The Committed Pig - Manasquan

It's a new spot that opened. They serve a casual menu, brunch items all day than dinner - which is pretty much the same stuff. Here's the website: What I thought was clever, honestly, was the pork roll section of the menu. Good idea, right? Take a Jersey thing and make it worth exploring - this is the Shore after all. Places have had a burger section forever, it's time for a pork roll section.

Pancakes, grilled cheese, burgers, salads, etc. each have their own piece of the menu (which I suppose you can see on the link so I didn't have to explain . . .) It's BYO. The burgers are made with the La Frieda blend and served on a potato roll (except the burgernut - think about the name, you'll get the "bread" they use - especially if you like Paula Deen).

Personally, I found the Yelp reviews of the place to be a blast: One guy says there is no pork on the menu except bacon. Oh, I'm sorry, I guess it was hard to notice the Taylor Ham section dead center on the menu . . . Then some lady complains about tap water being served and the information on the menu. Maybe it's just me, but isn't tap water pretty much the standard everywhere that serves food below the 30 dollar price point? Oh, and the menu on the site is exactly the same as the one they provide you in the place.

Bottom line . . . I enjoyed the food I have had at the Pig and will likely head back for a Sunday lunch or two, six pack in hand. I, however, really enjoyed the Yelp reviews of the place - Wow!

Edit - I should have noted that we have been there a couple times, managed to keep it under 30 bucks with tax and tip, the "illy dilly" burger had two patties, and the pork roll sandwich came with hash brown patties (think McDonalds in shape and form).
