West 22 serves homemade chicken vegetable soup that is chock-full of celery, carrots, and chicken. A bowl for $3.25 is a very filling meal, and it is delicious.

I frequent this place at least once a week. The staff is friendly with the acceptance of 1 or 2 waitresses. Its always a quick and easy lunch. Stick to the specials, cheap and easy.

Wonderful dining atmosphere and never a wait for a table. The diner has good variety of dinner specials. All dinner specials are accompanied by a extra large salad or a soup. The food is delicious and not salty.
