Pittsburgh's Dor-Stop Diner

I travel two or three times a year up to Pittsburgh, and during my most recent visit I was pleased to check out the Dor-Stop Diner, located in the city's Dormont neighborhood. The Dor-Stop Diner was featured on one of Food Network's

Although the diner gets a steady traffic of customers, we didn't have to wait long on Sunday for a table. The food was hearty and quite good. I had the pumpkin hotcakes, which had a cake-like texture. Really delicious. The potato pancakes were also very good.

Neither of us had the Dor-Stop's Stuffed Raspberry French Toast, but it looked as good on a nearby table as it had on TV. The service was good too.

I didn't taste the Eggs Benedict, but these food bloggers insist that dish was the best they'd ever tasted.

There was a time when these kinds of diners could easily be found in every neighborhood of a city. It's sad that they are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Well, if life takes you to the Pittsburgh area, stop in. It's worth a detour.
