Recently I wanted to get out of town, so I decided to take a drive. I wasn’t sure where but I decided Marlboro would be a fun town to visit. It’s just south of the Garden State Parkway which means I avoided summer traffic.
The Marlboro Diner is modern and clean. There is a large diner sign. It isn’t metallic or shiny, but a modern building.
The inside is massive and has plenty of seating from booths, tables, and a full-length bar.
The coffee was good, but there wasn’t anything unique or unusual about it.
The Marlboro Diner has everything you can imagine in a diner. There is all-day breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
I decided to order the hummus appetizer and the broiled pork chop special, which came with soup, salad, and two sides.
The hummus appetizer was one of their specials, and you can never go wrong with that. It was one of the better hummus specials I’ve had. There were also carrots, which is unique.
The Broiled Pork Chops came with a lot of sides.
Since it was an option, I decided to change my side salad to a Greek side salad, and I was disappointed. The Greek salad was watery. It tasted like the greens were sitting for a while, which is why they were soggy.
For my soup, I ordered the chicken noodle. It was good but nothing out of the ordinary. There wasn’t much chicken.
The pork chops themselves were excellent. They were a bit overcooked, but they were still good. For my sides, I ordered sweet potato and broccoli, and both tasted good as well.
In all, it was a decent meal. I wished the salad was fresher and the pork chops weren’t as overdone.
For the hummus appetizer, coffee, and meal, it was $30.
The waitress was friendly, and my food came out quickly. In all, I have no complaints.
The Malboro Diner was good. The food was a little bit bland, but the service was excellent. I would go back if I’m in the area again.
