We are open for Indoor Dining & Take Out

COVID-19 has changed this industry in an unforeseen way. We were closed for 71 days, with everyday trying to figure out how we can make our 88-year-old business adapt to the “new normal.” We are trying our best, to accommodate our loyal customers, with that being said, the safety of our employees and customers is our top priority. Rules and guidelines are changing daily and we are trying to keep up as best as we can. Below are some safety measures we have taken:
• We have removed all menus.
• All surfaces will be wiped and sanitized after each use
• All condiments are sanitized after each use
• Hand Sanitizer is provided at the entrance of restrooms
• Masks must be worn to enter the building and while not seated at bar or table
• All customers must wear masks when entering building to use restroom
• No parties over 8 (It’s the LAW)
• We will not have table time limits (for the time being), but we do ask you be aware of your fellow customers who are looking to have the dining experience you did.
Thank you,
The LaMotta Family

If for any reason you do not feel comfortable dining with us, you can always choose our take- out option.

“Krug's is the iconic burger tavern and legendary dive you've been hearing about. It's hard to mention Newark and the Ironbound without talking about Krug's Tavern. In business since 1932, and found on Wilson Ave., a street now predominantly known for its many Brazilian and Portuguese bakeries, cafes, groceries, and restaurants, Krug's still stands out like a delicious sore thumb. There's not much to say about Krug's without sounding redundant. They've timelessly been voted as one of the best burgers in NJ, with good reason.

Called the perfect burger, I assure you it's an experience you won't forget. The burger patty, if you can even call it a patty, is in itself something to behold. It's more of an abnormally huge, hunky, juicy, DELICIOUS glob of meat, scantily held together by its buns.

The reason for Krug's success? Consistency over the years. A perfect burger is only as good as its ingredients, and that means a great local butcher (Ray's Enterprises in Newark). If you haven't been to Krug's yet, shame on you! No search for the best burger in NJ is complete without paying Krug's Tavern a visit.”

The burgers live up to the hype!  My friends and I frequent this place when we want huuuuuge burgers and a drink on the side lol. Like mentioned, the burgers are HUGE and it comes with a whole pickle and other condiments which is great.

Great place to grab a drink and a burger!”

“I mean... this place is almost legendary!! If you're from the area and never visited, you're missing out! If you're not, I would recommend you stop by. They serve by far one of the best flat top burgers I've had. They're simple and flavorful! This place doesn't need a lengthy review- just go check it out for yourself."

“Best Burgers in Newark or Jersey as they claim ... WELL they are dead on!
I really enjoyed their burger. i orderd the KRUG'S BACON CHEESEBURGER which was amazing.
Cooked perfectly. I love going to places like this to get a nice big, fat, juicy burger.

All is needed now is for Guy Fieri to come down and try their famous burgers!!"
