Not at all like a deli, not a sign of anything Greek. The Diner in Lilburn is genuine, old fashioned, and authentic in look, feel, and menu options.

It’s long and thin inside, with a few round stools near the counter top in the middle, and booths on the edges.  Photos and images of flags, cars, NASCAR drivers, Elvis, and Marilyn Monroe are on the walls. The owner’s ICSA Hall of Fame plaque rests just above the ceramic cup with his name on it. The crowd is friendly, and tends to draw you into a very amiable conversation.

Monday through Friday there are lunch specials, with a main dish (burger or sandwich), a side and a drink for $5.99. I had the cheeseburger recently. The fries were hot and tasty and burgers are all the better when they come piping hot right off the grill, as mine did. Even with simple ingredients, a hot burger, freshly made, is just delicious.

Verdict: What all diners used to be like. Simple honest food. For the true-to-life ambience, highly recommended.
