Stopped in for a bite and it was the most disappointing meal I ever had! The pickle was the only good part! I wish I would have read some of these reviews before I went! Prices are outrageous for what you get.

This was JUST terrible. 2 diet pepsi, a salad, corned beef sandwich (includes "side of coleslaw") Ruben sandwich and mashed potato. Your total? $70.05! First, 2oz of coleslaw does not a side make. $5+ for INSTANT mashed potato is a crime! The service was terrible and they had the audacity to recommend an 18%-20% tip. Outrageous! I kid you not, a woman left in an ambulance while we were there. I'm confident it was AFTER she saw the bill! Junior's was less money, more personable and the food was WAY better.

Food is good, prices are not. Nice atmosphere but I saw people shaking the heads when reading the menu prices. If you like dessert,splurge on the cheesecake which is excellent but visit the ATM first.

I stumbled into this diner, thinking i'd save myself a long walk down to one of my favorites downtown. Worst mistake i've made in a while. The food was incredible, incredibly expensive. Completely defeats the purpose of going to a diner. I got some eggs and coffee. My girlfriend got a sandwich and a tea. Total cost -- 55 dollars. It would have been cheaper to just take a taxi down to Donut in Park Slope, or to Daniella's in Williamsburg, or ANYWHERE else. To the gentleman who mentioned below - "but you're in new york" ... I know I am in New York, I've lived here for 10 years! I just happen to stay downtown where things are reasonable. Shame on me for not walking out when I looked at the prices.

I should have known when it was the only restaurant around without a wait. I should have walked out when I saw the prices. Hardly a comparision to any sandwich I have ever had. $60 for 2 people to have a sandwich?

Hey guy who posted "stop being so cheap!" This diner has ridiculous prices even for Time Square standards. I'm a native new yorker and when I saw the menu, my wife and I took our three kids somewhere else, what a joke/ripoff. Travelers BEWARE, just because you are in NYC you dont have to pay these ENORMOUS prices. I walked two blocks away and had a bowl of Minestrone $4.00 and a slice $2.50, ansd a bud light $4.00. Get a Clue Dude

I agree with you, I don't get the complaints. I love this place, it's the epitome of the true New York City experience. So the food's a little pricey. I've always found it to be terrific, hot and plentiful. But it's the atmosphere I really love. It's a great casual diner and the perfect way to start off your day in the Big Apple. So if you are visiting the city and want a great diner experience, check it out.
