    This place is great! The food is a little pricey for a diner but definitely well worth it! And the place looks and feels very high class! :) Definitely recommend stopping by here for a meal.

    Dislikes: fries, guac, & their "marinera sauce". Red velvet cheesecake & carrot cake are huge portions! Friend&I got the slices but in half to share&the portions were still so generous&so delicious!!

    Everything. Seriously. But if I had a gun to my head then chicken pot pie, philly cheesesteak egg rolls, chicken and waffles, bananas foster french toast washed all down with a frozen hot chocolate.

    My mother and I just ate here. It's by far the best diner that I've ever been to. I suggest the roasted brussel sprouts, Texas fries, chicken quesadilla. Don't get me wrong everything is delicious!

    Always satisfied. Best Diner in the area for sure. They play EDM for the late night crowd. Portions are huge. The Ultimate Mac and Cheese can feed 4 people. Good service everytime i've been there.

    Huge menu, excellent food, text alert when your table is ready, and a large parking lot — everything you'd want in a modern diner!

    A very fancy diner. Get the Snickers cheesecake and a rib eye + eggs breakfast sampler. Delicious. Wash down with house coffee without cream.

    Huevos rancheros were flavorful and the blueberry pancakes (4 or 6 stack) will hit the spot! Pass on the coffee drinks if you don't like super sweet and just get the regular endless cup.

    Great food. Reasonable prices. Def try the New England clam chowder, pull pork with Mac and cheese and garlic bread, strawberry sangria and tres leches. You won't regret it

    The staff works together as a team to make sure you have the best service! Boyfriend says it like indie when they are setting up a group table. Everything on the menu is supersized and delicious.

    Best diner in NJ hands down. Everything is delicious, but save room for some awesome desserts. Can get super busy after soccer or hockey games in Newark.

    Try the BBQ Chicken Salad - Deeeelicious! .. grilled chicken instead of fried.. with corn. Whole cherry tomatoes, red beans and tortilla strips with a Little gorganzola :)

    I have gone here so many times and I've never gotten anything that hasn't been fantastic. A great place to share food. The cheesecake is the best.

    Clearly the best diner restaurant in New Jersey. The food is awesome and it's on the level of some of the better "regular" restaurants around.

    In a state teeming with diners, this is surely “top” dog. The menu is enormous, but the MVP is Tops’ famous meatloaf with gravy. Read more

    Going on the late night - expect a wait. If there was a event in the area, the wait will be longer than usual.

    Always crowded, always good! No matter what you order. On take out always double check the counter ; they forget fries all the time .

    Decent service, but everything vegetarian here is always a let down. My boyfriend's chicken sandwich looked amazing, but my roasted veggie wrap was just a lettus burrito

    Great for diner-licious take out! The service is friendly and fast. I suggest going for one of the burgers if take-out is what you're looking for.

    Get calamari with remoulade sauce. So good! An appetizer that can stand as a meal on its own.

    I've never ate a turkey burger as dry as the one from Tops today. Food service has sure declined over the years...that's a shame!
