ISO Casual Lunch in Madison NJ

I'm looking for a casual, inexpensive place for lunch (on a Saturday) with my sister and 11-year-old nephew. Thanks.

  1. 2 suggestions...within 1/8 block of one another, both perfect for your sis and nephew, and both so casual that they don't feel the need to have a website (GRR):

    Nicky's Firehouse (pizza/Italian food)
    Central Ave

    David's Rumba Cafe (search for it on this board for details) for Latin food; everything from burritos to plantains to firecracker calamari
    6 Elmer St
    (973) 520-8160

    Parking is available on the street or in the muni lot right behind Firehouse, and when you park in that lot, Rumba Cafe is across Elmer St.

    1. Additional Suggestions:

      Poor Herbies
      13 Waverly Place
      Madison NJ

      Serves up good burgers.

      54 Main (formally main streets cafe) used to be very good for a casual meal but I have not been there since it was renovated.
