Best places to eat in Jersey City

You're gonna get hungry in Jersey City, right? So what does that have to do with booking a car rental? Hey! A cheap car rental means two things: it means you can drive to a nice restaurant (or just to the local bar); and it means you will have some extra money in your pocket to try out some great Jersey City food!

So crank up your rental car's engine and drive with your business associates or family over to Porto Leggero – it's the top-rated place to have dinner in all of Jersey City! An Italian restaurant with great food and service can't be beat! 

But hey – maybe you prefer something different? Check out Soul Flavors, another great restaurant that's gotten great reviews!

Or do you just want to have a beer and a burger? If so, get your designated driver into the rental car and head over to Park Tavern. This friendly, comfortable bar is quite possibly the best place to have a good time in Jersey City!
