New Jersey is the land of great diners. Plaza, however, isn't one of them. The premises are a bit out-of-date/downscale. The food is unimaginative...the basics done basically. The french fries are those awful food service frozen jobs that don't actually taste like they are made from potatoes. Not worth a detour.

Conveniently located, real turkey in the club sandwich, good burger, breakfast, bad frozen fries, professional, friendly service, pretty good coffee. Best part cheap ok wine and open most of the time. Recommend it if its diner food you want and you're in the neighborhood, its late and you're hungry.

We got in for breakfast; eggs with potatoes and bacon. For the kids they made "dollar" pancakes (never heard of before, these are smaller pancakes). Their food is a far cry from an upscale manhattan brunch, but this is not why you go here. We had a good time, the waitress was kind, the eggs were ok, the coffee was... More

A diner is a diner when it comes to décor - but this one is clean and bright. Favorite things: perfectly done omelets; outstanding and huge chef's salad; excellent Philly cheese steak wrap; excellent gyro (ask for it wrapped); tasty shrimp salad; good coffee; and accommodating service. The new ownership is renovating, which is good, because the ladies' restroom needs... More

This is a good place for NYC folk to meet their friends from NJ. It's open long hours (24 I think) and is just off the bridge so easy to reach quickly from NY (you can walk over bridge -- or take a bus -- if you don't have a car). It has adequate diner food and serves a full... More

A typical diner. Food is comfortable if bland. Most things actually all taste the same but the fries were hot and the Reuben was tasty. Great place for late night noshing.

The jury is still out as to whether new ownership will make this place work...or whether they just bought it for the liquor license.

Standard diner menu, that is just about anything you can think of. Food is OK, location is good, and pricing competitive.

I regret stepping foot into this diner for breakfast yesterday. After waiting 45 minutes for a table, I waited another 30 minutes to get a menu. When I ordered scrambled eggs, they somehow appeared on my table not even a minute later. It was obvious the eggs were either taken off of someone else's plate or were left out in... More
