The neighborhood was interesting. Portugese very commonly spoken. The easiest way to get there was by taxi, but it was about half price to use train and it did not take muck longer. Take the train to New Jersey Penn station and walk up the road! Managed to find a T-mobile store here for prepaid Internet, which had been impossible... More

The Ironbounf is a congestive place to ride around in. If you know the area you can find some great places to eat and shop! The food is great and there are so many restaurants to choose from. Krug's being one of the best places to get food and drinks!

There is an abundance of great Portuguese restaurants in the Ironbound section of Newark. You can find parking at one of the local restaurants or with a minimal search on the street. Just avoid trying to park on Ferry and instead ride down the side streets off of Ferry. Plenty of parking in a strip mall area on Ferry and... More

If you like Portuguese cuisine and influence this is a good spot. There are many good places to eat that are Portuguese food. Just keep your eyes open and take a chance and you will probably be happy.

I had always heard how great the restaurants were in Ironbound but never visited there. Well now that I live close by, I took a journey there. There are so many restaurants you can't believe that they could all stay in business. We went to a small sportsbar, THE BLITZ, at 179 Wilson Avenue, and let me tell you, it... More

I just visited this culturally rich location in Newark as it celebated Portugal Day few days ago. This joyful and glorious event was punctuated with diverse beautiful costumes, dances and good food. Other than this annual event Ironbound is a clean Portuguese community with numerous restaurants and beautiful architecture.

This is a great place to go for an evening to eat. It is safe and interesting , and the food is out of this world. Great Spanish, Portuguese and Brazilian food. Not too expensive and lots of food. There are 20-30 places to choose from, and they are all good! And good dessert places as well, including Nasto's for... More
