Eat at a diner.
New Jersey is infested with diners like some states are infested with Walmarts. A meeting place for the young and old, for the slackers and the stoned, a diner is where you can find a meal at four in the morning, whether you're jonesing for a grilled cheese or the seafood special (do not get the seafood special). If you can go to just one, check out Newark's Tops the Diner, perennially voted No. 1 in the state.
