Looking for great food in Hershey, Allentown, or Newark NJ

I know it sounds crazy, but I have a hockey filled weekend going to Hershey for a game sun evening, and Newark NJ for a game Mon night. Looking for great food in either destination (or somewhere in between, like Allentown) to have something to do on Sun Eve/Mon daytime. Prefer something not overly pricey, and also something casual. Any suggestions welcome!!

  1. There's an awesome restaurant about 15 minutes south of Hershey in Elizabethtown, PA. Its called TJ Rockwell's and is a favorite around the area. The food is amazing and they have an extensive selection of beers (both on tap and in bottles). You can't be in a big hurry to get in and out of there; the wait can be rather lengthy if you're going during prime meal times. http://www.tjrockwells.com/

    As for your Newark, NJ inquiry, there are some great spanish and portugese restaurants along Rt 21 (McCarter Hwy). Some are on the pricey side, but others are more reasonable.
