Always a good spot for a quick lunch, dinner, or ice cream. We always get cheese fries and onion rings. Some good staples here are burgers, triple decker sandwiches, grilled cheese (with ham or taylor ham), and of course their homemade, delicious ice cream. Decent prices for the food/ice cream.

I've been here before to pick up ice cream. This was the first time sitting at a table. I was a big Soprano's fan and have to admit it was cool reliving and discussing the scenes shot here for the last season. We were hoping the food would be even better. My order was simple, just a cheeseburger and fries.... More

Busy on weekends but go for lunch during the week. Pretty standard lunch menu but the burgers are just the right balance of; juicy flavor and freshness. Enjoy!

An old line family ice cream parlor in decor. Top quality ice cream and an abundance of young caring servers. This place is a winner!!!

As a Soprano's fan I had to make the commute once when I was traveling from the city to Albany. It is not far from Newark airport, just a bit to the north east. The restaurant is actually kind of like an old school candy and malt shop. Lot's of cakes and ice creams at the front with a smaller... More

Good time for all always! Food is always as expected and that's a good thing, no surprises. Ice cream is always much better here for some reason, probably the way it's made. Not that all air and fluff ice cream; it's dense, creamy and full of flavor. Service is always good. The place is always clean and fun for all.... More

Visited Holstens as part of the Sopranos Tour. Was amazing to visit this famous restaurant and taste those famous onion rings! We only had 20 mins so we had a sandwich and an ice cream and bought some handmade chocolates before heading back on the tour. Great for any Sopranos fan

Holsten's has an air of cool about it...that puts you right into the last ever episode of the Sopranos. Tony and his family were having dinner here in the last scene. I experienced again the anxiety I felt for them as tension was building and we were meant to expect an assassination attempt or the like and it was really... More

Delicious ice cream, sundaes, desserts, burgers etc., not so good. Very good hand made chocolates and large variety of other candies, including candy cigarettes that I have not seen in years. Love sitting up to the counter with my grandchildren for ice cream sundaes, etc.,

If you like good old fashioned homemade ice cream then one of the best in North Jersey is Hosten's without a doubt. A great range of flavors and they pack you a pint or a quart with you watching. Surprise, they sell food too. Hamburgers are good and get an order of cheese fries. Their grilled cheese and tomato to... More
