This diner has been in existence since 1974 and prides itself on a great appearance and excellent staff. The Pot Roast Melt Sandwich was new to me but most definitely was a patron's delight. Give the VIP Diner a try. You will not regret it.

I have patronized this diner for the past 5 years. I love coming here for breakfast... it's an old school diner. The service and food are good. I would recommend VIP Diner for breakfast.

Service was mediocre. Food was not properly prepared. After watching another diner leave saying food was disgusting, we also left. Having related our thoughts we were in no way compensated. Never will go there or recommend this dive to anyone.
