Locations Guy Fieri visits in the USA - Places to eat comfort home-style, healthy, gourmet & fast food meals!


Ideally named after the beach city you'll find it in, it's a perfect pit stop to get the right food at the right price - every time. Guy visits this place quite often and personally recommends their Shrimp and Salmon Cakes, Reuben, Spring Rolls and much more. Come by and eat something truly amazing and worth the visit. The mix of menu items here is truly a mess, a perfect mess that is. You'll recognize the vast amount of Classic American style eats but also a international flavor such as Pho thrown in to the mix. We also love the kid friendly options that even our kids enjoy. We always believe that breakfast is the best meal of the day and this place offers some of the best which are offered all-day-long. Described by some as a typical New Jersey-style diner, as we've been to some of those we'd have to agree. The Pasta dishes are great and the Burgers you can never go wrong with. In addition, they have adapted their menu with Vegan and Vegetarian style options too. The dessert.. oh the amazing desserts! All made from scratch and enough to be a meal on their own as they are huge, filling and delicious. We're always sure to leave with a thick hand-scooped milkshake on the way home - this will truly bring you back to your childhood. Great character and a pleasant atmosphere at the one and only, Santa Cruz Diner.
