Are we meant to tip at a Sonic Drive-In? Or others?

Funny this thread pops up, I had lunch at Sonic yesterday, per my sons request. Total was $30.88 I have her $36.00 to which she responded; "you gave me too much" and started to return my $5.00 when I told her "that's for you". She seemed unaccustomed to receiving tips. Just my experience.

Has anyone been to Birravino in Red Bank?

To my understanding it is the same ownership. Good Luck!

Pavlov is sitting at a bar, when all of the sudden the phone rings… Pavlov gasps, “Oh crap, I forgot to feed the dogs.”

Good Reuben in Central NJ?

My all time favorite Reuban was the big-n-beefy (don't think its corn beef or pastrami) Ruben Studdard discovered on American Idol!

Cry more noob

You know what I can't believe? Someone would start a thread complaining about the way threads about complaints are handled!?!?! I mean talk about compounding and already repetitive topic! I should start a thread now complaining about this thread! Who is with me! Come on fellow hounds! Follow me, we will show givemecrumbs how we handle someone trying to make a valid observation about their experience here!!!
{{starts handing pitch-forks and torches out to the Chow villagers}}

Kind of like that givemecrumbs? There is certainly some kind of pack mentality among certain hounds when it comes to voicing an opinion that goes against the popular current. These most recent changes to the site have seemed to seriously disinfrancised many of the sites loyal posters, leaving what I see as a huge void in what use to be the community feel I liked so much about this site.

Has anyone been to Birravino in Red Bank?

Well knowing that I will stop by the new place to check it out. Oh, I just remembered Basil T's use to always have a very good split pea soup too! Very rare to find a place that has that on their menu. Did they do away with the beer club thing? The mugs hanging everywhere?

Although I'm watching the Giants game (please pray for us in the 2nd half) my phone was a buzz earlier with friends asking me if I saw our friend Ron from Christine's on The Real Housewives of New Jersey tonight. Congrats on the sudden notiriety! Continued success!

Has anyone been to Birravino in Red Bank?

I was never in love or even in like with Badil T's, but every now and then I would get a hankering for their Italian meat and cheese platter. Do they still have that on the menu? ( yes I'm sure I could google it and look it up myself, but that's not as fun as asking here )

In or near Westfield - need recommendations

I'm not a big fan of Westfield but not too far away in Kennilworth is La Griglia, my favorite when I'm in that general area.

Best Fettuccine Alfredo in Ocean County?

Il Giardinello - Cafe Italia - Villa Malfi are the best options for Italian Food in Toms River. I can personally attest to Giardinello Alfredo as my daughter has had it.

As Seal mentioned Jimmy's in Asbury Park is the hands down best overall option, however that requires a ride into Monmouth County.

My question is; where in Little Italy did you experience this dreamy Alfredo? Most places there are more tourist trap than quality Italian so I would love to learn of a hidden gem.

Convicted Felon Making his comeback in Red Bank, NJ.....Welcome Back Russell D'anton!!

Yeah, I thought I had some "breaking news" here but apparently it has been in the public forum already. We will see, as I've stated I'm not supporter of the idea.

Ela you are correct. Someone posted an article in this thread that states his wife is going to be the Manager of the restaurant he is simply "consulting".

Very true, he worked his way up through the ranks, can't deny him that. Even more reason you would think he would covet his good fortunes and not sacrifice his life long accomplishments with such foolish, needless thievery.

Well that certainly pop's a big hole in my "inside" info. lol The only date I can seem to find on that article was August 7th, is that when the article was published?

A restaurateur unlike an attorney, doctor or financial professional where a license is required, there is nothing baring him from returning to the restaurant business. (see my comments above regarding the liquor license) I find it troubling anytime someone has been found guilty of committing a crime, then runs directly back into the industry that served his criminal activities.

He absolutely served his time, no doubt or question about that but he has been "out" probably just about a year or less. If he has been out for 5/10+ years....has proved himself reformed and wanted to get back in the business, I would have no problem with it. But for him to just jump back into what was his life of crime, I find to be ethically flawed.

Notice where I said the previous owners are "teaming up" with him. Meaning they own the building and liquor license, there is nothing stopping him from being a partner or "manager".

EXACTLY!!! MOOSES!! How could we ever forgive that!!

I wrote Moose's off after the 1st month they opened. Without boring you with details I found myself there a few weeks ago, against my will, but I had a Moose Cut prime rib, and it was very good. I'm far from willing to endorse the place, but maybe they learned something from their early inconsistent mistakes.

(I also heard through the rumor mill that something was going to be happening to the location.......don't know how reliable the source is but that's what I heard).

I noticed that the vacant location of the old Sienna Grill (old, old Two if by Sea old,old,old Sal's Tavern) in Red Bank has been under significant renovation. Curious as to what was going on I did a little investigating and it turns out that the old Charlie Brown's CEO, now convicted felon, recently released from prison is planning his return to the restaurant business.

The owners of the building and the old Sienna Grill, the Brennan Family, have decided to team up with the recently released ex-con to head up this new joint venture.

I personally find this reprehensible and wish them nothing but failure.
