Everyone knows that New Jersey is the diner capital of the world. Bergen County alone has 30+ diners! We take our diners seriously in Bergen and typically have that one favorite spot to go for all-day breakfast, a late night tuna melt or cheeseburger, an informal business meeting, Sunday brunch, family gatherings or other diner attractions. Of course, the incredibly long and moderately-priced menu, friendly service and, seemingly limitless hours of operation are important too.

New Jersey's Best Diners

NJ.com food critic Peter Genovese has recently released his 2017 picks for single best diner for each of New Jersey's 21 counties. New Jersey diners were judged on quality of the food, atmosphere, and service. According to Genovese and his team of judges, the Chit Chat Diner in Hackensack is Bergen County's best diner. Located minutes from Routes 4, 46,17 and 80 at 516 Essex Street in Hackensack, The Chit-Chat Diner first opened in 2009. Renovation since then has yielded a classic American diner in an upscale setting.
