Your suggestions for LA hound visiting Swedesboro?

What are your favorite chowish places in and around Swedesboro? I'd love to taste the local flavors!

I'm a hungry chowhound visiting Swedesboro (from Los Angeles) and would really appreciate it if you would suggest some grubbin places around Swedesboro.

I'll be there for 5 days for work (Sunday thru Thursday). Thanks again!

  1. Well, I haven't been there yet to eat, but you might want to check out Swedes Inn. They're part of the SJ Hot Chefs group, which is an organization of owner/chefs promoting South Jersey restaurants and using local farmers for their food. In reading the menu, it's clear that not everything is from Jersey, but they may be worth a try. Here's a link:

    There's also a few places nearby that you might find interesting: Nifty Fifty's, a local chain of '50s-style malt shops, in Turnersville; Creole Cafe in Sewell; and Pelican Fish Company, which looks like a more upscale seafood place, also in Sewell.

    If you try any of these places, let me know. I'm curious to try them myself.

    Enjoy your stay in Gloucester County.

      Nifty Fiftys is great for milkshakes and Texas Tommys, everything I have tried at Pelican Fish I have enjoyed, same with Creole Cafe (blackened catfish is terrific). San Miguel in Sewell for Mexican is also very good. Try Fat Jack's for excellent BBQ.
