So disappointed... thought we'd be safe at stopping by a diner for a decent meal, as opposed to a typical chain restaurant. We ordered from the "dinner specials" page and never anticipated any issues. I received a side salad and two vegetable sides included with my meal, and I also ordered a crock of french onion soup at a discounted price since I was purchasing a meal.
My eggplant parm was heavily breaded and deep fried... it seemed to have taken on the flavor of old/burnt oil and tasted pretty bad. I never got past a few bites. The steak fries that were ordered as a side also took on that awful taste.
I attempted to tell the waitress about the problem with the food and offered to pay for what I had eaten. She carried the plate off in a huff and called out the cook's name before even reaching the kitchen door. When she returned, she was extremely rude and told me that the oil had been changed the night before and that it was freshly breaded eggplant. In hindsight, I should have asked if her or the cook had taken a taste to see for themselves. She said the bill would be adjusted.
She fussed and complained to the other workers, greatly embarrassing me in front of other customers. When we were handed the bill, the onion soup, salad and both sides were charged to me at full price... bringing the bill to far more than I would have paid if I had said nothing and just left the bad food sit there.
I have never experienced anything like this before... I walked out of that diner feeling very sad that I was treated so poorly... very poor customer service. I will never step foot in there again, and I will certainly be sharing my experience. And perhaps the waitress should learn some manners and proper etiquette if she's planning on staying in the food service business.

Zoto's is a diner, not the 4 Seasons. People who go here expecting something fancy are silly. The food is ok. The coffee is slightly less than ok but not bad. The wait staff are hard working every day people. Yes, there are crumbs, and the food is not gourmet, but it is a diner. A diner. A diner.

The Doylestown region of Bucks County, Pennsylvania has established itself, along with the New Hope area as an exquisite and diverse culinary hotbed for creative gastronomical temptations. Strong cultural districts, Doylestown and New Hope attract tourists from other areas of the state, New Jersey, New York, Washington DC, Virginia and other states longing for the small town feel with a strong cultural twist of history and the arts.

Wonder outside of this area and you have Line Lexington, Pennsylvania, a busier Philadelphia suburb near Hatfield with its share of interesting restaurants and dives. A standout, for all the wrong reasons is the Zoto??s Diner (also referred to as Zoto??s Family Restaurant and Diner) on Bethlehem Pike. Of course it??s a ??shopping center?? dive but with the interesting branding we thought a visit was in order. Hoping to uncover the next big thing in Bucks County we only left suffering from stomach pains, buyer??s remorse and the feeling that 95 minutes of our lives were stolen without redemption.

Zoto??s Diner is a dive that resembles the geriatric unit of your regional ??state owned?? sanatorium and the smell, or shall I say ??odor?? is reminiscent of mushroom soup, adult diapers, cheap spaghetti and dog food.

Walking into this dive you??ll experience an odd combination of a pretentious, cheaply perfumed, makeup caked street walker that will show you to your booth. If you??re one of the fortunate few to get a table without butter smeared all over the top and chicken soup drizzled on the 1970??s style cushion seat, then count your blessings because that is most likely the best thing that could happen to you at this glorified greasy spoon. Think, North Philly, meets Compton section of Los Angeles but only with a Caucasian waitress sporting a grime caked ponytail, yellow armpit stained shirt and probably the most racist individuals you??ll ever meet.

I was eating there with a fellow writer from Korea and the way they treated him was so unbelievably despicable it made me sick. Sure he had an accent but he was making every effort to be polite and kind and to assimilate. His goal was to gather information for a travel journal he was righting to be published in the spring. Instead of unique material that he could add to his book he was slammed with an ignorant, obese, obscenely despicable receptionist, waitress and cashier. I really felt bad for him. I travel constantly as this is part of the writing biz and I have never witnessed anything even remotely close to this but we didn??t even get to the food yet.

