The original Mars Diner has been around since 1951, and in 2009 they branched out with another location in the Beaches at 1987 Queen St E. They still serve great tasting comfort food “that is out of this world”. This isn’t the greatest photo – too much bright sun and no way to get around the reflection. Such is life in the hot city.

Participating in signs, signs

  10. Have you ever eaten there? To be honest, those kinds of signs usually turn me off from a place. Maybe I should be more open minded. πŸ™‚

    • I haven’t eaten at this location, but I have been to the one on College many times (though also many years ago!) and I was at the one at Eglinton and Yonge not too long ago and enjoyed the burger. The original is a nostalgic favourite.
