I visit this Diner often and have always had a great experience. The food selection is outstanding and the food itself is great. The staff is always friendly and the service is quick. You cant go wrong.

“Drop in for diner specialities served with a smile!”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

This is one of our local diners. Here in NJ we hold diners up to high standards. The food here is very good, fresh and appealing. The diner standards (breakfast for dinner, sandwiches, burgers) can be tweaked when you order them to arrive just "like you like them". Their wait-staff is always friendly and accommodating. The prices are a little higher than some diners but the food is worth that. This diner does not have any liquor/wine license (which i have been finding at other places recently) but I don't miss that - i'm going to a diner for quick homey well made dinner/lunch (and sometimes breakfast). This place will be crowded at dinner time especially on the weekends.

“Diner Food”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

This diner is not the best in NJ but it is good, the service is fast and friendly and the food is good. This is a nice diner, not the best in NJ but that is a very high standard. I have been here for breakfast, lunch and diner, but most often for lunch.
