Absolutely Terrible Breakfast Sandwhich

Got pork roll and egg sandwiches for $5 each said there was extra pork roll if you didnt get cheese on sandwich I would hate to see what not extra pork roll looks like. There were 3 measly thin slices of pork roll. Eggs were burnt, pork roll dried out, roll soggy. One of the worse sandwiches I ever had bought three of them two got thrown out the three of us battled to eat one only because we were hungry. Dont waste your time with this place. FYI look at dates of reviews on other sites obviously done by the owner and their friends. This place is a terrible mess.

        I've been there for dinner, twice. First time was good, second time wasn't. There won't be a third. Second time, ordered twin veal chops. I should know better than to order a high end dish in a low end restaurant.. it was $15.95 or so. The meat was cooked on the outside, but cold and raw on the inside. I spoke to the manager, asked to have it taken off the bill, or at least half the amount. He refused, said the meat was cooked, he put the thermometer in himself. But feel free to get a free appetizer next time, he said. No thanks.

    1. Just curious, capt14K, you seem to really hate everything you tried so far in the Marlboro/Manalapan/Englishtown area. Have you actually found anything edible so far?

        Honestly in the Marlboro/Manalapan/Englishtown area I have not found much Hunan Gourmet and Naka Sushi are good but other than that only Spargos in those areas in Freehold there are plenty. If you know of any I am open to suggestions

        Hunan Gourmet
        357 US Highway 9 Ste 23, Englishtown, NJ 07726

        Naka Sushi Restaurant
        300 Gordons Corner Rd, Manalapan, NJ 07726

        1. capt14k, I can't comment on the mess of a breakfast sandwich you experienced but I tried a "Rocket" breakfast sandwich at Gem's in Hazlet (Toys R US shopping center on Hwy 35) and it was just amazing. Husband & I shared it. Roll, egg, cheese, hash browns, bacon and taylor ham. Cooked to perfection. A real wow.

            I enjoyed a McGriddle this morning ;-)

              I will give it a try since budges closed years ago its hard to find a great breakfast sandwich

                Try the Roadside Diner in Wall just south of the 34/33 circle (northbound lanes). It serves a big phat breakfast sandwich that should suit what you're looking for.

                  Been there many times. Small place but food is good..

            2. It's amazing how a simple sandwich like Taylor Ham, egg and cheese can vary from place to place. I've had delicious Taylor Ham, egg and cheese and horrible ones.

              A good one will start with quality roll and use genuine Taylor Ham, and American cheese. The egg should be fried, over hard. Meat and egg should not be overcooked. There should also be a good balance of meat, egg and cheese. Too much of any will throw the sandwich off.

              A Taste of Reality in Kinnelon makes a great one. G&A in Butler also makes a very good one. Lakeview Deli in Boonton makes an absolutely awful one.

                I prefer a bit of char on the neat. Talyor Ham is a cooked product and is only being reheated.

                  Does anybody know the difference between Trenton Ham and Taylor Ham? I was at Goffle Farm Saturday buying eggs and I noticed they had both next to each other....

                  Looked the same, different name.

                  1. re: Picnicchef

                    Both brands of pork roll, Trenton and Taylor, are made by the Taylor company. Trenton is the "milder" brand, made with less spice. Honestly, however, they taste remarkably similar. At least at the Shore, Trenton Brand is the pork roll of choice in delis.

                      I do not recall the exact numbers, but @ wholesale, Trenton is considerably cheaper than Taylor.....
