Description: Pompton Queen Diner is a family-owned and operated diner since 1987. Pompton Queen is not your typical diner. Our modern and clean restaurant, outdoor patio, and extensive menu landed us as one of the top diners to eat in New Jersey. Our service is spectacular and our food speaks for itself. Our Chicken Taverna was featured as one of the top 20 best dishes in New Jersey. Customers love our cannoli pancakes which are made from scratch. For those health conscious individuals we have an array of healthy options to choose from. We have daily lunch and dinner specials and have a full bar with plenty of great drinks. With five TVs around our bar area, Pompton Queen is also a great place to kick back and watch your favorite sports game. Stop in any day any time cause we're open 24 hours, and have yourself one of the best meals you can find in New Jersey. We look forward to having you.

“"Solid" diner...typical diner menu, good execution on the basics”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

I've been to this diner several times. Breakfast is what you'd expect from a good diner. I've had bad breakfasts before, so it's not like they don't exist. This breakfast is good, average for a good diner.

I've had a couple of salads here before as well, and they were "OK" at best. I wouldn't order salads here again.

I've had the stereotypical diner food as well -- turkey, chicken salad, etc. All "solid" -- what you would expect from a good diner. Not super, but solid, good. It's a popular spot so a lot of people seem to like it. Personally, I think it's average in some areas, slightly above average in others, and below in others.

“Good Breakfasts, big Portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Have been to this diner several times when in town over the past few years. Always busy, but not so busy a long wait is required. We have only been here for breakfast, but they serve lunch and dinner as well. I have tried a few different omelets and they are huge... sometimes a little too done. Overall a good place for breakfast.

“Good Diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

This is one of the few diners I feel safe eating at. It's not fancy but always seems clean and the management seems to be particular about quality. The servers are professional and usually pretty interesting.
