Pepe's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By jwolinsky - Watchung, New Jersey

This is an old fashioned family owned Italian restaurant and pizzeria. We shared a meal among the five of us that included the margherita pizza, penne vodka with chicken, eggplant rollatini, chicken rollatini, and eggplant parmigiana. Everything was excellent and the server, Sandy, was very friendly and attentive. It is also a BYOB. The prices are very reasonable, but they only take cash. I think we have just found our new favorite Italian restaurant. We will definitely be back!

This is a great place for drinks and food and live entertainment. Live classic rock bands on Friday night and typically club music on Saturday nights. Hey have a separate sit down eating area inside and during the summer outside tables with full service.

I gave it 4 stars because it is pretty pricey. But they are always changing the menu up and service is typically good.

Also, last time we were there 5 different fights broke out. It seems like they are attracting a younger crowd because it's a great place to hang and no places around it like it.

When you step in the CoffeeBox, it's like stepping into a hip downtown NYC cafe. Very cozy, modern and vibrant. All of their pastries are fresh and made in-house and the coffee is out of this world. I had been a long time Starbucks drinker,...MoreHi Kate - Thanks for your kind review. Of course we would like more people to find this neighborhood gem. People deserve great coffee!

Silk Road

Reviewed By maxinedds - Westfield, New Jersey

Good food with a very helpful staff. The Dumplings are so light and airy the melt in you mouth. The chutneys and sauces are fresh accompaniments. The rice dishes are wonderful and if you can't decide what you want with you dinner they'll let you split your order. The chicken and lamb chop dinners are good choices. Dinners come with a small salad and soup. Usually there are leftovers for lunch. The piping hot fresh bread is amazing!

This DQ can get very busy during the summer - lines can be out the door. But it's been run by the same family for 40 years and they have a good system in place to keep things moving so the wait is never too long. They have a limited non ice cream menu but we like their chili dogs. And of course the ice cream and ice cream cakes are always good.

Ok. This place had me at “hello lobster fra diavolo” with its amazing, giant messiness and flavors. This place gets very crowded and it’s not a romantic place - you come here to eat and socialize. The service is fast, friendly. Recommended for a fun, yummy night out.

Dunellen Hotel

Reviewed By Terry M - Marstons Mills, Massachusetts

While visiting my daughter and son-in-law in NJ we went over to the Dunellen Hotel on a snowy evening. We have been there several times and always been pleased. One of the specials that night was a stuffed pork chop that was the biggest thing I've ever seen. Three in our party opted for this and thought it was delicious. Only one was able to actually finish it. I was looking for comfort food and found it in a huge chicken parm dish. It was excellent. A great evening of good food and good conversation!
