I had stopped in for breakfast on my way to work on more then one occasion. I never had a problem. The service was friendly and fast. I decided to go for lunch today and somehow think I would have been better off going to Mcdonalds. I was seated as soon as I walked into the door and then sat... More

The Star Diner is a friendly and clean NJ diner where anyone can find something to tempt their appetite! Between the hours of 2 and 5 pm there is an early bird dinner special which seems to be very popular with seniors as each time we have visited, there are many couples enjoying an early dinner.

If you have a group of 5-6 friends who all want to sit around one table and talk, have a menu diverse enough to satisfy varied tastes, and deal with friendly wait persons, the Hillsborough Star Diner will meet those requirements. One thing about a diner, you don't have to worry about having your conversation annoying other patrons. Most diner... More

I always get a great meal here. Diners are the best to go for variety. Everyone can find what they want. The prices are good and the food is abundant. Most of the time you take food home because they give you so much. They also offer a 10% senior citizen discount which is great for seniors on a budget.... More

The food is great and the prices are reasonable.They also accommodate children and the portions are usually too much to eat.We always go home with a doggy bag.

There are better ones up and down Rt 206. A bad sign when a NJ diner has limited hours. All of the good ones are 24/7

The chicken orzo soup, grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, and baby carrots was very good. Everything was hot and came out a good time. The raspberry mouse was a very nice treat.

When I'm in Hillsborough this is a great spot to eat. This time was interesting. I eat here probably 4-6 times a year, far from a regular, but regular enough to get to know the menu. My kids are finicky about food when we eat at diners, not that they want quality, but they know what they like. One gets... More
