Our Story

SINCE 1988

Family owned, family operated. 

Garbo's is a family-owned and operated deli located in the heart of downtown Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ. And while the town has undergone plenty of transformations over the past 33 years, we've remained the same. Still serving you the delicious food you know and love, from delicious pastas and salads, mouthwatering sandwiches and pizza, to fresh wet mozzarella - we've stayed true to our roots to make sure we're always giving you that authentic Garbo's feel. 


Owners: Ernie & Janet Garbaccio

This one is our favorite. 

Garbo's opened as a deli & liquor store in 1988. We were young and we had no idea what we were doing, but food was our passion we were going to create something special here. Now, over 33 years later, we've come to realize that the most special thing about Garbo's is the atmosphere that lives inside; the conversations, the laughs, and even the prayers (not to mention the delicious smell of Ernie's cooking). When we say that we're more than just sandwiches and pizza, we truly mean it. 


Garbo's is our home away from home - it's where we come together as a family and where we've met so many customers who have turned into lifelong friends. We've raised our kids here and over the past 3 decades, we've watched you raise yours. 

We could have never imagined the impact the community of Ho-Ho-Kus would have on our family. We thank you for your endless support and dedication throughout the years. We've loved being a part of your weekly routine and we hope that we continue to be a part of it in the years to come.
