Best Diner in the ATL – The Majestic Diner is a great place period. Great food, very fast, and very clean considering it's a diner! I highly recomend it. There Biscuits were decent but I would go for their eggs in the morning. I have not tried it at lunch or dinner but I think il be going soon. Great Place
must try at least once- preferably at 3 AM – I've lived in Atlanta for over 11 years and have never tried the Majestic till last week. I had always been told it's where the toothless women with big hair worked. A sight I could do without seeing. However, times have changed and this place is the best if you're looking for diner food, friendly staff and an entertaining crowd. I admit I was there at 3 AM and it was packed. There was even a "bouncer(?)" at the door for crowd control. Good diner food, fast and cheap, I love this place for nostalgia and the entertainment factor.
What's In A Name? – Majestic Diner takes you to a time when a diner was defined by three things; food, price, and friendly service. Majestic Diner is a shining example of these things, and sets the contemporary bar for what a diner should be like; great food at a very inexpensive price, great atmosphere, and fast, friendly service. There are not many of these classic Mom-and-Pop diners left, but Majestic is the best of the type that I have ever had the priviledge of dining at. The name even has added meaning once one has completed a full meal at this classic restarant located on historic Ponce De Leon Avenue.
Back To The Future – Diners are undergoing a resurgence across the country, but the Majestic doesn't need a comeback. It's been there for decades providing simple, low-cost (by local standards), and tasty food. It makes no pretense... this diner is not about nouveau cuisine but the basics. And it does the basic well.
Funky Ponce gets grits and eggs 'round the clock at this local landmark. – In Short
Oozing local-landmark status with its temperamental neon and Hopper-esque plate-glass window, this Ponce de Leon fixture is home to the roving human circus that keeps Ponce just ahead of the gentrification curve. It's also a favorite late-night sobering up stop for the young, hard-partying Highlands crowd. The dining room features a long narrow counter and small, comfortable booths. Service is always no-nonsense. This 24-hour diner features Southern-style short-order cooking, as well as traditional diner grub, sandwiches and icebox pies. Breakfast food and burgers are the most reliable dishes, and a pork chop and eggs with a pecan waffle and black coffee really does the trick after modest bingeing in the Highlands.
Finally!......a diner in Atlanta – This place is what it is. A diner in Atlanta. God forbid the south learn the ways of eating up north. No nonsense ordering and eating, and your coffee cup is always full! Great eats for the late night crowd. And to contradict the previous guy's poor rating, the 2 of us ate well for $13.
all types at all hours – Basic late night diner type of eats, but no where better to see the late night crowd sober up (next to many colorful characters.) The service is adequate is best, but you wouldn't want it any other way.
Great spot for people watching! – The Majestic late at night - theirs not much to say, but this is a great place to get over your hangover. The foods not bad, actually pretty good and the freaks you'll encounter will make you happy to get up and to church the next morning!
Mels diner Flo included! – Great late night grub, you get what you expect. The waitstaff is as you expect .. eat drop your check and get on with it. They give you everything you need and you can count on it. People watching here is fun and the homeless people occasionally staring in the window only add to the experience in my opinion. If you are the type who wants to order everything on the side, blah blah blah go home and microwave a lean cuisine. This place is for non fussy people and we like it that way =)
latenightadventure – The majestic diner is a wonderful time capsule of dining. The apple pie is a must! It is also a great place for psychiatrists or movie directors to view a wide range of personalities.
