This is a great little place for fast good food and friendless service. We've been coming here for years. The staff is attentive and FAST. Prices are great for the value of the meal and quick service. The salad buffet is smaller with limited items...More

The Bethlehem Diner served us a two-star food but gave us four-star service. Like many diner divers, we ordered breakfast. My wife's waffle was a bit rubbery in texture. My omelet was overcooked. The home-fries were uninspired and under seasoned. The coffee was reasonably good,...More

Nice find near our hotel. For a simple meal the gyro pita with cole slaw and fries was tasty goodness. For dessert, chocolate ice cream with whip cream and chocolate syrup. Mmm good. Left totally satisfied and ready to relax. Go, try it out.
