I went here last week after not having been in about 5 years and was not disappointed. The place has not changed much -- if at all. It's a very typical Jersey diner. It has quintessential old-style decor, a humongous menu, friendly staff, a large eating area, bakery treats to choose from, and great deals. I went with a large group -- 12 people -- and we were seated promptly with friendly, great service from people who didn't seem annoyed at all that we were a large group with mostly just lunch/sandwich orders.
The food is good, typical, large portioned, and includes some great deals. Many of us opted for the lunch specials, which include your soda, salad or soup, bread, meal, and dessert -- all for $9-12. Great deal. I had the gyro platter and it was very good. In general, everyone was pleased with their meals and enamored with the huge portions. I think every single one of us took some portion of the meal home. The only complaint was that the desserts (the free ones that came with the specials) were a bit underwhelming. People had ice cream, brownies, and cookies, and no one was thrilled with them. But seriously, it was a very good deal and we were all pleased. Wee'll go back.
