    This is the worst diner I've ever been to and I would never go back. The service was awful and the food sucks. As for Seinfeld, the interior if Tom's was shot on a Hollywood soundstage, not here.

    Inspiration for Seinfeld and that annoying Suzanne Vega song that was played constantly in it's heyday. Don't come here for personality or service and you won't be letdown. Basic diner plates, crowded
