Key City Diner (Phillipsburg)
Recently I went to the Key City Diner in Phillipsburg. It came highly recommended so when the opportunity presented itself; I drove a bit out of my way to go.
I arrived at the Key City Diner around 5 pm. It wasn’t too crowded, and there was plenty of seating.
Key City Diner Atmosphere: A
You can’t miss the Key City Diner. When driving by, there is a giant Key Sign, and it looks like a stereotypical diner. It’s a big metallic, shiny, diner and is everything you picture in a diner. If you’re looking to bring friends to a picture-perfect NJ diner, this is your spot.
The inside feels as if you stepped into a time machine when diners were created. Interestingly enough, there was also a decently sized salad bar too, which is something many now lack.
Key City Diner Service: B
The waitress at the Key City Diner was a bit awkward and either new or not comfortable. She did refill our beverages, and the food came out quickly, but every interaction was awkward.
For instance, I ordered a beef gyro, and she miscorrected me of how to pronounce gyro. Then later, she pronounced it a different way: not a big deal, just many small awkward interactions.
Key City Diner Coffee: B
There was nothing unusual or unique about the coffee, but it wasn’t bad either. The waitress brewed it hot and kept it refilled.
Key City Diner Food: B
The Key City Diner menu has everything you could picture in a diner. One the Key City Diner menu, there is breakfast all day, multiple dinner meals, salads, and seafood. As I mentioned, it also has a salad bar too.
I opted for a beef Gyro with a Caesar salad. The gyro itself was good and had plenty of beef. It came with fries which they gave me an entire plate. The Caesar salad was filled, and I appreciated they already added the dressing.
For my gyro, salad, and coffee, the cost was $12.
Overall Summary/Would I come back to the Key City Diner?
I enjoyed the Key City Diner, and if I’m back in the area, I will come back. The Key City Diner is above average, and in the middle of diners, I’ve been too
