Last month, I found myself in Englewood around lunchtime, so I decided to stop at the Jackson Hole Diner. The Jackson Hole actually has a few locations in NYC and one in NJ.
I heard it was a good stop. I wasn’t starving, but I didn’t want to get stuck in traffic over the George Washington Bridge and be starving.
The Jackson Hole is a nostalgic diner. The outside is metallic and shiny, and the inside has multiple booths, tables, and a full-length bar. It’s actually much bigger than I thought. I ended up sitting in a back room that I didn’t realize even existed. To get to the backroom, you cut through the bar. In the back room, you can see there is actually a downstairs which I think is just a staff room but I’m not sure.
Something that did save the Jackson Hole was the orange juice actually had a lot of pulp and looked as if it was fresh squeezed.
The Jackson Hole has plenty of options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I wasn’t starving and decided to default to a Greek Salad. It was cheap and filling. There was plenty of lettuce and toppings, and I have no complaints. It wasn’t massive but good for what I needed for the day. It could have used more toppings as well as pita bread, but other than that, it was good.
Our waiter disappeared for long periods of times and we never received refills. I wondered if we were forgotten about because we were in the back corner.
For the salad and coffee, it was $18 which was a bit pricey for the amount of food. It was one of the cheaper lunch and dinner options though.
I liked the Jackson Hole and I thought it was decent food. It was right in the middle of diners as they go. I do wonder how the New York Diners compare and I might try and go to one. If I come back, I’ll make sure it’s when I’m more hungry and want to try something new.

Questions for you:
Do you like orange juice or juice with pulp?
What is the worst traffic you’ve ever sat in?
There was once a fire on the Delaware Memorial Bridge, and they forced everyone to exit the turnpike at exit 4. Every single person was single filed through the toll booth, and it took over 90 minutes to go 10 miles.
