Any good places for dinner near Secaucus?

I'll be attending the Beatlefest convention in March and am looking for some good, but not high-end, places for dinner.

Last year we found the Tick-Tock Diner and enjoyed that for breakfast.

    You could try Park and Orchard in E. Rutherford. Excellent wine and beer selection - the food is great with large portions. It is just off Route 3 & 17. Price of an entree about $17.00 - $20.00 - not too high end. They do not take reservations, but have a bar you can wait at.

      For Spanish food, there's Segovia in Moonachie, which is only a few minutes away. Very reasonable prices.


      Also right near Segovia is Bazzarelli, a family-owned Italian place. Also very reasonable prices.

        Trillo's is an Italian restaurant that has a "Sunset" prix fixe menu during the week I believe, and the food and atmosphere is nice. It's located off of Meadowlands Pkwy. in Secaucus, across the street from the Wendy's.

          Trillo's is one of my favorite restaurants in the North Jersey area, Italian or otherwise. The food is consistently above average to excellent, especially for the price. And the Petrillo family always makes their customers, new and long-time, feel at home. It's one of those increasingly rare restaurants where they will take special requests and make you items not on the menu or substitute veggies for pasta or saute in oil rather than butter. The staff is also friendly and courteous and will go the extra mile. Since it's a BYOB, they'll store your wine, beer or liquor if you're a regular or you can go around the corner of the shopping center and pick up a bottle at the local shop.

          Definitely check it out if you haven't already and let us know what you think!

          I really like the Bonefish Grill, 200 Mill Creek Drive in the Mill Creek Annex in Secaucus. It's no more than a 15 minute drive from your hotel, with plenty of parking at the mall. Prices are reasonable, good quality, and a nice wine selection. Yes, it's a chain, but one of the better ones I've ever tried.

          Enjoy 'Fest!
