Muscle Maker Grill grew out of a small smoothie shop, where owner Rod Silva prepared health-conscious alternatives to fast food. The restaurant has since expanded with a menu tailored to accommodate diners with vegetarian, carb-free, and gluten-free diets. The crew prides themselves in creating healthy versions of popular foods, and continues to serve the shop’s original protein shakes with favorites such as chocolate peanut butter and strawberry banana. Additionally, Muscle Maker Grill displays the calorie count for each dish on the menu.
Sandwiches, wraps, and salads emerge from Jr's two locations, landing on tables or at patrons' doorsteps. The fresh menu includes grilled salmon, grilled yellowfin tuna steaks, and ground sirloin burger patties, which may be topped with items such as portobello mushrooms, bacon, and fresh-from-the-vine cheeses. Before they're seared on the grill, wraps enfold salsa-topped chicken or mozzarella paired with roasted red peppers, and custom salads top forks with personalized tastes.
The owners of Pop’s Garage know how to run a restaurant. In fact, they have run five of them along the Jersey Shore, as the New York Times points out. At Pop’s Garage, they pour more than 85 years of restaurant experience into their kid-friendly, BYOB Mexican taqueria. While evoking the festive, summer atmosphere of Sayulita, Mexico, the restaurant's ambiance exudes an upscale dining atmosphere.
Pop’s menu consists of made-to-order dishes, each handcrafted from locally sourced, natural, and organic ingredients, including fresh lettuce and vegetables. Taco shells are packed with chicken and chorizo, quesadillas ooze with cheese, and burritos are stuffed with ruby rice. Just as genuine as the ingredients are the recipes they are made from. Explaining to the New York Times, “Our intent is to be authentic. . . . One of [the chefs] makes his mother’s mole, a red mole,” which is just one of the menu’s several mole sauces.
The chefs at Cypress Cafe unite fresh ingredients to form a homestyle menu of warm, pressed panini sandwiches and preservative-free soups made fresh daily. Diners can awaken dormant palates more effectively than by licking a car battery by matching mandibles against the breakfast burrito, bursting at the seams with egg, cheese, and jalapeños ($5.95). A patchwork of steamed veggies blends with hummus and grilled tofu within the hummus vegetable wrap ($6.95), and piping-hot cups of soup ($2.95) warm frigid, empty bellies. Diners quell tumultuous tummies with the chicken-teriyaki wrap, harboring sautéed mushrooms, onions, and peppers ($6.95), or clasp their fingers around an 8-ounce turkey burger ($6.95) that woos tasters with house seasoning and love letters written in ketchup.
Though they all share the same name, all eight of McLoone's Restaurants' locations have their own interior charm. With dining rooms adjacent to off-track betting facilities, McLoone’s Woodbridge Grille and McLoone’s Bayonne Grille are peppered with an energetic ambiance that fills their brightly colored spaces. Televisions at every table keep diners abreast of the results of each race, and the big screens plastered around the restaurants also broadcast NFL, MLB, and college games. Like an indecisive bride’s wedding, each location’s bistro-style menu includes both casual and elegant dishes, from seasoned thai chicken wings and Black Angus burgers to new york strip steak and mango salmon.
