Welcome to Main Street Diner

A part of American history since the 1870’s,the term “diner” is a derivative of “dining car”and owes its distinctive appearance to therailroad dining cars from which they are patterned.At first, decommissioned railroad cars and trolleyswere used because they were easy to transport. Intime, manufacturers built prefabricated buildingswith the look of a dining car.

The Main Street Diner is a late 1950’s Master Diner. It was built in New Jersey, brought to Hempstead,Long Island, New York, and then shipped into town. This classic diner was then laid on a foundation with a brick façade along its front, and stainless steel gleaming from all around. Later, a back room was attached to the diner, which was used as a storage room. In 2008, the diner was renovated, and this back room became the kitchen where all the authentic American cooking is done today.

The Main Street Diner kept many of its original features, such as the beautiful terrazzo flooring, railroad car lighting and gleaming stainless steel inside and out. We have provided a comfortable setting for everyone who comes into the Diner. Every individual is treated like family. Extremely fast, friendly, courteous staff, and great food, as always.We look forward to making your dining experience more enjoyable while still keeping the flavor of times past.Authentic American cuisine is our specialty. Enjoy your dining experience here at the Main Street Diner.

This Diner takes you back some years, even a lil before my time. I’m a young dude with an old soul I guess you can say lol. I love everything about the diner. Great service at all times. They have some old school jukeboxes from back in the day, throw a quarter in & listen to some...

Been coming here for quite a few years with family, friends and my kids. Great food, great service. Others that complain about prices know nothing about quality food. Want cheap go to some low class dump. Want quality? Come here and the food os fresh ALWAYS! Only diner I go to...
