Pom Pom BBQ on Route 33 in Millstone

Went back again to get the ribs again. Definitely a great smoke ring and really nice bark. Maybe elf.elf.baby was there on the wrong day. I was up in Rochester a week back at Dinosaur BBQ, and while I really liked their brisket and their pulled pork, Pom Pom had better, bigger ribs. Also, the sides I had (greens and slaw) were on the money. Slaw nothing earth shattering, but the greens were delicious. and of course, there are the peanut butter cookies to take with you on the way out. A few points...1) their combos are messed up. You can get ribs with two sides, but the pulled pork is with fries (and the woman at the register didn't seem interested in accommodating me). 2) I'd love to see some squeeze bottles of sauce around for some variety if you want it. 3) Just go buy some brisket and smoke it...how hard is that? Other than that, the place is solid. The ribs and pulled pork are great (have had each a few times). I had chicken once and it was really good, but I'm here for the pig. Enjoy.

Pom Pom BBQ on Route 33 in Millstone

OK, so last weekend I did take out, and during the week I made the trek over from my office. I got the pulled pork sandwich and it was great. They had a vinegar base and then seemed to put a little bit of the rib sauce (ketchup based "bbq" sauce) on top. The fries (which had been soggy when we got them home when doing takeout) were hot, crisp and delicious. I would definitely recommend the pulled pork, even though it doesn't get the same prominent treatment as ribs and chicken...I am going to tell them they need a pulled pork combo plate the next time I go in (which will be soon). Do yourself a favor and get thee to Pom Pom!

Pom Pom BBQ on Route 33 in Millstone

Just went last night on the way back to E. Windsor from the Freehold Mall (ugh). Dealing with the mall was almost worth it to finally try Pom Pom. We got ribs, chicken, and my daughter wanted a burger.
+ The ribs were REALLY good. Real dark pink smoke ring visible as soon as you bit in. The right amount of sauce coating them. And my six rib order was probably 7-8.
+The chicken was fantastic as well...juicy and falling off the bone. The spice rub was spot on, a nice savory flavor.
+The burger didn't disappoint either. It was cooked to order and my daughter ate the whole thing she liked it so much (a rare feat).
+For sides we got slaw, mac and cheese, and some fries. The slaw was great...the finely shredded kind. The mac and cheese definitely seemed fresh and home made (though perhaps a little salty). The fries suffered on the drive home (a bit soggy) but weren't awful despite getting steamed on the 15 minute ride. Definitely want to try the greens and the roasted potatoes, etc.
+ I did get a peanut butter cookie...it was fantastic. Soft in the middle with some crunch on the edges. I'd come back again and again just for those.

Looking forward to trying the pulled pork. I was hesitant because they didn't promote it the same way they did the ribs and chicken (you only see the pulled pork as one of the sandwich options). Glad to hear folks speaking highly of it. Can't wait to go back. It is great to know that this spot is garnering such great attention as it fills a void in the land of the Italian and Chinese joints. Viva Pom Pom!

Anything worth eating in Brockton?

Great call on the Cod. Living in Jersey now I can't get that "pub" style of pizza. A meat sauce pizza at the cod after about a dozen Budweisers....mmmm.

If you venture to the east side, make sure you go to Supreme House of Pizza. This place has what I consider the best steak and cheese I've ever had (I now live in central Jersey and have been to all the Philly spots). For my money, Supreme is the best (make sure you get it toasted, and if you like hot peppers, they have a great hot pepper relish)...no joke. I also recommend Christo's for classic Greek salad, pizza, etc. Over on the West Side you have McMenamy's for seafood and West Side for subs/pizza. Enjoy the City of Champions!
