Good Restaurants in Burlington County, NJ

ArtemisNYC Dec 2, 2006 09:36 PM

I just moved to the Pemberton area, southern NJ, and am seeking recos on great places to chow down there. I'm very partial to Italian, Japanese and Mexican, but please feel free to let me know of any noteworthy establishments!

    You might also try Palermo's on Route 206 just north of Bordentown. We live an hour north and stop by whenever we are in the area. Their specialty is the tomato pie

      There are a few places in the area that have more 'foodie' menus than most if you are looking to stay local. Cafe Gallery in Burlington has a nice menu and views of the Delaware River. Robin's Nest in the historic are of Mt. Holly is a nice little place. Charley's Other Brother on Monmouth Road in Easthampton/Mt. Holly, while doesn't have a real CH menu has a wonderful wine cellar. If I recall it was recognized for the wine selection a few years back. There are a few nice Italian place in Medford with decent menu. Feminia is one and a BYOB. You can purchase wine there from the local Valenzano winery. Again, we in Burlington County aren't in the hotbed of restaurants but there are a few suggestions that I hope will help.

        Thanks for the tips, medford. I've been poking around Burlington Co. and finding a few places to nosh. I've already eaten at Charley's Other Brother a few times, and overall I think it's good, though their lunch specials and sandwiches are better than their dinner menu. Sebastian's Schnitzelhaus in Wrightstown also has some pretty tasty dishes, and I found some of the best home fries at Tootie's in New Egypt.

        Speaking of Mt. Holly, there's a Mexican place called Taqueria Reyes that recently opened there. I'll post a dispatch once I try their stuff - soon, I hope.

        Eugene's has not reopened, and I've never ssen Kim's Cafe. I'm guessing you mean heading to Ft. Dix. Could it be on Lakehurst Road?

          OK, I was woondering if you meant that tiny place the international cafe. It is no longer called that from the last few times I drove by it.

          No, it is not Lakehurst road and it actually is quite near Eugene's. It's on the same road as Burger king (at the light) and the strip mall opposite it. The same side of the road and on the same road of that little drive-in Ice Cream stand place.

          LoL still vague I know, but I am in NYC away from my car and GPS.

            The road you are refering to is "Pemberton-Browns Mills Road" aka county route 530. The drive in ice cream stand became Broadway and was a sandwich shop. I don't recall ever seeing the International Cafe. Any info you can find would help. Down the road from the Broadway there is a sandwich shop called "The Hungry Piney" that gets raves from the locals. Even a small sandwich is huge, and they use great bread. It belongs to the same person who owns the "Country Lakes Pub" on Lakehurst Road east, toward route 70. Warm weather brings "Bubbas ribs" to the Piney, where they set up a smoker in the back. Otherwise, pizza or take out Chinese.

          I know that Brown's Mills is a small town...but the directions of "it's on the left hand side as your (sic) leaving" doesn't tell much!

          i am guessing that the one in the center of town, was Eugene's? Has that re-opened? It had a fire in the building and was closed.

            Sorry to be so vague. The place I spoke of is hard to find. They do not have a phone number and are not listed. I believe they are located on the road you would take into BM from the Community College. The place is refered to as Kim's or the International cafe. It does not look like a rest. In fact it is a house and mom cooks out of the kitchen. They have the best dumplimgs. Several years ago, Leban (I think) did a review of this place and other Korean rest in BM. I will try to get better detail.

              I'd really appreciate it if you can find more details about this place. I love Korean food, and haven't had any here since I moved!

            There are several really great Korean rest. in your area. One is called Kim's cafe on the left hand side as your leaving Browns Mill. Thier is one other in the center on town (can't think of the name) which is a little fancier.

              Been in the Pemberton area myself for 3 years, from Central Jersey. Unfortunately there are no good restaurants in our immediate area. I good meal will require a drive.
