After hearing about the poppers I had to stop and eat in. They were great! Also had a chopped brisket sandwich which was OK, I much prefer JSBBQ's chopped brisket. In any case I will be checking them out again...

Thai Chilies in Eatontown

Been there a few times when Thai Chilies, always liked the food. The lack of a credit card machine near the closing was kind of a pain, but there is an ATM next door. Looking forward to checking out the new joint. That location has been through lots of changes since it was Fred's Diner when I was a kid!

Frankly Burgers and More in Freehold

Finally got a chance to check out Frankly today. Got a Texas burger medium with fries and slaw, enjoyed it. Friendly service!

Since I work close by in Freehold on occasion, definitely will be back. Definitely looking forward to checking out the Italian style hot dogs of which I have had a few good ones in my lifetime!

BOOM is now Jersey Shore BBQ

Just got the same email.

I wondered what the pig on the door was when I was there last week... big shoes to fill.

Guess I know what I'm going to have to do sometime this week... Hmmmm... could burgers sourced from Pat Lafrieda be on the menu? THAT would be good...

Boom in Belmar

I just pulled up expecting to go in for a Chickaboom sandwich. Damn. I'd been in pretty regularly but did not detect a thing.

Too bad. I'll have to mourn as I did my beloved Atlantic BBQ a few doors down.

RIP Boom. I had a few good meals there.
Fortunately 10th. Ave. Burrito is open for business...

Brickwall (Asbury Park)

Was there a couple of weeks ago, have to concur... had the strip steak. I was expecting more flavor. One of my sides was the collard greens... needed more cooking time... mashed potatoes were good.

Cheesecake

Niko's Trapezi in Long Branch has killer cheesecake. Had some last night, chocolate marble with chocolate ganache... dayum!!! I've also had the pumpkin and plain, all excellent!

I was looking forward to trying a couple of those "non-burgerish" items and was initially disappointed when they were not there(like the pork loin sandwich) last time I was in. A Chickaboom sandwich fixed that! :-p... I've also had the great mushroom soup a couple times as well...

I liked the old fries but the new ones are excellent too!

Foodie destination - Lincroft?

Thai is a favorite for me so this thread surely will influence my decision of where to go for lunch sometime soon... nice and close as I work right up Newman Springs at BCC...

Boom in Belmar

Went back yesterday and had the hot wings as an appetizer... sauce gave me the sniffles but those wings were excellent! And that chunky bleu cheese... :-p... I got a side of the wing sauce for dipping my fries. Got the classic cheeseburger with cheddar jack this time around.

I brought my GF this trip and she had the Boom salad which was pretty tasty. She had a classic cheeseburger with the garlic string beans which were good too. She did return her burger as it was more done than she had ordered, though the replacement was exactly what she wanted.

Was tempted to get that dessert with the cheesecake in the shell but I'll have to do that when the "sheriff" isn't with me... heh heh

Thanks for the tip on the hot sauce... probably will end up at Boom today to try some, having had to deal with some not so good stuff over the weekend while down in VA...

UVA Restaurant and Wine Bar Bradley Beach NJ

I was there not long ago and also had the short rib... most excellent as was the gnocchi. Definitely a go-to dish. My girlfriend had a fish dish that I can't remember because I was so into my short rib... but she enjoyed it. We shared a salad of arugula, beets, blood orange and goat cheese that was also very nice. Service was friendly and attentive.

Glad something good is now there because I sure miss Piancone's...

Boom in Belmar

I hit Boom today after work after perusing the reviews here. At 3:30 I pretty much had the place to myself. Sat at the counter. I started with the chili, good but a few shakes of Tabasco bumped it up to my liking.

I must concur with the OP on the quality of the burgers. Ordered my Boom Burger medium, came perfectly cooked as were the fries. Worked out that I was finishing my chili up just before the burger came out giving it a little bit of time to rest. Absolutely enjoyed it, juicy and flavorful. There was just enough room flavor-wise for a little salt and pepper. Service was attentive and friendly, nice atmosphere. Chatted with the chef a bit and he says the owners are going to stick with it, I hope so.

I'll definitely be back to try out some of the other menu items... I'm intrigued by the wings!

Been to BBP a couple of times, Boom is better IMO.

Going here was sort of a homecoming as my favorite BBQ place once resided a few doors down at 805 where Viva's is now(Atlantic BBQ RIP)
