Place has been there forever. Use to be good. Changed hands a few times. Not so good anymore. Service is not great either. I go to Belmont Grill in North Haledon now instead. Much better all around

Libby's is great. Centrally located, a lot of teachers go there for lunch. Knowing this, Libby's always has your food out quickly. Hot dogs, burgers, fries, everything very tasty and served very quickly. A little crowded at lunchtime but the turnover is very fast. Visit Libby's if you haven't already. Great place

Amazing Texas Wieners with a good Greek style sauce, they have Heineken or Coors light on tap and a couple of bottled beers. Or great shakes if not in the mood for a beer, ample parking on both sides of the place, friendly staff and right across from the Great Falls.

Libby's is the last of the Paterson Hot dog restaurants. It's not far from the Great Falls National Park. So after having Texas wiener you can experience history buy visiting the falls

Libby's is a classic joint that has been around for over 80 years. The food is pretty standard. They are famous for their Texas Weiner, but they also offer lots of burgers and sandwiches, along with popular daily specials. This is a really friendly neighborhood diner.

Libby's, a well-established hot dog eatery, situated on the Passaic River just above the Great Falls,has been around since the 1930s in Paterson. They make some of the best hot dogs in North Jersey- deep fried dogs covered with mustard, raw onions ans a special chili sauce. Other meals are available.

I'm not a big meat person if I do eat meat its usually fish or chicken but nothing will stop me from eating as many Libby's hot dogs as I can. Their fries are actually amazing, never too soggy and never too hard. The restaurant has a nice feel too it. It's really homey. There servers are always friendly and... More

Always very busy, but the foot long dogs are the best! Sometimes standing room only at the counter! Roast beef sandwiches are very good also.

I've lived in this area most of my life, but this was my first visit. Definitely the best Texas wieners I've tasted. Inexpensive, offers table service. Old school restaurant with friendly neighbors stopping in. Worth a visit if you want a really good Texas Weiner....and if you don't know what a Texas Weiner is, you're not from NJ.

Thank Patricia E
