Typical New Jersey Diner

This was exactly what you would expect for a Jersey diner, which to us, is great. We stopped in for a late night dinner, which mostly consisted of breakfast foods. Our large family of 7 were all very happy with the food but our waiter really stood out as well! He told my 10 year old daughter that... read more

We have been to this diner multiple times and the service is great and the staff is friendly. We have never really had too long of a wait, but even if the wait was long it would be worth it.

Could use a place like this in Michigan. Some dinners are full at 2 in the after noon due to location, others for the food. This one has both. A full diner menu with nice daily specials and many breakfast items served all day. My daughter's turkey club used real turkey. The soups, both chicken and bean were excellent. My... More

This is a very busy place. We were greated and seated right away. The menu offers a great variety. They also offer mini meals as well. The server was friendly. The meal was servered fast there was plenty to eat even as a mini meal. The meal was served hot and very tasty. The prices are comparable for the area.... More

We ate here on a Saturday night. My friend had an omelet. They serve breakfast all day. I had a mini meal which included soup or salad, homemade bread, and dessert!. Everything was wonderful! If you have never been to a New Jersey diner, you are missing out on a great homemade meal. The Rio Grande Diner proudly lives up... More

Even though this diner probably has one of the biggest menus in the county, the back page is the best deal, They call them Mini meals, but they are far from the mini except in price. A selection of about 15 entries with soup or salad, entree and desert

A little pricey, not a super huge menu but every meal well prepared and very good. Outstanding soups including some of the best Clam Chowder. Wait staff is top notch and ambiance I find cozy. I usually go there twice in the week we are down that way

We often eat at this diner - great breakfast and lunch, never been there for dinner. Waitresses are fast and efficient and food is served very quickly.

I have had a summer home here for many years and never have eaten here. There always seems to be a good crowd in there so we tried it and it was great. I had the chipped beef that was awesome (I make my own and am very picky and this was good!) My son had a burger and his... More
