Joe Morozin Sr. opened his very first eatery when he was sixteen years old. The road was paved with hard work, dedication and perseverance. It led from the GI Inn to White Way to the Torresdale Diner to The Dining Car. The Torresdale Diner was originally located at 8828 Frankford Avenue in Philadelphia from 1960 to 1980. In 1979 its name changed to The Dining Car. The new Dining Car was constructed on-site in New Jersey and trucked to its current location at 8826 Frankford Avenue in 1980. Not wanting to interrupt service to its customers, both diners were actually operating at the same time for a short while. Some customers even picked up there coffee cups from the old diner and walked over to the new diner to sit and finish up there. Once all of the patrons were served, the oldac diner was closed. Since that time, the new diner has been operating 24 hours, 7 days a week. Not only was the building new, the diner's approach to food was also. Taking The Dining Car from convenience restaurant to destination restaurant offering a full array of American/Continental cuisine. The facility also offers a full service bakery.
