Busy place with counter seating and limited booths but worth the wait if there is a line. Sit at the counter and watch the line cook filling orders. Great to watch the ballet behind the counter. We had breakfast but they serve lunch and dinner...More

My favorite thing to do on a Sat or Sun morning is sit at the counter and watch the show. This is a simpler is better type of joint - On the griddle, not fancy, a little greasy as a greasy-spoon diner should be. Most...More

Friendly and luminous inside; not much room. Great for a a traditional breakfast or lunch. Food is solid and fresh. Much of it is prepared under your eyes. Lots of guests come for takeout lunch sandwiches. Easily spend less than $15.00

An original! Wonderful old train car design and decor that is still from the 50's! Exactly what you would expect from the folklore of the Jersey Diner tradition. This one leads the way!

They have great breakfast and pancakes. For lunch or dinner I recommend the soups and a Hilltop burger- not the regular one- must be the hilltop. Great mashed potatoes too- sub the fries for mashed!

Need a quick, basic meal on the run? This is the place. Good, standard food served fast and without the hassle of a smile. You pay extra for that. Either way, i'd go back here for sure.

Visited the hometown and had breakfast here. Never went in there while I lived in Summit, which is too bad. It's just a small diner by the train station but they did a good breakfast, what more can you ask for?! Friendly people but then...More

Huge portions of food. Cook right and delivered quickly. Family owned and run. Almost always a line so hard to get in but well worth the wait!
