Roxbury Diner

The Roxbury Diner is one of Roxbury’s many family owned small businesses—and one you’ll find full of people at all hours! Recently renovated (they were the recipients of the 2022 Roxbury Area Chamber of Commerce Business Beautification Award), the Roxbury Diner is a lovingly maintained and run establishment that has become a mainstay and icon of Roxbury Township.

How Long Have You Been In Business And/Or Operating In Roxbury?

We have been in Roxbury since 2003 when bought the Victoria Diner and changed it over to the Roxbury Diner. We have just celebrated our 20th anniversary in town as a matter of fact!

What Do You Do? Tell Us About Your Company And What Makes It Special.

We are a diner/restaurant. We serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts. Thanks to our liquor license we also serve cocktails, beer and wine. We also do a tremendous amount of off-premise catering as well as on-premise catering in our private room which is available to book at certain times.

My family owns and operates the diner 100%. Originally it was my dad Michael, my brothers George and Teddy, and me. Sadly, my dad passed from Covid-19 2 and a 1/2 years ago so now it’s just my brothers and I.

My brothers and I have been in the restaurant business since our teens. You could always count on our mom to provide us with comforting, nurturing cooking — and that’s the warmth that we try to pass on with every meal. Our culture is known for its great hospitality and wonderful home cooked food, and that has inspired us into the restaurant business. We are very passionate about what we do. We love our community, our guests, and the daily interaction with our customers who we treat like family. We work very hard and we get great satisfaction when people express their satisfaction in our diner!

How Did You (Personally) Get Into This Line Of Work?

Like my bothers, I have worked in restaurants from a very young age both out of necessity and of course out of a love of good food. All of us worked in different restaurants all through high school so we could help our mom and dad with expenses. After I graduated from high school, I attended FDU and received a bachelors degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management. I worked for a many private corporate hotels and restaurants. But my dad always encouraged us to get together and start our business instead of working for someone else. So we finally took his advice and took the plunge, and we opened a small place in Fairfield, NJ that we ran for 13 years. We outgrew that space and had to search for a bigger place that could support our growing families. That search brought us to Roxbury in 2003. That’s when we purchased the Victoria Diner and transitioned it to the Roxbury Diner.

Why Did You Choose Roxbury? What Makes Roxbury A Great Place To Do Business?

We felt there was room for improvement and that we could do better with the business we purchased. At the time we all felt that Roxbury was going to expand, develop, and become a great place to build a business. Over the years we’ve found that to be true. The town has grown in many ways in terms of population, businesses, and opportunities. Basically we saw great potential in the location and the area, and quite honestly all our expectations have been exceeded!
