Best little burgers I've ever had. I can eat 4 of them their so tasty. It gets packed standing room only, but its worth it.

Been here for years and still going strong. Standing room only many afternoons for lunch. Worth waiting for. Using potato bread rolls does the trick along with the caramelized onions.

I lived in Teaneck N.J. for the first 16 years of my life. Every Saturday, I would travel by bicycle to Hackensack, just to eat, the best hamburgers in the world. Fast forward fifty years, and an old man, visits his old childhood haunts. First stop, White Manna! Same, little worlds fair building, and still, "The best hamburger in the... More

Been going here since I was a kid. Small place, but that's part of the charm. Sliders before they were called sliders. The extra late hours are a welcome change. Just get some with cheese and onions. Drinks and fries are not ordered from the cook.

We've had burgers everywhere and this place is one of the best, if not the best. Order at least 3-4 with the cheese and onions and you won't be disappointed. Tiny place but it is a true institution

They've been making sliders the same way here for almost 80 years, with fresh ingredients (you can see every burger start out as a ball of bright red, freshly-ground beef) on a grill in full view of the customers. Well worth a detour if you're anywhere nearby. It's what White Castle USED to be 90 years ago, before they destroyed... More

Like most people I heard about this from DD&D and it certainly doesn't disappoint. It's very small and you need to have your wits about you as the ordering process is pretty odd, one person takes one part of your order like the sliders then another takes the drinks order etc etc. be on your toes and it's a great...

Drove an hour to eat at the White Manna. Its iconic, great experience. Sliders were everything I'd had hoped for. If your a foodie thats into checking out the old local roadside grub, than this is a must visit.

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!
