Tippy's Charcoal Hearth-Jersey City NJ long RIP Wed, 07/27/05 3:01 PM (permalink)
Anyone ever go here? I grew up on their burgers, cooked to juicy perfection on a charcoal hearth that was behind the counter. Tip's was open since the 50's I guess and at one time had an ice cream stand attached to the side of it, which later became Tippy's pizza. It was a great place to get a char grilled burger, nice crisp fries & a delicious slice. My family ate there once a week--good food, good memories.

    I used to go there with my brothers and sisters on our way to ST Ann's on Sunday. I still remember the taste I was sorry to see it go almost as sorry as the Texas weiner joint on Hutton and Central.

              Tippy's was on Kennedy (Hudson going way way back) Boulevard a few blocks north of Manhattan Ave.

                  Someone mentioned that a Goodyear is @ that location now. I know there are plenty of used card lots on that strip...but I never noticed a Goodyear.

                  I'll drive that way to see what I see when heading to the Holland Tunnel on Tuesday.

                  Mister S & Tippy's were not too far apart in distance!

                      I lived on Columbia Ave in the middle to late 50's on Friday night if I wanted to see my girlfriend I had to go to bingo at St. Ann's and after that we went to Tippy's. I used to hang out at the Ritz pool hall on Central Ave, and Charles Street..

                        I'm happy to report that Bingo is still indeed played @ St. Ann's.

                            My father told me there were sharks living under that ice. Learn to skate quick or be a snack.

                              The rink was wooden floor and you skated to the music of a loud organ.

                                It was an ice rink in the 70s (I'm a youngster in Roadfood years) & now it's a plumbing supply showroom.

                                My parents remember the roller rink & skated there before the sharks moved in.

                                  Between 1956 and 1959 to get to the Roller Rink we had to take a bus from Jersey City Heights to Journal Square and then another bus to Bayonne. And without a cell phone.

                                    I loved the old Jersey City buses!

                                    My Grandmother didn't drive so when she would take me to Canton on Journal Square we would take the Broadway bus & then catch an old-school Bergen Ave. bus (we'd wait for an old cute bus if there was a newer circa-70s bus leaving first).

                                    The Bergen Ave. line was orange...and the old buses were adorable.


                                    Which buses did you take to get to City Line?

                                      I believe they were both the new ones, when I lived in Hoboken I took the orange #5 to Journal Square.

                                        <<<Hoboken>>> has changed a little over the years but for sure it's always been & will always be a place for fantastic food.

                                          I miss Canton. Just saying today how I can't find any Chinese restaurant with spare ribs as good as were served at Canton. Same with the Old School chow mein and roast pork fried rice.

                                            If I could have a wish for one restaurant to be back...it would be Canton.

                                            I was always in awe of the atmosphere...& the waiters used to bring me a "wink wink" ( from my Nanny) Mai Tai when I was little.

                                              One of the best pizza place was Balbo's 415 Jefferson street I recall they had a wood burning oven.

                                                <<<Hoboken>>> has changed a little over the years but for sure it's always been & will always be a place for fantastic food.
