Would return to this restaurant - actually did in a span of just a couple days. Would recommend to friends.
Ordered delivery found through Yelp once from here, dined in on another occasion a couple days later.
The menu is *massive*. I looked it over the first night and noticed how huge it was. Only wanted cheesesteaks, so it was easy.
When we went to the diner a couple nights later, I joked to a friend to name the first food he could think of... that I was sure it would be on the menu.
"Monte Cristo," he said. Yep, it's in there.
So we wanted cheesesteaks delivered to our downtown hotel at 2:30 in the morning. Found Midtown Diner on Yelp and called them up. Didn't expect much in the way of customer service in a 2:30am call to a downtown diner... but was shocked by the result. Guy on the phone was friendly, patient and made sure of the accuracy of the order. Sandwiches arrived hot, tasty and better than expected.
Prices were very reasonable.
Based on the positive experience, we visited the diner later on. Service, once again, was friendly and quick. Server was patient with us and made suggestions on the order.
Had a chicken sandwich, which was good. Certainly met expectations.
Upon checking out at the front register, met the guy who answered the phone when we'd ordered delivery. Said he'd owned the place for 30 years... and clearly took pride in his establishment. I love that. It was a pleasure meeting him.
Oh yeah... we tried scrapple. Yikes. Not the Diner's fault. Not sure how that's a "thing" in Philly.
Need downtown delivery? Call 'em up.
In Center CIty and looking for a Diner with something for everyone? Stop on by.
