Rossi's Bar & Grill Trenton NJ

We went over to Rider University for a sports event tonight but stopped at Rossi's in Trenton to sample their well renowned burgers. The burger was very good but more on that later.

Rossi's is located deep in the "burg", that is the Chambersburg section. it is a landmark in that it is a throwback to taverns of years past. Full of nostalgia, everyone knows each other and our server sat down to chat with all of her tables.

On to the food. We both ordered cheeseburgers made with cheddar cheese, wife also had fries, I sampled the coleslaw.
The burgers are HUGE, were cooked to perfect medium rare, were juicy and had a nice grill flavor. Not much char but good grill notes. Roll was a toasted kaiser roll.
The steak fries were crispy, flavorful and not at all greasy. The coleslaw was standard fare.
My wife asked how big were the burgers as she can sometimes handle a 8 oz burger but was overmatched with this one.
Server told us they are not weighed but was a "handful". The chef has some huge hand :))

So the inevitable question is, how good are Rossi's cheeseburgers. If I had to rate Boom, Barnacle Bills and Rossi's, I give the edge overall to Boom with Rossi's second and Barnacle Bills third but all three are worth having.
As far as value is concerned Rossi's is the clear winner. This tasty monster of a burger is $5.95.
Rossi's has a website but does not seem to be working. If you go here are some details.
