“mmmm good! authentic”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Have to have a burger, they grind the meat fresh. This is an "old school joint" like eating in someone's living room, or you can sit at the bar. Leave your attitude at the door and enjoy the old pictures on the wall and a taste of old Trenton. My husband loved all the baseball memorabilia and the food! By the way the burgers are HUGE so make sure you are hungry!

“Nothing fancy and good food.”
Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Rossi's was great. It was a quick taxi ride from the Trenton Marriott; do not recommend you walk here. That said the bar has walls adorned with memorabilia of famous patrons and local sports stars such as DiMaggio. The bar is a classic rectangular bar with nothing overhead and seating all around the bar and a room in the back. I was with a group of 12 and we fit snugly in the back room. Claire and Samantha were our waitresses and did a great job with both service and recommendations on food choices. I had the double pork chop dish. The chops were nearly 2" thick and lightly salted and peppered. They were cooked under a broiler and came out juicy and hot. I normally can eat a large meal but struggled to finish one chop...huge! The appetizers here weren't bad and if fried have a darker oily coating than a typical chain would offer. Other guests had hamburger and said they were incredible. The hamburger steak looked good and was over a pound of meat and the local classic of porkrolls had rave reviews. Low key, casual, and budget friendly. I'd go again if ever back in the area.

“New Jerseys best Burger Joint”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Forget the chains and the fancy overpriced burger, Rossi's serves up a perfectly cooked pound of meat on a bun and you want to eat every morsel of it!! A Trenton tradition!!
