Ate at Rio Grande Diner at recommendation of friend in Cape May. Huge portions of food, wonderful taste and a great price. If you walk away hungry it's your own fault!

Yup, this place needs to be closed. My fiancé actually looked down and saw a dead roach in the booth! He took a picture and we left our food behind running.

Best place for breakfast for the money, the specials are great value, my faverit is the rio combo. You always get more then enough food to fill you up.Lunch and dinner are also a great choice for a good home cooked meal

The Rio Grande Diner is an old reliable particularly when we feel like going out for breakfast and we're not sure where'd we'd like to go but don't want to risk not having a good meal, nothing special but good service and reliably good food
