NFT: Lunch Spot Near Met Life Stadium

Larry in Pencilvania : 8/12/2019 3:19 pm
So in my quest to convert my girlfriend to a Giants fan from an Eagles fan, I'm taking her and her friend to tomorrow's open practice at MetLife. Since we're coming from PA I need a few restaurant suggestions for a sit down lunch. The only restrictions are no fast food, no Mexican and no Tic Tock Diner.


Otherwise thanks in advance

Try Zinburger on Rt 3 in Clifton.
Olive Garden, route 3 in Secaucus.

Less than two miles for some scrumptious Italian.

Mangia.

There is a Medieval Times close to the stadium, that is the reference.

West on route 3 you'll have some options in the same complex as Zinburger. Tick Tock diner is an option. Head north on Rt 17 and there are options along there

Olive Garden...scrumptious Italian?? You need to broaden your Italian food palet
Yeah, good luck. Met Life is in the middle of nowhere, if

you can be in the middle of nowhere up here. The towns around it aren't exactly known for good food, but you could try East Rutherford.

Get a couple of rippers, a dipped cheeseburger, and an order of cheese fries. You may need to schedule a stress echo with your cardiologist afterwards, but it's delicious nonetheless.
They just redid Park and Orchard

Itís now a Mediterranean Restaurant called Elia. Food and drinks are great. Bar scene is great.
There are a couple good restaurants in Rutherford very close  
bhill410 : 8/12/2019 8:11 pm : link
And right over the track two decent bars. You can get to stadium from there in under ten probably.

Ive only gotten the ripper and some kind of fries before. What is the dipped cheeseburger you speak of?
Harold's in Lynhurst on the other side of Route 3 by Route 17.  
Phil in Joisey : 8/13/2019 12:47 am : link
Deli like the Carnegie used to be in NYC.
Best diner in the area is Park West Diner on Route 46 about ten minutes west of the stadium. Those who suggest that
Tick Tock has seen better days are correct.

It's just their standard issue greasy-spoon-style cheeseburger that they run through gravy (bun and all) before serving. Might sound gross but it's delicious.

Steve's is excellent, a throwback to the days of Taylor, Carson and Banks.
