Having grown up in this area, and frequented this eating establishment, it remains consistently one of the best "burger joint's" around. Food is simple and good. Service is fast and friendly. What more would you want for a quick lunch?

This establishment has been around for a while. When you taste the food you will know why. You can taste the freshness in the beef, and the burgers come hot off the grill! The prices are reasonable and it is both family friendly and a fun environment to hang out and enjoy the company of a friend or for a... More

The burgers are excellent and breakfast is becoming quite popular. The crowds can appear daunting at times, but the staff move things along quickly. If you are from the area (or were at one time), it is a fixture where folks often meet friends.

I've been waiting to try this place for so long as I always drive past it. Finally I took my two girls there. First, it is a huge place and there are a lot of people at 11:30 on a Saturday morning. You can get pizza in one area, burgers and sandwiches in another area, and breakfast food in a... More

Grew up in the vicinity, always make it a point to stop in whenever I am in the area. They may have expanded the menu to include pizza, breakfast & ice cream, but I come for the cheeseburgers. Was not disappointed & the sweet potato fries were perfection! First time for my companion he loved the fries but was disappointed... More

The Fireplace is our go to place to grab a bite to eat when we are passing through the area. Cheeseburgers are the standard but have had a good Cod Sandwich and a huge Spicy Chicken Sandwich. An order of fries overflows the container. Not a trendy place but a step back to simpler times. You will not be disappointed.

We started going to the Fireplace when we lived in Glen Rock during the 1980's. It was a favorite place for both our kids, and it doesn't seem to have changed much over the years. There are several stations where you can order the food on offer -- chicken, burgers, pizza. You pay and get a beeper, find a table,... 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
