 Queen City Family Restaurant of Reading, PA was built by Mr Walter Moore in the mid 1950’s. He named it Moore’s. His diner was known for its strawberry pie. In fact the original weather vain is still on top of Queen city today.

In the early 80’s Philip Row took over what they then called Dempsies.

In 1990 the current owner Elsayed Elmarzouky purchased what he then called Queen City. He named the diner Queen city because he used to work at a diner called Queen City in New York where he met his wife.
