Decent Diners in Northeast?

I'm meeting cousins from North Jersey (who just called) in the Northeast for lunch today. They'd like to go to a diner.

Are there any good diners in the Northest? I gave up on the Country Club a few years ago, and the Mayfair's main attraction is its design, not its food.

A good Jewish deli could work, too. The Stein Boys Famous Deli on Krewstown is the only one I know.

The Dining Car on Frankford Ave just south of Academy is ok. Delis, you have Casino Deli at Welsh and the Blvd and Jack's Deli on Bustleton. Both are mediocre relative to what someone from North jersey is going to be used to.

thanks.

We would up at Toscana 52 on Street Road near the PA Turnpike, since the customer my cousin was calling upon recommended it.

I've posted a review separately but, bottom line, not worth a special trip for sure. Adequate if you're in the immediate neighborhood and are hungry and not too picky.

Here's the review.
