There is no other meal for me than a steak dinner with all the trimmings. Baked potato, mushrooms, onions. I'd throw some broccoli rabe into the mix as well, but that's me. You could call it my "Happy Meal." Sing: "You deserve a steak today!"

I like them medium rare, marbled. I also eat the fat, which I find most flavorful. My wife tells me it could kill me, but what a way to go. Then again, it's not like I'm eating steak every day; but oh how I wish I were.

New Jersey has some of the most incredible places for the most succulent steaks. Surprisingly, they're not all steakhouses.

I'm a huge fan of 'The Pub' in Pennsauken where you can see your steaks being cooked in a brick wall of ovens. How could you possibly look at that view and smell that smell that should be made into an air/car freshener and order anything else?

So I asked my social following, who are also steak lovers, 'Where's the best steak house in Central Jersey, and what's the best steak to order when you get there?'

Surprisingly, they're not all steakhouses, nor is steak their specialty; but it should be.

"'Four Winds' is just off rt 35 at the Manasquan circle in Manasquan, and their prime rib' is the best also."
Steve Eccles

"Personally, I like 'Four Winds'. It’s not a traditional steak house but they have a killer cowboy prime rib."
Steve Dassing

If I was at a steak house, I would get the ribeye.

"No one will believe me, but the best steak I have had in a very long time actually comes from Casa Giuseppe in Iselin. Best ribeye I’ve had. It’s not on the printed menu. It’s like the best-kept secret. I’ve been in the business for a long time and nothing has come close. Their steak is legit!"

50 Most Popular Chain Restaurants in America

YouGov investigated the most popular dining brands in the country, and Stacker compiled the list to give readers context on the findings. Read on to look through America's vast and divergent variety of restaurants—maybe you'll even find a favorite or two.

An amazing NJ restaurant in a historic building

If you've never been to Lambertville, you're really missing out on a true gem of a town in New Jersey.

And if you've never been to Lambertville Station you're missing out on a really great restaurant in a truly historic building.

It's housed in the building that acted as the Lambertville train station dating back to 1867.

The building and the town went through its tough times, but for the last 40 years, Lambertville Station has been serving diners in a casual upscale atmosphere with excellent food.

Last year a prominent restaurant group called Genesis Hospitality took over the historic dining spot and they've continued the excellence that has made this place a must-go-to spot anytime you're in town.

The menu consists of varied contemporary American favorites with plenty of options.

The food and the service are excellent and are a good fit for couples, families, and special occasions.

There is a first-class Inn on the property on the river across the parking lot if you want to stay over.
