White manna (with two N’s) wins!

The new show Food Feuds recently came to Jersey to settle the question of which White Manna is better? Jersey City with one N or Hackensack with two N’s? The outcome to me was never in doubt, but it was intersting to see the history of the two and the differences between the two burgers. I didn’t know that there were 5 WM’s I always thought it was just these two (the others all went under). As for the burgers, the biggest difference is that Hackensack uses a small potato bun which is about the same size as the burger, while Jersey City uses a full size bun which dwarfs the mini burger. To me this was always a turnoff: too much bun. As for the rest of the burger, hackensack is about 1.6 ozs and has no seasoning and has tons of sliced yellow onions. Jersey City’s are smaller, has a higher fat content, uses salt and pepper seasoning and uses diced white onions.

Gotta stop by tomorrow and congratulate the winner. Course it might take 2 hours to get my order.

So which one is better? Hackensack or Jersey City?

Food network show to decide which White Man(n)a is the better one.

I’ve eaten in both, but I frequent the one in Hackensack much more often. Obviously living 2 miles away makes it more convenient, but I just think it’s got better food. It does one thing: burgers. The one in Jersey City is almost like a trucker diner as it has all manner of food. Plus they serve the little burgers on full size buns, which if you ask me, is silly.

What do you guys think: Take part in the poll and tell us why!
