Some things never change...like the RE Diner. Food is ok although a bit pricey for a diner. Problem is that the people just aren't nice. Has has this reputation for years

It is an older diner that has been remodeled, but the smell still exists. The cleanliness is okay, but can be better.... More

The food is OK, if you are having a salad. Otherwise, the food is pretty bad at times. It's a good meeting place for a cup of coffee or tea, U wouldn't really come here for a fancy meal. Pros, this diner is open 24/7, and has a great location.

We eat at a lot of diners as we travel and work. This diner is a classic Jersey diner that is worth going out of your way. The food is good but the service is best! I highly recommend this diner.

The lasagna was very good, as were my chicken croquettes. The seven layer cake was really seven layers, fresh, & tasty. One complaint: a waiter sneezed multiple times into his hands & did not go to wash them - not immediately or at all as far as I saw. YUK. Thankfully, he was not our waiter. I have been here... More

We have come here a few times for breakfast. Also a good experience. The service is quick, the food is pretty standard diner food. Can't complain.
