I love diners, I am always excited to try a new place. From the outside the Chit Chat is a great looking diner, the modern twist on the retro styling is continued inside. The menu is great, the service was a miss. Incorrect drink, 1 straw for 2 drinks, missing tater tots, no salsa on the burger, no refill for... More

This is a great NJ diner, a bit more dressed up than some others. The food is terrific, the service the same, I've never had a bad meal here, only had bad service once and the issue was addressed by management with the server immediately. I've been here many, many times with family, my girlfriend, friends, it's a really good... More

Modern clean diner located in Hackettstown, NJ. This place has the usual large selections of typical diner food, but also has nice unique selections of entrees. Parking lot has a limited number of spaces. Food portions are very large. Would have given this place 5 stars, but the waitress did not offer my party free wine or beer, as it... More

I found it to be very clean which is always a plus and I thought the service was good. Let's keep things in perspective, we are talking about... More

I got two simple orders, hummus and a veggie wrap. Both of them were absolutely terrible and they were completely cover in oil. I would never both ordering from this restaurant again, waste of time and money.

This is a pretty popular diner in Hackensack area and is always filled with people and good food. Being there many times, food is good, but staff is very moody. Sometimes they treat you like a King and sometimes they are nasty. Besides everything else is good
