Diners flock to the Dor-Stop again and again, knowing they’ll enjoy authentic, homemade food from a menu that includes traditional breakfast dishes, hot sandwiches, chicken tenders, cold sandwiches, and burgers. Treat yourself to a homemade meal at the Dor-Stop Restaurant
Pittsburgh locals know when it's time for breakfast, it's time for Dor-Stop. On Triple D, Guy swung by this family operation serving sweet pumpkin hotcakes and crunchy raspberry French toast. For egg lovers, try Jumbot, a mix of eggs, sausage, green bell peppers and "anything you would want."
The family-owned Dor-Stop has been making peoples' mornings brighter since it opened 29 years ago. It has even been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.
A little corner joint on Potomac Avenue, the Dor-Stop has served up breakfast and lunch to the South Hills for 25 years. It's a diner in the most classic sense; no less an authority than Guy Fieri and his "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" crew from the Food Network featured the place on his show a few years ago.
If you haven't read everywhere, Pittsburgh is the NEW. HOT. FOOD. TOWN. So it's likely important, if you're forced to move out of said hot food epicenter, that you have a way to quickly get back into the mix.
I'm devoted to the Dor-Stop for many reasons, but maybe above all because I think the true test of a diner is its potatoes. And this one serves them Lyonnaise-style, O'Brien-style, griddled into crisp potato pancakes or home fries, as well as mashed or French-fried (and served right on your sandwich, if you like, because this is Pittsburgh). That's true hospitality.
