The Landmark
259 W. Mount Pleasant Avenue
Livingston; 973-533-978y;

Hours: Mon–Wed, 11:30 am–11 pm; Thurs–Sat, 11:30 am–midnight; Sun, 1–11 pm. Bar until 2 am daily.

Price: $

Style: Roomy wood-plank booths, tables and bar fill a little red 1882 stagecoach stop now known for its burgers. Service is quick and efficient, a game is always on, and the crowd is friendly.

Don’t Miss: Fried green beans with cucumber wasabi ($6.75) are so good you’ll want a second order. Buffalo wings ($7.50) are dependable, though watch out: The “angry” sauce is fearsome. Fried calamari ($10) are plump, crunchy and generously portioned. Tender ribs ($11.75, half rack; $18.75 full) have a tangy-sweet sauce. The burgers come in two sizes (quarter-pound, $5.25; half-pound, $7.25). Toppings include several cheeses, frizzled onions, pizza sauce, mushrooms, jalapeños and bacon, 75 cents each. Order deli-style sandwiches—pastrami or corned beef ($7.75), liverwurst ($6.75) and salami ($7.50)—on Russian rye, white, whole wheat, or in a wrap. Turn your pick into a sub with lettuce, tomato, onion, oil and vinegar and your choice of cheese for an extra $2.50. Pizzas ($10.50–$16.25) can be ordered traditional style or on whole-grain flatbread. Toppings range from customary to creative, the latter including Thai chicken with scallions, chicken fajita, bruschetta and white clam.

Heads Up: The Landmark offers a handful of salads, with or without meat, a veggie burger made from black beans ratcheted up with chipotle, and a salmon burger with arugula and honey Dijon dressing.

The Scoop: Like the restaurant, the parking lot is small and often packed. Some street parking is available. A small patio with a couple of tables hugs the parking lot.
