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.

Everyone raves about the White Mana in Hackensack. I was here several years ago to get some cheese burgers with onions for take out. At that time they tasted ok. Today I was on my way to Costco and decided to stop here before the lunch crowd arrived. There was only one person ordering 3 burgers for take out around... More

Now that I've been here, I can take this place off my bucket list. We went here with our relatives that live in the area and were not disappointed. I really enjoyed the burgers and service was excellent.

The burgers taste pretty good the only problem is with the place being so small and the cooking taking place in the center of the room the smell gets on your clothes and everything else. It does not leave you so it takes away from the experience,

Picture this, a little place in my neighbourhood, my garage is bigger than this burger joint, but the burgers are satisfying in taste, size and there is always a long line. best so far.
