My family and I visited after my son's soccer game, based on other reviews we read, and we were not disappointed. There's a reason Krug's was voted Best Burger in NJ. The burgers are huge and the quality is the best we've ever had in...More

Great bar with great atmosphere. Don't plan on being in a hurry! All the food is made fresh to order and the 3/4 lb hamburgers take a while to cook. Once inside, you'll never know you're in Newark. Lots of regulars, many of which are...More

Waited forever to have table cleaned .Longer wait for service. Longer wait for 2 beers. Set your hair on fire for eating utensils. One hour plus to cook two Hamburgers that looked and tasted like a wallet .What a joke !!

Stopped in for some takeout the night before a next-day flight out. Neighborhood is interesting but don't let it stop you from going there. We ordered a burger and the bar pie pizza and fed 3 of us with leftovers! Added a beer while waiting...More

Kurg's has been around for years and years. The food has always been good and the cheeseburger are the best ever! A visit to the Ironbound would not be complete without sampling some great food at Krug's.

Went here with a buddy before the Devils game -- a great spot. The burgers were amazing and we started with the fried shrimp in hot sauce. We ate and drank like kings and the bill was very reasonable. I will be back for sure.

Well worth a visit. The burgers are big and very tasty. I walked from the Hilton Penn and was glad of the walk back after I had eaten half a cow. I started with the hot wings - excellent. All washed down with Guinness. Happy...More

You wouldn't expect it considering the location and its appearance, but it's as good as the reputation says it is. Service is sloooooow, even when not crowded like lunch today (Tuesday) so can't imagine how long it would take on a busy night. Worth the...More
