Asbury Park Restaurant Tour

I enjoy Talulas but don't feel the need to hype it since it will be crowded enough come summer.
Maybe Dino's is getting their act together, I only went once after they opened and wasn't impressed.

10 of the Shore's top spots for pork roll

You can slice it as thick or thin as you want, I prefer thin. And definitely cook it in a pan.
I too am a southerner by now live in NJ and love Taylor Ham/pork roll.

I also love the pork roll fries at Bond Street in Asbury Park

Seafood City

I am not over 50 but fast approaching and remember them very well. Once woke up outside of seafood pretty in a car after a long night of drinking

Popeyes Love

Exactly, the skin was not crispy at all. I bought it strictly to make gumbo as a fried turkey makes incredible stock for the gumbo and it was lacking

Popeyes Love

The fried turkey isn't that great, and I love Popeyes.

Asbury Beer Garden (Biergarten)

They have the same seating at their place in Hoboken, it was never an issue there. Usually if I go I'm with enough people that we take up most of the table or I just sit at the bar.

The place had lines down the block when it was 20 degrees outside. They have done a great job on social media before the place opened. Summer will be terrible around there as the roof deck can hold another 700 people I think. If parking is bad now, just wait till summer.

I'm looking outward to the new place of theirs on Cookman, it can't open soon enough.

Top 20 Burgers at the Shore

I've tried other locations of smash burger, they are good.

Pascale and Sabine should be on the list

Restaurants you despise, but continue to dine at anyway.........

I went to Clancy's Tavern in Neptune a few times after bad experiences but after our last visit I haven't stepped foot back in there.
I can only take so much for convenience

Food Trucks Coming To Asbury...

The crappy restaurants on the boardwalk should be concerned.
But as these can't sell booze, people will still go to the brick and mortar places to drink and eat

A death in the business

I spent many days and nights at the Chimes, lived a couple of blocks away for a while and am still friend with many that worked there.
They did it well

THE ASBURY PARK FESTHALLE & BIERGARTEN . . .ESSEN!

Yes, didn't think I needed to put the name as it's the only one in Hoboken

THE ASBURY PARK FESTHALLE & BIERGARTEN . . .ESSEN!

The place is printing money right now, drove by Wednesday and it was packed.
The roof deck has a capacity for 450 people so summer will be crazy there.

Same owners as the one in Hoboken, food is good not great there but it's all about the beer anyway.

Absolute don't miss

American Sector is no longer run by Besh. The group that runs is also does the concessions in the some from what I hear, so it may not be as good as it once was

Fried Chicken

Wife and I stopped at Jamison's today, she really liked the fried chicken and she's pretty picky about it.

just on this side of the river?

I would pick them up and drive over to Jersey City and go to either the Liberty House or Maritime Parc, both in Liberty State Park.
Fantastic views of NYC and the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island as well

Toast - Asbury Park

We go to Toast on the rare occasion we have more than four people in our party. Normally would hit Franks or Porta or Pascale and Sabine.
The service at Toast has never impressed me

Wayne, New Jersey

I went there once, it wasn't bad but I wouldn't say it was great.
I see by te sign that it's now a diner so it looks like they may have gotten away from all burgers
