My son-in-law took me to the Fireplace for my 1st time. I'm glad he did. I had a fish sandwich and a cheeseburger. Both were very good. We also have the onion rings. They were good also. There is a real nice sidebar with plenty of pickles, onions, and relish. I will be making regular visits from now on.

Short story - avoid - Long story - My wife and I went for lunch today. My wife had a bacon cheeseburger which she said was too dry and tasteless. She had fries with her meal which were bland and flavorless. I got a double bacon cheeseburger which was under cooked. The bun was lackluster and sagging, I got onion... More

My dad and I have been trying different hot dog places my week off from school. I ordered the cheesy dog and cheesy fries with birch beer. The hot dog was ok. The cheese was just a regular piece of cheese laid on top. Not even mealted. The fries were warm. Not hot and the birch beer was kinda watery.... More

Stopped here this morning because all other diners were packed. Conveniently located off Route 17 with ample parking and tons of space inside. The service was excellent since you basically serve yourself. After placing your order you get a buzzer that lights up when your order is ready. Schlep it back to your table, fill your coffee cups at the... More

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

A very good no frills place for burgers, juicy roast beef sandwiches, etc. Great for families with young kids.

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
