Choripan Rodizio in Hackensack appealed to both meat eaters and salad lovers before the grill restaurant was destroyed in a fire nearly 16 months ago.
Now, the popular Argentinian steak house is back in business at 10 Sussex St., near the Bergen County Courthouse.
A woman who was unlocking the front door about 20 minutes before today's 11:30 a.m. lunch service explained the restaurant reopened about a month ago, but the owners haven't been able to update their website.

Open 7 days
I picked up a copy of the lunch menu, which is served from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Five salads are listed, four of them for $6.95 each; and All You Can Eat Rodizio with two side dishes runs $20.
Choripan, a grilled Argentinian-style sausage sandwich, is $10.
The Choripan Burger is served with french fries and includes bacon, egg and American cheese, also $10.
Choripan Rodizio, 10 Sussex St., Hackensack; 201-880-7941. BYO, open 7 days from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. A parking lot is behind the restaurant.
