A few weeks ago, I went to the Golden Eagle Diner in Levittown, PA. It’s only about a half an hour away and while it doesn’t count towards my New Jersey Diner total, it’s still local to me. I had heard the Golden Eagle Diner was a good diner. I had a free evening so I thought, why not head up there?
In summary, I wish I hadn’t.
The Golden Eagle Diner does have one thing going for it and that’s the atmosphere. The diner has huge windows, plenty of parking and the inside has interesting and unique tables. We sat in a cute booth.
The waitress was nice. She took our orders but it felt as if she was avoiding our table. There were only two other parties in the restaurant so it wasn’t crowded. She only came over to our table to bring the drinks and then the food.
The Golden Eagle diner has all of the typical “diner” options. I ordered a burger. The waitress asked if I wanted Cole slaw and a pickle. I said yes, little did I know the Cole slaw and pickle would be an extra $2 charge. I don’t love cole slaw enough to order it as an extra side. I’ve never been to a restaurant that charged for Cole slaw. The burger itself was clearly a frozen patty that they overcooked. Nothing from anyone’s meal looked fresh. It was fairly obvious everything was frozen and then cooked in the microwave. It’s hard to truly mess up a burger but they came close. It was edible but it wasn’t great.
The food was in the worst five restaurants I’ve been too.
For my coffee, burger and extra Cole slaw it was $20. It wasn’t worth it at all.
Overall thoughts/Would I come Back?
This was one of the worst diners I’ve been too and I probably won’t be back. I never say never but there would have to be a very good reason for me to go…
Questions for you:
