Here's my list of 5 go-to restaurants that you need to, well, go-to and try again or try for the first time.

1. 2 Mile Landing in Wildwood Crest.

Still want to eat outside? You can certainly do that here. They've got plenty of outdoor-on-the-deck seating among the bay and boats.

I've never had a bad meal here. Seafood? Check! All your favorite varieties and combinations! I love the crab-cakes and the scallops - they're my favorites. Also, the drinks are so good here! Orange Crush!

Someone coming from out of town? This is a great place to show them that this ain't the "Joisey" they see on TV.

2. Taco El Tio in Egg Harbor Township.

What's that? Cinco De Mayo? Yeah, you'll find me there!

Love the food, crave the margarita!

I don't know what they do with the steak they use in their fajitas and quesadillas, but it's better than anyone else's! Try the Carne Tampiquella - my personal fave!

Their Pozole soup is also a personal favorite!

3. Vagabond in Egg Harbor Township.

On the golf course. If the weather's cooperative, try to sit on the deck, overlooking the  course.

The Mustang Burger is a delight! Yes, it has pepperoni on it! Yes, it's better than you can imagine. Yes, you'll need the extra napkins. The fries are great, too.

The Prime Rib Dip works, too. Yum.

4. Miami Breeze in Northfield.

Finally ordered food from there. Did it again two days later.

If you're still shy of eating out, you can order this and take home. They have some tables, but it's very casual.

The Caesar Wrap with Jerk Chicken was good, uty I had to steal some of my wife's Birria Tacos - and, that's what I ordered the next time. Honestly, I don't know what "Birria" is or means, I just know that it's good. Shredded beef, onions, cilantro, green peppers and cheese make an excellent combination.

5. Tailgaters Grille in Galloway.

They've got a great space outside or eat insice. My co-worker called Tailgaters a "dive bar." I wouldn't say that, but she has a different definition of the term than I do. Kids....ha! I just called it a good, comfortable place to eat, with great food and drink.

They know how to do burgers, but the "Mile High" is my favorite. Hot Roast Beef and Provolone Cheese. I switch bites between the horseradish and the au jus. Yes, with fries.

 

Happy Eating. Tip Generously!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
