It is an old Fire House from the horse drawn days,of course it has been spruced up but only enough to accommodate the dinners and the bar patrons.It is just about the friendliest place around,certainly in that proximity to the Bergen County court house which gives the place the varied clientele that makes for very interesting palaver.

This is a staple in Hackensack. Very busy lunch crowd. Happy Hour crowd is a mixed bag! Depending on the night you go, dinner could run from crowded to non existent. Food is generally good. Soups and pizza are awesome !!!

One of the worst burgers I've ever had. McD or Wendy's would have been better. Dry, tasteless, like eating the sole of a shoe. No lettuce, no tomato. Frozen fries. Yuck. Avoid!

Had a delicious burger for lunch here. Perfectly cooked, with crunchy delicious french fries and a tangy crisp pickle! What could be better? Not too crowded, but it was a Friday lunch and we enjoyed talking while we ate. Good service, great food!
