I grew up in Edison, NJ, and have moved back from NYC temporarily, and have been pleasantly surprised to hear of all the offerings in my hometown. However, the reality has been kind of mixed. I've had a good meal at Rasoi on Oak Tree Road, and the burgers at the Menlo Park Diner are as amazing as I remember them. I can still get my favorite fast food, Chick-fil-a, here, when I couldn't get them in NYC.
But the memories of Friendly's and Tastee Sub from my childhood don't quite live up to the reality, and the new Five Guys Burgers (a DC favorite) that recently opened up at Woodbridge Mall is a poor substitute for the city's Burger Joint or Shake Shack.
I'm looking for more places to try now... Any suggestions? Thanks!
