Burgers to Remember at an Ironbound Landmark: Krug's!

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... read more

Brother in law suggested Krugs and I could not have been more pleased. Excellent burger & onion rings I devoured in no time and a couple of beers made for a great Friday night with the guys.

We love this place for their burgers. Great place for a burger and a beer. Fancy? No, but the good and service is good. The marinara sauce with the calamari is awesome. Burgers are always fresh and on point!

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!
