Jersey is home to a ton of great classic diners.

One of my favorites is the Silverton Diner, I'll be honest, I still have to go for breakfast sometime but I went for lunch a few times and was blown away by their taco salad.

What's always sad though is when these classic Jersey diners close their doors for good, and say goodbye to their customers.

It's something that seems to be becoming more and more common in Jersey in the past couple of years.

A while back I told you about a very popular diner that closed up shop and was going to be turned into a dispensary.

The Marlton Diner has also closed its doors, and it appears as though that diner is also going to be turned into a dispensary.

Sadly, we'll have to add another classic Jersey diner to the list of closures.

What Popular New Jersey Diner Is Now Closed?

It was a popular local spot that'd be open for sixty years, serving up great food and maintaining that classic diner feel.

The closed diner is slated to become a self-service car wash in the near future.

Personally, I'd rather have a diner over a car wash, but according to the Cherry Hill Diner closed its doors on April 29th.
