Woody's Tinton Falls, NJ

Just giving some love to a solid local spot, Woody’s. While @seal likes to say 1st Ave in Atlantic Highlands is the best foodie street in Monmouth County, I’m going to call the corner of Sycamore and Tinton Ave in Tinton Falls to be the best foodie corner in Monmouth County. While I’m not claiming any of the restaurants to individually be the “best” you really can’t go wrong at any of the three locations there.

MJ’s solid sushi, pizza, sandwiches and general nosh type food. Woody’s a bit of a step up with solid fish, salads taco’s and some decent steaks etc. Finally Garguilo’s for very solid sit down Italian food. Includes the Dunkin, TF deli and newly added Nicolas Creamery and what more could anyone ask for within a 2 minute walk of each other!!!

I had short rib tacos and the Mrs. had a aloha bowl. The complimentary chips and pico are always fresh and delicious. Not pictured a very good French onion soup and drunken clans which we both enjoyed. Great quick meal at a very convenient location for us.


Noticed on thread.
If any of you like spice and flavor, can grill, and haven’t tried this as a marinade…get thee some Gochujang quick-like.


Pork tenderloin with gochujang marinade. Get the mild unless you really like the heat.
