About
Pompton Queen Diner is a family-owned and operated diner since 1987. Pompton Queen is not your typical diner. Our modern and clean restaurant, outdoor patio, and extensive menu landed us as one of the top diners to eat in New Jersey. Our service is spectacular and our food speaks for itself. Our Chicken Taverna was featured as one of the top 20 best dishes in New Jersey. Customers love our cannoli pancakes which are made from scratch. For those health conscious individuals we have an array of healthy options to choose from. We have daily lunch and dinner specials and have a full bar with plenty of great drinks. With five TVs around our bar area, Pompton Queen is also a great place to kick back
