Clark White Diamond serving up sliders since 1947
When you think sliders, the first name that comes to your mind may be White Castle. What you may not know is that in New Jersey independent slider joints are alive and well.
The Clark White Diamond is one such place. Without the corporate homogenized feel of a White Castle, the Clark White Diamond feels more like a local diner.
Long time customer Bill Schaffer has been going to the White Diamond since 1948. ”it’s like home. I used to walk here from the grammar school.” “There was no houses so we walked through the woods. Hamburgers were 2 for a quarter. We would walk over here for lunch.” Schaffer likes the White Diamond’s menu because it’s “consistent and it’s good”
Schaffer recalls that Jimmy Cox came to New Jersey from North Carolina. “He came up here and built four or five white diamonds and he would take all the boys from North Carolina that were borderline bad boys. He would give them a job. He would give them a place to live. Great man did a lot of good. They were very good people. Then the Collins family took over and they have been here a long time”
