UNION,NJ - The annual “Best of” competition is returning to Union: this year, in search of the best bagels in town.

The search for Union’s best burger last year saw more than 700 people vote, earning Cozy Corner the top spot for best burger.

“Events like these not only stimulate the economy by encouraging residents to shop local, but they also bring about a greater sense of camaraderie and pride in the eateries that are unique to Union,” said Union Mayor Suzette Cavadas.
