One of New Jersey's iconic diners. Open 24 hours and serving breakfast food around the clock. Doesn't matter if you go alone or with a big crew. Staff is very friendly and food is delicious.

Several positive reviews prompted me to opt for this diner over the King Wok equally nearby. The diner rightfully bragged that it was voted best in the county for a number of years. But I don't know what earned them that distinction. I literally think I fought off a cold from eating the not very tasty meat in the hamburger... More

Best food around for variety, taste, and cost! The menu has plenty to offer and everyone can find something they like. Diner is clean, employees personable, and although sometimes busy, service is great and worth the wait!

NJ diners never cease to amaze me. Amazing range of food including poultry, steak, seafood etc. Had a breakfast and a dinner here. Really good quality food and the place is very popular. Good service too. Recommended.
