Krugs is my favorite place to go enjoy a bacon cheeseburger, chicken parm, chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, and so many other items on the menu. I personally don't like seafood but everyone I know loves their shrimp and calamari. My husband loves their buffalo wings and burgers of course. Their sweet, medium, and hot sauces are delicious!
They recently renovated the front of the bar giving it a whole new atmosphere and feel. They are currently working on the back room. The bar tenders are all really nice and friendly. They have the best bar tenders in newark!! Forget about going to a Portuguese restaurant if you are in Newark. Head to Krugs which has been voted best burger in county by the star ledger many times!!! You will thank me!!!

Don't let the old building and location fool you. The burger is one of the best I have ever had. Service is a little slow but worth the wait so order a pitcher to pass the time. The hot and spicy calamari was yummy as well. The place is absolutely worth a try.
