NJ101.5 Staff Reveal Their Diner Favorites [LIST]
Jersey and diners go hand in hand. After all, who doesn’t love gorging themselves on some mood food at any hour of the day? Gearing up for Dennis and Judi’s 2014 Diner Tour we wanted to share some of our favorite diner meals with you here at New Jersey 101.5.
“A California burger. Lettuce, tomato, mayo, and onion, with fries. As an alternative, “Greek omelette with spinach, feta, and a side of mushroom.”
"An egg white omelette with feta cheese, spinach, tomato, and hash browns.”

“It’s been my tradition for the last 10 years to get a Greek salad at 1:07pm at every one of the diners on the Diner Tour. This will be my eleventh year running and I don’t plan on breaking it! You can tell a lot about a diner by it’s Greek salad.”
“French toast. You gotta get breakfast at the diner.” Don’t forget the butter and syrup!
“The daring version of Dennis’ meal. A california burger with bacon and disco fries.”
“Fried flounder!” And if I'm feeling “really diner-y,” I'll get an order of mac and cheese or rice pilaf as a side. “I might also have a chocolate milkshake and fries depending on how I’m feeling.”
“I love a basic cheeseburger. Medium with cheese, tomato, lettuce, raw white onion, and a side of fries.”
“Grilled cheese and fries is always a good go-to meal. Grilled cheese or salad.”
“A feta cheese omelette with wheat toast, butter on the side, and cottage cheese instead of home fries.”
“I think diners were made for breakfast.” I enjoy two eggs over easy with wheat toast, and either bacon, scrapple, or hash browns (depending on my mood). If it’s lunchtime, soup is a standard choice. And for dinner, a gyro from a real Greek diner is a must.
“Can’t go wrong with California cheeseburger after the bar closes.” And if you can score some onion rings- not just fries- you’ve hit the jackpot.
“A happy waitress. It’s a grilled cheese sandwich with a tomato slice and bacon.” Who doesnt love a happy waitress, God knows I do!

"My favorite is a diner classic: Disco Fries! Or to translate, fries with brown gravy and mozzarella cheese."
