Stopped here on our way to the Poconos. The atmosphere is wonderful. 50's style decor. Old cars. The wait staff is spot on. The food comes out quick, hot and delicious. We had breakfast, they give you a bonus little muffin! On the way out I almost bought a cookie.[too hot out, would have melted] It was as big as a personal pan pizza! I have to go back and get one!! Go and enjoy a meal.

Yes it has character, and Guy Fieri's car parked out in front. Lots of glass and chrome-quite the retro diner showpiece. However, I found my meal to be less than great, and would not order the "huge" Panini again. It was considerably less than huge, enough so to make me wonder if they only put half of it on the plate. Accompanied by overly greasy fries, it was not worth the $12.99 price by a long shot. We did enjoy the desserts, but 2 adult sandwiches, 2 kids meals and 2 desserts came to over $55. Again, not a value for the money.

Horrible!! Skip this DIVE and head 4 miles up Rt. 15 to the Sparta Classic Diner for a real meal at a real diner. This place has lost its mind. The food network insignia covering every available square inch of the place should be telling enough. Food sucks. Service sucks. Find a new hobby.

Yummy - Very consistent food - Check them out on the Food TV re-runs of Diners-Drive ins and Dives.

Coffee excellent (Why isn't the sugar substitutes in the table? Are people stealing?

i was referred by a friend who lived in the area and said this was the best diner in the county. i needed to meet someone and this was the halfway point. i arived at 230 to discover the lunch specials were no longer available, i was given the the dinner specials. my wife had a grilled chicken salad, it comes in a big bowl but it is a shallow bowl, with a small portion of chicken and the price was 11.99.she was still hungry when we left. i ordered a pizzaburger deluxe for 11.99, the food here is overpriced and very average. my burger was overcooked. a large soda is 2.99, i have never paid 2;99 in any diner for a soda, even if it comes with free refills, all diners provide free refills. prices for other food were all at least 20% higher that other diners. this is a one and done type place.
