Good food , fast service , friendly staff. We stopped here for breakfast and we were quickly greeted and shown to a table. The waitress was right there and brought our drinks right to us. Our food order was taken and in no time our food came out just right. Would recommend you stop here for our breakfast while visiting... More

I have never had a bad meal at the Rio Grande Diner. Every time I visit the area, I make a stop here for breakfast, brunch, lunch, etc. The staff is so friendly and courteous, and the food is always delicious! Very affordable, clean, and overall wonderful. If you are looking for a good place to grab a meal, look... More

So, this is my second time at this place and it has gone downhill. The server admitted to us that this was her first time on her own, and she did not know the menu, and hardly spoke English by her accent. We had to help her with what to get with our order. My wifes order was the wrong... More

Third year in a row that my family and I have went to Rio Grande Diner for breakfast after checking out of our hotel in Wildwood, NJ. When arriving at the diner around 12p.m on a Sunday it looked like it was very packed from the outside but we had decided to put our name in and wait a little... More

I use to really like this place but not anymore. The tables and floor are dirty, the silverware covered in food. Stuff floating in drinks and the food is so greasy, i will not go back!

My wife and I had a nice Sunday breakfast with her cousin at the Rio Grande Diner. From the moment we walked in, the staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Our orders were promptly taken and served shortly after our beverages were brought out. I had a spinach omelet with hash browns and a side of scrapple. A basket... More

We didn’t want fast food but didn’t want anything upscale. We had been out on the water for the morning. Stopped at this diner for lunch. It was a great choice. The food was good and reasonably priced. I had a turkey club and fries, kids had blueberry pancakes, and someone had a Rubin. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was... More

Good location for any traveler around Cape May. Right near Exit 4 in Rio Grande. Very good, fast service. Offers just about any kind of food. Good soups, eggs, sandwiches. Kind of a cozy feel to the place and noise level was fine. Good quality food for a good price. Sure beats the expensive places at the beach.
