This review is completely WRONG! Every single time I've been to this diner (which has been many, many times) I have received wonderful, prompt, quick service. Waitstaff was as friendly as a diner waitstaff ought to be. The food was always hot or cold as required. Portions were good and the food, wonderful!! I love diners, and I guess diner food isn't good enough for this person. This is one of my favorite diners. Students from the Culinary Institute of America frequent this place (I am a student there as well) and we all love the food. I don't see how so many hundreds of students can be wrong. You must have had a bad server, which happens in the best of places. Don't blow off a place after one bad meal. Any good food lover knows enough that every place can have a bad server or bad night and that does not reflect badly on them. This is a wonderful diner with fun retro decor and the menu is huge. you are bound to find something you will love, from the chicken tenders, to the meatloaf to the crispy fries and great, massive ice cream sundaes. Give the Eveready a chance, it is fantastic.
