Waited forever to have table cleaned .Longer wait for service. Longer wait for 2 beers. Set your hair on fire for eating utensils. One hour plus to cook two Hamburgers that looked and tasted like a wallet .What a joke !!

Stopped in for some takeout the night before a next-day flight out. Neighborhood is interesting but don't let it stop you from going there. We ordered a burger and the bar pie pizza and fed 3 of us with leftovers! Added a beer while waiting...More

Kurg's has been around for years and years. The food has always been good and the cheeseburger are the best ever! A visit to the Ironbound would not be complete without sampling some great food at Krug's.
