We asked our New Jersey Plymouth Rock Assurance Facebook fans: “What are your favorite NJ diners?”
The response was incredible! In any other state, this would be a two-second conversation. Not here. This is serious business.
Garden Staters know a thing or two about diners. After all, with more than 600 in New Jersey, we’re the diner capital of the world.
As one Facebook commenter put it: “Growing up in Jersey I thought diners were everywhere. When I moved around I discovered other states did not have diners! What a shock that those states were missing out!”
