I wish we had this diner near us at home... the food selections are great and like most "Jersey" diners - the portions are large. Great atmosphere and reasonable prices. Best of all? Everone in your party can have whatever they want.

Local favorite. Often crowded. Especially good for breakfast. Open all day. Stick with breakfast. Our grandchildren love to go here. Waitstaff is attentive. Owners are on the premises.

Years, ago, the Budd Lake Diner was the first and only 24 hour anything in town for miles. Budd Lake's relatively few shops in this sleepy hamlet, closed their shops at dusk. The Budd Lake Diner was a revelation back then and for many years,...More
