This diner has some of the better lunch specials I've seen (both the typical salad/sandwich menu you expect and then some nice alternatives) and they are generous in their portion sizes. Prices are very reasonable and the service is great.

I hadn't been to this particular diner in years, but came recently on a visit with friends. The food was good, the service as well, and the atmosphere left room for a long time of bantering with friends. Recommended.
