A month ago my wife and I took friends/visitors from out-of-state to Sandy Springs Diner, because previously we had been wowed with the enormous food selection and the quality/flavor of the food. The four of us ordered; three of us ordered pastrami sandwiches, and the fourth, one of our guests, ordered a corned beef sandwich. Flavor was great, portions were generous, and we all were satisfied. Our guests insisted upon paying.
Within an hour-and-a-half to two hours, the corned beef made itself known in a powerful and most unpleasant way to the guest who had eaten it, ruining the rest of the afternoon and beyond. My wife and I still feel bad that our recommendation for a restaurant had caused our good friend to get sick. There is little doubt about cause and effect, as the afflicted guest is a doctor who is familiar with such ailments. He was fortunate to not have needed hospitalization.
We all realize that such things happen, but we also know that they are preventable. This shouldn't have happened!
Terrible service. All the girls looked like they had an attitude problem. Had to ask for everything more than 2x. Waited almost 5 min to be seated and had to wait to pay, and the restaurant was not busy at the time. So, why the long wait? However, food was very good. I always leave good tips no matter what the circumstances were. But, this time I could not. I just couldn't. I even prayed about it for a moment. I still couldn't leave a decent tip. I left a tip but it was minimal.

My co-workers and I go to this place quite often. The menu is incredible - so much to choose from & consistently good. The serving are great and you get your money's worth here.
The staff is friendly and they try to be as quick as possible. However, you have to keep in mind that this in not the kind of place that just warms up frozen foods or mass produces like fast food. Its cooked fresh w/ great ingredients. I ordered the stuff tomato w/ chicken salad and was surprised at the presentation because it came our fairly quick. The Gyros are great, and don't be afraid to order the Disco Fries (french fries w/ cheese & gravy). I love those even though I sure they have a ridiculous amount of calories.
