The Cabin

Friday, July 17th, 2015

thecabin

The Cabin is a restaurant in Freehold, NJ right off of Rt. 33, and the name is definitely fitting as it looks like just that…. a cabin. This rustic spot was suggested to me by a man who goes by Cash using our Suggest A Joint. I do not hide the fact that I am a big fan of Pic-A-Lilli Inn, and as a former South Jerseyan himself, Cash claims that when he misses his home town, The Cabin is there to fill the void with great wings that remind him of The Pic.

North Brunswick Pub

NorthBrunswickPub

The North Brunswick Pub, or just “The Pub” as it’s known by the locals, is the place where people would go to kick back, unwind, and have a great time. Growing up in Jersey, I’ve been there a bunch of times and it was always packed almost elbow to elbow. So when the time came to meet up with an old friend and grab some grub, the decision was easy: Hop on Rt. 1 and head for The Pub (rhyme).

The Pub is a decent sized place with a large bar area which is great if you like sitting at a stool like myself. It seems that times have changed, however, as I stopped in on a Saturday night and the place was dead. Bad if I came to socialize, but great if I came to eat some wings because this meant quick service. :) And come for wings, I did. So, I took a menu and looked over the options. (read more…)

Quaker Steak & Lube

QuakerSteak

Quaker Steak & Lube is a chain restaurant that started in the seventies as an effort to preserve the look and feel of old style gas stations and muscle cars. They do this so diligently by having old hot rods lifted above the dining room along with Harleys spinning from the ceiling. But the only way to enjoy these pleasures is to get inside. This proved rather difficult for me seeing how Quaker Steak & Lube restaurants are sprinkled around the country and hadn’t made it’s way to New Jersey….yet. So you can imagine my excitement when word hit the street that one was opening up (read more…)

First N’ Ten Sports Pub

I was driving down 295 when I started to get a little rumbling in my belly, and seeing how it was about lunch time, I figured that I would find a place to grab some wings. It just so happens that I was in the Hamilton/Trenton area, and I remember getting a “Suggest a Joint” from Ted who told me that I needed to stop in and grab the wings at First N’ Ten Sports Pub because they are the best. What better chance to feed my craving and check out a local hot spot all at the same time.

I pulled into this rustic looking building on Hamilton Rd, walked into the (read more…)

For the past month or so, my brother-in-law has been trying to coordinate a trip with me to JoJo’s Tavern located in Hamilton, NJ. According to him, they have the best wings in his area, and after many failed attempts to meet up, our schedules finally coincided leaving us JoJo’s bound. So I head into Hamilton, park the car and walk into this small and friendly place. As I take my seat at the bar and (read more…)
