A long-vacant space nestled in Jersey City’s Paulus Hook neighborhood has sprung to life with a new fast-casual lunch and dinner concept.
Speedy’s has officially opened their doors at 84.5 Morris Street inside a storefront just off the road’s intersection with Washington Street. The arrival has been a long time coming, as the cozy space has been dark for over half a decade since Paulus Hook Pizza closed up shop back in 2015.
Claiming to serve the “freshest, fastest, juiciest, tastiest burgers in town,” Speedy’s menu focuses on burgers and bowls. Selections of the former include a traditional Pat LaFrieda burger blend, a Cajun Chicken variety, a steelhead salmon version with avocado, cucumber, cilantro, and spicy sesame aioli, or a Cubano burger that adds pulled pork, ham, Swiss cheese and pickles to the mix.
Bowls on the menu at Speedy’s include a classic Caesar, quinoa, or salmon poke variety. A field greens bowl includes candied walnuts and a balsamic vinaigrette, while Speedy’s Greek bowl blends feta, olives, and stuffed grape leaves.
Speedy’s also features a few unique sides for a quick-serve joint that include house-cut “disco fries” or vegetarian nachos with soy chorizo. The restaurant is open for pick-up and delivery through their website and includes some limited seating for those wishing to stay awhile. Their hours run from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily and they can be followed on Instagram account at the handle @speedysjc.
