notini · May 15, 2011
  • jeannie

    Try the Bloody Mary - Nice and spicy.

    jeannie · May 8, 2011
  • Rent the Runway

    Open 24 hours and delivers! Make sure you don't have bills over $20 when they get to you.

  • Harrison M.

    Challah grilled cheese , do it

    Harrison Markey · April 18, 2011
  • Kyle S.

    Agree with Ken. This is the East Village Tom's. Although it's missing that chipotle hot sauce, it makes up for it with perogies.

    Kyle Siskey · April 2, 2011
  • Samantha I.

    Ziggy & Dave will hook you up with drinks!
