Ribs in Monmouth County?

Anyone have a good recommendation for good, finger licking ribs in the Southern Monmouth County area? Eat in or take out is fine!

Suggestion for Tasting Menu in Monmouth County?

A friend is looking to go to a nice restaurant for a tasting for her birthday. She has already done Nicholas and Fromagerie, so those are out.

Any suggestions?

The closer to Marlboro, the better.

Thank you!

Craving Cupcakes in Monmouth County

Hi,

I've been hearing about Crumb's opening in Westfield, and wonder if there are any Monmouth County locations for these sweet treats.

If you have had a gem of a cupcake lately, where was it from?

Thank you!

Le Peep - Shrewsbury?

Oh happy day! I loved the few Le Peep meals I had in the Edison location. Thanks for the heads up!

Reasonably priced dinner around Pt. Pleasant

Going out to dinner with friends on Saturday night. Looking for a nice, reasonably priced dinner around Pt. Pleasant.

My husband said no Wharfside or Lobster Shanty (booooo!).

We're hoping to head to the boardwalk after, so it should be close enough that we're not driving too far afterwards.

Thank you!

Mangosteens spotted in New Jersey.

I saw mangosteens in Shoprite in Neptune. $15.00 for 4 of them!

Colts Neck Area Baby Shower Location

Can you please make a recommendation for a baby shower in the Colts Neck/Marlboro area?

Not picky as to type of food... Open to anything.

Thanks!

I will never go to Don Chuchos again

I had been going to Don Chuchos on Route 35 in Ocean Township for years. My husband and I loved their chimmichangas. Since having a baby, we haven't been out to eat all that often, so we were excited when we decided to venture out with my parents and my 16 month old son.

We ordered a 4 item combination plate with 2 shrimp and 2 chicken. The 2 plates were $30.00 each. We were then told we would be charged an extra $4.00 on each order for a sharing charge. I asked if we could order a salad or soup instead of being charged for nothing. They said "No. You must order another entree".

So they brought out our dinners after almost a 25 minute wait, and each order of chimmis had a side of rice and beans. And for your $4.00, do you get another small side of rice and beans? No.

I called the next day and spoke with the day manager who was very nice, and understanding. She said that the server should have used discretion, and not charge the sharing fee. She told me that she would forward my comments and phone number to the manager, who just called me 10 minutes ago.

He was extremely rude, and tried to explain to me that it's completely within his right (which it is) to charge an extra $8.00 because "he's losing money" on our dinner.

Ask me how he's losing money on 8 chimichangas which totalled $65.00.

Case in point, watch how you order your dinner there. I will never set foot in that place again.

New to the Jersey Shore

No one has mentioned Dos Hermanos de Don Chuchos in Ocean Township, right on Route 35 North (just north of Deal Road). One of my favorite mexican joints.

Dick's Dock in Metuchen

I've only been there once, but it was very kid-friendly when I was there. It was quite "diner-ish". Loved what I got, which was the Chownder.

Dinner at Tavolo in Long Branch tonight

I was there a couple of months back and I wasn't all that impressed. The prices didn't quite match the quality of the entrees. It's a family friendly place vtt7, so you should be fine with that arrangement. Please note that you need to walk up a big flight of stairs to get to the restaurant.
