Large portions of home-style comfort food served 24 hours alongside an in-house bakery & market. "The “new” Dining Car was constructed on-site in New Jersey and trucked to its current location at 8826 Frankford Avenue in 1980. Not wanting to interrupt service to its customers, both diners were actually operating at the same time for a short while. Some customers even picked up there coffee cups from the old diner and walked over to the new diner to sit and finish up there. Once all of the patrons were served, the “old” diner was closed." - The Dining Car
