I have been dining in this diner for over 25 years and have never had a bad meal. The food is consistently excellent, the prices are better than average and the staff are very accommodating. I always use this diner as my yard stick when it comes to diners but none that I have visited can compare.

we stopped patronizing this restaurant because of the small portions and order not prepared as requested and owners overall rudeness when issues presented to them and over priced for food portions

In town for business, so checked TripAdvisor for ideas. The Fame Diner suited my mood, and the reviews confirmed it was worth the short drive. The reviews are right. Food is good, and the choices are good. The service in incredible. Diner was packed, maybe for Washington's Birthday. One waitress flew through the place and took great care of us... More

I've been coming to Fame Diner for over 14yrs. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Sup, always had a good filling over satisified with my meals. Excellent cup of coffee anytime and the service is amazing. Totally a neighborhood Gem!

We have been going to Fame for breakfast for about 20 years now. Never realized it was on Tripadvisor. I cannot pick what is the best thing about Fame! Fresh ingredients, fantastic service (our coffee cups are always refilled before we even ask) and reasonable prices. Great neighborhood gem.

Dad and I recently purchased a new home in Maspeth and, while our home was being renovated, ate several dozen meals at the Fame Diner. We were never disappointed. Very friendly local diner with accommodating and friendly owners and staff. Breakfasts are probably the best in the area and their Pasta Dinner Specials can't be beat. Tough to beat $12... More
