FRAMINGHAM (WBZ-AM) -- Long lines of faithful customers waited to get in to the reopening of the J&M Diner on Route 9 Monday morning, several months after the original location burned down.
"The food is incredible, the atmosphere is great, and the best part of it all is the people," one man told WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Kim Tunnicliffe. "It's always a smile, always a happy greeting. It's just like sitting in your kitchen and having breakfast yourself."
Customers returned to wish owner Karen Fiore well in the new location.
The diner burned down in March along with 9 other businesses in the Old Path Village Plaza.
Fiore said there was never a question that the diner would be rebuilt after the devastating fire--and now, her two daughters are working by her side.
"There's nothing else that we wanted to do," she said, adding that the grand opening Monday morning was "emotional, exciting, scary."
12-year-old Naija said she just had to be here for the reopening.
"They're really nice and they give good food," she said.
