Just got into Jersey and we stopped at the Tick Tock. We couldn't wait to find a non-corporate joint. This was it. I've never had such a perfect sandwich. Chicken cutlet, fresh motzerella, some lettuce and tomato. My hat is off to them. It was huge and delicious. The staff was very friendly and I liked the managers walking the floor dressed to the 9's. I'll return for sure.

The last time we visited NYC, we couldn't get into this joint with a shoehorn. Fortunately for us, we stopped in this visit and since it was an off-time (mid-afternoon) we got a table right away. The whole experience was a good one and we'd recommend you give this one a try. It's well worth it.

To be honest, home-cooked meals aren't always of 5-star caliber. In fact, they rarely are,...and by rarely I mean never. But as the old expression goes, "There's no place like home." A more current incarnation is sung, "I've been all around the world, and as a matter of fact, there's no place left I want to go..." OK, so I haven't been "all around the world", but Tick Tock Diner is located in a bustling area in Midtown where a world of dining opportunities waits to be explored. But when my bandmates and I conclude a couple hours of rock-starring-it-up in a nearby studio and the question of where to eat arises, Tick Tock is usually understood. Not quite regulars but frequent enough to have a "usual table", I am very impressed by the service at Tick Tock. The staff is among the friendliest and most accommodating I've ever experienced. And the atmosphere is warm and cozy. As a vegan, my meal options are extremely limited, but the staff - as I said - are very accommodating and never question my cruelty-free interpretations of their set meals. While bland - in my opinion -, the food is prepared with a dash of TLC and I have never left feeling unsatisfied. Sometimes the meal - especially for me - doesn't always seem to justify the price. However, I keep coming back for more, so they must be doing something right. Tick Tock just feels like home,..but serves meas that you actually have to pay for.

We'd been to New York in 2005 but never found Tick Tock so when we stayed at the New Yorker in Apr 2007 we decided to give it a whirl. We thought we had found good places for breakfast but nothing compares to the Tick Tock! So much food, so little time. we were only staying for 5 days but managed to put on 5lb!!! Well worth it and staff were friendly too. Well worth a visit (or two)!

I order a buffolo Chicken wrap from Tick Tock. The guys were not nice there and it is next to the New Yorker Hotel, which is the unofficial restaurant for this low class hotel. The food there is just as subpar. The wrap had nearly no source, it was really really dry. Has zero taste of spicy. The soup is just as poor.

We stayed at the New Yorker Hotel (March 2007) for ten days and had all but one breakfast there (went to another place first morning.....that was yukky!!!) Breakfasts at Tick Tock were great, their omlettes were bootiful and the service was mostly excellent. The coffee was very nice too, in fact it was pretty much the only place in New York that I found a coffee to my taste. We also had a few evening meals there and again they were also delicious, the Sirloin steak on a garlic bread roll with salad and superb onion rings was my favourite. Whoops salivating on my keyboard now :-) Basically I would recommend Tick Tock diner to anyone that wants a good meal at a reasonable price. Enjoy.
