Who knows about the "outside" stands, I guess we'll see at the season opener. It does seem like Buffs is out, though.

If Jimmy Buff's is out, I have officially nothing to eat at the Rock except maybe Newark Nut Company for a snack and will be eating in places around the arena prior to the game.

BTW when are they getting rid of that sushi place? That is the absolute worst meal I have ever had anyplace.

I'll be sad Jimmy Buffs is gone. I'll still overpay for some Hobby's every once in awhile if they're around still though.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I finally tried Uber Burger! I have to say it was well worth it! Chico and Matt Loughlin sat two tables away from me. We were the only three people in their for most of the time. Lou even walked by the shop a few times.

Same.. It's too expensive at $12, but my god there is nothing better than a corned beef sandwich with chips, a pickle, and slaw during a hockey game.. JB's was awesome and I hope it's still there

Do the outsourced food stands accept the food cards? If so, money is no object. :lol:

I had the sushi once from the stand and it was okay. Far from special. I assume it's the same place the club sushi came from and it was real hit or miss in there. It was normally okay, a few times great, and a couple of times, borderline rotten.

I never quite cared for Hobby's really. To me they were at the arena and at the actual location a couple blocks away an average deli at best. IDK just my opinion really.

Losing JB in my opinion is worse than losing Doc. This is quite possibly the worst Devils-related news I have heard in a few years.

I'm gonna be really bummed if Jimmy Buff's is gone.

I remember going to the first game at The Rock and being excited to see Ballantine among the beers available because my Grandfather used to work at the Ballantine brewery in Newark. When I told my Dad about it, he began reminiscing about meeting his old man in Newark to get Jimmy Buff's with him on his lunch break. Then, lo and behold, Jimmy Buff's appeared at The Rock! Every time we went to a game together, my Dad and I would get a pair of JB doubles and Ballantines. At the risk of sounding cheesy, it was a cool bit of generational father-son bonding.

Then they stopped carrying Ballantine. And now Jimmy Buff's is gone too? Seriously. This sucks.

Jimmy Buff's is gone.. They did not renew their contract (for whatever reason), but the organization is committed to keeping this section for local businesses

I actually got some insider info on who 1 of the new tenants will be, but they asked us not to share until it's official.. I'm pretty excited though, as it's something I've wanted to see at the Rock

One of? There are multiple new eateries coming to the Rock? Does that mean that more than Jimmy Buff's is gone?

Food was really good the time I ate there. Bacon wrapped hot dog with cheese and jalapenos.

Hell's Kitchen is the bomb-diggity.. Great food, good drinks (always have pregame specials), and you can't beat the dark and red atmosphere.. It does get fairly crowded before bigger games, though, so make reservations if you plan to go before a big game
