EAST NEWARK (PIX11)-- Tops Diner has been named the most famous restaurant in New Jersey.

It's a family run business and it uses locally grown products.

Dan visited the diner and asked customers why they love it so much and while he was there found a couple celebrating their 26 years of marriage.

Thrillist compiled the list of the most famous restaurants in the U.S. To qualify for this selection, a venue had to be around for more than 30 years (all businesses since at least 1980) and still be a favorite.
