The BEST Burger Period...

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... read 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

And had heard they had one of the best burgers in the area. They have parking in the rear which makes it a bit easier in an area where you may have to park a few blocks away. We entered to a clean friendly atmosphere, and the waitress was with to take our order within seconds . We went with... More

Best find on my recent business trip to Jersey. My business colleague and I rely on Tripadvisor to find the best of the best. This nostalgic morsel was nestled in the heart of a wonderful little ethnically diversified neighborhood. The interior was well aged with tons of character, plenty of seating and a great crowd. The burgers were a beast,... More

The hungry visitor will not be disappointed if he or she meanders on down from Ferry Street and then onto Wilson Avenue to find Krug's Tavern. Did somebody say BURGERS? Well, believe me. You will get your fill and then some. It's not just about quantity. These are hefty, delicious burgers that will go so well with fries and perhaps... More
