I have been going here off and on for at least 4 years on a virtual weekly basis. We go here every Sunday after church. The place is a classic Diner. The food is always basically good.

Open 24 hours. Ali was our server and he did a great job. Had the French Toast, very good. Son had the Greek omelette, loved it. Daughter had cheese fries. The fries were a little under cooked but overall a great place. Would return.

They have their whole menu available all day. The Coney Island twisters are the best, along with all the Greek specialties.

I stopped by a year later and found the food to be just as good, service to be friendly, quick and helpful, and cleanliness very good. A very pleasant diner that would be among the best in New Jersey, home of the best diners.

I rate it as average because I am not a fan of diner food but this Diner is a better choice than most in the area.
