If Leo Tolstoy skipped writing “War and Peace” and decided to create an epic restaurant menu in its place, it might have resembled the Broadway Diner’s massive tome. The approach here is simple: world class home cooking. That’s a Baltimore home, Italian home, Greek home, and Asian home to name a few. Even on the diner’s busiest days we’ve never waited more than 10 minutes to be seated in such a spacious place by an always friendly staff. Skip trying the diner’s famous crispy fries, Greek omelette, or Chicken Szechuan at your own peril.
