      won't be in softball clothes, but could be in large groups with teenagers, so nothing fancy or expensive.

        Well, that does pose a bit of a challenge, since a few of the places I would suggest would likely not be the kind of places teenagers would like, nor would they be able to accommodate larger crowds. So, I am going to suggest that you try a diner called the Phily diner in Runnemede. I go in there sometimes when I have my car serviced at the Toyota dealer next door. They have a large menu, and I know they can deal with a larger crowd. It's your basic diner menu, but it should suffice. It has the added benefit of being close to the NJ Turnpike entrance at exit 3, which is where you will be getting off, I would assume. I'll post a link. There is also The White Horse Diner on the Black Horse Pike (just so you know the lingo, the BHP is also Route 168, and the White Horse Pike is Route 30). I haven't been, but it's supposed to be decent. No website, though. There is also a Chic-fil-a and a Five Guys Burger shop in Audobon, which should be just a few minutes from wherever you will be in Mt. Ephraim.
        Truthfully, that area isn't particularly pretty and there are not too many dining options until you get up closer to Collingswood, Cherry Hill, Haddonfield, or some of the other towns. One other thought to deal with your crowd that is a favorite with teens is PJ Whelihans, just a local pub chain that serves burgers, sandwiches, salads, etc. They do have a decent roast pork sandwich, which is a Philly specialty. Added benefit is that you can get a beer there and the atmosphere is nice. I would guesstimate that it's 15 minutes at most from wherever you will be. Let me know if you have any more questions.
