    The Hot Grill is across from Nash Park in Clifton, New Jersey. It is a meeting place that most of the residents of Clifton have been to at one time or another. You find people of all ages in here. Many of the workers at the Hot Grill are the smae men that have been there for the past 40 years ... Patsy, Bill, Carmen and a few of the others are familiar sights there. They remember your name and make you feel so at home.

    Favorite Dish: The Chili Hot Dogs are likely the best I've ever had. And the french fries with gravy are excellent too.

    Corrado's draws people from all around to come shop for food. If you are looking for unusual fruits & vegetables, meats (I've seen goat head there) fish of all varieties & all different kinds of cheeses ... this is the place to go. The meats are fresh & reasonably priced too. There are all different kinds of ethnic foods here that you may not find anywhere else all under one roof ... whether Italian, Greek, Arabic, Macedonian, Indian or whatever ... you will find it here.

    There is also a liquour shop and bakery in Corrados. Both have resonable prices & the bakery has some excellent Italian pasteries and cookies that you may not find elsewhere.

    It's always very crowded there so expect to have to look for a parking space. Also, once you get inside, expect that your back might be bumped by a shopping cart.

    What to buy: Corrado's has a bread isle that has every variety of bread. Some of the loaves are so fresh they are still hot. The Italian Semolina bread comes from several different bakeries with a crisp crust and soft interior.

    What to pay: The prices in Corrados are reasonable.

Clifton Warnings and Dangers

    There are a couple of really dangerous traffic merges here in Clifton, New Jersey. The worst ones are where Routes # 46 & #3 merge. Going west on route 46 ... route 3 merges abruptly as you come over a rise in the road. I always have to be sure to avoid getting smacked in the right side of my car there. And if you have to exit to Little Falls to the right from Route #46 there ... be very cautious.

    Also when going east on Route #46 ... if you intend to remain on Route #46 where it merges with Route #3 be sure to get into the left lane way in advance. Depending on traffic ... you could be forced onto route #3 if you delay your move to the left for too long.

    On the NJDOT website that I have directed you to ... go to live traffic cameras & click on Rt 46 at Rt3. The NJDOT site is very cool ... it also gives you a report of the most recent traffic incidents.
