Suburban Diner (Paramus)

Suburban Diner (Paramus)

A few weeks ago, I was in North Jersey around lunch. It was the perfect excuse to try another diner. I browsed the internet to see which diners were the closest and decided upon the Suburban Diner.  Anytime you go to a diner for brunch on the weekend, you know it’s going to be crowded. When we arrived, they said it would be about a ten-minute wait. It the 113 diners I’ve been too, I’ve only had to wait twice. Ten minutes ended up being two, and we were quickly seated.

Suburban Diner (ParamD

The outside of the Suburban Diner was modern with plenty of parking. It draws your attention in from the main road. The inside of the Suburban Diner is modern and spacious. The diner is centered around the bar. They have a unique mix of high and low tables as well as booths and counter space. However, the walls of the diner were noticeably dirty with smeared food on the wall.

Suburban Diner (Paramus) Service: A
Everything about the service at the Suburban Diner was excellent. We were sat quickly after arriving; our orders were taken immediately, and the food came out quickly too.  Unlike the diner last week, the food came out quickly.  This would even be considered fast service for an empty diner, but it was more than impressive since every table was being used.

Suburban Diner (Paramus) Food: A
Since we arrived at the Suburban Diner around 11, I was still in breakfast mode. The Suburban Diner menu has breakfast, lunch, and dinner at any time. I thought I was going to order the eggs benedict, but then I decided to order something off the menu I haven’t seen at a restaurant before. “The Orginal bowl.” The bowl contained potatoes, cheddar cheese, bacon, avocado, and I ordered over hard eggs. All of the ingredients were mixed into one giant bowl.  It reminded me of garbage plates in Rochester.  Everything tasted good, and I enjoyed the ingredients blended together.  It was a unique but delicious menu item.

Suburban Diner (Paramus) Dessert: A
While walking by the Suburban Diner dessert case, the red velvet cookie caught my eye. The cookie was dense and massive. I saved it for my hike later in the day.  Honestly, the cookie by itself was great, but it also gave me energy mid-hike.  My only complaint was it did taste like a giant red sugar cookie versus red velvet.  That being said, it was a good cookie and kept me energized during the hike.

For the coffee, eggs, and cookie, the cost was $12.  That’s extremely cheap for the amount of food I received.
