What great little burgers

White Manna is an institution in Bergen County and one of the 'must sees' in the burger world all over the country. It is mentioned in every food magazine that rates good burgers. They are three bite burgers for most people and try to get them without too many onions. They are made fresh in front... read more

I went while visiting a friend in the area, and enjoyed the food. It was very crowded, but exciting to be someplace I'd seen on tv. My friend and I chose to eat in his vehicle to get away from the crowd and the cold. There was a homeless man in the back of the parking lot picking through trash,... More

Seriously I don't understand why this tiny place is packed - burgers were small (OK taste) and did not even come with lettuce and tomatoes... disappointed!

Ok so I am not from around bergen county, but after moving to Hackensack my wife made this huge deal about going to White Manna. Well we went and it was interesting. White manna is a classic sliders stand. The menu is simple, but effective. I ordered cheese burger with onion and ketchup. The burgers were a little greasy but... More

This place is always packed and the reason is because they have excellent food. The place offers this incredible little burgers. My only wish is that it would be cleaner. then I would definitely give a 5 star. To the owners, I like your food, but keeping a place clean from outside to the inside and your place will not...

this place is really something. the burgers are terrific and cooked right in front of you on the grill which is the centerpiece of the U shaped counter. Be prepared to wait for a seat as this place is tiny.

I started going to the White Manna as a rookie cop walking a beat in 1964. The best breakfast, then the best lunch. Walking the midnight shift, I would wait for the owner to open up at 6AM to get a hot cup of coffee. He used to order fresh ground beef every day and cut up fresh onions every... More

White Mana in Hackensack has the best small burger on a bun by far. Go there and taste it for yourself, you will be a believer!

This small, 1930s diner is as unassuming as it is (justly) famous. The small burgers on potato rolls are a thing of perfection (and a true cheap eat). Definitely get it with onions and, if you like it, cheese. The question is not whether to go but how many burgers to get when you are there. A must.
