Probably have been eating here for 40 years and have only ordered cheeseburgers, fries and the Texas Chile Sauce. Probably my favorite place for burgers fast food style. Best Birch Beer around Bergen County IMO. If you're looking for gourmet food keep driving!

Great food, good prices, casual atmosphere. No complaints. It's a great place for burgers, hot dogs, pizza, fried chicken, etc. Order at the counter and take your food to a table. Kinda odd setup, with pizza and fried chicken in different areas, but not really an issue.

I'm sorry but I don't know how anyone can eat here. Should of took a hint from the older gentleman who ordered his burger and asked for it not to be like a hockey puck. Looks like a nice place from the outside, 3 areas to choose from. We had a grilled chicken sandwich and a cheesesteak. The chicken was... More

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.
