Jersey-Q found a permanent home

For years, we would stop by before turning off Route 322 for our Super Double Secret back way to the shore at the gas station across the way from Wawa... you could smell the hickory smoke before you could see the tent and the sign "BBQ Here"

It's our summer tradition to stop by and say hi to the Jersey-Q guys and pick up a rack of their perfectly cooked ribs with spicy bbq sauce, collard greens, and a half chicken...

we'd sit in the hot, hot heat at the picnic table, with the drinks we just bought at the gas station and tons of napkins and we'd CHOW down on our scrumptious fare

then last year, we were coming home from an off season jaunt to the Wild Woods, heading toward the Commodore Barry Bridge, we saw a sign "Jersey-Q"

My husband nearly caused an accident for how quickly we slowed down and made a "u-bee" to go back

Sure enough! The guys that were seasonal, outside grilling by the gas station now have a real-life sit down eat in or take out restaurant

Lest anybody worry that anything else changed .... I can assure you that everything they serve is still out of this world

From the salty, pork studded collard greens, to the fall off the bone ribs (never too fatty, they really know how to do ribs like nobody else, no wonder they're winning awards left and right) the sweet corn bread is the perfect accompaniment to it all

I highly recommend the next time you're heading over the Commodore Bridge be sure to stop by Jersey-Q and grab yourself some!
