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.

    Reliable rumors have a BBQ place opening 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.

        I was not referring to Esme Bistro.

          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?

            Smokey Joe's website with complete menu can be found at:

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

                Looks pretty good. Anyone eaten there?

                  They are currently hoping to be open to the general public next Thursday night.

                    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

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

                          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.
