On a budget in Bergen - help!

What are your favorite inexpensive (entrees under $20) restaurants in Bergen County? We are on a budget - we have young kids and need to hire a sitter for "date night," so my husband and I are looking for some new ideas that don't cost a ton.

What's your favorite "joint" to eat at? Favorite hole-in-the-wall? Would prefer places with some vegetarian options (husband eats no beef or poultry, will eat fish) and not Asian/Indian - mediterranean is okay. Any tapas places? French bistros that don't cost a fortune? As an example, we love Janice a Bistro in Ho Ho Kus, but it's too $$ for us right now. Pubs are fine, as long as there's more than burgers on the menu. Love BYO places. Thanks!!

  1. PJ Finnegan's in Westwood, one of the better Irish Pubs in Bergen. Comfortable, nice food, some excellent daily specials. Very reasonable.

      thanks! they got a nice write-up in 201 magazine recently. do you think they have some good vegetarian options?

        Just salads. I guess they could make you a veggie plate. Best veg options are at Asian places, but you nixed those. And there's always Pasta marinara at a pizza joint...
