The Ewing NJ Diner Has Reopened, Review and AMAZING SPAGHETTI SAUCE LIKE TONY'S in AC!!!

We live near the Ewing Diner, which is on Parkway Ave in Ewing, NJ, and check a map program for more info than that. I would exit 95 at exit 2, head S (which is a right) on Bear Tavern 579, go past the Trenton Airport, make a L at the light, follow the road around as it bears right, continue straight thru the light, which is Scotch Road (do not be confused by the fact that Scotch Rd is also exit 3 off 95), go straight, and it's on your right within a half mile or so and past another light.

OK. It reopened recently to huge crowds, after being torn down and rebuilt from scratch. It's very very nice. The food is good, portions are large etc etc etc.

BUT THE CRAZY THING IS THEIR SPAGHETTI SAUCE IS JUST LIKE TONY'S BALTIMORE GRILL in AC. If you have ever been to Tony's (Iowa & Atlantic; only FTs call the place "the Baltimore Grill; I'm just including it for clarity) and had their plain red sauce (or with meatballs or sausage, but it's not the red clam sauce) you will know how there is nothing like it. (Well, only if you love it as I do, and have been eating it since a bowl cost $2.00. It's up to about 7.00 now.) Anyway, I used to go to the Ewing Diner 6 years ago, but apparently I never had their red sauce. Tonight I had chicken parm with a side (you should excuse the expression) of spaghetti, and it was Tony's sauce. I asked the owner and he said there was no relation; he got interested and said he'd go try it. Said this was his own recipe.

Well, now, if they would only get Tony's original thin long loaves of scrumptious Italian bread, from the old days, I would be able to save a 100 mile drive (one-way).

So this was a good find.

Other things: there were some amazing looking pies and cakes in the case, people were friendly, and, oh, did I mention that their sauce is JUST LIKE TONY'S???
