Brings back memories

My family has been visiting The Fireplace since before I was born. It's changed and grown throughout the years but I always love coming back, it's so homey and cozy and it's kept it's charm all this time. They keep things simple and don't do gimmicks. If you and your family want a good burger, or... read more

This restaurant has tasty hamburgers. It's very rustic inside the restaurant. The staff is very friendly and polite.

They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and pizza. Apparently each at a different counter, you place your order and then find a table. They give you a beeper which goes off when your food is ready. The system works and the decor is comfortable and attractive. We ordered poached eggs which can be hard to get right, but these were perfectly... More

This place is great if you are looking for a place to eat at a reasonable price. Have been here several times and never disappointed. Forget McDonald's for burgers try theirs. Don't pass this one by without giving it a try.

They have everything here from eggs to steak sandwiches. Great for hot dogs, burgers or a quick meal.

Local owned and a student favorite for decades. All fast food plus good breakfasts. Strong on sentiment and great value for food. Worst thing they could do is try to update

The Fireplace opened nearly sixty years ago, and it has been a mainstay on Route 17 North in Paramus ever since. It's easy to get to from both sides of 17. Most of the diners look like locals, although it might attract some people passing through. They try to give off a 50's-early 60s vibe, but it isn't overdone. There... More

Wonderful selection of burgers and everyone is great. Between my son and I, over the past few visits, we tried every flavor of burger on the menu and all of them were very good. We enjoyed all of them. A side dish of onion rings makes a perfect match with the burger. This is a down to earth old fashioned... More

We ate lunch here after driving around my husband's hometown of Midland Park, NJ. He had the Jersey burger with Taylor ham and I had a grilled cheese. He had the onion rings and I loved the cole slaw which they make on the dry side which is the way I like it. I really like coming here since it... More

It's as good as it was back in the 60's! The best hamburgers in town! Casual atmosphere. Great for lunch or bring the kids for dinner. Very cool.
