Best burger you can order in New Jersey — or is it?
Once again The Daily Meal named the best burger in every state, and the simple slider from historic White Manna in Hackensack is tops in New Jersey.
If you've never been, think small sliders like from White Castle but even more delicious. Thin, grilled to perfection on a flattop along with onions and thrown onto a potato roll.
White Manna has been around since 1939. The first location was the one in Jersey City which is still there and open 24 hours a day, but the one named best by The Daily Meal is the location in Hackensack.
So there you have it. The best burger in New Jersey is one from White Manna.
