Last month, Angela and I met at the Peters Diner in Williamstown, NJ. (This is not to be confused with “Two Peters Diner” up north ha), Angela and I have been friends for a long time and hadn’t been able to grab lunch for a while, so it was nice to catch up before she left for the summer.
The outside of the diner is a picture perfect metallic diner. It’s everything you imagine from a stereotypical diner.
The inside is just a stereotypical diner. It’s one of the biggest diners I’ve been too, and there were dozens of tables.
The service at Peter’s Diner was decent. It wasn’t terribly busy, and the food came out quickly, but we could have used more water and beverages.
Peters diner serves Lacas brewed coffee. For those not in the northeast region, Lacas is brewed Pennsauken, NJ. It’s a great local brew and the coffee at Peters was perfect. The waitress also added lots of whipped cream too. Diners with Lacas coffee typically can’t go wrong.
Peters Diner has one of the biggest menus of any diners I’ve been too. There weren’t a lot of healthy options, but there were plenty of different options.
I ordered the Greek Gyro. It came with soup too. I ordered chicken and orzo which was good. There was definitely more orzo than chicken, but it was good soup.
When the Gyro came out, it was oozing tzatziki sauce, and it might have been the messiest meal I’ve ever had. I think half of my gyro ended up on Angela’s plate as I attempted to eat it. I don’t mind, though. To be honest, I like a lot of dressing on my foods. Even though it was difficult to eat, my gyro was good, and I was glad I ordered it.
I enjoyed the meal, but I wish it were a little easier to eat. I guess there is no easy way to eat a gyro.
For the coffee and gyro, the price was $11 which was a pretty good price.
Overall thoughts/Would I come back?
Out of the few diners in the area, Peters Diner is my favorite and I would come back. It was a good gyro for a diner. There are hundreds of different menu items so you would never get bored eating.
