Went on an early Friday evening around 5:00 and had no trouble getting a table in the back room. Service was adequate. For all the hype, I was expecting a phenomenal burger. I left disappointed. The burger meat was good and substantial. You get a big burger for $9. Calamari was average and mushy. Nothing fantastic. Seasoning was also average.... More

From the burgers to the wings and even the calamari, everything is good. Perfect atmosphere for watching sports or just grabbing a quick bite. Krugs was also voted best burger in NJ.

Now let me preface this review with this: we happened to walk in right after the end of a Seton Hall game when about 30 other people walked in 10 minutes before us. What does that mean? That means we couldn't get a table for 45 minutes and we waited - get this - 2 hours (and I'm not exaggerating... More

The service from the 2 waiters was poor. Even thought the bar was crowded. The place is really loud from conversations. it took one on the waiters over 20 minutes to give us a menu. Another 30 minutes to get our order. The burgers were OK, even thought we had ordered "medium/rare". they were presented to us "almost well done".... More

Grab a high top, order a burger have a great time. Terrific vibe and one of the things that makes Newark home. Burgers are wonderful and cooked just right. I have never tried anything else because this is simply my go to place for a burger. The range of diners is typical of Newark- families, singles, visitors to Prudential Center... More

I called to place a take out order for lunch since a few people at my work place heard about the burgers being voted the "best". I was told by the person who answered the phone that they were too busy to do a take out order, but I could go there and eat. Well doesn't make much sense because... More

Simply the best burger in NJ (or anywhere else for that matter.) Good apps too. I especially like the little dish of pickles and hot cherry peppers served with your meal. Very decent prices on beer too. You have GOT to try this.

Went there specifically to get the best burger in NJ. Lots of food, took a while to get food, service very friendly, parking very hard even with parking lot. Food was not bad but also not great. I have had many better burgers in NJ. I may try again but I would not go out of my way to go... More

I lived in Ironbound over 4 years, always past by the place, and always thought it was another bar. Who knew it was a hidden gem. By far the one of the best burgers ever tired. Made simple and delicious. You must try...
