Earlier this year, I spent a couple of days polling people on food sites to ask them which of their favorite eateries they think Guy Fieri and his crew from “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives should visit here In New Jersey.
I went back to the boards recently to ask the fine residents of New Jersey what they would add to the original list that was posted in January of 2023. They came up with a bunch of great places. Not all of them are Diners, Drive-In, or Dives, but I think they qualify in other aspects of the show. There may be 1 or 2 repeats on this current list.
Lots of passionate people weighing in, some of whom downright swear that some of these fantastic eateries or hidden gems are the best of the best at doing what they do.
A few bars, a handful of diners Guy hasn’t been to in the Garden State, and a food truck or 2. I think my next vacation will be a road trip focused on the food here in the Garden State. I’ll make sure there’s a gym nearby because I love to eat, maybe a little too much.
