Local burger joint combines a Jersey classic and a Philadelphia classic


Everyone knows that New Jersey is known for its famous egg and cheese sandwich.

Philly is even more widely known as the original homeland of cheesesteak.

An innovative new burger joint in South Jersey has dared to combine the two and create something bold and new. Introducing the “pork roll cheesesteak”!

The Pork Roll Cheese Steak is the brainchild of the folks at Burgertime NJ in Audubon, New Jersey. Audubon is only a few miles from Philadelphia. This is where cultures and tastes collide.

The Pork Roll Cheese Steak is a thinly sliced ​​pork roll topped with fried onions, cherry pepper relish (sold locally as a hoagie spread), and American cheese on a hoagie roll.

They offer over a dozen different types of burgers, including a Rodeo Burger, which is topped with cheddar cheese, fried jalapeño, onion petals, bacon, and barbecue sauce.

The Pepperjawni Pizza Burger is topped with a mixture of pepperoni jam, mozzarella and provolone on garlic bread.

“Jawn” is a Philly word used for a thing, place, or person. This makes sense because I’ve never heard of pepperoni jam, which qualifies it as an ingredient I would call a jawbone.

Burgertime NJ also offers a wide and creative assortment of hot dog combos, including the SpaghettiOs Dog. You guessed right. It’s a hot dog topped with childhood favorite SpaghettiO. Choker not included.

Their “tots” selection is equally creative from their “Crab Tots” to “Cowboy Tots”. Do not judge ! You will have to try them for yourself. Bon appetit, I think.

These are the best hiking spots in New Jersey

A trip to New Jersey doesn’t have to be just the beach. Our state has incredible trails, waterfalls and lakes to enjoy.

From the Pine Barrens to the Appalachian Trail to New Jersey’s hidden gems, you have plenty of options for a great hike. Hiking is a great way to spend time outdoors and enjoy nature, plus it’s a great workout.

Before you hit the trails and explore some of the suggestions from our listeners, I have a few tips on hiking etiquette from the American Hiking Society.

If you descend and encounter an uphill hiker, pull to the side and give the uphill hiker some space. An uphill hiker has the right of way unless they stop to catch their breath.

Always stay on the trail, you may see side paths, unless marked as an official trail, avoid them. Going off the trail, you risk damaging the ecosystems around the trail, the plants and wildlife that live there.

You also don’t want to disturb any wildlife you encounter, just keep your distance from the wildlife and continue hiking.

Cyclists must yield to hikers and horses. Hikers should also give in to horses, but I’m not sure how many horses you’ll encounter on New Jersey trails.

If you plan to take your dog on your hike, they must be on a leash and be sure to clean up all pet waste.

Finally, pay attention to the weather, if the trail is too muddy, it’s probably best to save your hike for another day.
