Food was good, service was friendly and good, surroundings were bright, clean, modest. This is a good small-town family eatery.

Homemade soups and creative sandwiches that you don't find anywhere else. I had a chicken wrap called the Alpshonie (or... More

Went there for a lunch special paid same price as a regular meal. My meal was good but wish they made you aware inside as to what was today's lunch special. The waiter was ver attentive and the place looked clean. Could be a little quicker on turn around time since you are on lunch.

If you blink you may miss this diner, so be aware it's there and be sure to stop at the bakery next door. The decor is nice with a music and car theme and it was very clean. I ordered the buffalo chicken sandwich and my husband had a patty melt. Both were served on extremely fresh buns and cooked... More

This restaurant is one of my favorites in Amherst. They have authentic Syrian food and the best pizza on earth. Danny's Pizza is Taylor made to my taste buds!!!
