  1. Kinchley's in Ramsey is close to Rt. 17. Good thin crust pizza.
    Sonny & Tony's in Mahwah ( about 1/2 mile off Rt. 17) has great pasta fagiola and escarole & bean soups.
    The rest is all chains and diners.

    1. You might consider Legal Sea Food in Paramus.

          You consider Mt. Fuji a "quick meal"?

            this place is the saddest excuse for a japenese steakhouse i've even been to...downright AWFUL food. Skip!

              Havn't been there for a while....Why did you have a bad experience there recently?

                I think i blanked the experience out of my mind (but i found my old post!! ick...) this is why i hated it:

          2. Assuming you are coming from Western New Jersey.....The Royal Warsaw in Elmwood Park, on River Road is just a minute off Route 80.....easy off and back onto Route 80

            If you are in the mood for pizza, both Lodi Pizza and Pizzatown are easy detours on Route 46.

            1. I know you're heading West on 80, otherwise you would be taking 287 to the Thruway...

              Someone already mentioned the Garden State Plaza and a chain resto, but in the same mall is Napa Valley Grille, an excellent and reasonable lunch menu.

              Oceano's is just off 4 west, 1/4 mile from 17. Very good.

              It needs a U Turn on 17, But Bistro 55 is a good choice as well.

              Further north, there's a good pub-style lunch at Brady's at the Station, Ramsey. Just a 1/2 mile off the Lake St exit.

                  What town is Bistro 55 in? I've never heard of it - sounds interesting.

                        Yeah, I guess so. It seems that RP/Maywood/Lodi all meet in that spot! Lol.
