I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Jersey knows food. Want to find a great breakfast buffet or the best taylor ham sandwich? We’ve got you covered. Need a sub sandwich or classic hot dog for lunch? Jersey is your place. And don’t even get me started on those fantastic Boardwalk snacks. But what about late night eating? Can New Jersey cure your hunger pains after midnight? But of course! Check this out.
There are hundreds of diners in New Jersey to choose from, and most of them are open 24 hours. If late night cravings are calling your name, head to your local Jersey diner and order just about anything you can think of. The best of the best? Check out The Tick Tock Diner on Rt.3 in Clifton on your way back from New York City, or the Park West Diner in Little Falls. Both are great places to stop after a late night out on the town with friends. If you’ve never been to a Jersey diner after dark, I highly suggest a plate of french fries with gravy. Yes, I said gravy.
Delicious Heights – Bedminster
Just off of Rt. 287 in Bedminster, you’ll find Delicious Heights. Open till midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, Delicious Heights is known for its cozy atmosphere and Manhattan-style dining. Guests can eat in or carry out. Try their calamari – you won’t be sorry you did! A word of warning, though- Delicious Heights can get very crowded, especially on weekends. If their lot is full, do not park on the side streets, as Bedminster police are known to ticket and tow.
The Cuban – Hoboken
The Cuban on Washington Street in Hoboken offers a late night menu Thursday through Saturday (11pm to 1am). Not only is the food awesome but the place is totally unique, with an old Havana feel and tons of authentic latino cocktails to choose from. Take mass transit or park in one of Hoboken’s parking garages for easy access.
Little Town – Hoboken
Albie and Chris Manzo of the Real Housewives of New Jersey , branched out and opened Little Town (New Jersey) on Sinatra Drive in Hoboken. Open till 1am Tuesday through Saturday, Little Town offers a host of ‘Jersey food,’ from sliders to hot dogs. But don’t go there without trying their fried ‘mutz’ (mozzarella). Heavenly!
