Jersey might as well be known as the Land of Diners, considering how many top-notch spots dot the state. Of all of them, Tops Diner is a statewide legend with its shiny retro steel exterior calling in eaters like a beacon seven days a week. Serving Tri-State residents since 1972, Tops Diner boasts an enormously talented kitchen staff—the food here is fresh, hot and on point. Hits from the massive menu include a selection of excellent eggs Benedict, an indulgent meatloaf dowsed in mushroom gravy and an aptly named Fatty Melt: a hamburger snuggled between two grilled cheese sandwich “buns” and crowned with pickles and bacon.
