NJ Waiters delivers Five Guys

8/26/2009:

Five Guys, Chicken Galore and more…

The other day, I published a poll about how you order your food for delivery here in Hoboken.

One thing I left out was this new Hoboken delivery service called NJ Waiters.

While it may seem similar to the other online services, they do offer Five Guys Burgers and Fries. For the $3.00 delivery charge – NJ Waiters basically places your order, picks it up and brings it to you. The website, while not necessarily the most modern – is functional enough.

You can also get your deep fried chicken – from Chicken Galore over in Jersey City as well. Other Hoboken restaurants include: Ali Baba, Cafe Michelina, Cluck U Chicken, Crepe Grill, Healthy for Life, Juniors Papaya, the new Signature Kitchen, Sushi House and The Madison Bar and Grill.

I tried it yesterday for a Five Guys order – and the delivery was quick (under 30 minutes). They also plan on adding more restaurants in the future.

because it will increase the price of your burger by 75% and the illegals always steal stuff from our parking garage once they are in the building. we have had 5-6 on the tape system in the last 2 yrs prowling around after a delivery and stealing tools, and bikes and packages in the lobby.

I love five guys, why not pay the delivery charge and tip the guy? why risk getting a parking ticket

I usually tip at minimum $3 per delivery. I’m not paying $6 extra for a burger and fries when I (and probably 90% of Hoboken) can walk 10 minutes to the store.

Most other Hoboken delivery is two parts – one convenience and two no extra cost. I’ll order from any of those places before I use this service and if i’m dying for a burger, I will walk there.

I try to walk not only to streamline the budget but also to feel a bit better about the calories in this kind of food! One less car trip out there.

Hasn’t every delivery business eventually gone under?

Is this service any different than SeamlessWeb (i.e. online food-ordering broker) or are they actually staffing the delivery people? I’ve been in Ali Baba and Cluck U before while deliverymen were coming/going and was both times under the impression that they were employed directly by the restaurant.

It would be worth it for Chicken Galore. Try driving to JC for dinner and then finding a place to park when you get back.

I don’t get the nostalgia for Chicken Galore. I ate there, and it is like many Hoboken restaurants – average at best.

Of course you wouldn’t “get the nostalgia” if you thought it “average at best”. There are others that differ. These are opinions here, there are no definitie correct answers. Ya know, sort of like horse racing. If the same horse always won, what would be the use of going to the races.
