I can't believe there's a thread about burgers and no one has mentioned Rossi's. Everyone, hop in the bus. We're going to Trenton.

Please elaborate on this interesting place

Rossi's is a divey bar in a non-descript Trenton neighborhood with burgers so good you'll slap your mother. It's one of those mom & pop kind of places like Mariner's Cove that, once you've been there, you want to tell everyone about it and never get an omelette/burger from anyplace else.

Sounds awesome. How safe is the surrounding area? I have a few friends at TCNJ, sounds like a good place to hit.

Surprised no one has mentioned Fuddruckers.  It was originally Freddy Fuddruckers.  They have a huge selection of burgers and they also have some other good food.  Burgers are from 1/3 to 1 pound.  It is your choice.  I first went to one way up on Route 23N before they got rid of most of the circles.  Today there is one on Rt 22 W in Bridgewater.  I enjoy that place. :)  Check out the menu.

I as well as others have mentioned Fuddruckers in this thread.

 

Very solid and kinda underrated.  I go to the one on rt22 in Bridgewater every now and then.

Hmmm good question.  The only Red Robin I have been to is the one in South Plainfield on or near Hadley.

 

I think while they are kinda different, I think I enjoy them both equally.  They both have unlimited fries and pricing is in the same ballpark.  The main difference is that at Fuddruckers you do not have to leave a tip as they are counter service while at Red Robin you do.

Someone's been watching Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

Why anyone watches that show is beyond me. Guy's a complete hack. Goin' ter flavortown. Yeah, ok, sure you are. The NYT review of his Times Square restaurant was golden. The critic ripped the place to shreds. I also hate his sunglasses that I guess protect the eyes he has behind his head and his stupid dyed soul patch. Him and Anne Burrelle(sp?) should have a kid though. Might stab her on the way out with it's spiky blonde hair.

I just don't see how there's enough diners and hole in the wall places to do a show for this long. I don't need to constantly watch him eat ribs, hot dogs, sausage, pie and crap OVER AND OVER AND OVER. It's BORING. Anybody with 2 brain cells to rub together can make a half decent burger and put some weird crap on top to make it unique. I swear, every time I see peanut butter put on a burger, I die a little inside. You can't just do whatever the hell you want. There's some rules here.

Guy Fieri is just in it for the $$$$ and clearly has 0 skills as a cook. I once saw him on his show, in flip flops, in a kitchen. What kind of moron wears open toe shoes in a kitchen? Isn't he supposed to be a chef?

For me, Anthony Bourdain is pretty much the only tolerable TV chef out there. I like that Giada chick, but that's only because I think she's kinda hot, despite her oversized head. I think it might be the fact that when she physically puts the food into her mouth with the music, the camera, the way she makes the "yum" sound, it all just seems like a porno to me, lol. Is this a little too much info?

Back on topic:

Fuddruckers is good, been going there since I was a little kid, used to stop there all the time after practice or a game at BSA or Chimney Rock. Still go there every once in a while. Quick service, no tipping, bottomless fries.

5 Guys is better than going fast food, but is double the price. You do get more fries than you could ever eat though(fried in peanut oil too) and as many peanuts as you want. Not the place for anyone with a peanut allergy.

It was sad when the Fuddrucker's on Rt. 1 in Edison right by New Brunswick closed down.  Reminded me of Idiocracy.

Does anybody remember the Fuddruckers on Route 4? Stood their for a while until it closed to make way for some Cuban place (which I hear mixed reviews about)

Sounds awesome. How safe is the surrounding area? I have a few friends at TCNJ, sounds like a good place to hit.

 

I'll put it this way: I've never had any issues; my Dad, who's been going since his father took him there for burgers as a kid, has never had any issues; and my friends from the Trenton/Hamilton/Bordentown area (and their fathers, who've also been going since they were kids) have never had any issues; but any time I take someone there for the first time, they always express the same "Will the car be stolen if we park here?" concerns because of Trenton's rep and the look of the neighborhood.

 

And any time I take someone to Rossi's for the first time, they all come away saying it was the best burger they've ever had.

Yep, the one in Paramus. That's the only Fuddruckers I ever went to. It was pretty popular in the area but lost a lot of business once they closed the 10-screen cineplex next door.

 

I have yet to try Dos Cubanos but will eventually.

Not that I post here as often as I used to, but I haven't seen you on the boards in a while. Did you take last season off?

 

Anyway, nothing like a good burger thread to get the juices flowing again.

For someone who doesn't post that often, that's mighty observant! Yeah, life went and got pretty damn busy these past many months. But things are somewhat settled now, and there's absolutely no way I can allow a burger thread to come and go without defending Rossi's honor.

 

So, back to business as usual. Fire Brodeur! Trade Lou! :headless chicken:

Anybody here from South Jersey?  Specifically, has anyone ever been to Burger 21 in Voorhees?  I'm asking because they just announced they'll be opening one in the Albany area in a few months.  The menu LOOKS killer, but I was wondering if anyone's been there and has an opinion on the place.
