Back on topic...

White Mana is the best burger place hands down.. Hate the workers who act like its your honor to be there and it's small as hell, but its the best in NJ

The pizza burger at Keug's Tavern in Newark is close behind

25 Burgers is good. Had no idea it's a ripoff of RR but I still enjoy it

I actually was addicted to Bobby's burger Palace in Cherry Hill for a while.. The sauces are really good.. I agree its too expensive though

Not a fan of 5 Guys.. It's too greasy and messy

Elevation Burger is good but doesn't really have anything that stands out to me, other than the burger that's one patty beef and one patty veggie.. Good option for people like me who feel guilty about food very easily

Never had Smash Burger

FIve Guys sucks.   Most Bar & Grill establishments blow that away.

 

The Office has excellent burgers as does Arthur's Steak house.

 

But the best Burger in NJ were at Maxwell's in Hoboken, which I had for the last time last night.

 

five guys is ok, at least the one near me on li was ok.   By far All American has the Best burgers around (on LI), a must have for anyone from Nassau county, hell a must have for anyone on long island.

I think another underrated burger is fuddruckers even though they are a national chain.

I waited over 2 years for a case to take me nearby White Manna after seeing it in Diner's, Drive-In's & Dives. 

 

Extremely disappointed. They were ok, That's it, and the fries blew chunks.  It's funny, I had a value Wendy cheeseburger the other day and I was thinking how it was just as good as White Manna's slider

I've yet to have a chain burger I've loved. I've had a couple random ones in small places that stand out (Double Windsor in Brooklyn, Horse Feathers in Tarrytown, Frog and Onion in Bermuda I know, random, but really good burger). In general, I like burgers at good bars. They tend to be a step up from burger specialists, even Shake Shack. 

 

I like Smash better than Elevation. Want to try Krug's, but I've had some bad luck (closed when I went once, got held up when meeting people there and told them to eat without me).

Agreed. They weren't bad, but I expected more.

A) You're all making me hungry.

 

B) This burger talk has nothing to do with the topic.

 

C) I keep coming to this thread for any new information on said topic, which I get none cause it's all burger talk.

 

D) Make new topic or something.

 

Thanks and sorry..I know the offseason throws threads way off topic and I've been a part of that but it's getting bad lately. 

 

E) On topic: Last I read earlier today from someone was that Cablevision/MSG actually purchased all rights of the "air space" above Penn, so the city really has no leg to stand on. They are basically there tax free and what people are saying is that the city is using this as a way of hopefully starting to get some tax revenue to allow them to stay there. Also, with the voting I guess that coming up they wanna appease the community to make it look like they're doing something to "improve" the sh!t hole subway system.

Was in Brazil this summer, had quite the interesting burger:

Half pound of meat, cooked a lot less than the medium well I'm used to in the states. Gouda cheese, fried egg, Chopped maple syrup coated bacon, potato sticks and diced tomatoes. They called it "privada entupida" which literally translates to "toilet plunger". Delicious, though!

From the guy who lead a forum-wide discussion of his (clearly false) twitter crush? C'mon

Obviously I don't know anything about local Jersey burger joints, but on the national chains:

 

- I don't get the appeal of Five Guys.  It's the very definition of "meh".  The ability to pick and choose your toppings is overshadowed by the fact that the burgers themselves are bland and uninspiring, and the fries aren't anything special.

 

- Red Robin could stand to cut their prices by a buck or two, but I actually really like them.  My go-to burger there is the Royal, which is a bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg on top.  I'm also a fan of the mushroom-and-Swiss burger, whatever it's called.

 

- I miss Fuddrucker's.  We only had one in the Albany area; it closed a couple years ago when the landlord raised the rent and was replaced by a Hooters.

 

- I rarely go to Wendy's and Burger King, but when I do, I usually get chicken instead.  That should tell you something.

 

- McDonald's is good when you get a craving for burger-flavored grease.  From that twisted perspective, the Double Quarter Pounder is quite possibly the greatest burger on the planet.  And the Chicken McNuggets are strangely addicting.

Nice! I'm trying to get to Brazil for the World Cup next year. If you like the Brazilian style burgers, go to Altas Horas. It's Down Neck, a bit far from the Rock, but doable if you drive out early before a game.

Anyone been to White Rose in Highland Park?  I live around the corner from that place.  I believe they are similar to White Manna and White Diamond with the caramelized onions, although I haven't been to either of those two places.  I feel like the burger to bread ratio isn't ideal if you get a single burger, so I usually get a double cheeseburger, sometimes with bacon.  If I'm drunk enough that I don't care about money and I'm down to ball out, I get a double bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg, it's awesome.

Burger Express in Carteret.

 

Five Guys is good, and I liked Elevation Burger the one time I was there (Montclair, I think?).

 

Oh, and LOLRangers or something.

The Memphis Burger at The Office is one of if not the best burger I've ever had, wash it down with a Dogfish Head, now we're talking.

MSG has no chance in hell of being knocked down in 10 years so everyone might as well keep talking about burgers. I gotta start visiting some of these places lol

Gotta agree with the general feelings towards Five Guys..way too expensive for an average burger.  $15 for a burger, fries, and a drink?  Right..

 

Huge fan of Red Robin's burgers (and the bottomless steak fries..mmm..).  Also a BIG fan of Cheeburger Cheeburger.  Probably my favorite burger.  Granted, I haven't been to any of the smaller places mentioned in this thread, definitely will have to do so in the future.

 

..sh!t it's wayy too early to be craving a burger :lol:

Totally forgot about cheeburger cheeburger. They have some good stuff but I wonder sometimes if their name drives people away.

I went to a Cheeburger Cheeburger once and I thought it sucked, but I wonder if it was that particular Cheeburger Cheeburger (in Flemington) that sucked.  My uncle tried it once and warned me, but I took my wife and daughter anyway...sadly, turned out he was 100% right.  That location closed down a while ago...Flemington is a burger overkill area anyway...there's a Five Guys, a 25 Burgers (used to be a Pizza Hut), a Wendy's, a McDonald's, a TGIF, a Chili's, and not too far up the road, a Sonic.  There's also a BK that's been closed and "under renovation" for three years, but it doesn't look like anything's really being done with it.  I'm guessing Cheeburger Cheeburger didn't make it there for a reason.

5 Guys must be much more expensive in the NY area cuz I never thought the prices were that bad. I also just get a single burger.  The double is just too much meat for me.  I do enjoy their fries though.

I've only ever been to the Cheeburgers on route 1 near Princeton, and the one on Nassau Street in Princeton.  No complaints on either, but quality could definitely vary from place to place, wouldn't surprise me.

I am going to assume you don't ride the NYC subways.   The subway system is very, very good and clean with new cars for the most part.    The city does have a leg to stand on and they are going to use that muscle to get some revenue, for the good of the city.   Penn Station is far more important to MSG, than MSG is to Penn Station and NYC.  

 

Would not be surprised if the West Side/Jets old project comes back into the discussion.

True and the fact that for $2.50 you can go pretty much anyplace in the entire system is still pretty damn good.  Every other subway I have been on they charge you based on distance.
