Smokey Joe's great review

Three stars is an extraordinary review. I believe that makes Smokey Joes the only three star reviewed kosher restaurant in NJ.

By comparison, Pasta Factory has only 2.5 stars and the non-kosher place Reginas also got only 2.5 stars.”

This is a big deal for the kosher eating community – to have one of our own kosher restaurants be held up as exemplary, even in comparison to non-kosher restaurants.

Way to go, Smokey Joe.

"Smokey Joe's" best Kosher burger in Teaneck

I'm lucky to live in Teaneck, 5 minutes from "Smoky Joe's" where I go for lunch every time I get to work from home. My regular lunch is the slow bbq chicken or brisket sandwich which are "out of this world". However, today I had the burger and I was not disappointed.

The burger was done perfectly, medium-rare as I asked, and was served with a slice of tomato, lettuce, red onions and pickles on the side and of course French-fries.

The burger tasted great. Big, fresh and right off the grill, the juices were running down my chin and I was happy. Quite a different experience from the usual over-cooked meat in a shape of a perfect disk called burger.

It is now added to my regular lunch items.

Chow hounders, go try it.
