The Freeway Diner

Freeway Diner

When the New Jersey Isn’t Boring website owner asks if you want to go on a finer date, you don’t say no. It’s not allowed! Our first diner date was a few months ago to the Park Nine diner.

This time we opted to go the Freeway diner in Woodbury, NJ (Her review here)

I made such a great second impression. I was having a rough day and ended up going to the wrong diner. After realizing that I was at the wrong diner, I drove the 15 minutes down the road.  The last two weeks have been hectic for me so I’ve been having quite a few of these moments.  Hopefully the third date will be better!

Atmosphere: A 

I loved the atmosphere of the Freeway Diner. It was a throwback from the 50s. The pink blinds, pink chandeliers, pink booths and of course bar table. It was adorable and everything you picture in a diner. ‘

Coffee: A 

The waitress was really nice and refilled our coffee mugs several times. She also included overflowing whipped cream. She was a woman after my own heart! The coffee was great and the massive amount of whipped cream was appreciated.  I really liked everything about the coffee and whipped cream.

Food: B 

The menu was average. It had several normal diner options, no more or no less. I ordered my staple of the Greek salad with chicken. The salad was good, it was just a very small portion. I believe I could have eaten two of them. The Greek salad came with chicken, onions, lettuce, feta and two olives. It could have used more olives and more lettuce.  In fact I went home and had another meal two hours later.

Freeway Diner Salad

Cost: $ 

I can’t complain about the portion size because the meal was 10 dollars. It was one of the cheapest diner salads I’ve had in a while. I have no complaints about the portion size and price.  I would have paid more for a bigger salad though.  I hate going to a restaurant and still hungry.

Overall thoughts: B 

Would I come back?
I probably won’t come back just because there are closer diners that I like better. The diner is extremely inexpensive and I have no complaints about that. It wasn’t my favorite but it wasn’t bad either. It was a typical diner in New Jersey. I would recommend the Freeway Diner for anyone in Woodbury, NJ who is looking for a quick bite to eat.

Questions for you:

Have you ever gone to the wrong place before?

What is the cheapest restaurant meal you’ve gotten?

At a diner in college you could get an omelet and coffee for 6 dollars.
