About two months ago I drove by The Six Brothers Diner in Little Falls, NJ. When I drove by, I thought it was a fancy restaurant, but quickly realized it was a diner. I moved it to my to-do list, but since I have about 100 diners on the immediate list, that doesn’t mean a lot. Plus the Six Brothers Diner is about 90 minutes from my house. I don’t mind driving around the state, but I generally save those diners for when I’m already up North.
In this case, my husband and I were hiking at Hemlock Falls, and since we were close by, we opted to finally try the Six Brothers Diner.
The Six Brothers Diner is huge. It looks like it could easily sit 500 people and host a banquet. It’s got large windows, and it’s open and spacious. The inside has multiple rooms, a bar, and a dessert case. The inside is one of my favorite modern diners because there is so much room. I don’t feel like I’m violating anyone’s personal space.
Six Brothers Diner wasn’t crowded. However, our waitress was barely at our table. When we asked for drink refills, it felt as if we were bothering her. Maybe she was doing something in the back, but there were about 15 other people in the entire restaurant and she never appeared to be busy. Appearances are deceiving, though.
The coffee wasn’t fantastic, but it wasn’t bad either. It was simply average. I wish the cup was larger, or I had more refills, but it wasn’t bad. I have nothing interesting to write about it. The table backdrop is unique.
After a less than stellar, start to our meal the Six Brothers Diner shines at food. The menu is huge and has plenty of different options. They have all day breakfast, multiple burgers and an entire page dedicated to salads. Recently I’ve gone to a few diners that do have all day breakfast. Isn’t that a traditional diner staple?
After six miles of hiking, I was starving and ordered: “The Brooklyn Burger” with sweet potato fries. It was a cheeseburger with an entire layer of mozzarella cheese. The burger was cooked perfectly. I enjoyed the crunchiness of the sweet potato fries as well. I’ve never had a mozzarella cheeseburger before, but it was good. The sweet potato fries were good.
For the burger and coffee, the cost was $15 which wasn’t inexpensive, but it also wasn’t expensive either.
Summary/Would I come back?
The Six Brothers Diner was good. The quality of food was high too, and if I were in the area again, I would come back. Based on the service when it was empty, I would try and come on quiet days, or you might be there for hours.
