Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle disks to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of grilled fare at Jersey Burgers in Ramsey.
Jersey Burgers' flame wielders expertly grill up a menu of made-to-order burgers, hot dogs, and sandwiches, earning their eatery the distinction of #1 burger joint in Bergen County by the Highland Fling in 2009. Widen the gullet with a hearty hamburger ($4.49), which can be customized with a bevy of toppings that include cheese, grilled onions, bacon, and jalapenos ($.85–$1 each), or hang a fang on one of the beefless choices, such as the chicken burger ($4.99), veggie burger ($5.99), or salmon burger ($5.99). Diners can also swan dive into a slew of other meaty options, including a philly-cheesesteak sandwich ($6.99) or a deep-fried hot dog ($3.50). Pump up your feast without infusing it with muscle milk or shouting girly-man epithets at it by ordering a savory sidekick, such as curly fries ($1.99–$3.99), zucchini sticks ($3.99–$5.99), or mac 'n' cheese bits ($3.99–$5.99). A funnel-cake dessert leaves taste buds humming a sacchariferous note ($3–$4.99).
Tim Latterner of the Highland Fling considers Jersey Burgers "…the place to go for anyone who craves a juicy, tender and reasonably priced burger," describing the food as “melting in your mouth” and “made with love.” The chefs at Jersey Burgers earn such praise by making each beef, salmon, and veggie burger fresh to order, stacking crisp bacon, jalapeños, and gooey cheese between fresh buns. They also cook up hot dogs, meaty sandwiches, and crispy fries that complete classic American meals or classic American food fights.
