The busy town of Irvington isn’t often thought of as a culinary destination, and its streets are lined with casual restaurants that feed countless people when they get off work. At first glance, Don’s Diner looks like one of them. It resembles so many other Jersey diners, right down to the retro exterior that makes you feel like you’re back in the 1950s. But any idea that this might be a typical diner goes out the window when you step inside and smell the luscious Southern cooking on offer. Don’s Diner always has a reasonably-priced menu available, but every Monday through Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., you can take advantage of the best deal in Irvington – the only Southern buffet in New Jersey, with all-you-can-eat soul food delights.
