the first visit to this diner was wonderful. We had a yummy lunch, were seated promptly and the waitress was attentive and friendly. A few days later we returned for breakfast and though seated promptly we waited forever for server to take our order. My husband had to stand up and wave to get our coffee and again to get... More

Stopped here for dinner on our way to visit family. Great meal. Great service. My Caesar salad was excellent and my husband's burger was huge. Everyone liked their meal. Sadly we were too full to try dessert. Can't wait to go back.

The food came quickly and the waiter was attentive throughout. The price was reasonable. Woudl definitely stop in again the next time we... More

We've eaten here before with decent results- nothing to write home about but 'good enough' when it's a little late and you're hungry. Stopped in tonight and really wish we hadn't. Ordered a french dip and a hot dog, with some wings - basic fare. Ordered at around 9:45. Took 45 minutes to get food. Really surprised as it was... More

This diner consistently serves a good meal and works hard to be sure you get what you want. If I am looking for a quick bite that I am sure will be good I run in. Management does a great job overseeing staff and quality.

Only a handful of diners in the New York tri-state are bad. This one is very good. My friend and I ordered a burger/fries and turkey club (aka Triple Decker) plus drinks. Saturday night, 8 PM and I was surprised it wasn't busy. Good food, reasonable prices. Delicious desserts. Very friendly staff. It's not a huge NJ diner with a... More

Menu was extensive and it was great that all us found something great to order. Kids had pancakes and waffles and they loved them. I had chicken souvlaki with... More
