Pappy's Pig Roast BBQ
205 Roosevelt Blvd
Marmora, NJ 08223
Summer tends to include more travel and thus, opportunities for adventurous eating. For us, this year we visited most of our usual summer stops, reviewed other years on Evans' Eats. We have one noteworthy place to share with you.
As we headed to the Jersey shore my husband was determined to find a roadside BBQ stand. Nearing our destination, we were losing hope in finding one when Pappy's appeared. Though we stopped in their actual restaurant, the sighting of a parked food truck gave us hope that we may have found something to meet our goal.
We had a delectable, filling meal to start off our family vacation in Ocean City, NJ. The vast menu has something for the entire family--it includes items of a traditional pizza shop like pizza, cheesesteaks, and some intriquing sandwiches (like Italian Chicken Florentine-breaded chicken, topped with roasted red peppers, spinach, sauce & cheese, $6.99 or 9th St. Pork Sandwich, roasted pork with sauteed spinach, garlic, roasted red peppers, & provolone cheese, $8.95.
But, I chose to stay true to our original plan and order a Carolina Pork BBQ sandwich ($6.99), with your options of BBQ sauce--I ordered the mild version (vinegar base). They offer a variety of cultural twists from Southern, Carolina, German (topped with sauerkraut), Italian (sauteed spinach and garlic) and Jersey (topped with slaw). We chose sides of mashed sweet potatoes and baked beans, but the large sandwiches would have been sufficient!
In viewing their website, Pappy's also offers carry-out packages and catering. Overall, a viable stop on your way to or from the Jersey shore!
