Where to eat on Washington St., Hoboken, N.J.? - Tue, 05/29/12 3:16 PM

Was thinking about a day trip there since it's close to Long Island. Are there any standouts? Me and the fam are interested in just about any kind of food leaning towards sandwiches, pizza, and fried chix. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

For GREAT pizza, try Benny Tudino's at 622 Washington Street. Ate there last summer......GIANT pie(I think over 20 inches)...ads call it the largest pie in the state..two slices are like 4-5 any place else....and it was delicious. Check other posts here, and on the internet, It's fun, just to see that pie coming out of the oven!!!!!

If your family is fun and you want to experience the quirky offbeat vibe of <<<Hoboken>>> you can go to Dozzino...for excellent modern pizza and a nice game of Bocce. 'Tis the season. Not many people get that at one seating in one setting.

If for some reason you want more pizza...the entire family can pretty much share a slice at Benny Tudino's.

Most of the fried chix in <<<Hoboken>>> are found ...in the bars. By day they are all at spin class. God will get me for that.

For Pizza I'd recommend Margherita's, a BYOB Italian cafe that gets noisy when crowded http://www.margheritascafe.com/ or
Napoli's http://www.yelp.com/biz/n...ick-oven-pizza-hoboken both have full menus and good salads and pasta and sandwiches
I'd also recommend the Elysian Cafe. A nice menu with a full bar and one of the better places on for Washington Street sidewalk seating. http://www.elysiancafe.com/
The only places I can think of offhand for fried chicken are Oddfellows by the Path train, with it's cajun menu (which you'd only consider if it wasn't anywhere near happy hour or later) or Maxwells. And while I love Maxwells for rock and roll reasons, the food can be wildly uneven. It's bar food and when it's on it's just fine, but I've had some less than okay meals there. Though it sure is fun to send kids to put money in the jukebox at Maxwells. http://maxwellsnj.com/menu.html

This is a new place in <<<Hoboken>>> It's spacious...fun...eventful (for the family early enough) and you can get your schnitzel on. Not exactly the first thing that comes to mind but it is unique. Extra special if you like beer. Eh.

That place looks terrific, thanks CC.  Glad to see beer gardens making a comeback.

Pilsener Haus created a GREAT place...from an idle old building.. So...double credit for them.

Roll out that barrel!! The first brewery in the United States...was in <<<Hoboken>>>

Movies under the stars is a free event held every Wednesday night for most of the summer. Excellent views of Manhattan and you can gather up all of the Roadfood goodies <<<Hoboken>>> has to offer...and have a picnic.

Thanks for the Hoboken movie nights link, Slugworth, uh, I mean CC!!  I've already marked some on my calendar and started mapping out places to eat!  Is it the PATH train that drops off a few blocks away from Pier A?  If so, it'd be super convenient for me to get there from World Trade.

Yes...the Pier is very very close to the Terminal. When you hit the street just walk towards the right...and your right there. Right.

I will be in the cobblestone alley behind Carlo's waiting for the Everlasting Gobstopper exchange.


Here's a <<<Hoboken>>> short film until the stars come out...

The long long history of Clam Broth House would make a good documentary.

It's a landmark. It's condemned. It's gone. It's back. It's gone.

It will be back again. Clam Broth House & <<<Hoboken>>> are like Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton.

Lee...I know you have asked about a bakery that was around called Di Bari's.

Here is a mention of it...

http://www.cookingformyfamily.net/Hoboken.php

It may not have been a family named Di Bari. San Nicola di Bari (St. Nicholas) is the Patron Saint of many...including bakers....and thieves too. So who knows.

This concludes the CCD of the day. There will be a quiz at the end of this semester.

CC,thanks for the link and the info about DiBari's. Boy do I remember their pastry. We always hit a bread store there on our Sunday morning rounds . Don't remember that name. Thanks again for the link and the trip down memory lane!

Thanks for all the suggestions! The Biergarden looks great (unfortunately I don't drink) and I love a good sausage. Well let y'all know where we went.

Enjoy your visit!!! Here's a great place for subsequent trips....

HHM has excellent exhibits & events. They will help me crack the case of Di Bari's. There must be much more to the story.

I agree that Pilsner Haus is really good. Plus there is the added bonus of the fact that street parking is fairly easy to find in that area, unlike further downtown.
 
One place that hasn't been mentioned it Piccolo's. The aren't many Old Time Hoboken places left anymore, but that's one of them. Great cheesteaks.

PS: The iconic Clam Broth House "Finger" sign is still there (now atop a building), somewhat rusty but still worth a photo.

Piccolo's Clam Bar (home of the cheesesteak of course) is fantastic!

Just be careful NOT to confuse that Piccolo's with this on Washington Street...

No no no.

Filippo's on First is another good old-school (no coal) pizza parlor...

One other old school place I just remembered about is Leo's Grandview. I haven't eaten there in about 10 years, and haven't heard a word about it in years so I just did a search. I'm amazed that they are still in business in 2012, so it might be worth a lunch or dinner stop. It's about as old school as it gets, right down to their love of a certain blue-eyed Hoboken Native who used to dine there even before he was famous.

Good old-school bar pie!


Leo's Grandevous was featured on The Rachael Ray Show during a segment with Buddy...about some of his favorite spots in <<<Hoboken>>>

Thanks for that link. I wasn't impressed with Biggies the one time I went. We were saying it should have been called "Smallies", as in the size of their clams. The ones they shucked in the video look like they were 3x the size of what we got. Maybe they've got two sizes: One size for TV shows, and one size for the rest of us.
 
But Fiore's, O...M...G !!! Heaven on a roll.

I agree with you. The notion that Hoboken is a "clam town" goes way back. Clam Broth House was est. in 1899. Biggie's est. 1946. Back in the day (way way way back) clams were something local...and very inexpensive. Not today...but the fierce (stubborn) loyalty to traditions means we gotta have the clams. Especially when they are sort of the last clam standing.

When you are a reality show star that showcases the establishment...you get the pick of the bushel or bucket.

<<<Hoboken>>> the birthplace of baseball will celebrate this Saturday with a re-enactment of the first game ever played.. It's a free event.

http://hobokenmuseum.org/...f-events/june/baseball

It wasn't exactly a close game back then...but always fun these days!
