Self-isolation has its drawbacks, but this past Saturday I ate my first Judice Inn burger in the past two months. And it was like getting a comforting hug from an old friend. Very safe and convenient with curbside pick-up, all within 15 minutes of placing my order by phone from home.
This is a homegrown business that has endured for over 70 years. Brothers Alcide and Marc Judice opened this burger joint in 1947, and it has stood the test of time. Literally. Not a thing has changed in all those years, and that’s just the way the loyal crowd that packs the place wants it.
Some out-of-towners miss the point about Judice Inn – just a simple burger with a thick slice of onion all wrapped up in white paper with an ice-cold Coca-Cola in the little green bottle. It’s culinary perfection. (Tip: Order a bag of Zapp’s Crawtator potato chips because they don’t serve fries. Not ever.)
