We go here quite often. I like that it's not your typical diner food, and has a scaled down menu, and the prices are fair. The food is always fresh and always tastes delicious. The service is good as well, you're served quickly but not...More

The Americana is great anytime of the day. Food is really good. Whatever is on the menu, you can get as take-out. Did that A LOT! Also have gone in for dinner and had a beer as there is a bar located inside as well....More

Food does not disappoint if you are into quality over quantity. This diner is very well known in the Princeton area for a long time. I take visiting family from out-of-state here.

This is the first Diner in NJ that I have ever been too where you can put their menu on a napkin. I don't think the owners have a clue about NJ diners.

I use to love this place. It was a true diner and always a wait because the food was so good. Now they butchered the menu, smaller portions and made it "artisan". Why. Just why. Now the parking lot is empty. I hope they realize...More
