When you're planning your Jersey Shore vacation, no matter if it is the north or south shore, everyone has their "go to" restaurant. That's the one where you know what you want long before you get there because you've been having it there for years and nobody makes it better.

It doesn't have to be a fancy-schmancy restaurant; it could just be a hole in the wall place that you love or maybe your parents took you there years ago or it still houses great memories of your youth, pictures of which may not be on the wall but placed around the windows of your mind.

The next best go-to place after your favorite is someone else's go-to place. It would have to be the next best because there's none better than yours.

So to help you out when you go back down the shore, or maybe if you want to take a ride this weekend when it would be less crowded, here are some of your best Jersey Shore go-to places as picked by you, my listeners, and Facebook following.

Shut Up and Eat in Toms River. Off Exit 82 and first right after the traffic light on Rt 37. Then 2 blocks down on the right on Main Street. Love the place.

The Ark in Point Pleasant. Fantastic kitchen. Locally sourced ingredients as a rule, their menu states. Great beer selection. Good wine list. Locals hang there, which is good for gossip and recommendations and referrals.

There are so many in my area of the shore, in every price range. Favorites include Steve and Cookies in Margate ($$$ and need reservations) and Smitty's in Somers Point (VERY casual and reasonably priced. No reservations taken ) I love their New England Clam chowder, and clams, prepared in every way we like! Fried fish platter is good..nicely done with some of my favorite fish and shellfish on it. So many more, but that's enough for one post!
