White Mana Diner
A burger and fries from White Mana Diner in The Heights is a rite of passage for anyone within 20 miles of Jersey City. Built for the 1939 World’s Fair, it’s cash-only and primarily for quick counter service. Come with a twenty-dollar bill and leave with two heaping plastic bags of food, which—in addition to a burger or chicken sandwich and fries—should include onion rings and a shake. Basically, everything you could crave at a Mets game without the stadium prices.
