    This place is a well-oiled machine! The portions are huge and meant for hangovers or comfort. I love it to bits.

    Seinfeld hype aside, this is an excellent local diner. Great place to sit at the bar with a cup of coffee and the newspaper

    Utensils where really dirty and the manager didn't do anything about it! And he put up a fight when we asked for plastic utensils... My first time and would be my last!

    It may only have used its exterior in Seinfeld, but it's still iconic for anyone who loves the show.

    Seinfeld was NOT filmed inside here: only the outside was used on the show. There is a signed poster inside. Like most diners, cash only, but handy in that they actually have an ATM.

    It's the restaurant that features in every Seinfeld episode. Take a picture of the place, but don't go in. Some of their waiters can't even speak English. Food is average. It's not worth it.

    I strictly went here for "Seinfeld". The service is incredibly fast and I ordered Tom's "famous" shishkabob which was sub par. Cool diner-like atmosphere but I would say just get your pic and leave.

    When you ask for a double burger, it is not 2 patties as you'd suspect, it's actually 2 glorious whole burgers. So good and worth it.

    Though the facade is only featured on Seinfeld, I felt like I walked right onto set; waitress spent the entire hour+ eating(complete with ice cream @8 AM?) and picking pimples off her face. WWGD?

    They never filmed Seinfeld here, just the exterior. Jerry Seinfeld & Jason Alexander did film an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee as their famous characters in season 3 "The Over-Cheer" ☺

    Don't bother going inside, just take a picture of the outside and leave. Interior is not like the Seinfeld series, burgers are regular and no credit cards are accepted.
