A few weeks ago, I went up to the Golden Star Diner in Ringoes. I haven’t been up that way, but my good friend Eric and I drove up. It was nice to catch up. The Golden Star is just under an hour north.
We got there around 5:30, and it wasn’t too crowded.
There isn’t anything too unique about the diner. It’s an old building, with outdated furnishings. It does have a cute little outdoor pond, and they were decorated for the outside.
The inside has a bar with plenty of booths and tables. We sat in a peaceful booth which was nice.
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh, and I have no complaints. The waitress refilled it often. There wasn’t anything too special about it, but it wasn’t bad.
The Golden Star Diner has everything of a typical diner. There are a lot more breakfast options including several omelets. There were also several wraps, sandwiches, and Greek specialties. I decided the Greek Gyro Platter caught my eye and ordered that.
The Greek Gyro platter came with a Greek Gyro and Greek salad. I was indifferent about it. I could have used more food, and I hesitate to call it a “platter.” I don’t know why I think gyros will ever be easy eats but I was able to not be as messy as possible.
I was still hungry so decided to order bread pudding. The bread pudding was decent, except it was doused with too much cinnamon. It wasn’t my least favorite but not my favorite either.
The waitress was friendly and refilled our beverages often. Our food also came out exceptionally quickly, which is always wonderful when you’re hungry.
For my soup, platter, coffee, and dessert it was $20.
Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back?
The Golden Star Diner was right in the middle as far as diners go. It wasn’t especially good or bad. I wouldn’t be opposed to going back, but it wouldn’t be my first choice.
