Perhaps one of the worst diners in NJ.

My wife and I used to frequent Lenape Grill when it first opened. It's close to our house, breakfast is a hard meal to screw up, and the food was always decent. The place was usually fairly crowded on weekend nights.

Over the past year or so, we noticed the crowds have disappeared.

IMO - diners need a consistent crowd so the food turns over regularly. If not, they try to stretch the life expectancies of their food to generate a profit. Net result is that the food served becomes questionable.

We went for dinner early 2011 on a Saturday night at around 5:30PM, and we were the only people eating in the whole diner. Right around the time we were asking for our check, another couple showed up. Thank God. I thought maybe the place had been quarantined.

The food and service that night was absolutely horrible. The High School kids that waiter there seemed 1/2 drunk and thought they were in the middle of a keg party. Can't blame them, they had nothing better to do as there were no people to be served.

The management was rude and arrogant, as we finally realized was always the case. I mean come on, this is a diner, not some fancy well-respected restaurant.

Listen, if you're looking for a great meal at about the same price plus a few bucks, head over to Portobello's across the street.

If you're looking for diner food, I would recommend the Burger King in front of the Shop-Rite before I would go to the Lenape Grill again.
