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

    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.
