Once upon a time if you were hungry after midnight, it wasn't hard to find a nice 24/7 diner. They were especially great for breakfast or a cheeseburger deluxe after a night of hitting the clubs.

Unfortunately, with the reduced workforce being what it is in New Jersey, many diners had to curtail their hours due to lack of help. The expansion of overnight convenience stores hasn't helped either.

But if you're still in the mood for an after-hours meal from a great New Jersey diner, here's 15 across the state that are still open 24/7. Buono appetito!
