On this day-after-Thanksgiving, we are grateful of course for friendship, but also that classic diners like the Bayway in Linden are still around and vibrant. (We’re of course also thankful for GPS devices without which, all of our journeys would be far more difficult). But at the Bayway, we felt just at home, provided home meant out of the lyrics of a classic Springsteen song. The Bayway, which we understand was closed for a short time a few years back, is stronger than ever with a some picnic tables to supplement the counter seating during warmer months. Otherwise, there are just the few spots to chow down in the classic, intimate railcar where the griddle and frying cats are just on the other side of the counter. Behind the counter, the waitress and chef weren’t swamped on the Friday morning, likely because of the holiday but we imagine any normal day, it must be jam packed with local workers and residents coming in for a quick bite - we always love when the staff seems to know the other customers and that was no exception today - we were probably the only non-regulars they saw all day. They also offer extensive catering and to-go menus. They brag about their hotdogs for a good reason and the French toast (maybe a touch too moist) was still great with a few pieces of sausage on the side. If you can get a spot at the counter, head over to Johnny’s Bayway!
