The Bendix Diner in Hasbrouck Heights has been around for decades. Apparently it was named the Bendix after the Bendix Corporation which had a factory nearby.
The diner is situated - literally - in the middle of Route 17.
You can see a little bit of this diner and other Jersey classics, some by the Jerry O'Mahoney Diner Company, in this video by Alan Wasenius, which includes the Bendix in the beginning of the video (including the interior):

Most of the diners in the video still exist.
Sadly, Max's in Harrison, that adorable red and white creampuff diner, is gone now, replaced by a very ugly, generic building.
Also gone is The Wildwood Diner, which was also demolished.
