This friendly, old fashioned dinor has some of the best Greek sauce I have ever tasted. The staff is exceptionally friendly and watching the grill cook create the orders before your eyes is great. Witness fresh, clean ingredients being made into individual requests. The only drawback is that it is a tiny space and can fill up quickly.

This dinor is definitely a restaurant that you want to stop at and keep returning to... the staff was friendly, the dinor is fantastic and the food was great. I stopped today for the first time and will be going back. So don't just drive by....

If you enjoy seeing and feeling what it was like to have a treat and eating away from your wife's or mom's kitchen in the 1930s/1940s, then this dinor is the place to try. Almost as entering the Twilight Zone! Very small with a long counter and a few booths, the food is excellent from breakfast through dinner with old... More

What a cute step back into the 50-60's! This place has alot of nostalgia and a good selection of food. Food is good and the staff very friendly. The dinor is small, so timing is necessary to get a seat. Plenty of parking. They are closed on Mondays.

It's like a homemade meal. If I came home for lunch and my mom made me a club sandwich with a side of fresh fries, and a freshly baked piece of pie, this is what it would taste like. Did I mention the pie? Oh my GOD! THE PIE!!! I would give this place 6 or 7 stars if I... More

My family and I took a weekend trip to Erie and made a point to stop by the Dinor. The extra few miles was well worth it. The food was amazing, the kids loved the atmosphere (so did the adults), and the staff went above and beyond to make it a day well remembered. They all sang Happy Birthday to... More

The Greek Fries are enough for 2 then add some Greek Smith Hotdogs and you are set! It is a must when in the area.

My wife and I had breakfast at this charming, movie set of a place. Our meals were served quickly, and were generous and perfect. Our waitress, Shanna, was friendly and genuinely cared about our satisfaction. It's a bit off the beaten path, but that's part of its charm. We have a new favorite restaurant next time we're through Erie.
