If you want the best burger around then you want to go to this place. Don't be scared by the outside or when you walk in the door. I've been here about 5 or 6 times over the years and I went back today. I brought a co-worker here for lunch who had never been before. We each had the... More

People come from far and wide to eat at this place. I have been eating here for the past 25 years the food has been good to better EVERY single time. If you want to be in and out in a hurry don't order the burger as they take quite a while to make because of the size. We recently... More

Don't let the neighborhood or it's looks scare you. Yeah, it's a bar in a big city but inside it's a haven for good food and drinks. Even kids will feel welcome here. Don't come for the atmosphere. It's not bad but don't expect any fancy accoutrements. It's basiclly a bar that serves (excellent) food.Come here for the food. If... More

One of the top 3 burgers I've had. Nice, rare, juicy, and simple. Everything was done right. Have to go back soon!

Had lunch during a weekday here. Not the greatest looking bar, but the burgers are awesome! Huge, juicy and tasty! And the bun was perfect, soft and not too squishy. Don't forget to get the fried shrimp appetizer covered in marinara sauce. Services was excellent. Waitress paid close attention to us and we were visited by I guess one of... More

A hole-in-a wall place located on Wilson Ave. but DOES NOT disappoint for the tastiest and juiciest burger in ALL of NEWARK! A must visit if you are craving for a true Americana classic when visiting the Ironbound!

Great bar, great cheeseburgers, great hosts. I really wish I had such a bar/tavern/restaurant I could drop into after a long work day. The owners are great. They welcome you with a professional pride of a place that knows its value and serve the local community for a long time, even if you are an out of town guy that... More

I love this place, this is my favorite bar in Newark. The Hamburgers are enormous and well priced! They also have terrific wings and cheesesteaks!

A friendly little dive type of bar with great burgers and really good specials daily (if they don't run out before you get there). The spicy shrimp is also really good and the beer is always cold.
