Roscoe Diner

SR-17, Roscoe, NY - (607) 498-4405
Like so many large-scale, modern diners, the Roscoe aims to be all things to all people. Its multicultural menu provides a mealtime’s worth of reading: dozens of broiled steaks and chops, seafood that is fried, stuffed, poached, broiled, and sautéed, Italian fare from Alfredo to Ziti, Greek souvlaki, Jewish blintzes, French toast, Mexican salads, and “diet delights.”

"I should have turned around and left the Roscoe Diner as soon as I walked in the door. The front entranceway smelled like a urinal. The hostess was a real treat; she had the demeanor of a rattlesnake. If she smiled her face would crack. The waitress took several ..."   [Read More]

"I can't believe this place got a bad review! I thought the food was fresh and delicious, and the staff was more than friendly. I guess you just can't please everybody. Even the coffee was fresh and it was 3:00pm! I will definitely eat here ..."   [Read More]

There is a section of the menu devoted to wraps, and they are attractively assembled.

It's hard to find this these days in restaurants.  Crunchy outside and warm and soft on the inside.

The rice pudding is homemade (and, in fact, rice pudding is often the only homemade dessert in diners).  Roscoe's pudding is popular, although today's specimen was not good.

We took this picture on a trip upstate over a dozen years ago.  Little has changed at the truly famous Roscoe Diner, outside or in.
