I'm always on the lookout for great restaurants in the Garden State.

My biggest issue now is that with all of the events and travel I haven't had a lot of time to sit down and take in a long relaxing meal!

That said, I am making the effort to get to all the restaurants around the Garden State that our listeners say you simply can't miss.

Earlier in the week, I listed the best pasta places and restaurants to hit at the shore.

Today, I thought we'd spotlight South Jersey and a list of a few of the listeners' faves.

I can personally vouch for Graziano's in Chesilhurst having been there a few times with our good friends Steve and Tami from Dylan's RV!

Here are a few more that our listeners thought you can't miss.

I have a plan to hit Evergreen Dairy Bar soon as they also have a car show in their lot every week and we may be organizing an event around that.

Until then, check out these places and give 'em your business. If you have a business, you'd like to recommend to our largest-in-the-state audience please send me a note through the free New Jersey 101.5 app.
