Thank you too all of our loyal customers!

1 Dec

The Jersey Boys Diner family would like to thank all of its loyal customers over the last few years. It was not an easy decision to cease operation in Imperial Beach, but it is the best decision for our family at this time. We appreciate all of your business and wish you a wonderful 2014! Cheers!

Jersey Boys Diner Participates in FASD Awareness Month

12 Sep

You may be seeing a special kind of coaster beneath your drink during the month of September at Jersey Boys Diner. That’s because JBD is one of nearly a dozen local establishments urging pregnant women to avoid alcohol during pregnancy as part of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Awareness Month. “I’m so blessed to have a healthy child and if I can help someone else’s chances of also having a healthy child by encouraging my customers to avoid alcohol during pregnancy, then it’s the least I can do,” said restaurant owner, Gregg Lalka, during an interview with the local media about his participation in the awareness campaign (pictured above) .

According to the National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (NOFAS), as many as 1 in 100 babies are affected by the preventable disorder, almost the same rate as autism. The coaster  (pictured right) provides facts about the harmful effects of alcohol during pregnancy.

FASD Awareness Month has been recognized during the ninth month of the year (September) as a reminder for women to abstain from drinking alcohol during the nine months of pregnancy. Read more about FASD and JBD’s participation in the awareness campaign by clicking here.

Bye-bye Sr. Tortuga!

10 Mar

Jersey Boys Diner and The Lalka Family would like to thank Jose “Senor Tortuga” Perez for his dedicated service to the restaurant since we opened nearly 2 years ago. Jose may not have been the fastest server, earning himself the nickname of “Sr. Tortuga”, but Jose offered excellent service. We wish Jose and his family the best in the future.

While today is Jose’s last day, there are plenty of other great servers to serve up $10 All You Can Drink Mimosas with the purchase of a meal: all day, everyday for a limited time.

Yo, We Got A Situation Here, A New Situation Challenge Champion, That Is!

2 Dec

On Tuesday November 29th, 2011, Phil “The Outsider” Furden put our Situation Food Challenge to shame, becoming only the second person to face and beat the stomach stretching feat. Furden, of Fallbrook, not only won, but he crushed the current Situation Challenge champion’s time by finishing it in just 50 minutes! Raymond Filippi previously held the title when he became the first person in JBD history to finish the meal back on October 1st.

If you’re unfamiliar with Jersey Boys Diner’s Situation Challenge, the meal is a staggering 24-egg cheese-stuffed omelet filled with all of our breakfast meats packed inside. If that’s not enough, it’s served on a giant pizza pan with two breakfast hot dogs and two pounds of hashbrowns.

Furden not only inhaled every last crumb, but he then added a milkshake to settle his sweet tooth after being crowned champion. For completing the challenge, Furden’s picture will be posted on the “Boardwalk of Fame” and he’ll receive discounts off future meals at JBD. Jersey Boys Diner also paid for his $25 feast and gave Furden a JBD t-shirt. Who will take the title from Furden? It’s anyone’s guess…Congrats Phil!
