Chasing the DDD fame, we had to hit it up on a recent vacation. The food was fantastic. It was so busy, and I loved how the staff just kept right up laughing and making conversation the whole time. Great place to eat.

Went to Mike's City Diner for breakfast on our last day in Boston. Table ordered: Dynamic Duo (two pancakes, two eggs, 3 slices of bacon), French Toast, and a Breakfast Sandwich (hot sausage). Service was prompt and the food was top notch. Portions are large,...liked back before COVID. One star off because it was a bit loud. It's not a big place and there's not that much I think they could do about the issue.More

While visiting Boston we found this great downtown diner in the heart of the city. Tried it on a whim and we were surprised at the great food, service and prices (and portions!). The menu was outstanding, our sandwiches were great (and huge) and the...service at the counter where we chose to sit was just as great. Will be sure to visit here again and we really recommend Mile's for anyone looking for great food at even better prices in downtown Boston.More

Great food, huge portions! If you are a not a big eater be ready to face a huge portion. Do not order more than one plate at once otherwise you will be stuck with a lot of food. The food is very traditional, old school...dinner food. Which I love! My favorite dish is the steak and tips, I love to get just one blueberry pancake. Most of the time I have to take it home, for me works like breakfast and lunch since I can never finish everything.More

Worth queuing to get in. Service speedy and friendly. Food choices to suit all appetites, but the pancakes were delicious. Refillable coffee as often as you want. Really worth making the effort to visit.

The food was excellent, the waiting staff friendly and service as fairly speedy. Unfortunately what let this place down was it’s disgustingly, filthy bathrooms. I judge the cleanliness of a kitchen on the cleanliness of a bathroom. If cooking staff are using this- I wouldn’t...visit here again. I’m just glad I’d eaten before I visited the washroom, as if I had seen it first- there’s no way we would have stopped. Luckily no I’ll effects- but please guys- sort it out- this really let you down.More

Local diner featured on Triple D. It’s a bit out of the way from touristy spots, so you know that it really is a local gem. Came here around noon and the line was long, but somehow we only waited for about 15 minutes. The...staff will put your name down on a list along with your party size. Indoor dining only. Credit cards are now accepted. There’s one single occupant restroom by the kitchen. It’s a kid-friendly spot. Portions are huge, so you may considering sharing. The food was delicious. The clam chowder was probably the best I’ve ever eaten in Boston, as there was some sort of thyme/rosemary hint in the soup that added some extra nuance. We got the corned beef hash with our eggs over easy, home fries, and rye toast (pre-buttered). We also got the fried chicken dinner which came with your choice of two sides - we got green beans and fries. The fries were golden and the chicken was super crispy. Service was nice but on the slow side. Overall, a good casual spot when you’re feeling hungry and are wanting some comfort diner food.More

There seems to be a lot of on-street parking in the neighborhood. We did not have a problem on a Saturday.
