New Burger Spot Coming to Jersey City

A Fort Lee-based burger joint is expanding to Jersey City at 488 Central Avenue in the former Firehouse Blazing Pizza outpost. The pizzeria shut its doors in April 2021 after serving the Jersey City Heights community for three years. Now, Marty’s Burgers is the new restaurant on the block.

About Firehouse Blazing Pizza

Debuting in 2018, Firehouse Blazing Pizza wasn’t your ordinary pizzeria. The shop was designed to replicate the inside of a real firehouse – think, authentic uniforms and tools as decor, and real photos of local firefighters, including the owner, Felix Santiago. Felix made history as the first Latino Captain of the Hoboken Fire Department.

The menu featured a variety of pizza flavors, which included GF and vegan options, French fries, pasta, sandwiches, and more.

Firehouse Blazing Pizza closed its doors this past April, Jersey Digs reported.

What to Expect Next

This restaurant, somewhat new to the Fort Lee scene as well, serves up burgers, a chicken sandwich, a grilled cheese, a griddle dog, mac and cheese, and a variation of fries, as well as desserts like a chocolate milkshake.

Patrons can build their own burgers using the five-and-a-half-ounce beef patty, and choosing add-ons like avocado, smoked bacon, sauteed mushrooms, and fried egg.

The classic burgers include a “single” and double”, and the signature burgers include creations like The Impossible Burger, The Rise N’ Shine that has a breakfast sandwich feel, and The BBQ, which features sharp cheddar, jalapenos, smoked bacon, and frizzled onions.

French fries are offered with classic seasoning, Old Bay, disco fries, salt and vinegar, and truffle parmesan.

Marty’s Burgers has not announced an official opening date for its new Jersey City storefront. To stay in the know with the burger shop, follow it on Instagram at @martysfortlee. We will keep you updated as more details unfold.