After about 20 minutes of sitting with no service I asked the waitress, assigned to our section, if I could have a menu. She looked at me, looked at my colleague and with a huff and puff returned with two of the grimiest and stained circa 1945 menus I??ve ever seen. I felt as though touching these smelly antiques would cause them to disintegrate in my hands or by that I would get some type of skin disease from touching the surface. Hmm, boiled chicken, chicken soup, mashed potatoes, so gross. Well, we??ve been sitting here, may as well just order, eat and get the heck out. We both ordered the chicken and potato platter. This automaton waitress wouldn??t so much as acknowledge my friend so I ordered for him.

The food, to be perfectly objective, open minded and as positive as humanely possible was absolutely the most disgusting culinary disaster I??ve experienced in 39 years of memory. The chicken was stringy and cold, the potatoes had hard, crackly pieces throughout and it was all covered with this puss colored gravy which, by using my imagination, tasted identical to what it looked like.

Listen, there are so many places to eat in the area, steer clear of Zoto??s Diner, it is, hands down, a grease infested, mind blowing experience that will damage your taste buds and make your heart ache. I say it will make your heart ache because the staff was so unified under this umbrella of obvious hat and disdain for someone that was different and now, when he goes back to his country to write about our area, the only thing that will stick in his mind is the pure hate, unbridled racism and stomach turning, putrid gastronomical hodgepodge served at Zoto??s Diner, the hell on earth for diners in the Bucks/Mont area.

Zoto's diner in Line Lexington, PA has been around forever, it's a local greasy spoon that caters to budgeting senior citizens and serves cheap food and even cheaper quality with service lacking in too many areas to count.
We had family visiting us for the weekend and decided to take the family out for breakfast. We decided to try Zoto's Diner for a quick bite ... big mistake!
Here is a short breakdown of our regrettable time in this time capsule of a dive. For starters we were seated to a table with crumbs littering the table and my sister in law sat down on a chair with butter speared on it which stained her khakis.
Next we were 'greeted' by a women a heavy set women with frizzy hair and an attitude that screamed "I hate myself and I want to make your life miserable because I hate what I see in the mirror" (did you get all that lol).
About 15 minutes after ordering coffee, we had empty mugs thrown at us and as she was filling them up I brought to her attention that there was lipstick on three of the mugs.
With eyes bulging with rage gathered the filthy mugs (while spilling coffee on my wife in the process) and then returned 10 minutes later with a tray of coffee cups already filled. We thanked her, placed our meal order and continued our family conversation.
Five minutes later, my father had gotten to the bottom of his coffee cup only to find, i kid you not, a 'carrot', yes a CARROT stuck to the bottom of the inside of his mug.....gross!
We eventually received our order and of course the food was cold, with dry shriveled toast, black home-fries and bacon that looked and tasted as if they pulled it out of the garbage bin and tossed it on our plates. On our way out as we were paying the cashier asked us "how was your meal" we all just looked at her like deer caught in the headlights.
On a scale of 1 to 10, ten being the best and one being the worst, Zoto's Diner is a -5

We love Zoto's! We have been going there for many years and always got good food and good service - they never disappoint. Their prices are affordable. This is the way a diner should be.

A landmark eating establishment that, unfortunately, is no longer what it used to be. After waiting a little less than an hour for food, poor waitstaff attitude, $2.00 surcharge for chocolate chips in 2 pancakes, a policy of $2.00 minimum per person per table, ringing up our bill incorrectly, and a manager that showed no concern for our complaints, I couldn't leave quick enough. Not recommended.

For the past 2 years, we have had a Christmas party in the private room at Zoto's with about 20-30 people and both years it has been excellent. The food was great and the service was exceptional!

Food is good. The place is kept clean. They make wonderful soups and desserts. Service was a little slow, but friendly. Priced right. Dessert was fresh and tasted homemade.

Zotos offers a wonderful diner experience for a very fair price. My family has celebrated many birthdays and other occasions here. The food is always delicious and of excellent quality. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful. The menu offers a wide variety of selections. Breakfasts on the weekends is usually a very busy time for Zotos, so you will probably have to wait to be seated. Believe me, it is well worth the wait!

PROS: Excellent food, friendly wait staff, good prices
CONS: May have a wait to be seated for breakfast on weekends
