Mick Jagger told the crowd at a recent show that a local restaurant, The Tick Tock Diner, has introduced a new sandwich named after him, ‘The Mick Jagger'.

“I’ve never had a (freaking) sandwich named after me. I’m very, very proud.”

In 2019 Mick Jagger said he and his mates dined at the iconic restaurant during their two shows at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.

“It's great to be here in New Jersey, we're really loving it here,” said Jagger from the stage.

“It's the health food capital of the USA, right? So we went to the Tick Tock Diner and we had Taylor ham, egg and cheese! With disco fries! And sloppy joe to go!”

The staff at the Tick Tock gets asked daily about the band, Portalakis said. 

“People come in and ask can we sit where Mick Jagger sat when he came here,” Portalakis said. “If the seat's available I will gladly take them. When (other customers) leave and come and pay they'll ask where Mick Jagger sat, and after they're done eating they take pictures where he sat.”

The Jagger visit in 2019 didn't cause a commotion when it happened. The crew didn't recognize him, and only afterward realized he was there, Portalakis said.

“Hopefully this time somebody will recognize him,” Portalakis said. “Everybody was shocked that he was here and then after they were, ah, maybe it was that guy. A lot of celebrities like to keep it (incognito) when they go out.”
