Wagyu beef burger restaurant opens its first NJ location
Kings of Kobe, a burger restaurant that uses American Wagyu beef in its burgers and hot dogs, has opened its first New Jersey location in Jersey City.
Wagyu beef refers to specific breeds of cattle that were first raised in Japan. They were later imported and, in some cases, crossbred in the U.S. Kobe refers to beef made from a particular strain of those cattle. The Wagyu served at Kings of Kobe is raised domestically.
The Kings of Kobe, according to their website, started as an upscale hot dog cart in Manhattan; later they opened a brick-and-mortar location in Hell's Kitchen and now in Jersey City. They are known for their towering burger creations and “frenzy” of hot dog toppings speaks to the Kings of Kobe core: unadulterated, delicious fun.

"Kings of Kobe Jersey City boasts an expansive dining room and island bar area that extends outside into a cozy, heated patio," said a spokesperson, "with an elevated ambiance. The interior, brimming with colorful accents, includes works by graffiti artist and New York legend, Hektad."
In addition to the 13 signature burgers and six hot dogs, they also sell Wagyu steaks (and cocktails).
