Fast food that is overly rated. I find that more than the quality of the food it is really about this little place in the middle of Hackensack that is nostalgic and attracts people to stop in.

Bada bing...bada... More

I have always heard a lot about this place reading food blogs and tv food shows. Of course I had to try it. It is a very tiny place with tightly squeezed in stools for seating. The people working there were not the friendliest and communication may be an issue. I had 2 double cheeseburgers and an order of fries.... More

If you live in Northern New Jersey, you have to go here at least once. The burgers are very good, the fries are excellent, the staff is fast and fun to listen to -- learn the jargon or have a tough skin -- and the place is pretty clean. Small, and the waits can be long -- plan to eat... More

Aside from recognizing the ground beef going on to the grill, that remains pretty much the only positive thing I can say about my experiences at White Manna. There just are not many times where a I wish I were actually eating at White Castle instead. I'm not sure if what comes off the griddle is cooked or just grey... More

When you pull up to the restaurant you might be inclined to turn and run, but you would be making a bad mistake. It's a Joint. A Burger joint. Small, crowded and a bit run down. But, don't walk out; walk right up to counter and order yourself the best hamburger anywhere. If you are a health nut, this is... More

A New Jersey classic. Be sure to eat there and drink in the atmosphere. This is what White Castle burgers would taste like if they were good.

I have eaten at the White Manna a bunch of times and find it a bit small inside. The hamburgers are fresh and are made in front of you. It is a fun place to bring the kids and hang out for a little while. If you like French fries, small hamburgers this is the place for you.
