About

OUR STORY

Alexis Diner has a long and interesting history, starting with Alex Stavros. A native of Greece, Alex first came to America to pursue electrical engineering—but he soon found his passion for the restaurant industry! He built himself from the ground up, learning English as he learned his cooking skills. He and his wife, Teddi, first bought the Lackawanna Diner in Morristown, starting a process of buying, revamping, and selling diners and restaurants until they found the perfect fit in Denville! The Alexis Diner opened in 1990, premiering as a first-class diner. It has been called the best diner in NJ by the Star Ledger, and has remained successful for 27 years! We decided to renovate in 2017, and while we missed our loyal customers greatly during the few weeks we were closed, we are so pleased with the new look and updated style

Today, Alexis Diner is a prominent feature in Denville. We were voted Morris County’s Favorite Diner, and for good reason! We pride ourselves on serving the best food, with a giant menu, great customer service, and reasonable prices. We give back to the community, regularly supporting charitable causes and serving Thanksgiving Dinner each year and sending the proceeds to St. Peter’s Orphanage. While we love the classic diner atmosphere, we don’t sacrifice on cleanliness or food options at this first-class establishment—enjoy gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian, and vegan dishes alongside our classic diner fare. We hope to see you soon!
