60 Second Review: Napoli’s burgers!

Napoli’s Pizza in Hoboken adds burgers to make everyone happy!

You ever get stuck in a debate about where to eat? Half the group may opt for pizza, while the other half may want some burgers and fries. If you go to a bar, you might get a decent burger, but a semi-good pie. In order to get a great pizza, you have to visit a genuine Italian brick oven pizzeria to get that true authentic taste and texture – but no burgers. Napoli’s Pizza (1118 Washington St.) solved that problem recently – by adding a burgers, fries and onion rings to their lineup!

60 Second Review: Napoli’s burger & onion rings

First, it was very gracious of Napoli’s to even think about adding the convenience of burgers, fries and onion rings to their menu. They already make one of the best pies in town – so they didn’t really have the need to do such a thing.

To put it to the test, I ordered a simple cheeseburger and onion rings. I wasn’t anticipating gourmet.

  • For starters, the onion rings were quite voluminous. Not overly gummy or breaded, and had the flavor I’d expect in a tasty deep fried onion slice. Up there as one of the better offerings in town already.
  • The burger wasn’t massive – but it was beefy enough to be satisfying. They garnish it with lettuce, tomato, red onion and your choice of cheese. The bun held the meat well (I just took a bite and removed the bread to stay as true to the low-carb lifestyle as possible.) One improvement I’d make is if they asked how I wanted it cooked. It came out medium to medium well, whereas I would have ordered medium rare. Next time.

For $9.95 I felt it was a fair enough value. A few bucks more than some places, a few bucks less than others. Average price, I guess.

Tip: An interesting curve to ordinary dipping sauce, inquire if you can get some of their vodka sauce on the side. Very nice!

Call Napoli’s at (201)216-0900 to order, or ask other questions about their menu or daily specials. Enjoy!

    Damn their pizza is good. My wife is a bit of a pizza snob and even she agrees they have the best pie in Hoboken. Sorry to say I have not tasted it in a bit of time and will not be trying the burgers……

    I promised myself I would not return to this place after what I feel was taking advantage after Sandy. Like a lot of us, I was on a line for food, ony to find they charged me $12 for a cold, half take out portion of ziti. The person in front of me was turned away because he only had $7 on him!

    I’d like to note, as we all know, many other establishments realized this was not the time to make profit…it was an obligation to help!

      They make a decent pie, but not the best. I did find their pizzas getting smaller and smaller prior to Sandy and after witnessing the event you describe, they are on my banned list.[quote comment=”221053″]Damn their pizza is good.

        I have to agree. Last time I went with some friends I was disappointed, and could tell the quality was not as good as it used to be. I have started going to San Guissepe’s and so far their quality is great.[quote comment=”221055″]They make a decent pie, but not the best.

        Who do you recommend otherwise? I think Napoli’s has improved a lot as they’ve matured. The pies fill the boxes. A bit light on the toppings, but that is the style. Prevents gorging. Enjoyable at a calm pace.[quote comment=”221055″]They make a decent pie, but not the best.

    Sorry…gotta go with Benny Tudino’s for great tasting pizza… crust and sauce is the key.. I am a baker’s daughter and my grandfather made pizza when he retired from the bakery.. Opened a small place that made the best pizza ever in my hometown of Pittsburgh… so searching for taste close to his … haven’t really come close. But the quality is good at Tudino’s.
