Reliably Good Comfort Food!

White Manna's burgers - you know what to expect -yummy burgers which are comfort food! Sure it's not the healthiest stuff, but it's always good and always crowded!

I visited White Manna just before closing while on a road trip. My boyfriend and I had heard so much about this place on TV, so I was expecting some of the best burgers ever. The place is crazy small -- I don't think more than15 people can stand comfortably in it at once. The flat-top is in the center,... More

It is a smallest restaurant you may visit. You must understand that is fast food as is. There is no classy neither fancy Things you can get there. Burgers are small and tasty, my wife love it. I got stake burger. It is for working people, stoping for the lunch. No more no less.

Classic old (think 30's-40's-era tiny lunch-counter-type roadside diner) burger joint that makes fresh sliders (get 'em with the grilled onions, of course) and the usual accompaniments. The taste is a throwback to what food used to taste like. Nice and fresh, made-to-order, and slightly greasy. Fortunately the place itself is not. Although still mostly fitted with the original interior (lots... More

this place always has a line out the door. And it rightfully should. Theyy pump out tiny, delicious little burgers easily eaten in multiples. This local little, and I mean little, shop is a neighborhood staple and for foodies on the road. Gotta try Manna!

this is a great place to get in, make your order- and get out... there is usually a crowd in this tiny joint...but you won't be disappointed... decide quickly what, how many burgers you want and know that ordering fries and drinks are taken separately... we come here for nostalgia- and of course the yummy sliders. NOT a place to... More

Its more of an experience as a roadside attraction than epicurean delight, but if you want to experience 1940s Roadside Americana this is the place. The little art deco dinner with it's half oval set of stools lined up around a grill was originally a food concession stand at the 1939 World's Fair. The cook at the grill masters cooking... More

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 of you and you... 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
