At New Jersey’s biggest university, these sandwiches are the king of the food scene. Long plush rolls are filled with entire meals. From cheeseburgers and ketchup to chicken fingers and fries. If you’re a student at Rutgers or just lucky to be in the area, there’s one spot that’s famous for serving them. For many, it feels like Rutgers was never without the fat sandwich. But it wasn’t until a collection of on-campus food trucks called the Grease Trucks started serving it in the 70s, that the fat sandwich truly became a rite of passage. RU Hungry? was one of those trucks. And today it’s the only one left, selling up to 700 fat sandwiches on a busy day, at its brick-and-mortar location. Fat sandwiches are famously overstuffed with fried foods.
The Belmont was established in 1967 and is a classic red-sauce joint. You go for Stretch’s Chicken Savoy. You go for the Shrimp Beeps. You go to feel part of a different era. The Belmont Tavern is a Jersey culinary classic. If you are a foodie and from the Garden State, it is a necessary rite of passage! I recommend anyone with an appreciation for old-school, classic Italian food—or anyone who enjoys food history—to give it a try. Be sure to bring cash—they’re cash only—and get there early as they don’t take reservations.
