has anyone been to Nikkos lately? (greek in long branch)

I went last night....it was just OK. I think the bread and olives were the highlight if my meal lol

My wife had a snapper that was decent but we are kind of spoiled when it comes to snappers. If you like fish, head to Kunya Siam in Atlantic Highlands and try their snapper. It is awesome! Obviously it is a much different style/preparation but trust me on this, it is a winner.

I haven't been here in ages but I seem to be craving some greek. I know there are some better Greek spots but this is kind of close to me.

Any good recommendations on what to get?

Its funny you say this Mark. My wife's friend came to Barnacles with us and she orders a well done burger with mozzarella then puts kethcup on it to boot. It almost made my juicy medium rare cheddar burger taste not so good at the moment.

On a side note, I will hit up el rancho soon. any recommendations on what to get?

I was there last night too. did you see a really good looking guy wearing a hat that said Pelagic?

Just kidding about the really good looking part LOL

I was there though and my cheddar burger was tasty as hell.

6lb. Pork Roll..where can I buy?

interesting..... I didnt know that. Do they make the "off brand" stuff like shoprite?

what is the difference in quality between those 3?

If anyone wants a new job go open a porkroll breakfast truck in key west.

Half the people there are from nj/nyc.

I find it interesting that people on yelp frequent Nicholas. I think of yelp as more "lower end" restaurant reviews.

Biagio Wood-fired Pizza in Red Bank Shuttered!

yes I think 4 or 5 times now. The owners are really nice. I do like their buffalo wings better than their oven roasted wings but both are good. I like their pizza but there is better pizza around IMO.

Does anyone know if/when Ciao bella is opening back up?

I really hope McCloones doesn't open up a new spot in red bank. It would cool to get something unique and not italian/Mcloones in there.

new BBQ spot in middletown called A&L BBQ

nice, I am glad you guys enjoyed it.

I have been three times (not lately) and have been meaning to get there again. I am craving some brisket : )

places that cook with wood/charcoal

I just got back on vacation and ate more delicious wood grilled meat than you could imagine. It got me thinking, what places around Monmouth county cook with wood/charcoal?

I know there are quite a few BBQ and rodizio spots but any others?

I can think of only a handful ….bonefish and saltcreek are two chains that come to mind but what else is out there? Oh and Linos in red bank.

Big Harlie's BBQ - Sayreville, NJ

its a lot harder to cook brisket correctly...most likely why.

I will have to check this out. no brisket? I looked at the menu and didn't see any.

Biagio Wood-fired Pizza in Red Bank Shuttered!

German would be cool! I just got back from SXM and out of all the places there I chose to eat German food one night since I haven't had any in a long time. The wife thought I was nuts LOL

Runa Peruvian Cuisine Red Bank

does anyone know when this place will open?

Biagio Wood-fired Pizza in Red Bank Shuttered!

I have to say, I am not the biggest tommy's pizza fan. I like their wings a lot better. For a $20 pie its just not really doing it for me (they aren't bad but just aren't worth it IMO)

If you could take brothers pies and have them be served in Tommy's location, then you would have a winner!

JR, I don't think they need less eateries, just some better ones and more unique stuff. I'd love to see a real BBQ place in RB but that would never work in that town. A korean BBQ place would be cool.

tip: if you rent a car get a GPS. google maps doesn't work there so my phone GPS would not work (android)

Bon Jovi's Soul Kitchen now Tops in Red Bank...

Yes....just wondering if the food is decent.

Bon Jovi's Soul Kitchen now Tops in Red Bank...

11 reviews and it's the number one spot?

Tripadvisor has helped me but it will literally block reviews. I have contacted them and you get nowhere. Take that for what it is worth.

Anyway, is this spot any good?

AC "Romantic" Recs?

Buddakan is killer. My wife talks about that place years after we went. It's not that expensive and it's unique

Where is the best mexican restaurant in Monmouth County?

Good reading my friend. As always, I enjoy your colorful posts and honest opinions.

I've never had the north of the border chorizo tacos so those are next on my list. The chorizo tacos at linos are stellar. I rotate those and the al pastor. The old lady was going off last night so a little tequila and some beers accompanied me to linos for some ribs, peace and quiet lol

My closet smells like a bonfire as I sat next to the fire pit

Viking, what are your favorite dishes at north of the border? I'm looking to expand out.

yeah I would agree with that Mark.

casa comida is probably along those lines too.

Taka versus Kanji: Which is better?

Sockster do you know of any places that sell toro around momouth county? (not yumi)

Kyoto has it sometimes but he even tells me it is not really worth buying. It is so damn expensive. The demand in areas outside major cities just isn't there to justify the expense.

MGZ I have to tell you, I wasn't thrilled with the pork skin tacos. I was thinking crispy chicharron style skin/fat and it was chopped up chunks of pork shoulder and tongue. And yes I said "cuerito"

Did they serve me the wrong thing or give me the gringo special?

I still like Linos al pastor tacos. Those things are delicious if you haven't had them....my favorite variation in Red Bank.

On the topic, has anyone been to papagayos in long branch? it is a building down from Adas.

YCF, As JR mentioned, juanitos is family friendly...not amazing food in my eyes and kind of pricey for what you get. I'd personally hit senor peppers a block down the road. It is lower in cost but might not have the decor/atmosphere of Juanitos (not that it is fine dining either lol.) Both are BYOB

Thai Restaurants in Monmouth County

CKE, do you mean owned/run by Thai or authentic tasting food? Are you from there by chance?

If I am not mistaken, all three close to me are run by Thai folks (siam garden, kuyna siam and muang thai)

I know for sure Kunya is. She is always there running the show.

Thai Restaurants in Monmouth County

Muang Thai is decent. The new spicy duck on the menu cover is really good but at 26.95 its getting into decent steak territory with that price.

JMS, I go to Kunya all the time. Its closer to me and cheaper than red bank. I have a few dishes I really like (whole fried snapper, skirt steak, basil duck and chicken tamarind.) I think I have tried almost every dish there between my wife and I.

Sandwiches in Monmouth County

Joon, I tried richards and it was definitely good. Do you just ask for "fatty pastrami" when you order or is there a certain sandwich you get?
