“Your local friendly 50s diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

I stopped in here a few times for lunch. The staff is always very friendly. The menu seems a little limited for a Jersey diner. The food is good. I just stick with the cheeseburger. It's a doo wop 50s theme diner. It's kind of hard to find on Route 10. There isn't much signage along the road. Seems out of place attached to the econo lodge. I'll be back next time I'm in the area though, it seems worth trying more than the cheeseburger.

“Cute place and fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We stayed at the attached Econolodge for one night and ordered takeout from the diner. Husband wasn't feeling well so I asked if they could make his chicken soup extra hot. Not only did they heat it up, they also gave him a bowl size order instead of a cup as well as extra hot water and teabags. To top it off, the server volunteered to help me carry everything back to the room. The soup was very good, my panini sandwich was excellent, plus lots of very good fries on the side. The place looked bright and fun, and I was sorry we didn't get the chance to eat there.
