Family owned since 1989

Family Experience

Nazareth Diner has been a fixture within the community since 1989. Come in and enjoy our family friendly atmosphere!

In 2012 the diner underwent a complete make-over. With a modern yet inviting feel, we continue to serve up some of the best quality food in the Lehigh Valley!

All About us

The Nazareth Diner was opened in 1989 by John Theodopolis. John previously managed three other restaurants including the Key City Diner in Philipsburg, NJ. In 2012, after 23 years of ownership, John’s son, Pete Theo, bought the diner. They began a complete renovation blending the familiar qualities of the old diner with an updated and stylized façade.


This significant transformation inside & out, provides a welcoming family-oriented atmosphere. Not only is the new atmosphere enjoyable, the food and service remain exceptional in quality and value. The clean and modern interior is blended with a comfortable, inviting atmosphere for the whole family to enjoy.


In addition to the new look and extended menu, they now offer a new full bar. This bar features an assortment of mixed drinks, wines, beer and liquors. The 24-hour diner remains dedicated to its loyal patrons and clientele. They have also added multiple flat-screen TVs & expanded the menu of home-style cooking. This landmark of true Americana continues to be a community-gathering place for groups & families of all sizes, any time of the day or night.

Great diner food with EXCEPTIONAL service. I have tried many menu items & have never been disappointed. The staff is what brings me to visit here more often than other establishments. Super friendly, efficient, & it is a 'team' work atmosphere... it is clean & well lit.

This is a true diner. The food is terrific and the service couldn't be better. It's convenient, the owners and wait staff are friendly, and the portions are large. Couldn't ask for more!

My family and I love to come here. The prices are very reasonable and the food has been great every time we've been here. The place is family friendly and always immaculately clean.

Stopped in while visiting the Martin Guitar Factory.....really nice atmosphere and our waitress was very courteous. Our breakfast was excellent and really easy on the wallet, lol! We liked it so much we went back for dinner as well, and even thought they were much busier, everything from our server to our dinner was excellent!

They have a great salad bar. The menu is too big in my opinion. We go here once and awhile. Good breakfast foods and son loves their French toast and pancakes. Family owned and operated. Good place for a quick bite.
