3. Tom’s Restaurant - New York, NY
Another Tom’s Restaurant from New York City to make it on the list has earned its spot not only for its food, but also for it being the main hangout of Jerry, George, Kramer and Elaine on Seinfeld. Tom’s has been on the corner of Broadway and West 112th Street in Morningside Heights since the 1940s, and was also immortalized in Suzanne Vega’s hit “Tom’s Diner.” Over the years, Tom’s has fed everyone from movie stars and politicians to the swarm of Columbia University students. It’s no mystery why this diner has attracted so much popularity. The cheeseburgers, milk shakes and breakfast menu are all worth the wait at this classic diner.
