I used to be a big fan of JP MacGrady's, and went there regularly to get their super-hot "kryptonite" wings and burgers. Â Over the last year or so, though, they've made a bunch of changes that have driven me away. Â They ditched kryptonite wings, leaving "hot" as hot as it gets. Â It's not that hot. Â They changed their fries, taking them from very good to just okay. Â Their staff turnover seems to have gotten very high. Â I used to recognize waitstaff pretty often, and now it's always someone new.
Still, the burgers are very good and they have a good selection of beer. Â Their happy hour prices are good. Â I avoid weekends, because the place gets loud and crowded.
Take a "Fat Sandwich" from a Rutgers Grease Truck and 'burgify' it. Imagine 50 variations of said burger. Imagine a 6 hour happy hour where it's 2 for the price of 1 ($10). And it comes with fries.
This is JP MacGradys.
This is #madness.
Down any of that with a $7 pitcher containing 6+ different kinds of beer and you'll be wondering why you don't move to lil ole Bethlehem right now or why they don't move to NYC, up the prices and make it rain.
This place is BANGIN'. You get free stuff just for walking in...there's a popcorn machine on the way in...which means you also get free stuff on the way out.
Live bands, pool table and a shuffle board.
Why didn't I give them a 5!? It is rare that I bestow such an honor on anyone...also, I think it took like 30 minutes for us to get our food.
I know the happy hour I mentioned is probably popular and ya'll get backed up, HOWEVER, you should know this and prep for that.
I'm no master cook, but you should have several people garnishing the burgers after some dude/dudette puts beef patty upon bun.
Like one dude/dudette who puts nachos on the burgers or lettuce or KitKats, etc. depending on what was ordered.
If I come back and my order comes out in a timely fashion I will give this place a 5, walk into the kitchen and kiss the cook regardless of Â their race, color, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age or national origin.
