BBQ in North Jersey - help!!

I'll be damned! That's an old friend of mine that runs that place and I had no idea he has a site now. The lechon there is excellent and I even brought one to a Jets tailgate and impressed the whole party with it. Pretty good ribs also and enjoy everything they make there. Thanks for posting that link.

New Jersey Pizza

Harrison, I am with you on Starlite. I used to go there often but it is definitely not as good as it used to be.

New Jersey Pizza

I've had both Star and Reservoir pizza and I have to say I prefer the thin crust goodness of Star Tavern. It is definitely my pizza of choice.

Best Falafel in NYC?

I am no falafel expert but from the different places I've been to in NYC, the falafel at Yatagan is the best one I've had to date. I am reading a lot about Azuri so I will have to try that one day (even after reading GilloD's awful experience).

New Jersey, not Los Angeles, the hot dog capital of the world.

You guys sure know your hot dogs here. Amazing Hot Dog is 5 minutes away from me and I still have not tried it. After reading the posts here, I will have to go soon. My hot dog of choice in NJ is the chili and cheese from JJ's hot dogs in Newark. I am sure there are better places to go but that is one of my fav late night spots. Anybody else know of a good late night hot dog spot?

Clearwater Beach/Tampa restaurant suggestions

I came back from Clearwater on Sunday and I tried a couple of places in Clearwater (Britt's Laguna Grille and Frenchy's) as well as Samurai Blue at Ybor City and Charley's Steaks House. I enjoyed the cajun food at Britt's and Frenchy's and definitely liked Samurai Blue (loved the dancing eel). Charley's, on the other hand, was a good experience but I thought the steaks lacked flavor. Let me try to be a steak expert for a second here.... The steak was juicy and very tender and the price was not bad either ($38 for a porterhouse) but I thought it would be better than advertised. I guess I was looking for something out of the ordinary since the place raves about the awards they received. The appetizers were good though (ordered the seafood sampler) and the alligator was surprisingly delicious. I was reluctant to try at first but after my first bite I couldn't stop. Overall, the trip was fun and the food was good. Can't wait to head back down to Clearwater next year. I'll put up another board such as this for more suggestions next time. Thanks everyone.

Another Dim Sum Suggestion Request

From my experience, the best time to get to Jing Fong is between 11-11:30. This is so we are guaranteed a table and not have to wait outside. Sometimes it gets way too packed in there. Also, around noon most of the variety of dishes come out. It is, by far, my favorite place to go for dim sum.

Clearwater Beach/Tampa restaurant suggestions

Thanks for the info, everyone. I will mention Columbia to my friends and see what they think. I been to Tampa once before and remember eating some slow cooked pork in a couple of different places. I guess on other days we'll just have to play it by ear.

Clearwater Beach/Tampa restaurant suggestions

My friends and I are going to stay at Clearwater Beach next week and I was wondering if there are any restaurants down there that would wow us. I would like to try something in Florida that is not common in the NYC tri-state area. We are also going to visit Ybor City for a night or two so any restaurant suggestions in that area would be appreciated.
