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 around 5 pm.  It wasn’t too crowded, and there was plenty of seating.

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 definitely 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.

Service: B
The waitress 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.

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.

Food: B
The Key City Diner has everything you could picture in a diner.  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.

Cost: $
For my gyro, salad, and coffee, the cost was $12.

Overall Summary/Would I come back?
I enjoyed the Key City Diner, and if I’m back in the area, I would come back.  It’s above average, and in the middle of diners, I’ve been too
