Overall, burger was very good, thick and juicy, but bun gets soggy and makes it difficult to eat. Personally, not the best burger in NJ as claimed by a local newspaper. Excellent wings, crispy and tasty. Parking is tight and limited. Kitchen service is extremely...More

We went here to eat after a night out. The place is cozy.....typical neighborhood pub. The service is great, but expect to wait for your burgers. The wait is worth it and you can certainly try one of their draft beers while doing so. The...More

Cool old bar serving amazing burgers! But how many places can you get Taylor Ham AKA Pork Roll on a burger outside of NJ? So when I come to NJ I get some of that lovely mystery meat on my burger! It is pretty damn...More

I've been to Krug's a number of times. You don't go there for ambiance or great service, you go there for the food. Giant (12 ounces before cooking) burgers, zesty buffalo shrimp, onion rings, and much more. To be honest I've never had their french...More
