These diners have all been placed on the New Jersey Retro Roadmap, and I took special care to make sure that the street addresses lined up with where the diner actually is, as sometimes the Google Map pin or mailing address isn’t it. Any way I can make it easier for you to check out these diners, it’s worth it!

    Kool. That “At The Hop” Diner used to be my old hangout when I went to Stockton State College in Pomona, NJ. Spent a lot of money on burgers and shakes in that place. It was a Chinese restaurant in the 70′s and early 80′s, then closed and was abandoned for a few years. Somewhere in the mid to late 80′s it was turned into the Blue Diamond Diner, with a very original looking interior. They were open 24/7 and had everything from Hound Dog to That’s Life on the jukebox. I’m happy to see it’s still open, but it’s a real drag they removed the old-style neon Blue Diamond Diner sign and neon clock that used to be where that gawd-awful cheap-looking sign is now. Maybe it’s just a temp. We can only hope.

    Had the pleasure of Spending 5 glorious years at Glassboro State College (now Rowan University) and Angelo’s was our first stop (we literally walked across the street and just waited for them to open) after a nite of too much everything at a now defunkt bar that was right across the street called “Down on Main Street”. It didn’t last but Angelo’s steams forward. Coffee & 2 over easy w/ home fries and scrapple. Enough to cure any hangover.
