For Matawan, I do question a bunch of the top 10, but I'd definitely include both Abby's on there and also Esposito's Pizza. For Aberdeen, what about Aberdeen Diner?

How is Ciro's not on this list?
Debbie April 04, 2013 at 08:04 PM
I second Aby's!
Joe Smarsh April 04, 2013 at 08:19 PM
Abbate Bakery, bakery not a resturant should not be on the list, also Addison Park not a resturant. Why is Barts of Matawan not on the list. Much better than any Diner

Come on everyone in matawan knows Court Jester belongs up at #1

I'd definitely put Aby's in Matawan's top 10; And with the exception of Denino's the Aberdeen list is way off IMHO.
Michael B April 05, 2013 at 12:22 PM
Definitely Aby's should be high up on this list, and I would add Scotto's Pizzeria (not sure if its Matawan or Aberdeen). Court Jester has horrible food--there's a reason it's not on the list. If you want good beer and fine pub food, Maloney's blows CJ away.
Carmela Grace April 05, 2013 at 01:13 PM
I agree with everyone else ...Abby's should definitely be on the list ..and I think LaStrada should be there too'

Peter's Fishery is just gross. Totally greasy and nasty. I avoid it like the plague.

Park Place Diner in Matawan serves canned chili and charged $8.
Nancey Ryder-Cunningham April 05, 2013 at 08:49 PM
Absolutely Aby's!!!
Edith .R April 06, 2013 at 06:53 AM
I agree with Maloneys being up there... but Disagree that Enzos pizza next to Carvel is not up there. It definitely should be.

What about Amravathi in MATAWAN? It seves the best North Indian and South Indian I have had in Monmouth County and is a tie for #1 as the best I have had in all of NJ and NYC.

I'm impressed that Yelp sorted out that Blue Rock Cafe is in Aberdeen. People usually don't take the time to leave the realm of zip codes and ponder municipal boundaries. Graduates of Old Bridge High are often listed by their college athletic websites as being from Matawan. Thus Big Ed's being on the list. Siam Smiles and Amravathi - are they Matawan or Aberdeen? Are they in Freneau? Of course Aby's and Amravathi should be on the lists. How about the new Portuguese place on 79? I like Court Jester. Last time I went to Maloney's at 9pm on a weekday the place was locked and dark inside.
