I think the poster is saying that Quiznos is in the same league as Subway not Primo subs

Stage House, Scotch Plains, NJ

one of our local favorites. bbq is Memorial Day to Labor Day and is a great deal. IIRC all of the meat is from directly across the street at John's Meat Market. You pay for any sides and drinks. At the end of the meal you can "pay" any price you wish and in return you will get a gift certificate of that amount to use in the main restaurant. At least that is the way it has worked in the past. I have never had a bad meal here. I have had filet mignon, chicken of various types, all you can eat raviolis on monday night, etc.

Whitehouse Subs - Trump Taj Mahal

Best thing for me at Roy Rogers is the Sour Dough Frisco burger. They don't make them at the turnpike or GSP rest stop ones AFAI. The roast beef is good too but i like the roast beef sliders.

My favorite burgers in New Jersey are served at...

Smashburger in New Providence(and i am sure all of them) seems to load the burger with Salt. Saltburger would be more appropriate. All 3 times i have been there and it is always the same. And i am pretty salt tolerant...

Pizza in Flemington

My M-I-L has lived in Flemington since the early 70's but has recently claimed that the pizza has gone downhill there. Anyone have any suggestions? She claims Franks and Gabby's are not up to snuff. Named a few others that i forgot. Please feel free to chime in

someone mentioned Westfield. The place in the parking lot where the Christmas Tree is in the back left corner has been: Cheeburger Cheeburger twice, 25 Burgers and now Burger Palace(not sure if it is still open or not). And that has been since we moved in the area in 2006!

East Brunswick Baja Fresh: closed

For whatever reason i liked Baja Fresh when i first tried the one in Neptune. Over the years i always felt the menu changed so often and regardless of what was on the menu, all i tasted was salt. I know most people favor Chipotle but i like Qdoba the best out of the 3.

Route 66 Hot Dogs,Burgers and Shakes --Long Branch

I'm always too chicken to ask. I just go by taste and if i like it! lol. My friend asked me if it is natural casing or not and i can't even figure out how to tell the difference even though i know what the difference is supposed to be. It def tasted more like a Windmill dog than a max's. Same shape but maybe shorter.

Route 66 Hot Dogs,Burgers and Shakes --Long Branch

It is located on Route 36 where it turns into Joline Ave. Just past Monmouth Park on the right hand side in a small strip mall. 1950's feel to the inside and it has been open 2 weeks. Tried it on Monday. though i will give you a review it certainly is NOT a John Fox review. Dogs in size were similar to the Windmill in thickness and length. Same consistency as well from the grill. I got one plain to taste it w/o any condiments and then got one with just chili( Much like Mr Fox i don't like onions!). Surprisingly, it was a very Plainfield-style of Chili though maybe not as spicy. Plain dog was about 3.50 and the chili dog was 4.50 w/o the onions. Not sure how it will do as it is a tough area with plenty of competition. It is right on my route so i had to give it a chance.

Hot Dog tradition in Sea Bright

My Mom is a hot dog kook also and used to like Maxs over windmill but her last 2 trips up there has her convinced that something has changed with Maxs and she now favors Windmill.

old Fuddruckers location is going to be an Asian place according to a worker when i stopped there last week. He did not know much info as he was a foreigner with limited English and his boss was gone for the day but he did say an Asian restaurant.

Jersey Shore Food Truck Wars

Pretty much same as what everyone else said. Waited for about an hour at the Max's line for my Mom(would have been easier just to drive to the main Max's joint). I wanted to try the Cajun joint but couldn't even see that truck and i wanted to try the Chicago beef and the waffles. I think they should have had the trucks lines up on all of one side and spread them out all along that road outside the front of the track. Too many lines intertwining with each other. I can understand them running out of food as it was a first year event and also with the weather so unsure. I wouldn't want to be a truck owner and get stuck with tons of left over food if it was a light turnout. Just read that the Cajun truck was not allowed in or turned away by the Fire Marshal? Maybe too many people there or ???? anyone know???

New England Hot Dog Company

If you see a Muscle maker Grill , odds are there is usually a gym nearby. It has become a chain which i think originated in the Rahway/Union/Woodbridge area? with the intent of selling healthy food and GNC type items.

Emma's Brick Oven Pizza

my wife loves the pizza here too. i love it because it is good but also that it is a byo!! the only drawback is that it can get loud at night especially on weekends. all that glass makes the noise bounce.
