We met up on a weekday for lunch, and the diner wasn’t too crowded.
I’ve driven by the Prestige Diner a few times. It’s a typical building with a giant slanted roof. It’s not shiny, metallic, or even the familiar cobblestone, but it does say “Diner” on it. The inside is typical of most New Jersey Diners as well. There is a full-length bar, booths, and plenty of tables. It’s one of the bigger diners I’ve been too in a while.
The Prestige Diner coffee is good. It came in a cute, little, mug and the waitress refilled it a few times. There wasn’t anything unusual or interesting about it, but I don’t have any complaints either.
The menu of the Prestige Diner is massive. They have everything from breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The size of the menu surprised me because nothing was online. Usually, that means the diner menu is smaller. I was between a few things but ultimately decided to go with the “Firecracker Chicken Pita.” The pita was filled with chicken, mozzarella, lettuce, and avocado. To be honest, I was expecting more of a spice and “fire”. The ingredients were good, which is why I chose it but with a name like “firecracker,” you expect something hot.
The wrap itself was stuffed to the brim with both avocado and chicken, so I was happy. It’s one of the better pita sandwiches I’ve had in a while.
The waitress was definitely very poker-faced. While she wasn’t rude, she was very intense and had a strong personality. We waited a while to order, but then the food came out quickly.
For my coffee and pita, it was about $12.
I liked the Prestige Diner, and it was surprising with how big the menu was. It is one of my more favorite diners in the area.
