Mo' Greens Roast House BBQ in Manalapan

Thought I'd give this place its own thread.

This is where "Just Good Food" used to be. Mo' Greens is owned by the same people who run "Mixed Greens" - which is a salad place in the same strip mall.

Ate there tonight with my daughter and in-laws.

I love good BBQ but it is hard to find in this area. This is not good.. it is GREAT. It far exceeded my expectations!

Father in law had 1/2 barbecued chicken. This is not your usual piece of chicken coated with gloppy sauce.. in fact, there was no sauce on it.. didn't need it.. it was dark from being smoked 13 hours, great flavor, tender and moist. Sauce could be added from containers on the table.. regular BBQ sauce (sweet), and a mustardy BBQ sauce. (All sauces are homemade).

MIL and daughter split Yuengling beer battered shrimp. My 20 month daughter loved the shrimp. She tends to be a picky eater like most kids her age but ate really well tonight.

I had a hard time making up my mind, but had the pulled pork platter. A generous mound of pulled pork.. crispy, yet tender. Served dry with no sauce. Came with 3 sides.. I had the confetti slaw. Usually I only like sweet cole slaw.. this was sweet enough, with a hint of vinegar. I also had crinkle cut sweet potato fries.. these were excellent as well.. crispy on the outside, but also moist on the inside. Loved the fried mac n cheese, too. Corn bread is dense, but in a good way. Lightly but not overly sweet.

I asked if they could sell me a rib so I could try them.. they gave me two - no charge! Again, served "dry" with no sauce. Tender, excellent flavor, large ribs with a pronounced smoky flavor. Washed it all down with sweet tea, brewed in house. Sweet tea was the only thing that needs work.. not quite sweet enough.

Dessert was 6 mini fried candy bars. Milky Way, I think. 6 about the size of ping pong balls, maybe a little smaller. Fantastic! They also have home baked pies, like pecan and cherry.

Forgot to mention, I also had an order of 6 wings ($5), with the mild smoky dry rub. Yes, these were great as well. I took a lot of food home. :)

They offer free local delivery and are open 7 days a week. No website yet, though they're working on one. They do have a Facebook page (Mo' Greens Roast House BBQ). They take cash and credit cards.

I am in no way affiliated with this restaurant, just a happy customer who will be returning really soon!
