Juniors Papaya Grill – Doomed
Couldn’t stand the heat of the kitchen?
See what once was – after the jump (try not to cry).
Did you know that Junior’s Papaya now has a breakfast menu on weekends?
Looks pretty good to me, and will have to try it this Sunday.
See MENU PDF HERE.
Has anyone tried it? Any good?
Hoboken411 was the “second customer served” yesterday over at Juniors Papaya Grill, Hoboken’s latest restaurant!
We have a winner!
I was so excited and tempted to publish my initial review at lunch yesterday as I was eating the delicious sliders, it was hard to contain myself. But I was able to wait! (No pics of the burgers because I absolutely inhaled them. Fantastic! Especially for a first day order.)
Anyway, Juniors Papaya is our newest “grease pit,” and is well worth trying. Dennis, one of the owners, had told me there was a bit of discussion whether to make the place a little more high-end, or a fast eat & go place like it is now. I think they made the right choice. Burgers, hot dogs, cheese steaks (will be trying them today – they claim the best in Hoboken – Can’t wait!), fries, and other grilled sandwiches. Various fried appetizers, and a custom tossed salad with your choice of toppings (for the health conscious – or closet eater.)
They also have unique fountain drinks, such as Papaya Juice, and Orange Creamsicle (sp?) which I tried… tasted just like one. A bit sweet, but would be refreshing over ice on a hot summer day. See full menu further down.
Did I say I LOVED the sliders yet? Tasty angus beef, on a toasted bun with cheese, sauteed onions and a couple pickles. PERFECT, and just enough (even without fries.) I’m giddy with burger love. I think burgers will replace pizza for me (at least for the next month or two.)
The interior wasn’t complete when I went in, as they still had to pick up the customized artwork from the city. They’re open 7 days a week, and till 3am on Friday’s and Saturday’s. My bet is this will be the #1 late night eatery for a LONG time in Hoboken. Hopefully they can handle the rush.
Overall, great first impressions, friendly staff, and the owner was accommodating and helpful. Welcome to the neighborhood, Juniors!!
