Possible new restaurants in Jamesburg

Next to the Wawa on Route 535 in Jamesburg they are rapidly constructing what appears to be a 25-30 unit strip mall. I would expect it to have the standard pizzeria, Chinese take out and dry cleaner, but I'm hoping for a good restaurant or two. Does anybody know what the plans are for this development?

  1. Well almost a year later, and only 3 or 4 of these units have tenants. One of them is called "Simply Jerk", a Jamaican restaurant that has yet to open. I never tried Jamaican but likely try this when it opens.

      A little bit north of there on 535 is another strip mall with a great seafood restaurant - Mare.

      Hopefully the new mall by Wawa gets at least one place worth visiting.

        I saw this "Simply Jerk" place yesterday and got excited. My family was not as excited as me, so we did not eat there. I did find a Facebook presence, and positive Yelp reviews, so maybe someday I'll get time off for good behavior and I can head back that way.

          You gave me an idea for dinner tonight and since I always meant to get around to trying it, I picked up some jerk chicken with brown rice and plantains. It was all really good. I also got a Jamaican ginger beer soda. I've only ever had ginger beer before in mixed drinks. I'd go back.
