THIS place seems to condone the use of profanity by it's employees toward customers.
Over the weekend I stopped in after 2:00pm with a few friends. Upon reporting to the management, a one Adam Newton, of unprovoked and unwarranted verbal abuse by his slightly overweight, red haired female waitress, which included the use of profanity, Adam rudely began to immediately question validity of the story, even though the event was witnessed by all inside. It appears management will stand up for BAD EMPLOYEE behavior. Eat at your own risk.

My girl and I went for breakfast Saturday late morning. We placed our order with one waitress while 2 waiters alternated in taking care of us. I ordered the mexican scramble (chorizo and eggs with potatoes) my girl got an omelette. Our food took 30 mins at the least to get to us and its because they forgot to put in our order. I could see the cook making the meals and everyone getting served EXCEPT us. When I told one of our waiters he started to pipe up with an excuse but never finished and took off. He never returned to tell us the status of our order, instead the other waiter came up to us concerned and asked if everything was ok. We told him we hadnt gotten our food in over 30 mins he rushed to the cook and i could see the cook barely starting to whip up our order. It was done in no time but by that time I was so turned off on this place. I thought this place was going to be really good since they have been around for a while and had a citysearch sticker for Best Breakfast. Seriously people?? Im not super picky but they had basic items on their menu and they weren't that great for what u pay. I am officially labeling this place a tourist trap and warning you all to stay away and try something better like Joey's in weho or Hugo's. If you want simple breakfast items like they serve at Dukes ONLY done the right way for less you can get it at Norm's. That's saying a lot casuse I hate Norm's but I would have rather gone there at that point.
Oh and then to top it off, they gave us the wrong check! The waitress, yup same one that forgot to put in our order, comes over to tell us we are ""so lucky"" that the other couple got the wrong check cause we saved 3 dollars on sub par food. Thanks lady I feel bad for the other couple.

I ate there for the first time because of all the hype about it. I really liked the eggs and the potatoes, but the coffee wasn't that great and the bacon was dry. I would probably go back living in the city but i'll bring my own bacon and coffee next time. Note: get center cut Oscar Meyer Bacon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

Duke's is a good spot in the middle of the Sunset scene for reliable and tasty diner food. There is no ambiance. They have old (grimy looking) music posters on the walls. The joint could use a face lift but with diner food this tasty, they can get away with it. The patty melt is delicious and the crinkle cut fries don't disapponint. I haven't tried the eggs yet but heard they are great at Duke's. Co-workers of mine saw Paris Hilton here not too long ago.

Duke's is likely an institution on the strip. Far from glitzy, it serves up tasty food on very average dinnerware and tables.
If you are in the mood for a good, solid, uncomplicated meal, give Duke's a try. I've had lunch there a couple of times with big groups and we always order breakfast foods. I am partial to the omelettes.

Am a regular lunch patron with the work crowd here, so much that they know our special orders. The staff smiles when we come in, and gets to us right away...a treatment not reserved only for the regulars either, by the way. The food is great ... for a diner of course. My faves are the pancake special and the basic grilled cheese with fries.

There is no better diner experience this side of Witchita. With the posters of yester-year rockers to the cranky wait staff, this is the place to get eggs, hashbrowns and a piece of 90069. Nestled on the busy-busy of Sunset strip, you're bound to see an ex-celeb stoll in for a stack of pancakes. A great place with solid food and open when you need them

History aside, it's a decent little greasy spoon. The selection is American, food is prepared well and quickly. Service is a bit gruff, but you get the feeling that's what they're going for. The downside for me however is the atrocious coffee. Skipping that, a decent meal can be had quickly without breaking the bank.

I have no idea what in the hell they do to a cheese omelet but it is really tasty, I know, it's just a cheese omelet. Although, I wouldn't suggest any omelets with to many veggies, pretty watery but that can happen anywhere. The hash brown/home fries are hit or miss depending on how you like them and from what area off the grill you get them. The brisket sandwhich is good, not like Grandma's brisket but hey, it's just a diner but a real good one.
