Barnacle Bills: Great buryers & terrific pub

Trying to find the best burger in Central Jersey, and I've been reading all the comments in this website. Gotta get to Rossi's eventually, but hit Barnacle Bill's last night. There was an hour wait, but I was fixated on that cheeseburger that the servers kept walking by with, so I wasn't leaving. Turned out only to be 40 minutes. In the meantime, very active bar and fresh peanuts with shells on the floor.

It was worth the wait! 10 oz burger, cooked exactly as ordered, and piping hot. Fries also piping hot. Juicy burger, sauteed onions and mushrooms. Just when we thought we had the perfect night, a small band started up in the far corner. Guitars and guys singing some mellow tunes (started off with "You Got that Lovin Feeling"). We eventually left with stomachs full and singing whatever tune they were playing.

Looking forward to Rossi's, but this is a go to place.

Hickory Hog Pt Pleasant

Just caught up with this site, and found the reference to Hickory Hog. With the demise of the Southern House and Jack's Ribs & Ale, we've been at a loss trying to find a good rib joint. So far, this is the one. Terrific ribs - fall off the bone good. Price is a bit steep, but as someone else pointed out, in line with prices at other restaurants.

When we drove up the first time, my wife thought that it was strictly takeout, and we almost left. But I saw diners sitting there, and we went in. No ambience, but then again, if it's good ribs in Central Jersey, I'd eat 'em standing up. Very clean and neat place, though, and very attentive staff.
