The IDEAL DINER was built in 1949 and has been a landmark in the Nordeast neighborhood ever since. The old neon sign shines bright onto Central Ave as it welcomes you and starts your journey through the area. It’s located in a neighborhood that, at one time, consisted of mainly industry and working class people. Today, it serves a diverse community of all sorts of people. We’d love to have you stop on in and enjoy an IDEAL meal!
