Olga’s Diner (Marlton)

Those who lie in South Jersey will know, Olga’s Diner used to be one of the most famous and popular diners in the area. It closed in 2008 and before I moved here. Sad, because everyone I talked to said it was the best. The original property in Marlton Circle at Route 70 and 73 was bought and the property was transformed into a medical building.  The new property is on the Northbound side of 73 on Baker Boulevard (less than a tenth of a mile away).

A year ago, a new family decided to recreate Olga’s Diner right up the road on route 73. It wasn’t the original family or original building, but the name Olgas.  When it finally opened in November of 2019, I was excited to go!

My friend Cyd from New Jersey Isn’t Boring and I met up around lunchtime on a weekday. It was packed! You would think we were going on a busy Sunday morning.

Olga’s Diner Atmosphere: A
Olga’s Diner stands out on route 73. It’s hard to miss the big, shiny, modern building. The inside of Olga’s Diner is large. Each booth and table is spread out, so you don’t feel like you’re sitting on top of anyone.

Coffee: B
The coffee at Olga’s Diner is good. Olga’s Diner uses the local company, Lacas. I could have used a few more refills.

Olga’s Diner Food: A
Olga’s Diner menu has everything you want and need in a diner.  There are plenty of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. If you are looking for healthy options, Olga’s Diner has that too. Plus an entire page menu dedicated to vegan options. Yes, vegan!  I thought about getting a vegan option just because Olga’s Diner had it but ultimately decided for the beet salad with rotisserie chicken. If beets are on any restaurant menu, I usually order them.

The beets tasted good and the greens were fresh. There was plenty of chicken too. I couldn’t taste a difference in the rotisserie-style chicken versus grilled.

Olga’s Diner Dessert: B
Cyd mentioned the original Olga’s Diner was known for their Boston Cream Pie, so we both decided to order that. The Boston Cream Pie was good, but the cake portion of it was a little dry.

Olga’s Diner Service: A
The waitress said it was her first day, but you would not have guessed. She was friendly and seemed like she was working there for a long time. The food came out quickly. We were sat and eating our food within 15 minutes of arriving.

Cost: $$

For my coffee, salad, and pie, it was $25. The salad alone was nearly $19, which I found a bit pricey for the size.

Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back?
I liked Olga’s Diner, and I’ll be back. The food was excellent, and Olga’s Diner has a lot of menu options I want to try.

  1. Olga’s!!! I have such fond memories of the original Olga’s; it was our go-to when we visited family with limited cooking skills in southern Jersey. Sad to hear the original closed (I can picture it in my head! Childhood memories are strong…) but glad to know this one has been opened. Love all your diner reviews – particularly since they are fewer and further between here in the Midwest…
