Onion rings are my go-to side dish if I'm breaking the normal routine of healthy eating.

Everybody does fries, but I find them somewhat boring. I prefer my potatoes in a hash, baked or mashed.

If I'm looking for a cheesesteak or a Reuben (one of the best in Jersey is at Tiger's Tale in Montgomery) then onion rings are my go-to.

Tiger's Tale has become a great meeting spot. Casual, local, with good beer on tap, and perfect bar food. They have a great drunken clam dish, but that's another post.

There are some outstanding places around the Garden State for the perfect accompaniment to your "cheat" dinner.

Here are another four that you need to check out this weekend:

White Rose Hamburgers in Highland Park

Bovine Burgers in Jamesburg

Urban Burger in Cranford

Meatheadz Cheesesteak in Lawerenceville
