Golden Star Diner (Ringoes)

A few weeks ago, I went up to the Golden Star Diner in Ringoes.  I haven’t been up that way, but my good friend Eric and I drove up.  It was nice to catch up.  The Golden Star is just under an hour north.

We got to the Golden Star Diner around 5:30, and it wasn’t too crowded.

Golden Star Diner Atmosphere: B
There isn’t anything too unique about the Golden Star Diner. It’s an old building, with outdated furnishings. It does have a cute little outdoor pond, and they were decorated for the outside.

The inside has a bar with plenty of booths and tables. We sat in a peaceful booth which was nice.

Golden Star Diner Coffee: A
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh, and I have no complaints. The waitress refilled it often.  There wasn’t anything too special about it, but it wasn’t bad.

Golden Star Diner Food: B
The Golden Star Diner menu has everything of a typical diner.  There are a lot more breakfast options, including several omelets.  There were also several wraps, sandwiches, and Greek specialties.  I decided the Greek Gyro Platter caught my eye and ordered that.

I also added Manhatten clam chowder. The clam chowder was good, and I like Manhatten clam chowder more than New England. There were plenty of clams and potatoes.Golden star diner ringos nj

The Greek Gyro platter came with a Greek Gyro and Greek salad.  I was indifferent about it.  I could have used more food, and I hesitate to call it a “platter.”  I don’t know why I think gyros will ever be easy eats, but I was able not to be as messy as possible.

Golden Star Diner Dessert: C
I was still hungry so decided to order bread pudding. The bread pudding was decent, except it was doused with too much cinnamon.  It wasn’t my least favorite but not my favorite either.

Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back to the Golden Star Diner (Ringoes)?
The Golden Star Diner was right in the middle as far as diners go.  It wasn’t especially good or bad. I wouldn’t be opposed to going back, but it wouldn’t be my first choice.

  1. I am not a fan of greek food because of all of the spices BUT it sounds like the diner would have lots of different options for folks that wanted simple food too. I have seen others ask this question too .. but could you possible “link” to the diner’s you visit?? It would make checking out these places so much easier! 🙂
