“Best Texas Wiener anywhere”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Just the classic Jersey Texas Weiner spot- they may even have been the first. Two all the way, frenchy gravy and a large birch is the perfect order

“Expensive for fast food”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

As in most of the reviews, the food is good..fries with gravy, Texas wieners, thick milk shakes, etc. .......but feeding two people gets a bit pricey....they do run a two for the price of one special, then it is a real bargain. Good once in a while, but not too often

“Great place and fairly cheap”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

There are alot of greesy spoon lunch places but this one is really good. I have been here before I try and go when I visit family in NJ and my dad grew up in Clifton. The roast beef samdwich with gravy is awesome and the fries with cheese and gravy is also awesome. Everything here is pretty good IMO.
