Summit Diner is one of the best diners in New Jersey. In other words, when you’re interested in sitting in a swivel chair, perusing an excessively long menu while sipping a mug of coffee, and ordering a huge portion of breakfast or lunch food before sticking a knife into a ketchup bottle, it’s one of the best options on earth. There are no bad seats in the rail car space, nor are there any bad dishes on the menu, but the best way to experience this Summit, New Jersey institution is to sit at the bar, and watch as they put together your Taylor Ham, egg, and cheese sandwich in front of you.
