We stopped enroute to Delaware and were very hungry. It was a Saturday around 10:00 am and there was a line. So, given the awesome reviews we waited in the cool drizzle of the morning. Service is excellent and friendly. The place is abuzz with locals. I ordered two egg, home fries, bagel and rolled pork. The rolled pork sounded... More

My wife and I stopped in for a late breakfast on a Sunday and glad we chose this place. My wife chose a bacon and cheese omelet, while I chose the corned beef hash and 2 eggs and hash browns. Both came with rye toast that was great. We both loved our meals. Large portions and not a bad price-... More

What a gem!!! This is a family restaurant where the food is made fresh every day, where they do not use perservatives and where the staff is amazing!!! We go out of our way, passing several other well known diners, just so we can have fabulous food at Fame. No wonder it is voted the local Best Family Restaurant.

This place was infested with flies and bugs all over our food. The floors are greasy and cruddy. We moved to the counter top only to be grossed out by the sight of the kitchen with cracked eggs in the floor. The cook had a towel in his shoulder wiping his sweat from his face and neck then touching the... More

Our go to place for breakfast. They have great pancakes. Amenable to swapping dishes i.e. fruit for home fries. Hot sauce and salsa on request. Food is plentiful. They no longer serve scrapple which has limited our visits. It's a great local place to see people you know.

Love to come for breakfast and lunch. Great, homemade oatmeal (not instant), pancakes, French toast and omelettes. Also the homemade Greek yogurt is yummie, as is the Lima bean special with feta. And the service from everyone is always great. It's a family place and as a customer you are one of the family!!

Been going here for years for a quick breakfast or lunch. Usually full of local seniors the menu is what you would find in any normal NJ diner. Fast friendly service is the norm and I occasionally get a BLT or club sandwich to go. Always good daily specials, soup of the day and overall decent food keep this place... More

The Fame restaurant uses high quality more expensive cooking oil so you can notice the food taste better and no stomach upset. It is small so sometimes you may have to wait to get a seat but it is worth the wait.
