My Favorite Restaurants in Jersey City

Over the weekend, Joe's parents visited us in Jersey City. We've been here for over six months now so  of course we wanted to bring them to some of our favorite restaurants. This made me think about the places we love to dine and I figured I'd share.

Razza: This was the first spot we took Joe's parents to--their pizza was named the best pizza in New York in New Jersey! Their brick oven pizza was great but their bread and butter really stole the show. The bread and butter are both house-made and perfect!

Taqueria Downtown: As California transplants, we can be picky when it comes to Mexican food. Taqueria Downtown is decent--we like the guac and tacos. This spot is no frills but upbeat. It's a small joint so it's usually packed but the service is quick. 

Left Bank Burger Bar: If you're looking for a casual spot for burgers and beer, this place is for you. We've taken both sets of our parents here and everyone has really enjoyed it. I'm pretty easy to please with burgers and get their bankrupt burger--basically a cheeseburger. Joe really likes their ahi burger. We hope to hit up their happy hour soon!

Brownstone Diner: Pancake lovers rejoice. Joe and I love this spot for stacks of pancakes on a snowy weekend morning. This diner has been around Jersey City for ages and offers tons of delightful breakfast options. Be prepared to wait a bit for your table though. 

Porta: Another pizza joint. Right by the Grove Street Path, you'll find this delicious pizzeria. I love the ambiance and their quality food.

Wonder Bagels: For my bagel lovers: Wonder Bagels is better than some of my New York staples. Their bagels are huge and fluffy. Joe also really likes their steak and egg breakfast burritos.

Bang Cookies: These cookies are so good and you can order them online! Free local delivery on orders of 4+.  

Any spots I should add to the list? I'd love some suggestions!
