Where do I begin. The owner was beyond ignorant and clearly doesn't care about customer service. My family and I stopped there to eat after spending the night in Wildwood. Basically when my son ordered a BLT he originally ordered it with fries but I realized there was an additional cost he just got the plain one . The waitress... More

The menu at this diner is vast - we went yesterday evening and ordered - 3 omelettes and a turkey dinner. Everything tasted fine, and we enjoyed our time with our visiting family very much.

This diner consistently offers good food no matter the time of day when you visit. Breakfast is always a good choice and the portions are reasonable. Service is solid as well. There is plenty of parking on either side of the building. Family friendly and will accommodate large groups.

It seems we go to the Rio Grande Diner every year for vacation because of all the menu choices and great food, and this year was no exception! I got stuffed shells from the mini meal menu on the back of the huge menu, which also comes with a soup or salad choice and pudding or jello. I got the... More

Place was crowded for lunch on a Monday. The food is above average for a diner. The prices are reasonable, and the portion sizes large.
