Good deals in Secaucus area - American or Italian

  • g

Any good deals in Secaucus, Rutherford or Lyndhurst (or closeby) Looking for a place that will serve bread, salad, meal and possibly dessert for a reasonable price.

  1. There's a Spanish place on Rte 17 (Ridge Rd.) in Lyndhurst, whose name I can't remember, but it's the only place in the neighborhood with a huge lobster painted on the wall. It's just south of Rte. 3. I haven't been there for dinner, but at lunch they offer an enormous amount of food for $8.95, including soup or salad (had an okay sausage/beans/greens soup there; salad looked like iceberg), entree (standard stuff, I think. I'm not so familiar with Spanish food, but the shrimp in green sauce was pretty good, extra-garlicky, and there must have been 3/4 lb of shrimp there), lots of bread, FRESH POTATO CHIPS served warm (!!!) and dessert, which everyone at my table skipped because they were too full. I imagine dinner would be a little more pricey, but in amazingly generous quantities.

      I just noticed you weren't looking for Spanish, but if you're willing to be a little flexible, the place is highly worthwhile.

        Thanks, I have passed that place many times and always wondered if it was any good.

      La Estrella del Caribe is Dominican (I believe) and is pretty reasonably priced. It is alongside route 3 (service road) near Secaucase, heading East.
