Overall, this is a great place for a quick bite. But that steak sandwich, which is made with skirt steak is worth the trip every time !!!!

Great service, food was delicious, and order was completed in a timely matter. I love the look of the place and how it makes you feel like you're at a mess hall or at camp. Pretty cool.

This is one of the few Jersey grills still around in New Jersey. Gone are places like the Planation Grill and Anthony Wayne on Rt 46. This dual brick walled dining room establishment is on Rt 17N and provides a classic grill burger/chicken/hot dog dining experience. It's tasty, quick and reasonably priced. If you never have visited this fine eatery,... More

If it's frills and fancy you want, this is not the place for you. This is a great, old fashioned burger place with really, very good food for a good price. The selection is huge and varied from a burger to pizza to chicken. This is also THE place where the Jersey Burger (burger, Taylor Ham & cheese) was introduced... More

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 .
