Good burgers served quickly and at a good price. Great for a fast meal while you're out shopping. Good music in the background with a local newspaper always available and an inviting fireplace in each dining area during the cold months. Breakfast available until 11.

This has become a classic with my family. We visit NJ twice a year and eat here.The burgers are great, the hotdogs wonderful and the pink lemonade is refreshing.But no doubt, the best part are the free cucumbers.They are just great.Overall, it's a must see .

Several people my husband knows suggested he try The Fireplace. While shopping in Bergen County today, we decided to stop by for dinner. The name suggests a nice cozy ambience. The fireplace wasn't even operating. The place is dark. The floors are filthy. My friend clams dinner wasn't edible. The outsides were dark brown and the insides were raw. The... More

Not quite a diner, this place is one of our mainstays when heading north on Route 17 in Paramus. It has a pizza area and a grill area; the latter serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is convenient to get in and out of (at least northbound, not so sure if you are traveling south). I had a burger, my... More

I am 58 and have been enjoying the burgers, fries, steaks, and ice cream at The Fireplace for my entire life. The food is as good today as it was when I was in grade school at Ridge Ranch Elementary School in Paramus. To me, in this day of frozen burgers made offshore and consumed a year later in the...

Best place in town for burgers and fries. Good prices. Neat and clean. Good music playing, newspapers usually available, train overhead to keep kids amused and s roaring fire in those chilly days! Paramus oldie but goodie!

A New Jersey classic. I always seem to remember it as being better than it is - but it is still pretty good. Get a cheese burger, onion rings and a little paper plate full of pickles.
