Fast and pleasant service with consistently decent diner food at fair prices. Atmosphere is totally old school at best but that adds to the charm.

...Ok, I had cheese on the eggs, but give me a break! Like too many restaurants, these people overcharge you with arbitrary prices and don't provide an intelligble receipt, if at all. After checking the menu and questioning the sheister behind the counter, he gave me $2 back and a bunch of lame excuses.

The cheeseburgers are great! Very quick delivery, good value. The decor is outdated, but it's a nice place to grab a quick bite.

They are less expensive than most diners in this area, and I think the food definitely measures up. I particularly like their pancakes, which are flavorful and have a perfect consistency. The servers are nice, but sometimes slow, and the place isn't air-conditioned well enough in the heat of August--but I'd go here anyway, because of the great pancakes and the reasonable prices. It's like a throw-back to a different decade.

They can't get an order right when calling for a delivery. Order grilled cheese...you will get a hamburger. Order rye bread...you'll get white bread. Order coffee black..you'll get tea with milk in it. (By the way coffee is like water) How they stay in business is beyond me. I think we need a better place on the upper westside, so we don't have to be stuck with this incompetent "greasy spoon".

I've been going to 3 Star since I was 12. Previous review was correct in saying that it's lost some luster since the owner left to start a new diner. Food is still quality and service is what you should expect at a place that needs high turnover. It's the standard Greasy Spoon. Definitely worth the investment if you're in for a quick breakfast or quick sandwich.

When the owner took off to open a new diner on Houston, he took with him what ever made 3 Stars outstanding. There is a young woman behind the counter now, that takes your order, places it on the counter in front of you, forgets it yours, places it back on the counter behind her while she waits for its owner to comes for it. And now, your order sits there getting cold until you can get her attention again- she will take a call before a human in front of her- to tell her you have been there all along. We still order from here, but we wont go in person. Too frustrating.
