Oradell Diner RIP

I know there's not much interest in Bergen County food on CH New Jersey, albeit mysteriously because Bergen is the largest county in the State!

However, for the select few that are interested here, the decades-old run of this old-fashioned stainless steel retro place has seemingly come to an end. For about 50 years it existed as Hagler's, and was quite a frenzied place, always packed from dawn to dusk with great homemade blue collar food. The place was sold about 7 years ago, and has had more than one owner since. It was ignominiously shut last week when the landlord issued an eviction notice to the current owner.

Hopefully, it will get a new lease on life with a new proprietor soon, although the landlord wants to sell out to Walgreen's, a prospect so far turned down by the Oradell Council.

    So sad to see the death of another north Jersey diner. I also am puzzled by the absence of many Bergen county CH foodies.....they would add so much to the conversation. Happy holidays!
