When it comes to Jersey diners is the menu, food, and atmosphere that make them so unique. There are many quality diners throughout the Garden State and we probably all have our favorites and our favorite dishes. Louis Hansel Louis Hansel



Do you know what a Monte Cristo is? It may be one of my favorite "diner" dishes. According to Striped Spatula"At its core, the Monte Cristo is made as a double or triple decker with ham, turkey, and Swiss cheese. The assembled sandwich is then dipped into an egg batter or custard and pan fried or deep fried until golden. In the Southern United States, it also sometimes includes a crunchy breading, such as crushed corn flakes."

This may just be my favorite "diner" sandwich and more often than not, this is my go-to dish at Jersey diners. If "Monte Cristo" isn't on the menu, then it's a look at their other sandwiches like burgers, liverwurst, and onion, or club sandwich.

Lovefood said "Tops Diner has been serving up delicious diner food and warm customer service since 1942, and has managed to stay relevant and stylish through the decades. Of course, it’s the food that keeps people coming back.
