Pop's Garage, Asbury

Was enjoying a beautiful Sunday afternoon on Asbury's beaches and took a walk up to the boardwalk for a quick bite. Figured I'd try Pop's Garage, since I love Langosta so much.

Sat at the counter and received prompt service, but noticed that they were short-staffed and many other people waited quite some time to order, get food, and/or pay bill. Another woman standing next to me must have waited a solid ten minutes to pay before anyone acknowledged her. Also, noticed in the half hour I was there, previous diner's empty, dirty plates and glasses remained on counter top the entire time and we're never cleared. Service clearly a major issue here.

Onto the food. I ordered one fish taco ($3.50) and grilled Cuban corn on the cob ($4.00 I think). Taco came out first, then corn, several minutes later. Taco was very small and skimpy with only about three or four small bite size pieces of fish. Wish I had ordered two. It tasted good though. The corn was awesome. It was grilled with what I think was parmesean cheese, butter, and chili powder and served with lime wedges. THAT I'd go back for again and again.

It's a cute little place, but they seriously need to take care of the service issues here. I watched a couple of people come up to counter and leave after not being acknowledged for several minutes.

I would however, go back for some of that corn and to try the other tacos. Good, cheap eats.
