The Fireplace has been around since 1956 and not much has changed. The place is a throwback to days gone by and people who frequent the spot like it just that way. Located on busy Route 17 in Paramus--you'll have to look for it so you don't pass the driveway.
Nothing fancy here. Simple food, cooked to your order and promptly served. You place your order at a long counter up front and wait for it to be served on a tray. Find a seat in one of the large dining rooms and you're set. Families can eat here and not break their wallets.
Favorites include cheese burgers, sliced steak sandwiches, Philly cheese steaks, roast book or chicken salad sandwiches, french fries & onion rings. I like their milkshakes which are thick and creamy. Fireplace also has pizza and chicken and all food is available for take-out.
Fireplace serves breakfast, lunch and dinner (opens at 6:30 in the AM).
