Dual Diner Delights

Where Passaic Street meets Hackensack Avenue. Home to one slider burger mini palace – White Manna.
Rivaling it’s former sister location in Jersey City – a single “n’d” moniker of the same name - what began as a stand at the 1939 New York World’s Fair morphed into a 15x30' slice of vintage diner heaven.
A single whiff into an invisible fog of burger grease carries you to a half-moon shaped counter overlooking the cook who slaps down meatball-sized ground chuck beef onto a sizzling griddle.
Flattening the meat with a few slaps of the back of a spatula, the meat is topped with thinly sliced onions and American cheese - according to preference - and nestled into small potato rolls. No orders are ever written down at Manna, nor forgotten, where a single cook often manages over a dozen burgers on one tiny griddle at once. Served up on paper-thin plates, these burgers pack flavor, juiciness and originality that only White Manna can bring you.
Add a side of fries (with cheese!) fountain soda (coke,please!)pile on ketchup and pickles and take your first bite towards burger nirvana.
