Restaurants in Clifton, NJ

Clifton and its environs offer a bounty of Roadfood good eats, including ripper hot dogs and hamburger sliders. The former refers to a technique of deep-frying the dog to the point it literally bursts open into lengthwise fissures with a crunchy edge. With spicy sweet relish, rippers sing. Sliders are at their finest at White Manna, a diner over in Hackensack, where they’re served on a tender little potato roll with grilled onions and cheese if desired. Also in Hackensack is the very best version of a dish very common throughout the tri-state area, known to everybody else by its Entenmann’s brand name, Ultimate Crumb Cake. The truly ultimate version is the one baked by B&W Bakery, where it is referred to as heavy crumb cake, its streusel-like top actually taller than the cake below.
