Their specials are great-- you get a big salad, a nice cup of soup, a main course, potato, veggies and sometimes a glass of wine. Most of the staff is nice and speedy

I grew up on the Upper Eastside, so this may come off bias, but I don't care! 3 Star is wonderful coffee shoppe and I highly recommend them. Not only do they have the best diner food in the area but their staff has got friendliest I've encountered - a fine family! Whether you're having Sunday brunch or late night afterhour burger, 3 Star is that way to go!

The first time I went there it was great! The waiters are all nice, the food was delicious and it came in like 4 minutes! I have been going there for a long time and it is always great! They even decorate it for fun holidays like Halloween and Easter! Also it's open for like 24/7! Like when I saw a broadway play at night and I was hungry they were open; even at 11:00 at night! Awesome!

I've eaten inside the restaurant once.. and it was very speedy and we got exactly what we ordered. My grilled cheese looked like it had been microwaved instead of grilled.. and tasted like it too. I ordered a ceasar salad for delivery once and I got a bowl of lettuce, and a cup of ceasar dressing- don't order this. It's not bad... *shrug*... just don't get mad if the guy who takes phone orders tells you to "relax"... he does it to me all the time. hahahaha.

I order from 3 Star all the time. They always load you up on food and show up before I'm ready so I have to hurry when the call comes up. I have eaten in the diner as well and though sometimes you can wait a while, the food is good and good portions-I usually take half my meal home with me. They are always friendly and courteous. Often the place is packed and to me that says worth it. I get breakfast-with french fries, hint hint, and open faced turkey most often. They make a great milkshake too, and expect it to be a little melted if you order delivery-it is ice cream (duh-I never say that but here I'll make exception). Overall I really like this place, good home cooked food at reasonable prices (portions are huge remember). Thumbs up from me, 3 Star!

Not sure where the negativity is coming from either. We've ordered from here at any hour and the food is consistently good, hot, tasty diner food. I've always found the service helpful and pretty friendly. The deliveries? Quick enough that I occasionally forget to have my money ready. Of course we only get breakfast food and burgers - but then again, perfect pancakes and hearty Burger Deluxes are what I want from a diner. Is it perfect? Of course not. Does it beat most other run of the mill diner's I've been to in the city? Absolutely.

I'm not sure why I have had a completely different experience compared to the other reviewers on this site. I've been living in nthe UES for 3 years and have consistently ordered from 3 star. The food is great, not greasy and the delivery is superfast, i've ordered in the morning, afternoon and even at 2am...this place is consistently good. I've tried other diners up here and have been dissapointed. The grilled chicken, eggs, hamburgers and souvlaki sandwiches are great!!
