Like the well regarded Krug Tavern burger in Newark, NJ, New Park Tavern carries on the tradition of big, juicy burgers cooked by the bartender.
 
Both sell what must be 3/4lb burgers, juicy as can be, in a very informal setting.  New Park Tavern, on West Side Avenue south of Communipaw Ave, is very sketchy from the outside, so it's a well kept secret in the area.  Very, very limited menu, but the drinks are cheap and the burger terrific.

    Ah...if only it was not in that part of town I would go, but for safety's sake I try not to venture outside of downtown JC

      Some of life's finer foods all over this great land are in that "part of town". Go during the day, go like you have been there before.

        Well, there is a small parking lot onsite, and the place is frequented by JC police and firefighters-I think some are partners-so it's an oasis of sorts in the neighborhood.

          If I been nothing but safe in Jersey City I think most other folks would be safe for a hamburger.

            It depends on what part of JC you are in. Unfortunately, I do not have a car to get to park tavern. Is it by the light rail?

              The West Side Ave. Ave train from the Hoboken terminal and I think it may be a block or two walk. Not a bad walk in the afternoon.
              Would I send you down Ocean Ave. at midnight asking for directions with a sack full of cash? No don't do that.

              Jason would never have made the horror movie sequels if he was roaming down Communipaw Ave. He would have been mask down on the sidewalk...before he got the chainsaw going. That is why he stayed by the lake or in the woods.

              They mix a nice stiff drink as well...if you are not driving.
