Elizabeth doesn't have much to offer in terms of food. As there are an unusually large number of restaurants in the city that specialize in Spanish and Mexican cuisine, it is worth trying. For those who are unfamiliar with junk food, the Food Court of the Jersey Gardens Mall is often the place to eat, because you don't have to look long. Gourmets are best served in neighboring cities such as Hoboken.
