BROOKLYN - The iconic Del Rio Diner in Bensonhurst will soon be serving its final meal after decades as a neighborhood institution.

The diner is a throwback to an earlier time with classic booth and tables.  It even has a jukebox to play music. 

The current owner has to shut down due to outstanding operating costs.  

Residents have been lining up to get one more meal in before it shuts down for good next Sunday.
