Rio Grande Diner (Rio Grande, NJ)
After running the Cape May 10k, I was hungry and ready to eat. I arrived at the Rio Grande Diner around 10 am on a Saturday. A quick google search led me to the Rio Grande Diner.
Rio Grande Diner Atmosphere: B
The Rio Grande Diner looks like a typical NJ diner. There are several booths, tables, and a full-length bar. The hostess sat me next to the door which I wasn’t ecstatic about. The Rio Grande Diner could use interior updates. My booth had part of the booth duct taped up and needed a bit of a makeover.
Rio Grande Diner Coffee: A
The coffee was the locally brewed Lacas coffee, and I have no complaints. Our waiter refilled it often, and it tasted great.
Rio Grande Diner Food: A
I had no idea what I wanted. I had woken up early (4:30 am) so by 10 am I was starving for lunch. The Rio Grande Diner menu has everything you would want in a diner. There are plenty of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options.
I decided to order the Rio Grande Slam, which came with pancakes, bacon, eggs, and toast. I also ordered a cinnamon bun because I was craving one. Everything tasted good, and the cinnamon bun was extremely sweet. I have a big sweet tooth, so I don’t find a lot of things “too sweet.” In all, the food was excellent.
Our waiter was hilarious, and the food came out quickly. It was one of the better experiences I’ve had.Cost: $
For the Grande Slam, coffee, and cinnamon bun, the cost was $12.
Overall Summary/Would I come back to the Rio Grande Diner?
