Recently I went to the Rt. 70 Diner in Lakewood, NJ. As the name indicates, it’s located right off of Route 70. The Route 70 Diner is actually a fairly new diner and opened earlier in January. To my knowledge, there wasn’t a different diner in the shopping center location previously.
We needed a new diner and it’s becoming harder and harder to find a diner both NJ Isn’t Boring and I haven’t been too. She’s actually been to about 20-30 more than I have and we’ve been to somewhere around 50 diners together.
The Rt 70 Diner is located in a small shopping center next to a few other restaurants. The outside blends in with the shopping center, while the inside is decorated like a stereotypical diner. There are a few booths, tables, and a bar up front. There isn’t more than about 20 seats in the Route 70 Diner, so it’s not huge.
The coffee at the Rt. 70 Diner was brewed hot and fresh. The waitress brought plenty of refills.
The Route 70 Diner is open until 3 pm and has plenty of breakfast and lunch options. They have plenty of specials as well. I was in the mood for breakfast, so I ordered the ribeye and eggs. It also came with home fries and toast.
I asked for the steak medium. It was cooked as requested. The eggs were excellent and the toast had plenty of butter. In all, the meal was good, and I would order it again.
The waitress was friendly, and our food came out quickly. I have no complaints. I enjoyed her humor as well.
For my meal and coffee; the cost was $14.
Overall Thoughts/Would I come back?
I liked the Route 70 Diner in Lakewood and it was a good stop. I would go back. Its a cute, easy, quick stop to the shore. The small shopping center parking might be an issue on a busy day but it’s worth the stop.
