White Rose Diner
Hours may not be accurate
Also known as the White Rose System, this retro, counter-seat only diner in Linden is widely known for its unfussy American classics. Among typical diner fare, White Rose doles out an incredible pork roll sandwich (or, to North Jersey natives -- Taylor ham, egg, and cheese) and one of the state's best burgers: a thinly pressed 75/25 beef patty, pressed with onions and flanked by two rounds of crusty bread. Everything at this ultra-casual mainstay is prepared on an ancient, well-worn griddle.
