Full disclosure: I am not a BBQ expert, and I haven't eaten a lot excellent BBQ in my life.
Went to Surf BBQ with a group of friends yesterday and we basically ate everything on the menu. Pretty much everything was top shelf awesome, but I especially enjoyed the non standard items like the pastrami beef ribs and bacon. Really phenomenal. A crowd favorite was the Mexican style chicken. The brisket was exceptionally fatty and juicy in the best way, the pulled pork was incredibly moist and tender with the perfect hit of smoke.
All of this deliciousness came at a price though - the tab was around 35 bucks a person (without tax), which is pretty steep for BBQ. Their beers are also pretty pricey, some of them clocking in at 7 bucks a pop.
I think this is probably the best BBQ I've had in NJ and it compared well to the best BBQ I've had elsewhere. I think considering the dearth of alternative dining options in our area I'm excited to return if last night's quality is their standard.
