BBQ in NJ?

ganeden Feb 5, 2007 10:06 AM


My sister told me there was a new BBQ joint in NJ opening soon. Just wanted top know more about it. When it opens, please review it. Being out in LA, I won't have access to it for a while.

      Looks pretty impressive. I am sad to see they don't offer "links." I was hoping for some smoked Kosher sausage if it is truly Texas style!

      Overall, looking forward to reviews and trying it ourselves.

        Maybe that's the holdup--getting hashgacha. Clearly, a BBQ restaurant offering non-dairy sour cream is likely a kosher place. :-)

          OK so is Smokey Joes Kosher - id assume so from the location and the descriptions on the menu - but there is no mention of the status on the website

                  Prices aren't bad. Thanks for the link. I might have to plan a trip up to Teaneck after Pesach for some Q.

                      There is a "Texas BBQ" named "Smokey Joe's" coming to Cedar Lane in Teaneck (in the old Jerusalem Pizza/Cho Sun Restaurant space). Is this what you are referring to?

                        I was not referring to Esme Bistro.

                          A glatt kosher steakhouse (Esme Bistro) opened recently on Cedar Lane in Teaneck.

                            Any feedback on Esme Bistro. I was thinking of having a party there and have heard mixed reviews.

                              I made a party there about 3 weeks ago for 65 people and all my guests loved it. I heard they hired a new chef - the food was delicious.

                            Reliable rumors have a BBQ place opening on Cedar Lane in Teaneck.
