Stella’s Diner

Review by: Roadfood Team

Stella’s Diner is a busy restaurant in Syracuse, NY that is worth the wait.

What should I eat at Stella’s Diner?

The real test of a diner is the menu. Here is where Stella’s has some real hits (and some misses). They serve breakfast all day and any place that does that gets a thumbs up. On the first visit we had a breakfast platter with some of the most amazing potatoes we’ve ever tasted. They’re not hash browns, but not quite home fries either. They are sliced thin ala scalloped potatoes, then cooked on the flattop griddle with onions. The result is somewhat crispy, soft, with great potato texture and amazing onion flavor. We devoured them, barely coming up for air.

On a recent trip, we opted for a roasted turkey dinner, a good test of a diner.  The turkey was moist with lots of flavorful gravy and a rightfully herby dressing. It came with the necessary cranberry sauce. The Mashed potatoes are a perfect complement to a turkey dinner  and the skin on mashed potatoes with the turkey sandwich were pillowy, soft yet chunky and were well seasoned with butter and salt. The spiced apples (extra charge) were amazing! They were hot, with lots of cinnamon, and cooked down till soft.

We also tried the jambalaya: chicken, shrimp, sausage with tomatoes, creole seasoning and okra over rice.  Stella’s has a number of Cajun/Creole items on the menu along with the diner classics (club sandwiches, smothered dinners, omelettes).

The gravy-covered hot turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes was among the best I’ve tried. I chose corn as one of my sides and was happy the kernels were crisp and not mushy. The portion was big enough for two people to share. No waiting to sit at the counter.
