You will be able to place a bet on horse racing and order some crab fries all at the same time at the EHT Chickie's and Pete's if a new proposal gets approved.

The New Jersey Racing Commission will, "...consider a proposal later this month to establish an off-track betting facility at the bar and crab house on Route 322 in the English House Plaza strip mall. A public hearing will be held on March 21 at 7 p.m. at the township municipal building on Bargaintown Road."  That's according to

Township Mayor James McCullough says he's all for it.  Again, according to,

McCullough said the proposal to establish an off-track betting parlor here has been in the works for four years. He said Chickie's & Pete's will likely expand their facility to accommodate more patrons.
