There’s A Small Town In New Jersey Known For Its Truly Epic Burgers
New Jersey has some incredible burger joints. Wherever you are, you’re never far from a good burger. White Manna in Hackensack is a local legend and Oliver A Bistro in Bordentown has the most incredible selection of gourmet burgers, but if you’re looking for one tiny town with a variety of epic burgers, Manasquan is the place to be.
Manasquan is small shore town in Monmouth County.
It comes in at just around 2.5 square miles and is home to about 5,800 residents. While it's not New Jersey's most bustling beach town, it does have a nice selection of shops and restaurants along with the historic Algonquin Theatre. While a variety of cuisines are available in this little town, it's the burgers that really stand out.
When it comes to epic burgers, they've got plenty! Let's start with The Committed Pig.
The Committed Pig has three locations in New Jersey - Summit, Morristown and Manasquan. Its burgers have won multiple awards including making the top three on NJ.com's best burgers list. Though the pancakes and pork roll sandwiches are also favorites, there are just so many burgers to choose from, each more delicious than the next. All burgers are double patty burgers made with a short rib, hangar steak, and brisket blend provided by Pat La Frieda NY, NY. Options include the Triple B (bleu cheese, bacon, balsamic glaze), Burgernut (American cheese burger served on a glazed donut) and Good Morning (porkroll, egg & gruyere topped burger). Find The Committed Pig at: 168 Main Street.
The Irish Rail is a fan favorite!
Customers rave about the burgers here; this is what the business has to say about them: "Made from a full half pound of select ground beef, our burgers are sure to tempt the taste buds of any beef-loving burger connoisseur. Always fresh, never frozen, hand packed beef, hand selected produce, and bakery fresh sesame seed buns, we appeal to true burger lovers everywhere." We agree! These burgers are definitely some of the best on the shore. The Buffalo Burger is a fun choice but the French Onion Burger is absolutely out-of-this-world. They've also got GIANT sliders and burger specials every Monday. You'll find The Irish Rail at: 229 E Main Street.
Harpoon Willy's is a waterfront spot that serves up steak, seafood and mouthwatering burgers.
This restaurant may not have the biggest selection of burgers but each of their six options is full of flavor. They're fresh, juicy and seasoned to perfection! Which burger to try first? I'd go with the So Cal, topped with avocado, frizzled onions, roasted tomatoes & spicy mayo. They've also got a veggie burger available but the meat can't be beat. You'll find Harpoon Willy's at: 2655 River Road.
