Alexis Diner

IMAG0201Alexis Diner is located in East Greenbush near Hudson Valley Community College on Route 4.

We wandered into Alexis Diner on a busy Saturday morning.  We were greeted and seated immediately.  I ordered a meat skillet, it came with three eggs on a bed of hashbrowns, bacon, sausage, ham, and cheese.  The scrambled eggs were cooked well, and they put some extra cheese on top, which was a nice touch.  The hashbrowns in the skillet lacked any seasoning, and the meats were completely out of proportion (tons of ham, barely any bacon, moderate amount of sausage).  It was a lot of food, but the dish as whole wasn't nearly as good as I had hoped it would be.

Josie ordered the french toast (short stack) with a side of bacon.  The french toast batter didn't soak completely through, so there was a dry, flavorless section in the middle.  The section of french toast that was battered and cooked had a good flavor, and they used a good bread.  Her bacon was cooked to order.

Service was great, even though it was busy.  I have a work office near this diner, so I have been there quite a few times in the past, the waitress often remembers me, and has my drink order before I even sit down.  I am normally more impressed with the quality of food than I was for this particular time.  Next time I am there I will be sure to write a follow up, hopefully this trip was not the norm.
