Visited here based on the reviews and it was excellent. Built my own burger as not a fan of cheese and it was excellent. Good atmosphere and busy on a Sunday afternoon! Served by Leanne, attentive and friendly

This is wonderful and quaint burger bar situated on Newark Ave in historic Jersey City. You can get some fantastic burgers already assembled in their menu choices or you can build your own. The service is great, fast, professional and courteous.

This is a great Burger place! Many selections, great sauces. The Fires are outstanding and they have a very good selection of Beers. All in all, if you are looking for a Burger and a Beer, this is the place in JC.

I have been to this spot twice and on both occasions the food was excellent. Burgers are selected from the meat patty right thru toppings and fries. Really nice beer selection on tap. Atmosphere is casual but yet there is a real nice atmosphere. Staff professional and friendly. We highly recommend this establishment.

We come here regularly. Have never been disappointed with the service, the food, the prices. Very consistent and great hours. Whether alone and wanting a beer and a burger or with my husband watching a game a listening to music and updating Facebook. Definitely recommend!

Great spot for a night out on town with friends! The food is great, the burgers creative and the ingredients are fresh! The place fills up pretty quickly and can get a bit rowdy, as I said before, good for a night out on the town!
