Saddle Brook Diner

Recently I was in Saddle Brook, NJ and I decided to stop at the Saddle Brook Diner.  There were a few diners around but the Saddle Brook seemed like the easiest to get too.

Saddle Brook Diner Atmosphere: A
The retro Saddle Brook Diner sticks out on the main road. It’s a large, retro-looking diner and blast from the past.

Saddle Brook Diner

The inside of the Saddle Brook Diner has plenty of booths, tables, and a large bar section. If you’re looking for a picture-perfect diner, the Saddle Brook Diner is it.

Saddle Brook Diner Coffee: B

The coffee at the Saddle Brook Diner was good. There was nothing unique or unusual about it, but it was good.

Saddle Brook Diner Food: B

The Saddle Brook Diner menu has everything a diner typically has. There are plenty of breakfast options from pancakes to eggs, as well as lunch and dinner options.

I was hoping to find a Saddle Brook Diner menu special, but all of the specials were almost pasta and I wasn’t in the mood for the pasta.

Saddle Brook Diner salad

I decided to order the seafood kabob. It came with scallops, shrimp, and grilled vegetables all topped on rice. It also came with a side salad.

The side salad was ok. It had greens, as well as a few unique items, including beans.

The seafood kabob was unique as that it didn’t come on a stick. They removed it already. The seafood tasted good, but I do wish there were more grilled vegetables.

It wasn’t a lot of food for the price. It was a lot of rice and the quality of the salad wasn’t great.

Saddle Brook Diner Service: C
The waitress at the Saddle Brook Diner was friendly. The manager put my table directly at the front with the light in our eyes. Whenever the waitress came over, we were squinting. It always seemed like we were bothering the staff when we asked for something.

Saddle Brook Diner Cost: $$
For the coffee and meal, it was $25. It was costly for the quality and amount of food.

Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back to the Saddle Brook Diner?
I probably won’t be back. The Saddle Brook Diner is a decent diner, but it’s an expensive diner for the amount of food you get.

Exercisers You’ll See During Social Distancing

Luckily for the US, exercise is permitted right now. With most everything shut down, exercise and outdoor activity seems like one thing we can control. YAY, as long as your safe and stay 6 feet apart, exercise is great for both the body and mind. (This is a running blog after all, so you don’t have to tell me that twice).

March Training: 8 Miles and an Injury

Admittedly, I thought until a few days ago; this would be my first zero mileage month. Then I realized, my last run was on March 1. So with that, I log 8 miles and one race in March.

Squirrel’s Nut Butter Review

For the longest time, I thought Squirrel’s Nut Butter was a type of peanut butter. I saw people promoting it and that’s what I thought it was.  I didn’t research it and didn’t hear much about it.

But it’s not…

Injury Wk 4: Strength Work

It’s hard to believe I’m now four weeks deep into a calcaneus stress fracture. Everything else in the world seems more important. Even if I was healthy, like any runner, all my races are canceled or postponed. I get to start a slow return to running in another two weeks. So I guess I’ll begin counting down to that.
