Celebrating National Hamburger Day on May 28th in Jersey City


Cooped up in our Beacon apartments these past few weeks, many of us have been yearning for the nice weather and summers perks that come with the upcoming season. While the beaches will open this Memorial Day, we know they’ll be crowded and it will still be safer to stay at home in Jersey City. But don’t fret! Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, and with summer comes a treasured American tradition – BBQing – and May 28th offers a whole new reason to celebrate – National Hamburger Day!

If you want to take advantage of this special day with a delicious dinner of a burger and fries, order it from some of these top-notch eateries located throughout the Jersey City area. Beef, turkey, salmon, vegan, you name it… these local burger joints have something for everyone, and they deliver right to your apartment!

Dark Side of the Moo – There are tons of fast food places in in Jersey City where you can grab a delicious cheeseburger, but we guarantee you, there is only one place where you can grab a kangaroo burger. Say what!? That’s right, Dark Side of the Moo, Jersey City’s only exotic meat restaurant. While their daily specials vary, on any given day you can find alligator, yak, bison, and yes, kangaroo, on their burger menu. For traditionalists, they also have plenty of beef varieties, and for vegetarians, they even have a vegan menu! There’s something for everyone at Dark Side of the Moo, making it the perfect melting pot for this American holiday.

Five Guys – A national favorite, and for a good reason, Five Guys serves up the traditional, greasy, delicious hamburgers we all know and love. You can get a regular hamburger delivered to your Beacon apartment, or even a triple stacker with cheese, just make sure not to forget a bag of their amazing Cajun fries!
