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

While visiting Hackensack, we had one of our local friend suggested place to go eat. This happy group of four adults headed for the Chit Chat Diner, at 515 Essex St. There was a lot of recent renovations. The place was charming and has a theme or checkered back and white. There was the attention to detail that comes from... More

I've eaten at the Chit Chat Diner a number of times and have always had a great experience. For breakfast or brunch I've ordered poached eggs, and they always come out just right. The menu is extensive. The salads and sandwiches or wraps are always fresh and tasty. Staff is friendly and helpful.
