Where to get your Pat LaFrieda meats fix in Northern New Jersey (article from Northjersey.com)
I've always enjoyed the burgers at Tops Diner in East Newark. Now I know why. I stopped by today and had a delicious cheese burger with lettuce , tomatoe, raw onion and pickles. It came with a big order of fries. All for $8.50. I ordered it cooked medium and it was perfectly cooked. Why go to Smashburger, 5 Guys or Bobby Flay. This burger is the best.

I have never been to Tops diner, but last night I was at Krug's Tavern for a Bacon Cheeseburger cooked a perfectly requested Medium for $7.50. It's advertised as a 3/4 pound pre-weight patty. which I have found is pretty accurate. Four slices of bacon and two slices of cheese. I think it's a pretty good deal.......The 2-Combo Fried Shrimp and Calamari with Spicy Marinara was also a winner.
Three Burgers, two French Fries, Fried Seafood, Pitcher of Beer and a can of coke....$58, pre-tip.......We also received two large sour/dill pickles and a loaf of bread with butter.
