Best New Jersey Cheap restaurants

New Jersey has many "Cheap Eateries" or inexpensive restaurants that stand out as having good value.


A cheap eatery is defined as a casual restaurant that offers good value food and fast service without all the trimmings of expensive decor, a view, gourmet food, or wait staff that panders, or very few of the qualities normally found in a fine dining restaurant.




Many of these inexpensive restaurants are family restaurants that welcome kids, and include diners, fast food chains, and local family run eateries.

Rutt's Hut
Rutt's Hut Hot Dogs, New Jersey
If you don't mind a truck stop atmosphere, not having to dress up, and enjoy deep fried hot dogs, with a beer, this is the place for you. Rutt's Hut is a place from out of the past. And the prices for beer and food can't be beat!

White Manna's
White Manna Hamburgers, Hackensack, NJWhite Manna's has become a legend in New Jersey for tasty hamburgers. You don't come to this diner for their decor (it's grimy, basic, and old time diner style) or their large selection of deli sandwiches, and certainly not for the diet conscious. You come here for their very good, inexpensive food.
