Have you ever checked out the cash register? what decade do you think that is from? That thing is ancient and probably worth some money.

good food in strange places

they will try to stuff you with cheaper brisket and roast beef. pass on that and hold out for the skirt steak and top sirloin.

Bumping this up....

There is a new fried chicken place in the sunoco gas station parking lot in middletown. It's on the corner of rt 35 and cooper....right before you pass whole foods if heading north....about 2 miles from red bank. I see some good coupons in my mail and they have some good wing specials. I will try it soon.

What pork tacos do you order there? I had some a while back and I think I ordered the wrong ones. I didn't even want to finish them.

Can you guys elaborate on these notb enchiladas? Is this a sandwich enchilada hybrid? Lol

I am intrigued.

Cool.

I got my hands on some founders backwoods bastard at spirits. It's not even displayed. They basically sell it to their friends and keep it in the back. I would try to get some and ask. they didn't get much of it.

They had a food truck that used to cook pizzas and a few items but the town made them stop for some reason.

Simko's - Brielle

Last time i was there they served me a hockey puck burger. It was so well done I didn't even eat half of it and just ate the bacon. That place has changed hands a few times but I think I have only been to it once under simko name. I would go back to try it again if in the area but I'm in no rush lol. I'd go to captain eds or i hear good things about shipwreck

yeah I remember this too mark. It is a mad house during lunch hours. I went around 6:30 this time. Next time I am going to try a fresh mozz, roasted pepper and parma prosciutto. That is what the manager recommended. He says the parma is where it's at. At over 20 a pound for parma I am sure it will boost the price of sub. I am curious to see how much it will run.

Mr Bingley, it is definitely not at bottle king...checked.

NJcraftbeer, the maine beer company Mo is the same way. It sells out pretty much in a day or two. Try it out if you haven't...awesome brew if you like pales

I don't care for yelp. I find that the best food is often where great ratings are not. Yelp folks seem to be all about being popular and making friends.

I think joon summed it up with his "yum factor"

I dont mind paying for delicious food. I just want it to be worth it.

As for sals....i can assure you that the Roma is a solid sub

Anyone know what twin light tap house mark is doing? I heard he was trying to open a red bank spot a while back. Mark = cool dude

Mad hatter does not cook food now. In fact, you have to drink outside. The inside is not open from sandy.

Wow I forgot this....

Went to sals in shrewsbury and had the Roma......outrageously good sub with top notch Brooklyn bread. I was talking to the manager there about bread and he agreed with that th bread makes the sub....cool guy.

How about barnacle bills? A few minutes out of the way but they have some great burgers

Never had food there but the claddaugh?

I think the windmill in long branch is open late and that's about a mile past mb

Oceanview today folks...

Just got done polishing off a fried chicken cutlet, roasted pepper and fresh moz sub with balsamic....so good. I haven't had one in ages. Go try one....trust me :)

They seems to have gotten smaller but the flavor is there.

Try Kane brewing in ocean too....very good beer.

I will have to try that Eight point IPA

Does any one know any central nj places that carry jolly pumpkin beers? Spirits in middletown used to and the store in west long branch next to foodtown did as well. It's a brewery, not a pumpkin beer and they specialize in sours.

JR, here is what an average korean BBQ table looks like. Meat is cooked traditionally over charcoal

When you leave you smell like smoke : )

Sea Bright Pizza - are they reopening?

I had the eggplant and one grandma slice. 4 per slice for me. I guess they liked me LOL (this was a few weeks ago and I posted a comment on here.)

CKE25, if you want a good pizza try chiafullos in navesink but ask for "think and crispy." Their "regular" pie is not the greatest IMO but the thin one made to order is top notch. The issue is you have to eat it right out of the oven piping hot...really good. So you can eat it right inside or if you dare, bring it over to the bar next door and check out some salty locals at the Gateway bar. They allow you to bring in food and eat it at the bar. In fact, they encourage it.

Red bank could use a korean bbq place....get that town smelling like charcoal.

JR, I purposely left it out to joke around and leave you salivating ; )

It was at Charley's in Orlando...amazing piece of beef (not cheap but worth it.) I really don't buy into the "wagyu" thing as I think it is a marketing gimmick here, but this steak was outrageous. I have had the high grade kobe in japan and nothing here comes close but this ribeye was about as good as it can get. (old homestead has japanese kobe but I have not tried it yet.) Also, Bones in Atlanta I recently hit and their ribeye is top ten in the country I would say.

Mr Bingley, I understand what you are saying. I have become way too critical and have been disappointed way too many times. For this reason I don't mind paying a premium for truly awesome steaks. It can be an expensive hobby. We need to make a steak thread LOL
