Years, ago, the Budd Lake Diner was the first and only 24 hour anything in town for miles. Budd Lake's relatively few shops in this sleepy hamlet, closed their shops at dusk. The Budd Lake Diner was a revelation back then and for many years, had no competition. Local good food was as hard to come by in the area... More

The waitstaff is great here. Always efficient, pleasant and they almost know what you want before you do! Food is typical diner..nothing extraordinary..but sometimes it's nice not to have to deal with too many choices.

We eat here all the time and up till today never had anything but good reviews. My main course, chicken cordon bleu, was fine but my wife's, broiled trout, was not up to par. All the sides including the soup was cold. Hopefully this was a bad night.

One of New Jersey's iconic diners. Open 24 hours and serving breakfast food around the clock. Doesn't matter if you go alone or with a big crew. Staff is very friendly and food is delicious.

Several positive reviews prompted me to opt for this diner over the King Wok equally nearby. The diner rightfully bragged that it was voted best in the county for a number of years. But I don't know what earned them that distinction. I literally think I fought off a cold from eating the not very tasty meat in the hamburger... More

Best food around for variety, taste, and cost! The menu has plenty to offer and everyone can find something they like. Diner is clean, employees personable, and although sometimes busy, service is great and worth the wait!
