The food was not great, neither was the service. Our waitress kept taking forever to come to our table, even though the place was practically empty. The food was "eh" honestly the burger was okay, the fries were disgusting, tasted like they were old and about to go bad before they were cooked. They didn't have any of the desserts... More

What's to say? It's a NJ diner! Lots of happy patrons of all ages. Food is good, ditto for service, portions are generous but not overwhelming.

We have been going for years. Food is good as well as service and the place is always clean. My favorite dish is the Liver Athena and my husband loves the Turkey Club and disco fries.

Meadowlands is a typical Greek owned 24 hour diner on a major highway. Located in the Meadowlands area of Northern NJ close by Giants Stadium & Meadowlands Racetrack. Very good fresh food with an emphasis on chicken & seafood. Especially good is the Shrimp salad wrap which is huge.

wilted salad, ranch dressing that was -well I don't know what it was-The main meal was obviously yesterdays seafood and the squid was like shoe leather-way overcooked. The dessert was only JUST acceptable. The waitress' smell of cigarettes was more than I could take. The bill for the three of us was 70 and I did leave a tip (as... More

This diner is late night friendly and a good place to go after an event for a snack and coffee. All kinds of cakes and pies to destroy your waistline. Full diner fare available as well. Been there for a while could use a little remodeling

Typical Jersey diner, good food quick service, and servers with attitude. Stopped in for dinner with my wife and have to say everything was good, had the Greek salad and wife had open roast beef and they where both good. Grew up in Bergen County so familiar with this kind of place and it was like going home.

I love to visit New Jersey diners whenever I am passing through the state....This place certainly fits the bill...The food is very good although the sandwiches are not quite as meaty as other NJ diners...The soup and coffee were excellent. The cheesecake is out of this world...The servers were somewhat overwhelmed but very friendly...I am glad I made this stop... More
