10 of the Shore's top spots for pork roll

Yes, its in the parking lot of Tommy's coal fired pizza, melting pot, etc. Only on Sundays during the farmer's market. I've tried a few of their specialty sandwiches, including the one with Asian slaw and the one with grilled pineapple. He definitely makes good stuff. A little bit pricey, but that's to be expected from a truck and at an event type like that. If you follow him on Facebook, I think he's usually set up in Asbury during the week, and at a Bar in Sea Bright during weekend nights if I recall correctly.

Food Trucks?

depending on where you are in NJ, and how big the party, some of the trucks from nyc or philly may be willing to work with you to come over.

Fernandes 3 - Sayerville, NJ

I've been to the Fogo de Chao in South Beach, and while their salad bar is impressive by itself, I would say that the meat at Fernandez is better. Although Fernandez's salad bar leaves a lot to be desired, but that's not why you are going there in the first place. :)

10 of the Shore's top spots for pork roll

Ive never actually been to the Middletown (Rt35) location. I live close to the Leonardo store, so I know they make a great Porkroll Sandwich.

Tipping at NJ Banquet Halls

20% was included in our contract. However, we did bring envelopes with a little extra cash in it. I think we had 4 waiters and 1 bar tender. I had the Maitre'd hand them out while they were setting up for the wedding. Did the extra tip help? Maybe, but our service was amazing.

Prime Rib.........

I'm not a connoisseur of fine Prime Rib, but the Brass Rail in Matawan claims to have "Jersey's Best Prime Rib". I've had a few tastes of it and it seemed good to me.

Santorini Greek Cuisine Coming to Lincroft

I actually went on opening night and had an enjoyable meal and was holding off posting because any new resto needs to work out the kinks.

But I agree, that salad was bad, I've been thinking about it for weeks now.

Would have much rather it be omitted or even a smaller portion of "American Greek salad".

I don't remember mine being so finely chopped like in a food processor, but I got the impression that a big batch of it was made at the beginning of the night and served out as the meals left the kitchen.

Good BYOB for post-wedding reception.

Wow, my thread from the past got bumped.

I guess I'll put this here for future reference.

We ended up having our wedding at the English Manor.

We had our rehearsal dinner at Zoni's Coal fired pizza in Middletown/Red Bank on 35. Steve and Kathryn are great people and good food. They gave us a great deal, and we brought our own wine and beer. Their restaurant is really nice and fun, and everyone had a great time.

I don't think they are big enough for 80 people though.

Andrew Zimmern coming to the Count Basie Theater on August 1, 2014

We were there also. I happened to win free tickets on Facebook, so we were in the back, but the theater was less than half full on the bottom, so the ushers told us we could move up to good seats.

I also thought his presentation was great and the way he justified his beliefs is hard to argue with.

I really wanted to try that squirrel.

I was on the cricket side of the theater, but by the time the plate got back to us, they had run out of forks, so people where just picking them out with their fingers, and I didn't want any after I saw that.

Did you happen to try the fried worm cupcakes in the lobby?

My wife and I did.

For real food, we went to Buona Sera for a fine Italian Meal before the show, and we had a cupcake from Cupcake Magician.

Some of those subs sound awesome.

The Great Jersey Tomato Sauce Taste-Off

I've had the bonjovi sauce. When it came out they had tons of it in shoprite. It's Okay, definitely better then something like a prego, but it's nothing compared to a true homemade sauce. It's alright if your doing something like a quick pizza bagel or need some sauce real quick for a recipie, but I wouldn't pour a bunch of it over spaghetti

That steak tip sandwich thread got me hungry, so I stopped by Philly's yesterday and was really surprised.

Two new people working the front. I suspect a change in ownership? But I did not confirm.

Steak Quality was re-markedly improved, and it was excellent. Crucify me if you wish, but they have the steak-juice and whiz mixture almost exactly the same as Philly. The sandwich was served on a nice piece of itailian bread, and wrapped tightly in white paper. Plenty of sweet onions complimented the steak and cheese masterpiece.

I am really excited to go back again.

Fries appeared to be fresh cut steak fries. They where fried properly, but did have a lighter than normal appearance. The pleasant woman at the counter instructed me to keep the bag open as i drove home, so the steam would not make the fries soft. A blessing and a curse, as I was driving, the fries crisped up, and I ate a good portion of them before I got home.

The food was prepared very fast. The woman told me 6 or 7 minutes, and I think it was even faster than that. She also gave me a menu and told me to call ahead to save time... it would be done before I even got there if they keep up this pace. I'm going to try it again and report back.

Picture is from my phone with poor lighting.

Hazlet/North Middletown take out please...

If your going for greasy "American Food" or Fat sandwiches, Stewarts on 36 does a pretty good job, dont expect anything fancy, and expect a show from the locals.. police cars are fun.

Baxter's Burgers on Carr Ave in Keansburg is also one of my favorites.

Jersey Shore Soups and Subs in Keyport throws down a pretty darn good sub.

Philly's in Atlantic Highlands for Cheese-steaks.

Not really close, but depending on your route of travel, Cluck-U chicken could be a possibility.

There is a fried chicken place in Keyport on Broad and Maple, but I have yet to try it.

There is a place in Belford, sort of by the Belford Bistro, but across the street, "The Dawg House" which has good Dogs, but I think They close early.

Yeah.. Bayonet Farm is a really nice place, but you have to do everything yourself, including liquor, and if you serve liquor, u even need a one day insurance policy. (Ive read most homeowners insurance will give you a 1 day extension for a place you rent, or a standalone company would be like $150).

Holmdel township requires building permits if you want to put a tent up outside, and fire inspection/permits if your caterer needs a generator. and the grey barn does not have bathrooms if i recall correctly, so then you even get into needing to rent a bathroom trailer.

We thought it would be too cumbersome for us to manage everything by ourselves.
