When you see someone come in and order 50 cheeseburgers with everyone To Go, then you gotta believe you're in the right place!! The burgers are too good for words and you must have them with cheese, pickles and catsup. Do it to yourself at least once!! They melt in your mouth, honest. I'm a big guy and I had... More

Usually a late night stop. There is a reason why it's often featured on TV shows. Old time burger joint, in the same way as White Castle. The one on Tonnelle Ave is better though.

One reason I no longer eat meat is the mystery beef served at White Manna, yet I often see a line out the door of this tiny place. You can just assume the burgers are the equivalent of garbage. Will the owners ever tell customers exactly what they are eating?

I wanted to like this place but was disappointed by the food and environment. The ambiance is old school but also dingy and could use some cleaning. The counter staff is pleasant enough but it's not clear what they are doing. The burger guy only acknowledges you when it's your turn to order but only the burgers. He will then... More

Fast food that is overly rated. I find that more than the quality of the food it is really about this little place in the middle of Hackensack that is nostalgic and attracts people to stop in.

Old school burger joint in Hackensack (Bergen County)...you go in, grab an empty stool...place your order, watch your burger cooked in front of you...shoot the breeze with the staff, maybe a friendly banter...or not (you can keep to yourself too, it is a free country anyways buddy)...enjoy your meal...pay for it and your done and out the door. Bada bing...bada... More

I have always heard a lot about this place reading food blogs and tv food shows. Of course I had to try it. It is a very tiny place with tightly squeezed in stools for seating. The people working there were not the friendliest and communication may be an issue. I had 2 double cheeseburgers and an order of fries.... More

If you live in Northern New Jersey, you have to go here at least once. The burgers are very good, the fries are excellent, the staff is fast and fun to listen to -- learn the jargon or have a tough skin -- and the place is pretty clean. Small, and the waits can be long -- plan to eat... More
