The Crossroads Eatery is in my opinion, by far one of the most nostalgic places to eat in north Jersey – it has been a landmark for as long as I can remember. Located in the Mountain View section of Wayne, NJ, it's situated directly across from the Mountain View train station. For you movie buffs, a scene from the 1996 movie City Hall starring Al Pacino and John Cusack was filmed here.
On this particular day, I took my grandson for a burger and we sat on a bench in the train station eating and waiting for a "big train.”
The burger was okay, but it could've been great. Although it was still a bit juicy, my medium rare order was served medium well and it could've used a lot more fried onion, but I still enjoyed the hell out of it and the roll was the epitome of a fresh Jersey Kaiser roll.
I'm not going to say much more because you need to get to the Crossroads Eatery and experience it for yourself. Once you cross the threshold of the front door, you’ll feel as if a time machine has brought you back to a quiet, unrushed lifetime, where a man can live his life full measure.
"Next stop, Willoughby".
