Rehoboth Diner

Rehoboth Diner (Rehoboth Beach, De)

The Rehoboth Diner was a unique experience, to say the least.  When we arrived around 11 am, it was busy and most tables were taken.

Rehoboth Diner Atmosphere: B
The Rehoboth Diner sticks out on the main road. It’s not a big, shiny, metallic diner, but the “24-7” can’t be missed. The inside of the Rehoboth Diner is average size. You walk in next to a bakery.  There are several booths, tables, and a bar. We were sat at a table between booths. It’s my least favorite seating, but there are minimal choices when it’s busy.

Rehoboth Diner Coffee: B
The coffee at the Rehoboth Beach Diner was average. It wasn’t the best nor the worst, but it was decent coffee. I could have used more.

Rehoboth Diner Food: C

The Rehoboth Diner menu has most everything a regular diner has. Since we got to the Rehoboth Diner around 11 am, we were only given a breakfast menu. I’m sure I could have asked for a lunch menu but decided breakfast was fine.  I decided to order the steak and eggs.

When it came out, I was disappointed that my steak wasn’t that big (for a $16 breakfast meal). Interesting because the Rehobeth Beach Diner is known for its big portions and generous portions. The steak itself was cooked medium rare, but it was bland in flavor. I chose scrambled eggs and rye toast. Everything was good, but not great.  Next time I go, I’ll probably order something else.

Rehoboth Diner Service: C
To preface, our waitress at the Rehoboth Beach Diner was great. She was friendly and working hard. The manager came by our table midmeal and asked us to move tables so another party could sit. It wasn’t a big deal, but weird.  As we were leaving, a man came storming in to talk about “how unhappy he was.”

Rehoboth Diner Price: $$
For my steak and eggs, plus coffee, it as $20. Which the meal wasn’t worth that.

Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back to the Rehoboth Diner?
The Rehoboth Diner wasn’t the worst nor the best diner I’ve been too. I would be interested in trying something off the Rehoboth Diner lunch menu.

Brookside Diner (Whippany)

Brookside Diner (Whippany, NJ)

On my way to hiking, I decided to stop at the Brookside Diner in Whippany, NJ. Since it was Labor Day and about 7:30 am, there weren’t too many people in the Brookside Diner.

Atmosphere: A
The Brookside Diner exterior is a modern diner. It isn’t metallic or shiny, but it is an appealing diner. Parked in the lot, were several vintage cars including an old Thunderbird (all from customers).

The inside of the Brookside Diner has several banners. There is a full-length bar, multiple tables, and booths too. It’s everything you want or need in a diner.

Coffee: A
The coffee at the Brookside Diner is brewed hot and fresh. The waiter added plenty of whipped cream, and I was given plenty of refills.

Food: A
The Brookside Diner has everything you want and need in a diner. The Brookside Diner has all-day breakfast, lunch, and dinner options too. Since it was 7:30 am, I ordered one of my favorite diner breakfasts: steak and eggs. I had the choice of “ribeye steak and eggs” or “sliced steak and eggs,” I thought: why not and decided to treat myself to the ribeye steak and eggs.

Brookside Diner (whippany) me steak and eggs

I underestimated the size of the ribeye steak and eggs. The steak itself must have been over 16 ounces. It was cooked exactly how I asked, rare, and I have no complaints. In fact, it was one of my more favorite diner steak meals (including dinner). The home fries tasted like pure vegetable oil, which I expect from many diners.

Dessert: A
The chocolate chip muffins at the Brookside Diner looked appetizing, so I decided to take one to go on my hike. Since I was out hiking, everything tasted good, but I appreciated how dense the muffin was.  Plus, there were plenty of chocolate chips.

Brookside Diner Service: A
Our waitress at the Brookside Diner was friendly, and our food came out fast. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Brookside Diner Cost: $
For my ribeye steak and eggs and muffin, the cost was $21. The meal itself was easily two meals for anyone.

Overall Thoughts/Would I come back to the Brookside Diner (Whippany)?
I enjoyed the Brookside Diner, and if I get the opportunity, I will be back. The entire menu looks delicious, and I would love to stop by and try a few dinner options.

Kings Arms II Diner (Belford, NJ)

Last week, my good friend Layla was in NYC so we decided to meet at the Kings Arms II Diner (Belford, NJ). I picked her up from the Middletown Train Station and it was an easy drive to the Kings Arms II Diner.

We arrived for lunch and there was an entire page of salad specials. None of them spoke to me but I was craving a salad. Since I was at the Kings Arms II Diner, I decided to order the Kings Arms salad with steak. It came with mixed greens, pears, craisins, walnuts, goat cheese and sherry vinaigrette.

I added the steak. It concerned me when the waitress didn’t ask how I wanted my steak done but once it came out, it was cooked medium are which I like.

It wasn’t the best salad I’ve had and for the cost, I could have used more greens.

Rt 70 Diner Lakewood

Rt 70 Diner (Lakewood)

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.

Rt 70 Diner Lakewood

Atmosphere: B
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.

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.

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.

Elmwood Park Diner

Elmwood Park Diner (Elmwood Park, NJ)

While on the way to Upstate, NY, my husband and I stopped at the Elmwood Park Diner in Elmwood Park. Road trips can be nice because we can hit some of the most northern diners in NJ.

It was around dinner time, and the Elmwood Park Diner itself wasn’t crowded.

Elmwood Park Diner Atmosphere: A
The Elmwood Park Diner looks like it was bought off a diner website. It’s a big, shiny, metallic diner and looks like something you might see in the movies.  If you are in the area and just looking for a diner that meets the stereotype: diner, the Elmwood Park Diner is for you.

The inside has plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar. There is a good looking dessert case too.

Elmwood Park Diner Coffee: B
The coffee at Elmwood Park Diner was good, but I wanted more. I finished my coffee and could have used more refills.

Elmwood Park Diner Food: B
The Elmwood Park Diner menu is overwhelming. I’ve been to over 300 diners and the Elmwood Park Diner had one of the biggest menus of any diner I’ve been too.  There is a page dedicated to salads, pancakes, waffles, seafood, and steak…there is an option for everyone.

I decided to order the land and sea option, which came with both steak and scallops.  I started with a salad and soup.  The salad was very dry and bland. I was worried my meal wouldn’t be great based on the salad.

Elmwood Park diner

The land and sea entree was great. I appreciated the large portion of steak as well as the seasoned scallops (which I believe was just extra salt). I also enjoyed the side of cabbage. In all, it was a good meal.
