After the Irish Festival 5k last month, I found myself hungry in North Bergen. Going to diners on the weekend can be hit or miss regarding how busy they are, especially in North Bergen. When I arrived around 11:00, every table but one was taken. Perfect! By the time I left, around noon it was much less crowded.
The Boulevard Diner is everything you expect in a diner. The outside is modern, while the inside has plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar. There is also an alcohol bar which is more common in North Jersey than south.
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh, and the waitress brought a few refills. There was nothing to write home about, but it was good coffee. Not that I should have drunk as much as I did since I was on a road trip.
There is everything you can imagine at the Boulevard Diner. There are plenty of breakfast options, as well as healthy lunch options, and of course dinners such as seafood and steak. As usual, after a road race, I tend to be somewhat hungry. I decided to order the steak and eggs. Sometimes diner steak is awful, and sometimes it’s good.
Luckily this was not only good but the best diner steak I’ve personally had. The portion for a breakfast steak was also huge! It was cooked medium rare as requested with two over easy eggs. It was definitely one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a while.
For how busy the Boulevard Diner was, our waitress was very attentive and friendly. Our food came out extremely fast as well.
For my steak and eggs and coffee, the cost was $18.
Overall Thoughts/ Would I Come Back?
I enjoyed the Boulevard Diner a lot, and it was definitely one of the better diners I’ve been too.
