Tilly's is in one of those great dining cars with stool seats along the bar and small booths next to the windows. The Elvis and Beatles decorations help complete the old school ambience, which we enjoyed. My husband got the hot chili over rice and cheddar (daily special) and I got the veggie wrap with chicken and onion rings. Excellent,... More

While traveling to NYC from Western NY we decided to get off on this exit and look for food. We found the building interesting and decided to check it out. It looks like a 50's dinner. They serve American cuisine. Food was good and we where pleased with the prices. The staff friendly, the place, including the bathrooms was clean.... More

Friendly waitresses but cannot handle a crowd. Food ok. Should have expected it to be busy with the Jeep Jamboree in town. They only had one cook with people waiting out the door. Took forever just to get an egg sandwich.

You don't really see these places around anymore so its worth the trip. Homemade style, good ole greasy spoon diner like back in the day. Staff is tough like the neighborhood.

Stopped at Monticello Racetrack on our way home. Saw the sign for Tilly's Old time diner. We were pleasantly surprised. Nice menu, great service and good food. Prices very reasonable.

This is an old school diner with fresh home cooked food. Great service. Sit at the counter and watch the food prepared on the griddle. Don't forget to have some homemade pie before you leave
