Panera's, Gus's and Turning Point in the same category as Spargo's?
Anthony Manfre May 01, 2013 at 02:30 PM
Peking - def the best. Carluccios and Brioso are in Marlboro

Spargos is probably one of the worst restaurants I have ever been too.

Meredith's New Orleans Cuisine is closed

Trattoria Ravello should be first on the list!

I can't believe that some of the above are actually listed as restaurants. My choices are: Peking Pavillion Molino's Italian Kitchen Brioso - Marlboro Metropolitian Cafe - Freehold LaRosa Sorry I had to pick some that aren't in Manalapan, I don't think there are 10 good one's.

I disagree. My son has a milk allergy and they prepared their Hanger Steak special without dairy including the dipping sauces. This is real food without the salty, sickening sauces. Everything is prepared to order just like home! You stated, "....one of the worst restaurants I have ever been too." Well, provide solid reasons/examples.

Only good restaurant in the area is Brioso.. The rest are okay.. Most are pizzeria quality..
Karenk May 02, 2013 at 01:52 PM
Sad.. Turning point and panera considered "best". We need more diverse restaurants around here. So sick if Italian and Chinese
Karenk May 02, 2013 at 01:54 PM
Brioso is Marlboro no?

Patrica Meyers can't even spell - how can you take her word for what's good in a restaurant? Spargo's is the finest restaurant in Manalapan. We have alot of good ones, but Spargo's is above the rest. Carol

I told agree with you Judy, Brioso is The Best and the rest pizzeria quality or you travel to north jersey
Mary P. May 03, 2013 at 12:21 AM
Spargo's needs to change there menu,

There is only one very good restaurant in Manalapan....and it's Peking Pavillion. All others have issues with service. Many of the ones mentioned are fair to good. Nick

Spargos has new specials every weekend. Always something different and its always good. Carol

My top 2 favorites are ..... Peking Pavillion and Brioso ...!! Two different palates .....but in my opinion the best !!!
Joiseymom May 07, 2013 at 03:01 PM
Moms...really? That place is disgusting. My daughter and I got violently ill last time we were there! Haven't been back since. Gross! And Hunan Gourmet? UGH...they are vile, unless you like eating salt. With all the chinese restaurants we are surrounded by you picked the worst. Just saying...
