First visit to this diner which has been around for a very long time. Waiter was friendly and engaging but had too many tables to give us enough attention. The seafood bisque was excellent, very well seasoned and full of seafood, exceptional quality for any restaurant but amazing for a diner. Wraps were very good: chicken part was well prepared...

Open 24 hours. Ali was our server and he did a great job. Had the French Toast, very good. Son had the Greek omelette, loved it. Daughter had cheese fries. The fries were a little under cooked but overall a great place. Would return.

They have their whole menu available all day. The Coney Island twisters are the best, along with all the Greek specialties.

I stopped by a year later and found the food to be just as good, service to be friendly, quick and helpful, and cleanliness very good. A very pleasant diner that would be among the best in New Jersey, home of the best diners.
