This is our second time to Rossi’s new location in Hamilton, but our first burger at the new spot (we’d eaten them for years in Trenton). That’s Rossi’s biggest claim to fame, the Rossiburger. And those burgers have not changed a bit. They are still as bulbous and massive as ever, still served on a Kaiser roll, and are still under-seasoned, a small flaw that can be mostly corrected for at the table.
Rossi’s burgers won’t blow you away with beefy savor; these are not done in the modern burger-geek tradition where the mix of component cuts, say brisket and short rib, is specially selected and ground each morning. No, these are old-fashioned clods of cow formed from a grind probably not far removed from what you might get at the supermarket for your backyard cookout. Be sure to order them no more than medium for maximum juiciness.
Rossi’s has expanded their burger menu to include all sorts of modern exotica. You’ll find burgers topped with pork roll or broccoli rabe, fried eggs or chipotle sauce.2110 Whitehorse-Mercerville Road Hamilton NJ 08619 609-890-2004 Rossi’s Bar & Grill’s Website Rossi’s Bar & Grill on Facebook
