Solid diner comfort food. This was perfect for us as we arrived at the motel a few hundred feet away later in the evening. We were seated immediately greeted like we were old friends. The food was exactly what we expected it to be. Hot,...More

Came in late. No one came over to take order. Too busy talking with cook. Maybe it was just the time, but they just didn't seem to care that I was sitting there (starving, needed to eat). Adam's down the street is caring, large menu,...More

Comfortable, friendly staff and management, good food and plentiful portions. Budd Lake Diner is the quintessential Jersey diner we grew up with.

I wish we had this diner near us at home... the food selections are great and like most "Jersey" diners - the portions are large. Great atmosphere and reasonable prices. Best of all? Everone in your party can have whatever they want.

Local favorite. Often crowded. Especially good for breakfast. Open all day. Stick with breakfast. Our grandchildren love to go here. Waitstaff is attentive. Owners are on the premises.

We ordered our three favorite sandwiches, hot pastrami, Taylor ham, and cheesesteak. They were all good, but the Taylor ham didn't have the best flavor. I would order it again, but was a little disappointed. They gave large portions. The staff was friendly. We would...More
