New Jersey is known as “the diner capital of the world.” A truly classic American "diner" is a prefabricated restaurant, with the exterior partly or wholly stainless steel, and brought to the site to be assembled.

Diners of New Jersey: The Bendix Diner in Hasbrouck Heights

Bendix Diner, Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey

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): 


Check out his YouTube Channel.

Most of the diners in the video still exist.

Sadly, Max's in Harrison, that adorable red and white cream puff diner, is gone now, replaced by a very ugly, generic building. 

Also gone is The Wildwood Diner, which was also demolished.

Diners of New Jersey - Jersey Shore Edition

Diner

New Jersey is considered the diner capital of the world. 

 

There are hundreds of diners in the state, and they are an integral part of the New Jersey dining experience. 

 

Many are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

 

The diner in the top photo is the Marvis Diner in Wildwood, New Jersey. 

 
This week I am posting photos of diners I have visited located near or at the Jersey shore. 


Next is the Princess Maria Diner in Wall Township:

In  the Wildwoods, many of the buildings are in the Doo-Wop Style, or Googie Architecture,  

 

The top photo of the Marvis Diner is an example of that.

There is also the Doo Wop Diner on the Wildwood boardwalk:
