When you're down the shore, Dino's has been a fixture just off of Routes 9 and 50 in Ocean View for almost 45 years.
Meadows Diner, Blackwood
The Meadows Diner on Route 168 in Blackwood has been a staple in the area for decades, even back when it was the Blackwood Diner. The only thing that gets better marks than their food is their service.
Angelo's Diner, Glassboro
In the heart of Glassboro is Angelo's. A unique, old-school diner with a great neon sign. And they have scrapple on the menu.
JJ's Diner, Egg Harbor Township
This diner at the old Cardiff Circle in Egg Harbor Township has seen a bunch of names over the years. Most recently, it's JJ's and it's getting high reviews online. Note that JJ's closes at 4, so stop by for breakfast or lunch.
Silver Diner, Cherry Hill
Across from the Cherry Hill Mall is the Silver Diner. This isn't your typical diner -- this is food that has been elevated. On their menu are things like omelets with oaxaca black bean salsa, an organic bison pesto burger, and Carolina catfish and succotash.
Salem Oak Diner, Salem
Right on Broadway in Salem is the Salem Oak Diner, named after the city's famous tree. This is a perfect example of a small, local eatery where everyone knows your name -- and the sign on the roof is pretty cool, too.
Silver Coin, Hammonton
At the crossroads of South Jersey, Routes 30, 54, and 206, for 40 years sits the Silver Coin Diner. Everything is on the menu here from mimosas to a "Whole Lotta Meat" omelette.
Stratford Diner, Stratford
The Stratford Diner, right on the White Horse Pike, is one of those places that's always been there. Big menu, big portions.
Harley Dawn, Folsom
Out in the Penny Pot section of Folsom (not too far from Hammonton) is the Harley Dawn. This was a little place back in the day; it was demolished and they rebuilt a very modern restaurant. The food here is great and when blueberries are in season, they're all over the menu at Harley Dawn.
Point 40 Diner, Monroeville
If you're crossing South Jersey on Route 40, the Point 40 Diner is located right on the Pole Tavern Circle at Route 77. The Point 40 was recently named the best diner in Salem County.
Paulsboro Diner, Paulsboro
You don't need a ton of chrome and neon to win the hearts of locals. As one person said, "Food is tasty and prepared with love. Fair prices, clean, and cozy. If you like small, simple, family owned places you'll enjoy it here."
Liberty Diner, Clayton
Should you find yourself in Gloucester County, swing by the Liberty Diner in Clayton, right on Delsea Drive. You'll find the standard diner fare here -- and creamed chipped beef.
Piston Diner, Westville
From scrapple bites to penne with shrimp in vodka sauce, this is a great local diner with a local feel.
Little Goat Diner, Pleasantville
