Great diner

We have come here a few times for breakfast. Also a good experience. The service is quick, the food is pretty standard diner food. Can't complain.

We eat at a lot of diners as we travel and work. This diner is a classic Jersey diner that is worth going out of your way. The food is good but the service is best! I highly recommend this diner.

The lasagna was very good, as were my chicken croquettes. The seven layer cake was really seven layers, fresh, & tasty. One complaint: a waiter sneezed multiple times into his hands & did not go to wash them - not immediately or at all as far as I saw. YUK. Thankfully, he was not our waiter. I have been here... More

I went here based on their web site which made everything seem just out of this world. I waited in traffic on rt 4, fought l;ocal traffic using up much of my lunch hour just to get to a "diner" which had a view of a strip mall across the street which had, an unemployment office, a check cashing place,...

Went here for breakfast for Father's Day, which is why I gave it an average rating. The diner was very crowded, as expected, but we were seated in short order. Food arrived in a timely fashion, but was not very hot. Given the day, the service was good, but the food did leave something to be desired. I have had... More

food was average at best, service was OK. This was a late night staple years ago. We had lunch and were really disappointed in food quality. We ordered basic burgers and sandwiches. Sandwiches were meager, burgers dried out small patties, cold fries. There's much better available. It was disappointing as we went out of our way to go here while... More

First off let me say the decor needs some improvement. Secondly the food doesn't really stand out to me it is your typical diner and typical diner food not much choice to really make it stand out from the rest.
