Tick Tock Diner

Stephanie Davies

Located on Route 3 in Clifton, NJ is an eating establishment known as the Tick Tock Diner. Built in 1948, the diner boasts bright neon lights and a shiny mirrored exterior, as well as a huge clock with the slogan “Eat Heavy.”

Upon further research on the popular eatery, I found it quite interesting just how many people are serious dedicated customers. Many families return to the diner on a weekly or even daily basis, religiously. There are even some so dedicated that they can recall when the diner first opened its doors and have been supporting the business ever since.

The diner, which is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year, has no locks on the doors. Therefore, this cements the idea that this is a legitimate diner in all aspects—as most diners were originally 24 hour restaurants.
