Recently I was at the Linden House Diner in Linden, NJ. I was hungry so decided to stop.
The Linden House Diner is definitely different from many diners. It’s a small, local, diner. There are plenty of cute little coffee designs on the wall. It almost reminds me more of a bistro versus diner. It’s apparently a locals place, and I enjoyed that vibe.
The waitress brought plenty of refills. She brewed a fresh pot and made sure drinks were always refilled.
The menu at the Linden House Diner is not as big as all diners but there are still plenty of options. There were breakfast, lunch, and dinner options but not 100 pages like many diners. It has a reasonable menu.
I had no idea what I wanted but ended up ordering a burger. I can’t remember the exact name of the burger but it was topped with bacon and cheese. In all, it was a surprisingly good burger. The sweet potato fries were one of the best I’ve had in a long time! Nothing crazy to write home about but a good burger and I have no complaints.
The waitress was very friendly and kept our beverages refilled. She always made sure we had everything we needed. One thing I also enjoyed is it was clear the staff was all friends. They would chat about random things and all got along. It’s always nice to see that! To top it off, our food came out quickly.
For my burger and coffee, the cost was $14.
