But after stumbling upon the Empire Diner this weekend I felt the need...to warn others.
There are A LOT of diners in NJ so no need to settle for this...hostess and waitresses both w/ zero personality, couldn't muster a smile even.
Lets see, tap water, skimpy over-cooked bacon and egg sandwich, like in one egg and 2 pieces of burnt bacon. Philly cheese steak with the canned mushrooms, PLENTY of cheese, hardly any meat whatsoever.

When I going over the bill , the waitress who obviously is watching me, yells over with an attitude across 2 tables "I took the cheese steak off your bill".

Horrible food, horrible service, horrible decor...we had to laugh at all when we left, it was so bizarre. Then we needed to go find something to eat.

Waited a while to get 3 waters for 5 people (?) and we eventually left before ordering. Didn't seem that excited to serve us.

Well beloved neighborhood diner with much-appreciated breakfast food. My wife swears by the tuna. Also nice selection of wraps. Finally, does have a liquor license so bar service is possible (although haven't seen anyone order anything)

I go there for breakfast fairly frequently. Good food and quick service. For lunch and dinner I'm never sure how fresh it is. Sometimes the food I get tastes like it's been in the fridge too long. Other times it is very good. Service is fair. Value is ok.
