Work in Newark for over a decade. Had been to Krugs twice before over the years after hearing that the burgers were outstanding. Found them to be large, and prepared as requested (medium rare for me), but lacking in flavor and with extremely long waits to be served. This summer the Newark Star Ledger (northern NJ's main newspaper) with an... More

Krugs is totally old school, been around a long time, and its a no frills type of atmosphere. You go there to eat very good burgers and pub grub, and to have a drink. My burger (cheddar burger) was outstanding, I don't know what they do, because I was watching the girl cook it right behind the bar, but it... More

My family and I flew into Newark and stayed close to the airport. We found this little tavern for dinner. They had a dinner area just behind the bar. It was clean and friendly with the family. The food was good if was fun to watch the sports games on the TV.'s It was a great little place.

Whenever I craved a burger this is THE place to go! Big, juicy and delicious! May not be the nicest looking place but the food is great, people are friendly and the portions are generous! A great local place!

It is a bit of a hole in the wall in kind of a sketchy area of town but, oh man, what a burger! Thick and juicy like you wouldn't believe. We got a bacon cheeseburger and a cheeseburger with Taylor ham. Simply delicious. I am always skeptical of "best whatever" lists but, in this case, the dang old Internet... More
