Wasn't optimistic but turned out to be a great diner. Everything lunch for two under $20 should be. Friendly waitstaff, good pickles, thick cut fries, as many napkins as you need.
Waiter brought the boy's food first as he knew he was hungry and was on the verge of being a pain in my ass. Asked for an extra pickle, waiter brought three. That's class.
Tough location, but worth a walk. Well decorated and terrific lighting (not that dreary florescent as in Austin House or UJ's). T-Bone, Austin House, even Just Like Mother's - take a trip to Forest Diner and bring a notepad.
63rd and 108th St on the weird shopping strip next to some pizza place. Three sneakers.
