    It's an Irish place... Get the Irish fries. Lots of melted cheese and bacon, you won't regret it.

    Moe is a one-man, bartending machine. He'll hook you up if you're a regular or tip well.Stones throw away from Rutgers-Newark campus. Average prices on drinks. Great burgers.

    A Rutgers-Newark institution. Great chicken fingers and awesome lava fries (with hot sauce). PBRs are super cheap, too.
