From the neon signs to the worn seats, it feels like very little has changed in this diner over the past few decades. The menu is worn, but filled with a good variety of simple options. We all found our meals tasted good and were quite filling. The waiting staff were attentive. Prices were reasonable. As a visitor from out... More

We go to Broadway lunch at least once a month and it's never a disappointment. Food is great, service is great and for lunch it's very inexpensive. Always specials that you would want to try. It looks like a typical diner but it's far above any in the area.

Despite their name, Broadway Lunch has always been appreciated more for their perfectly made, affordable breakfasts than for their lunches or dinners. Unless, of course, you're a fan of their meat sauce dogs, which I am not (best lunch in the area, imo, is actually up the block at the Bellevue Cafe, and the best dinner is around the corner...

This is basically a diner, with diner type meals. Large size portions at a very reasonable price and very good service, even when crowded, which is quite often, due to the fact that it is not that large of a place and the food is so good, and so cheap.

Broadway Lunch has the best Hot Dogs in Town. Their meat sauce is amazing. They also have a nice breakfast menu. Seating is limited but great diner food! Worth the trip.

They are noted for their Hot Dogs with meat sauce - EXCELLANT! But they also offer a great variety of other foods and specials. Breakfast is great as are the soups, salads and sandwiches. I have been going here for the past 25 + years and never had a bad meal. Great value and the best staff you can ask... More

They have wonderful prices and the breakfast is great. Gotta love the classics like corned beef hash. Always nice staff. Quick service.

Whether you are looking to have breakfast, lunch or dinner, you won't be disappointed. Portions are large enough to share, the soups are excelling(especially the Chicken Pastine) and the desserts are fresh and sinfully good! Be prepared to leave with take home containers!

I was visiting New York due to a death in my family, so the group of us (11 in all) took a trip to Broadway Lunch for dinner after the viewing. Even though I had grown up in the area, I had never been to this diner before, and I must say that the food and service were definitely above... More

Been going here for years. Neighborhood diner ran by a very nice couple. Two dogs all the way bury the onions and French fries with gravy or cheese. Yum. Parking can be tough. Close enough for us to walk. Great little place.
