    Hey Angelina, I've been there on a few occasions. The place is ok - they have a pretty short menu and almost everything is average. Definitely not a destination joint. After an order of clams there's really nothing left to get...

      I grew up in and around Hoboken, the home of the original Biggie's. Back in the day it was very good, but now that so many places do this type of food and because quality in general has gone downhill, Biggie's is no big deal (pun intended).

          You're welcome, Angelina. You may want to just try it to see how it is. The food at Biggie's here in Hoboken is not horrible; it's just that you can get the same and even better at many other places in NJ.

        Biggies is out of business at the Asbury location
