MIDLAND PARK, N.J. -- Andy's Community Lunch in Midland Park has been sold after 38 years.

Hawthorne native Andy Swankie, 67, has sold his popular Godwin Avenue eatery so he could spend more time with his family -- especially his 5-month-old grandson, northjersey.com reported.

Swankie — a Hawthorne native who bought the place in 1977 — taught himself to cook and honed his culinary skills at the Goffle Grill in Hawthorne and the Hen’s Roost in Oakland, the article says.

A luncheonette has continually operated at the Andy's location since 1939 and was originally part of a bowling alley, Midland Park Lanes, which is now occupied by V & S Floor Covering Inc., northjersey.com said.
