Recently I met up with personal friend Christine at the Whitehorse Diner in Hamilton, NJ. Not to be confused with the Black Horse Diner in Camden County. Until a week ago, I hadn’t heard of the Whitehorse Diner, but with over 500 diners in the garden state, you’re bound to find one (or 100) you haven’t heard of.
We arrived on a Friday for lunch, and it wasn’t crowded at all. In fact, for most of our meal, we were the only ones.
The atmosphere of the Whitehorse diner is what you picture for a diner. The outside is big, metallic, and shiny while the inside has plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar.
The coffee was brewed hot each time, and I had no issues with it. It was definitely one of the better coffees I’ve had lately.
Since we were the only ones in the Whitehorse diner, the attention was all on us. I’ve seen this go both ways in restaurants. The waiter or waitress is either overbearing or doesn’t show up much at all. For us, it was perfect, and the waitress gave us plenty of attention, refilled our beverages but didn’t hover.
The menu at the Whitehorse diner is everything you could want in a diner plus several additional healthy choices. They have breakfast, lunch and dinner specials. I opted for something more healthy. Both Christine and I ordered the same thing! Twinners are winners right?
We ordered a Greek salad with arugula and salmon. When it came out, I couldn’t ask for a better salad. It was a huge portion of salmon, and everything was fresh.
For my salad with salmon and coffee, the cost was $16. I can’t complain at all because the food was fresh.
I liked the Whitehorse Diner and have no complaints. They have a great menu with a lot of options. I wish they advertised more because they are hidden.
Questions for you:
What is your favorite salad?
What is the last hidden restaurant you’ve found?
