It's a pretty good burger, but Left Bank isn't the best burger Downtown, let alone the city or the entire state. Still, as has been said, good to see JC get some press.

The fact that they are getting these type of accolades means they may not change and continue to serve shitty food to you idiots who don’t have a good palate.

This forum is unapologetic truth. People can say what they want. If you really expect everyone to come out and say, Hey That’s great a local business is getting coverage, good for them! You’re kidding yourself. Best burger in NJ? This is laughable.


I totally agree, that burger was shameful, I could get a better burger next door for a fraction of the cost at the chicken shack next door.

I wasn't aware of the stereotype that we are all assholes. Everyone thinks that? This is the first I've heard. I thought that was people from NY and France.

Seriously. Not to mention that the one time I've been to Left Bank, my burger was fantastic. Not the best in the city, but excellent.

I wasn't really impressed with Left Bank, but regarding their pick for best burger in New York, I'd have to say that Minetta Tavern's Black Label burger really is as sublime as the reviews suggest.

By Ana Ferrer

Whether it’s the number three special on your favorite fast food menu, the patty melt at your favorite greasy spoon or the organic, grass-fed piece of pure beef that your friend makes for every barbecue, everyone has a favorite burger.

For some, there are fewer things more comforting than a cheeseburger, and if made right, a burger can be a religious experience.

After some research on Yelp and a solid recommendation from a colleague, I sampled burgers from 9th and Coles Tavern, Park and Sixth Comfort Food and New Park Tavern, all of which are in Jersey City.

From 9th and Coles Tavern, located on 174 Coles St., I ordered the basic 8-ounce beef burger with cheddar and fries. The burger, served on a not-so-buttery-and-soft brioche roll, started to fall apart with the first bite, so much so that it was easier to eat the patty and cheese with my knife and fork.

The patty itself looked like it was made in-house and not straight from a freezer. My partner in crime ordered the “9C Signature Burger,” which comes with sautéed mushrooms, a slice of taylor ham, hot pepper mayo and a fried egg. He enjoyed the mess even though his burger it, like it’s smaller counterpart, started to fall apart as well.

Overall, the food was similar to going to a diner, which is by no means a problem since you can’t always go to your favorite diner and have a few beers with your burger and fries.

Also, you can’t go wrong with some Metallica and a few verses of “Pour Some Sugar On Me” playing in the background.

I suggest the appetizer sampler with your beers or at the very least the bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers.

From Park and Sixth Comfort Food, located at 364 Grove St., I ordered the Powerhouse Prime Burger with gorgonzola and sweet potato fries. They use ground short rib for their burgers, which in my opinion made the flavor beefier and the burger juicier, but I could have just been cheese-drunk on the mac and cheese they serve. Either way, this burger was top notch.

I suggest pairing the burger with their homemade iced tea, which has its own unique flavor. To me, it tasted like peaches, honey and cinnamon ,and to my dining partner it tasted like an Arnold Palmer.

I suggest the powerhouse prime burger and the brussels sprouts hash, and if you’ve got the room, go halfsies on a macaroni and cheese – you won’t regret it.

At New Park Tavern, on 575 West Side Ave., the menu, a chalkboard at the end of the bar, has about six items listed on it. We ordered a burger and a corned beef sandwich from this hole-in-the-wall bar. Both were deliciously simple and uncomplicated.

The burger, which was a bit bigger than a hockey puck, was perfectly browned on the inside and juicy in the middle and sandwiched in a poppy seed kaiser roll.

The American cheese was melted and covered the patty like a yellow comforter. They don’t crowd the bun with lettuce, onions and tomato either. It’s straight beef, cheese and bun and I’m OK with that.

A more basic burger would be impossible to find.

The only thing missing on the burger? Ketchup.

My biggest disappointment was that I hadn’t been there sooner.

Also, the prices are incredible. Two beers, two burgers and fries and a corned beef sandwich came out to about $30.

Where’s your favorite burger joint? Drop me a line at alovesfood@gmail.com.

The Maritime Parc burger is pretty excellent if you're in the mood for a "fancy" burger and comes with duck fat fries for like $12. However, if you want the best old school burger in NJ (better than New Park Tavern IMO), Krug's Tavern in Newark is where it's at.

We went to White Star last night (the original location). Very good Thursday $5 margarita, the $9 burger (using Pat LaFrieda beef, on a Balthazar bun) was cooked perfectly to order and served with a big pile of shoestring potatoes and had great flavor. Even with the nearby La Festa Italiana taking place we scored a great parking spot-I'd go off hours otherwise to avoid circling trying to find a spot. We'll be back.

I also second grodonh's suggestion of the BBO deal at Maritime Parc. Hard to top that Thursday night deal! The oysters are always top quality, their draft beer selections always include some great quality options and the burgers (all of them) are great. As he (she?) points out, the salmon version is probably the least great, but it is still solid. I'll be there this Thursday!

Worth trying is the Oyster, Burger, Brew night at Maritime Parc for $20 on thursday nights. You get six oysters, a choice of burger (pork/beef, beef, scallop, and salmon), duck fat fries, and a beer or wine. So far we've had the pork, scallop, and salmon burgers. The pork is outstanding. The scallop burger was surprisingly good, too. The salmon was disappointing - dry. If you go, i recommend you make reservations.

Gave White Star another shot this weekend (after numerous overcooked hockey pucks from there) and was pleasantly surprised. My burger was a perfect med rare and very well seasoned. Also, that Balthazar bun was on point. Not best in JC (still beast burger from P&6), but I'd def come back. I've also tried New Park Tavern since I last posted and that was a pretty damn good classic burger. Too bad the fries were oily as hell though, that brought the meal down a bit.

Completely agree. Five Guys has arguably the best fries of any fast food chain. But while they've got great choices of toppings for their burgers, the actual patties are nothing more than chopped shoe leather.

Grill 274 in the Heights - a takeout joint - does have a delicious burger, primarily as a result of the flame-broiled patty that always has a nice off-the-grill charred taste. The fries are also above average.

I think its a tie between white star and skinners.
White star gets an extra nod cause they deliver.

Nobody here seems to be mentioning the most important ingredient; the one that really makes the Park Tavern burger the best. i.e. Taylor Ham. I know of nowhere else that you can ask for a burger with a slice of Trenton's gift to the world, and the bartender doesn't bat an eyelid.

As long as you are not concerned about your arteries, it really makes the sandwich.
