Recently, I got dinner with Ariana at the Dynasty Diner. One of my many goals is to go to more shore diners this summer, and when Ariana was in town for the New Jersey Marathon, it worked out. I’ve followed Ariana on the internet for a long time, so it was great to finally connect at the Dynasty Diner (Tuckerton).
We arrived around 4:30 for dinner and it wasn’t crowded. The Dynasty Diner was a lot bigger than I anticipated. I hadn’t been to Tuckerton before, but it’s a cute small shore town.
The Dynasty Diner looks like a typical, chrome, shiny diner. The outside was big, shiny, and metallic. If you are looking for a stereotypical NJ diner, the Dynasty Diner meets that.
The inside had a full-length bar, with retro booths, and tables. The Dynasty Diner meets all stereotypes of a NJ Diner.
The coffee at the Dynasty Diner was good. It was brewed hot and fresh, and I didn’t have any complaints about the coffee. I could have used more refills but other than it was good. The Dynasty Diner serves Lacas coffee, and you are even able to buy it up front if you choose.
The Dynasty Diner serves everything a stereotypical diner would serve. It follows the unwritten “diner guidelines.” There are plenty of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. It also has a page dedicated to Greek specialties. Originally I had planned to get a gyro, but when that wasn’t an option, I ordered the Greek salad on the fly.
When the Greek salad came out, it was massive. The waitress said it was enough to feed four people and she wasn’t joking. Enough to feed four people ended up being me. I liked the Greek salad, however, there were a few things it was missing including anchovies and onions. It had plenty of lettuce but could have used more toppings. The dressing was good, and in all, I enjoyed it.
The waitress at the Dynasty Diner was friendly, and our food came out extremely fast.
For my salad and coffee, the cost was $13.
Overall Thoughts/Summary of the Dynasty Diner (Tuckerton):
I had a great time at the Dynasty Diner, and it is definitely one of my favorite shore diners. I would love to go back to the Dynasty Diner or Tuckerton sometime!
