I've been coming here for years. The staff greets me like family. Eva, the owner makes THE BEST greek salad anywhere, and I've tried at least 25 different restaurants. Julio (the short order cook at the griddle) has perfected pancakes. They are the best in town. Let me change that... they are the best in the state. Their BLTs are... More

The interior was old but that is how you know the food will be good. Old school breakfast was filling and delicious. Great for the price.

I went to the Bendix Diner in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ with a friend and enjoyed a nice brunch. The atmosphere and servers were nice and friendly. The parking is tough sometimes because large trucks are in the parking lot. The food is a little pricey, but delicious. I had a great tasting BLT on toast. My friend had a BLT... More

Classic diner but a travesty that the owner has let it detetiorate. Dirty windows, floors, mirrors and stainless. Ripped chairs, nasty booths, wobbly tables. Ok food, slow to come ftom the grill. For diner aficionados, this would be a sad experience.

I chose this while in town for work to experience the local version of an "authentic" diner, and was very disappointed. It's a cool looking building outside, for sure, but felt dirty and old inside. Nothing was quite as clean as it should have been -- the booths were dirty, with ripped seats, crumbs scattered about everywhere, and grease-covered windows,... More

Historic NJ diner that's been immortalized in TV commercials for years but i way past it's prime. Needs majjor overhaul as it's become tacky. OK for bacon & eggs but nohing fancy.

Stopped in yesterday and had a nice lunch. Reuben sandwich was good as was the triple decker chicken salad sandwich. Good fresh coffee and service was what you get at a diner.

I had the blueberry pancakes which were cheap and delicious and husband went for the corned beef hash, breakfast potatoes and eggs - wonderful! Typical American diner style restaurant.
