Golden Pigeon Diner (Bridgeton, NJ)

A couple of weeks ago, I finally made it to the Golden Pigeon Diner in Bridgeton, NJ. Why finally?  I’ve been excited to make the Golden Pigeon Diner work because of the name. Except for the “Time to Eat” diner, The Golden Pigeon Diner has one of the coolest names.

Golden Pigeon Diner Atmosphere: B
The Golden Pigeon Diner is typical of a New Jersey Diner.  The outside is a mixture of both cobblestone and metallic in the front.  There is a huge sign that says “diner” and fresh baking on premises.  The promise of fresh baking is enough to lure anyone in.

Golden Pigeon Diner Coffee: C
The coffee was good. However, they were out of whipped cream!  A diner with fresh baking and no whipped cream?  Oh well, it’s only happened a few times.  I don’t always get coffee with whipped cream, and I do prefer it.

Golden Pigeon Diner Food: A
The Golden Pigeon Diner menu has everything you can imagine in a diner.  There are plenty of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options.  I’ll warn you that the portions are enormous. I decided to order the Pork Chop special, and it did not disappoint.

I’ve never had anything like it! It started with the choice of salads, and I chose a Greek which came with anchovies (off to a good start). Golden Pigeon Diner Bridgeton NJ

I also got amazing fresh cheese bread. If you have never had cheese bread, it’s a bread baked with cheese in the center.

My three pork chops came with sautéed onions and on top of hashbrowns as well as french fries.  It was unique, ultra filling, and I have no complaints. I wasn’t expecting the french fries, so it was a filling addition. Golden Pigeon Diner Bridgeton NJ

For my side, I chose beets. I’m happy I did because I knew it would be a lot of food and I like good beets.

Questions for you:
Do you like pork chops?
What is one of your favorite restaurant names?


  1. I love pork chops … unfortunately a lot of restaurants do not cook them how I’d like them to be. Would you say that the Diner was able to cook them well enough so that they weren’t super chewy? Also, do you think you would say that the coffee was “that bad” or was it simply a “C” because of the lack of whipped cream??

    1. It wasn’t the best coffee ever and I would have given it a B, but the lack of whipped cream bumped it to a C. The pork chops weren’t chewy at all. I really liked them!
