Never liked diners till I found the Tenafly Diner very close to home! Consistently good food good service! They also have organic and gluten free items to fit with the times. They are definitely a cut above your average diner. Quick easy and always good!

We went here for dinner after a long day of traveling. It is like the old train car diners with all the modern aspects. All four of us tried something different. My daughter ordered the basic burger, it was amazing. I ordered a sandwich, it...More
