New Jersey's Tops named best diner in America

- In a state known for its diners, one tops them all. In its list of best diners, Time Out Magazine named Tops Diner in East Newark, New Jersey, not only the best in the state but the best in the country.

Tops has been around since the 1920s and not much has changed except the shiny exterior and a few neon lights. Owner Van Golemis says they are known for their great burgers, the lobster mac and cheese, and the meatloaf.

Other tristate diners made the list: Tom's Restaurant in Brooklyn and the Waverly in Manhattan.
