The Dix Hills Diner

Dix Hills Diner Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

It's back!!!!  And so good. 

This was once my "go-to" diner.   And then, sadly, the quality went downhill.  With so many really good diners on Long Island, there's no reason to accept mediocrity.  So we found other places.

But I've been hearing good things about this diner lately, so on a recent Sunday afternoon, I decided to give it a try.  And I'm glad I did. 

Décor is clean, bright and modern.  Wait staff wear crisp black uniforms.  Service is friendly and efficient.  Menu is extensive but not overwhelming. 

Scrambled eggs were light and fluffy.  French fries were hot and crisp.  Cranberry Pecan Salad (an interesting mix  of tomato, cucumber, dried cranberries, candied pecans and  gorgonzola cheese, and I added chicken) was huge, with a generous serving of creamy salad dressing on the side.  Next time I might try a burger, they have some interesting and unusual options (a Jack Daniels burger?  sounds good.)

On another occasion, we did takeout.  Our order was filled quickly, the food was fresh and hot.  Banana walnut pancakes featured walnuts and banana slices.  Sandwiches from the grill were accompanied by a generous portion of French fries and a garnish of onion rings, as well as a dish of cole  slaw and a pickle.

It's good to have an old favorite back.

Sounds good! The salad is very similar to my go-to salad, just sub feta for that gorgonzola.
