Haglers Diner

At this site stood Oradell's first diner, a legendary local hangout for working men and women that was owned and operated by the Hagler Family for approximately 85 years.
Erected in 1928, the diner was a brick building that resembled a dining-car. It replaced an open air lunch wagon the Haglers had operated across Ridgewood Road since 1925. An adjoining tavern and dining room were added in 1937, four years after the repeal of prohibition. The building was remodeled in 2001 and reopened as Felice's Restaurant until closing in 2013.
John Hagler, the original owner and avid hunter, was prohibited by law from selling game in his establishment. However, each year after the hunt, he would invite citizens and families of Oradell to share his venison stew for free, making it an annual Oradell tradition. Hagler's was also renowned for roast beef and its Thursday night specialty, corned beef and cabbage. Hagler's Diner was truly an iconic part of Oradell history.
