I had breakfast here today and had the creamed chip beef on home fries and it was excellent and a very large portion. Service is excellent and food arrived quickly. Prices are reasonable. This diner is approximately 15 minute ride from Six Flags Great Adventure. This diner appears to be a local favorite. Their theme is Elvis and the fifties.

Great place for the entire family. The decor brought us back to the 60's. The breakfast specials were unique and delicious. Pumpkin walnut pancakes to die for. Poached eggs were perfect. Server was friendly. Prices are fantastic. Can't wait to go back for lunch.

We stopped to eat after a full day at Six Flags and found that everything was great. Although we were told that the kitchen was closing shortly, they still took our order and our family had hot, tasty dinners served quickly and cheerfully. The only complaint we had is that there was not enough time to see all of the... More

Fantastic atmosphere, love the interior of the diner - it feels like you have been transported to America! The attention to detail is fantastic - the 60s songs, the old film posters and you can even buy memorabilia (e.g, magnets). The food was delicious, I recommend the burgers. You get A LOT for your money and they are very tasty.... More

Went to JBs for breakfast with our 2 kids. When we first walked in, our son took a look at the juke box which is right in front of you as you enter and got yelled at by the owner. There is a sign on the jukebox that says "Please don't touch." The rude welcoming dampened my husband's mood and... More

JB's is a feast for the eye's and your stomach. It does not matter breakfast, lunch or dinner, it's very good NJ Diner fair, in a unique setting. Service is always prompt and courteous for a more then fair price with heaping portions. But beware, they only take green backs nothing else, so do not go in and expect them... More

We eat breakfast here frequently. The 50's & 60's music surrounds the entrance. A cash only place that makes good solid diner food well. Located on route 537 between Freehold and Millstone it is easy to get to. Often times we see the charter bus drivers from the tri-state area having lunch there after they drop off passengers at Great... More
