After dropping off our son at a Sussex County summer camp, we stopped for lunch at this widely publicized diner in northern Morris county. The Jefferson Diner has been featured on the Food Network so frequently, the diner is using the Food Network logo on its t-shirts and even the sign out front.
The menu is extensive with all the diner standbys (try the disco fries) and many Greek specialties, including the Moussaka Guy Fieri raved about, and an excellent Greek salad. The buffalo chicken sandwich is spicier than many “hot” buffalo wings I’ve tried.
The Jefferson Diner features lots of chrome, neon and mirrors inside and out. Open til 1 am (3 am Friday and Saturday), the coffee comes fast and the service is friendly. This place is at the top of my diner Worth a Visit list.
