What can I say, and I'm not one to praise. The food is consistently excellent, portions plentiful and priced for excellent value. The people that work here are friendly and professional. Always greeting with a smile and never forgetting to say thank you. We now drive here regularly from Clifton. Given the time, we chose the PQ Diner.

Thank Scott N
Management response:

We're proud to have earned your praise, Scott! It means a lot to us that you like both our staff and our portions. We're excited to see you again soon. Until next time, Sam M. More

Visited 11/4/16 for breakfast Great breakfast, friendly service... Typical NJ diner... maybe a bit nicer... with a full bar, so that means Bloody Mary's for breakfast!! Couple eggs... over medium with ham for me and bacon for the Mrs. Done to perfection. (Which isn't always the case) Eggs done the way you want them seem to be avoiding us... either... More

Thanks for coming by, Conrad! I can understand what you mean by the butter. So glad we got your eggs right, though, because that is so important. I hope we see you again soon. Until next time, Sam M. More

All restauranteurs should take a lesson from these folks. Cannot really say I have ever seen such a well run establishment. The food, service, cleanliness are all AAA+++.

New Jersey is the home of diners but some are good and others are not. The Pompton Queen is one the best if not the best I can recall. A friend suggested we meet there because of the location although she said it got great reviews. When I arrived on a Saturday morning the place was packed with many people... More

We've been coming to Pompton Queen Diner for 9 years and have never been disappointed. The menu is pretty big from pancakes to burgers, salads, to veal parmigiana and everything in between that your heart desires. The food tastes delicious every time and the portions are more than generous! We live about 25 minutes away, so it's not our local... More

Out of all the diners in north jersey, this diner hands down is my favorite. The only setback? It's always crowded! Definitely worth the short wait. Everything I have ever eaten here has been great. Staff is very pleasant and welcoming.

My challenge writing this review is that if you haven't heard about this diner you don't go out much. The Pompton Queen Diner is by far one of the best, The only problem is that if you wan't to go there on some evenings..Forget about it! 20 min. wait is normal.The reason ,,the food and service is great!

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.
