Our Story

In 1988, Garbo’s opened as a deli and liquor store with the addition of pizza a few years later. We were young and we didn’t know what we were doing, but we knew that food was our passion and that we were going to create something special here. Now, over 31 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). We always say that we’re more than just sandwiches and pizza, and we truly mean it.

We could have never imagined the impact the small community of Ho-Ho-Kus, would have on our family.  We thank you for your endless support and dedication throughout the years; we would not still be here if not for the people that walk through our doors. Every day we look forward to seeing the faces that make Garbo's feel like home. In fact, this is our home; we've raised our kids here and we've watched you raise yours. We're so grateful for our customers who have turned into the greatest friends. We've loved being a part of your family and weekly routine, and we hope that we continue to be a part of it in the years to come.
