Decent Lunch in South Hackensack?

I'm working in South Hacksensack, NJ now. Does anyone know of any good lunch spots in the area that are good? Yelp isn't helping me! It may be that this area is devoid of anything reasonable, though. I hope not!

  1. What are your likes, restrictions and budget?

    1. 101 Pub on Queen Anne Rd in Bogota is pretty good for a burger or sandwich, and Luka's on Main in Ridgefield Park is very good. For Greek the new Sparta on Main in Ridgefield Park is decent.

      There's no ambiance, but Pollo Tropical in Little Ferry on 46 has some damn good Caribbean BBQ chicken dishes.

      1. When I used to work down that way we always had great lunches at:

        La Bella Italia, 582 Huyler St - kinda right next to the Post Office
        Teggiano's, 310 Huyler Street
        Tony G's ,290 Huyler Street
        I haven't been, but, heard good things about Presto's Pizza at 375 Rt 46 East, So. Hackensack

        Tony G's
        290 Huyler St, South Hackensack, NJ 07606

        310 Huyler St, South Hackensack, NJ 07606

        La Bella Italia
        582 Huyler St, South Hackensack, NJ 07606

        1. I recall a good Thai place on main street in hackensack called Wondees, but i haven't been there in a while, so check to make sure they are open.

          Wondee Cafe
          296 Main St, Hackensack, NJ 07601

          1. Pollo Mario (or Mario's Pollo?) - downtown hackensack by the courthouse- does some amazing columbian chicken/beans/chiccarrone. Great prices as well

            I've heard good things about the Indian restaurant further down main, though I have yet to sample their wares.

            Green Papaya in Riveredge can be decent, esp. their tofu dishes

            Green Papaya
            110 Kinderkamack Rd, River Edge, NJ 07661

            Pollos Mario
            63 Main St, Hackensack, NJ 07601
