4 N.J. hot dog joints named among top 75 in U.S.

IMO...Tommy's in Elizabeth has the best Italian hot dog, what
makes his different is the homemade sausage sandwich, and his crispy deep fried potatos.....I don't like the commercial sausages at the other places, in fact I buy the raw
sausages at Tommy's.

Slimy Cold cuts

Your "slime" problems are OVER with a Foodsaver vacuuming machine
I have had mine 4 years and have saved a ton of $$ not throwing cold cuts and other foods away....vacuum packed cold cuts will stay fresh in the vacuumed package anywhwere from 4 to 6 weeks
and be like fresh when opened....ALL the air is removed which of course keeps all foods fresh, and longer in the freezer with no freezer burn....$100 to $120.00 will save you 10 times that number

Unbelievable !!

Went to a popular chain restaurant this afternoon and ordered a bowl of soup with a beer, the bar was empty except for this middle aged obese man two stools from me,....when the soup arrived,..as I took my first taste, a waft of CIGAR SMOKE crossed my nose,...I looked and the fat man had a lit thin cigar in his left hand, talking to the Bartender !!...I stared at the bartender and he asked me if anything was wrong, then suddenly the cigar was out of sight....is business so bad that they allow smoking in their restaurants now ??!...I believe it's a state law no smoking in restaurants....

Now that (sob) Chengdu 1 in Cedar Grove is closed....

Chengdu 1 on Rt.22 west in Greenbrook are the same owners as the one closed recently, AND you get a bonus because right across the road ANOTHER Chengdu restaurant is opening soon.....two class Chinese restaurant right across the road from each other,....I'm glad I live only a few miles from both.

Farm to Table in Monmouth or Ocean County?

I believe this "Farm to table" is a restaurant/farm collective promotional gimmick....to charge more, hoping customers will
think their eating "healthy" when they see "Farm to Table"

Need Best Pizza, Union county

Why do people gravitate toward pizza's in coal fired ovens ???....if the ingredients aren't excellent, and the pizza maker doesn't know what their doing......NO OVEN will make them better

Need Best Pizza, Union county

After 15 years, I'm no longer patronizing my former pizza go-to...the pie is now a tasteless glob of mozzerella, and tomato sauce to match, plus the pizzamaker doesn't know how to assemble
a pie, and for so long it was one of the greatest,....the owner
definitely cut the quality but not the price of $17.00....does anyone know of a QUALITY pie in Union County ??.....Thanks.

Cioffis Boardwalk

Visited the new Boardwalk in Union today....they have what they described as the "Syds" hotdog, which I had and must exclaim it was excellent,..and as I remember the originals, this dog matched the Syds original in flavor...as for the cheesesteak, IMO, just another chopped rib eye beef, not coming anywhere near the excellence of Chics Deli in Cherry Hill. Cioffis must season their beef to make it stand out from the usual tasteless cheesesteaks...they must experiment with different seasonings that will enhance the subtle flavor of the beef, while not overwhelming.....

Best new (old) Diner !

Haven't been to the Mark Twain diner in Union for years, heard they were closed 7 months remodeling and a new Chef...well the change has been spectacular .....the food isn't good, it's GREAT !!....the service also, and the cakes and pastries no other restaurant can compare....usually when the portions are large the quality suffers,...not here, the meats and fish are of pristeen quality, it's a half mile from the Parkway and is mine, and many others new go-to eating place.

New Asian Supermarket in Springfield?

A well stocked, clean huge store, but it appears the meat and fish departments stock many frozen varieties, and a lot less fresh.

And the Winner is............

Since I love quality Chinese food and live near two quality Chinese restaurants, The Golden Cantonese on Rt. 22 east in Bound Brook and across the road is the Chengdu 1,...both opened last year...I have had dinner several times at both, and declare the winner to be the Golden Cantonese.....Chengdu is very good,...Golden Cantonese is very VERY good....of course, strictly IMO

Happy birthday dear, the butcher wasn't very pleasant.

Once I went to John's in Scotch Plains and my order came to $75.00
....I asked the counterman for a receipt (which they never give)
and suddenly he said he made a mistake, and refunded me $8.00
.....how coincidental, but I have heard of their reputation....

Water & Wine restaurant in Watchung?

Been to W&W twice and really good food,...also they serve 3 oz
liquors for average prices which is very unusual....one complaint, their valet parking is a no choice parking, they either park your car or no entering the restaurant, and this type of extortion is condoned ny management, also at LaGriglia

Roosterspin Korean Fried Chicken in Westfield

BEST FRIED CHICKEN I have had in a long time,...Popeye's is very good, KFC, is garbage....Roosterspin's is crispy and tasty, Korean prepped, expensive but well worth it,...there are two other couples I have recommended to, and all 4 loved it....

What Is America's Worst Restaurant Chain?

People must understand the White Castle hamburger has several components...the beef, is tasty when not dried out, the bun absorbs some of the tasty grease which enhances the bun, and the onions add subtle flavor......

What Is America's Worst Restaurant Chain?

THERE IS good grease and bad grease,....good fresh grease can enhance the taste of most foods if not overdone,...the bad grease is the rancid type.
