There is a very important question we need to get to the bottom of...WHERE IS THE BEST BURGER IN THE STATE ON NEW JERSEY?  I did some digging (I'm happy to research this one) and I also took the lead from your opinions. It turns out we have lots of options...in fact, you may want to make this post into a burger bucket list and eat your way though it!

ACCORDING TO YOU:

We started off getting a ton of love from the Northern part of our state:

White Star Bar in Jersey City

Rocky Hill Inn in Rocky Hill

Witherspoon's Grill in Princeton

Brick Farm in Hopewell

Tierney's in Montclair

Krug's Tavern in Newark

Steve's Burgers in Garfield

Cloverleaf Tavern in Bloomfield

White Manna in Hackensack

Then I started seeing some love for the Jersey Shore and South Jersey and I have to stand by these submissions:

Burger 25 in Toms River

This is an Angus Beef Patty, topped with American Cheese, shredded Lettuce (I think this really sets a burger a part), onions, pickles and their House dressing on a sesame bun.  Yes please.

Knob Hill Country Club  in Manalapan

So I'm gonna have to head here because anytime I see hot pepper bacon jam I KNOW it's gonna be my jam.  I'm up for the Jammin’ Burger Platter...juicy beef topped with that house made hot pepper bacon jam, sauteed onions & American cheese. This looks AH-MAY-ZING!

Tony Beef in Galloway or Somers Point

I keep hearing about the "The Ron Swanson" burger at Tony Beefs...they describe this burger as a "meat tornado of mouthwatering greatness" including bacon, beef, baby back ribs, and brisket. Whoa mama.

Outlaws Burger Barn in Vineland

You all can't say enough good things about what you call your "staple" burger. That's it, I'm hangry...

I'm not kidding when I say that I'm saving this intel and I will work my way through this list!  To all the burger bosses out there, your passion inspires me!
