@CurlzNJ See my review of El Sierra above. Post #40 and the few after it.
@VikingKaj We eat at or from Cielito Lindo in Manasquan often as it is 5 minutes from us and I pass it on my home from work. Their food is very good. Is it the best? I don’t know but we like it a lot. They also have a place in Belmar which I hear is “fancier”.
Two others to add to your list briefly mentioned above:
1633 Route 71
Bradley Cafe (only open for breakfast and lunch. Closed Tuesdays)
720 Main Street
