Old lunchonette

Hi gang, this was a little before my time I'm guessing...anyone remember a little place behind Solari's (or somewhere in that area) named Hook Fin, or something to that effect?

If you go to the bottom of this page - http://www.city-data.com/forum/new-jersey/630814-jersey-back-day-5.html - you can find a post by "Bergen County Johnny" (any relation?) that mentions the Huck Finn in Hackensack.

I thought Huck Finn was across the street from the Heritage Diner on River Street. Might have eventually become a Roy Rogers? I Google mapped where I thought it was and it looks like the building still exists. Looks like it might have been converted to a bank at one time and now is available. The building is shaped as I recall, you enter in the center of the building and then there was a dining area on each side. Each end of the building was canter levered forward. I believe Shea Chevrolet was on the next block down, on the street behind it.
