Dakota Diner Since Childhood

restaurant out slider editedSince I moved to Staten Island in the 70s I remember going to the Dakota Diner for breakfast, lunch dinner and late night snacks. I have been going to this diner since I was 13 years old. The food has always been excellent, the service quick and efficient the and the portions generous. The Dakota Diner was the place you went to after movies, clubs and any kind of night out. They were always open late during my teen years. It was a great place to go with friends. When I started a business on Staten Island they were always open after my business was closed late at night, when no one else was open. It was a place to come and relax, and be served with a smile. When I had children of my own The Dakota Diner was always there to feed my family with fun breakfasts, quick lunches and filling dinners where everyone could find something they liked. 

The value of a meal at the Dakota Diner has always been great. There's always a special for the budget conscious. There are elaborate meals with a wide variety. I always feel welcome to sit and chat, and the staff is always there to refill a cup of coffee or drink when you need it. They offer a large selection of salads, sandwiches and burgers that seems endless. There is a long list of dinner specials that can be served a la carte or with a salad or soup or the works, Some specials include soup or salad, a soft drink, main course, two sides and dessert. It's awesome. They have an on premises baker which ensures fresh baked cakes, pies and delicious desserts. The Dakota Diner is a true traditional diner with a menu that dwarfs most other diners on Staten Island. 

If you came to the Dakota Diner years ago and have strayed to some of the newer places you may want to try coming home to a tradition of value ad service. The food and service is as good as it ever was. The Dakota stands for quality, consistency and service. You won't be disappointed. If you are new to the Island find out why The Dakota Diner has been an icon here since 1975.   D

Dakota Diner – Thank for being there all these years. 

A Loyal and Happy Customer
