Best BBQ in Jacksonville???`

What do you eat at Clark's? I kind of like it, but my family finds the taxidermy creepy.

Looking for another breakfast spot in Jacksonville, east of the St. Johns River

I like all three. Interesting that all three of these have 2nd locations on San Jose Blvd South of 295.

Best BBQ in Jacksonville???`

I have tried most BBQ joints here. I really think Mojo's rocks and Jenkins sucks. However, the Best BBQ in town is a place in a beat up shopping center called Nicely's in Fruit Cove. Food Lion Shopping Center 445 SR 13 Fruit Cove, FL 32259 (904) 287-2607. Nice char. Great smoke. I eat there at least once a week.

Suggestions in Freehold or Princeton area?

Jim, I used to post a lot on the Outer-borough Boards under another sign-in name. I can't remember it and have a new one. Moved to the Princeton area a little more than three years ago. For lunch, I only have one Chowhound suggestion for you here. It is Tiger Noodles on Nassau street. Not for everything though. Their Chinese food is pretty pedestrian. Their noodles, however are outstanding. So are their shrimp dishes. The shrimp are fresh. They are cooked right too. Often shrimp are rubbery. Theirs are soft and tasty. So if you are in the area, please give it a try for lunch.

P.S. They just opened a new branch on US 1 in West Windsor. I have not been there yet. They also own Ya-Ya Noodles in the Montgomery shopping center in Skillman. Not recommended.

Princeton gems

Salt Creek Grill is in Forestal Village. I don't think much of the food. The service in the restaurant, on three separate occasions was below average. Good in the bar though.

I love Rats! I always eat in the Kabul Room though. Best fries I have ever had, and I lived in Belgium for 5 years. I love the croque monsieurs too. The place is so fabulous! Take a walk in the gardens after dinner or between courses. It rocks. Professional bartenders make great mixed drinks.

Brewery Restaurants in NJ

The food at The Ship Inn is really terrific. Even the Mushy Peas, which are mashed frozen peas. Worth a trip. Pretty yown.

I generally do not like Brew pub beer, but they have great stuff on draft and my fav, Blue Bird Bitter in bottles.
