2020 Best Diners in New York Area

Retro Diners in New York

At a classic American diner you can count on a satisfying meal for little dough, and maybe a side of sass from your waitress. Snag a seat at the counter or settle in at a vinyl booth and dig into comfort food like hamburgers, fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, and milkshakes.

From 1950s-style soda fountains to modern eateries putting a fresh spin on old favorites, these Top Diners in New York, presented in alphabetical order, go above and beyond your average greasy spoon.
