Our Story

The Golden Ox Diner is a family owned restaurant established in 1991.

Our restaurant is known for the trains that run around the restaurant and display cases with collectible model trains, aircrafts, and memorabilia.

We offer American diner style meals as well as Greek dishes and desserts. We pride ourselves in our recipes:

Turkey, roast beef, ham, chicken, and hamburger are prepared, roasted, and marinated in our kitchen. Soups, gravy/sauces, dressings, etc. are always homemade. We locally source our produce and bread selections for the best quality and freshness.
