There's nothing quite like a real New Jersey Diner.

The vinyl booths, massive menus, and unique charm are something you'll only get from a true Jersey Diner.

Personally, I'm a big fan of the Silverton Diner.

They have the best taco salad I've had in Jersey, which is a strange diner option I know, but it's really delicious.

Of course, Jersey is home to legendary diners like Tops Diner in Newark which has won numerous recognitions as one of the best in the country.

However, Jersey's most remote diner which is well off the beaten path is loved by locals, and odds are it's a place you've never heard of.

Oh, it's also one of the best 50s-style diners in the state, so you'll be getting a serious retro experience when you go in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

What NJ Diner Is One Of The Most Remote In The State?

When I say remote, I mean it.

This diner is located in one of the least densely populated counties in the entire state with a population of just over 65,000 people.

For reference, the population of Toms River alone is over 90,000 people.

So yeah, this place is pretty remote.

You'll be able to enjoy huge fluffy pancakes, homemade waffles, patty melts, burgers, french onion soup and so much more when you wing by this true hidden gem.

According to Only In Your State, the Salem Oak Diner is not only the best 50s-themed diner in the state but also one of the state's best-hidden gems.

Located at 113 W. Broadway in Salem, it may be well worth the drive next time you're looking for a true classic NJ diner.
