Diner Round Up – The Morristown Diner

photo 1(1)

Firstly, I want to preface that I went to this diner in February, which would explain the snow coming down in full force. Now for the review…

I went to Morristown diner while I was in Morristown. The diner is in a great location in downtown Morristown where there are lots of stores, restaurants, night life, museums and more. I went on a day while it was snowing, so I didn’t stay too long in the area…but I’m glad I at least got to check out the diner while I was there.

When you walk in they have a cute, classic NJ diner counter which gave me the warm fuzzies.

I posted on Facebook when I was there and got a mixed response from people who have been there. I personally loved it.

Their menu has a lot to choose from, including Greek specialties, fat sandwiches and Mexican food. I decided on getting a chicken fajita because I was hungry and it sounded like a lot of food. Oh boy…was it!

photo 3

I also want to say, and this is a bold statement, but this might have been one of the best fajitas I have ever had. I was literally licking my plate it was so good.

Make sure you get dessert on your way out. It looked delicious! They even had Minion cupcakes…

“We love that we are kicking off 2015 First Fridays with Saint Clare’s Health System as our sponsor for February Go Red,” said Boonton Main Street Executive Director, Chris Manzella. “We are honored that we have such a pillar of the community as our sponsor, which was recently recognized with an “A” grade by The Leapfrog Group for the sixth consecutive time for patient safety.”

First Friday Late Nights are a monthly program put on by Boonton Main Street, Inc. to provide retailers and the community a venue to convene to share in the joy of all that the Boonton Main Street district has to offer. It continues the year long sentiment of Shop Small that has become the mantra of downtown shopping districts across the US.
