GREAT!!! Not greasy or over-priced! – Sandy's is my ideal hole-in-the-wall diner. The food is great, neither greasy nor overpriced. The breakfast food is great, and I'm not going to complain about paying $7 for eggs, [fluffy, delicious!!!] pancakes, choice of meat and a coffee! The lunch and dinner menu doesn't disappoint either. They make a decent cheesesteak, and they bake fresh turkey every day and it is delicious! And I love the ambiance. It's a tiny whole-in-the-wall place. The tables are small, but definitely big enough for all of your food. And the waitress is an adorable, sweet little Greek woman.
I much prefer Sandy's to the nearby Midtown Diner, which often disappoints.
Greasy over-priced diner fare – I live nearby and have tried to go back to Sandy's 3 or 4 times after having been severly disappointed. It's just a little corner diner-y place, so my expectations weren't high to begin with. And I won't go on too much as I'm sure its fine for some for a quick greasy lunch or such. But they managed to put me off each time. The experience that sticks out is breakfast. I mean, how can you disappoint with breakfast? They did. My simple breakfast sandwich has - three times - involved greasy over-cooked eggs and tasteless (I'm guessing) week-old breakfast meat. And twice I got American cheese when I asked for something else. But my biggest complaint is prices. I get that its in the Fitler/Schuylkill Banks/Ritt district, so one should expect higher prices. But come on. $5 bucks plus for that crappy breakfast sandwich? Take my advice, find a sidewalk cart vendor over off Walnut or Market - you'll get the same food for half the price. I won't even go into lunch, and there's no way I would consider it for dinner. Lastly, if you're okay with harsh flourescent lighting and uncomfortable seats in a room that hasn't been redecorated since '78, go for it. Or better yet, head over to Midtown diner where there's at least some camp value.
