    My favorite diner in NYC and pretty much the only diner in hell's Kitchen. All breakfast food is great here! They are going through a gut renovation during Aug 2014, so even better things to come!

    Get a traditional diner-rific breakfast all day long – our favorite is the French Toast with 2 Eggs and a Side of Bacon. Try a smoothie too. Open 24/7!

    The best deal on the city. A couple of blocks off Broadway. It is so good and cheap you may see your favorite local ensemble member from on of the shows eating next to you!

    So many options, many delicious. I would recommend the French toast and the pancakes. The unlimited coffee just make it feel like paradise.

    Huge menu so everyone can find something they like. Voted Best Diner in Manhattan. Lots of locals here so exactly what we were looking for. Great recommendation from our concierge.

    Went here because it was featured on "Smash" for its apple pie. Pie was tasty, as was the chicken noodle soup. Love the classic feel inside!

    My favorite diner in Midtown. During breakfast it seems like everything comes with coffee, and the coffee is damned good for what I'd expect from a diner.

    Just a regular diner. Lots of options. Good diner food for good prices. Loved the chili. Cozy place to sit & relax in an area where that isn't so available.

    The diner experience that never let's you down, solace in the fact that Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld cooked up some of their best ideas on late nights here.

    Chicken soup is the best! Never order liver late hours. Mashed potatoes are great. Fried calmari or fried shrimp is too oily, don't try! Have fun! @milanamay

    Excellent.typical American breakfast. Service was fast and nice people, be sure to be there before 11:00... breakfast combo menu is not served after that time

    Stopped by for the breakfast platter special. The scrambled eggs were runny and the potatoes didn't have much flavor. On the plus side they do have Cholula at every table and OJ comes with the meal.

    Monster menu! If you are craving it... They probably serve it. Vegetarian panini on grilled ciabatta is good.

    Lots of theatre folk: actors, crew, directors. So... you know... Be careful who you're trashing over your lunch special. (You shouldn't be trashing other theatre peeps anyway. Have some self-respect.)

    I don't think I've eaten at a worse location. My omelette was inedible and had egg shells in it, my friends burger was plasticky and uncooked, and the potatoes were scraps. Also seemed unclean.
