If you're heading over the the Outlets in Tinton Falls to shop, picking up supplies from Home Depot or Restaurant Depot, or picking up a prescription from Walgreens on Rt. 66, here's an excellent option for breakfast, lunch or dinner off Jumping Brook Road and Rt. 66!

It's called "Crave, Your Local Eatery" and it originally opened last fall by husband and wife team Angela and AJ Addeo who are both excellent chefs and have run a catering business for a long time

Of course, as Covid affected us all, it affected them. Angela and AJ were forced to close for several weeks, but reopened this summer and are now adding incredible, exciting and creative fall dishes like the most delicious Chili and Mac & Cheese that I have ever tasted!

In fact, you may have seen me at Crave Your Local Eatery -- I was there this past Saturday and enjoyed meeting so many wonderful Point listeners!

This restaurant is such a great addition to an area where your options are limited in terms of grabbing a meal that is fresh, home-cooked, and delicious.

They have an adorable, cozy restaurant for indoor seating attached to a larger, very pretty outdoor courtyard seating area covered with umbrellas to protect you from the weather.

So whether you want to order and grab a meal to take home to your family or sit down to eat, Crave Your Local Eatery is convenient for so many who work in the corporate centers surrounding it, are staying in the Marriott Residences, or are out shopping and running errands.

You can grab breakfast before work, head over on your lunch break, or even plan to pick up dinner. Or....relax there on the weekends for a meal. I already know what I am ordering the next time I go for breakfast: The Breakfast Burger! And I must try the Fried Peanut Butter & Jelly! I have never had one of those before :)

Crave Your Local Eatery also has on their menu Create-Your-Own-Pasta dishes, comfort foods like meatloaf and lasagna, and all kinds of specialty sandwiches, soups, salads, and bowls! (The Texas Bowl is mac & cheese topped with BBQ pulled pork!)

You can even BYOB!

At Crave Your Local Eatery the food is always fresh and made to order! (Nothing frozen here, folks!) And they can handle your catering, big or small. Just call  732-361-0669 for their catering business (The Stuft Shell.)

Fun Fact: In case you have come across other eateries with a similar name, this restaurant is NOT part of a chain or affiliated with any other place. That's why their name is not just 'Crave' but instead is 'Crave Your Local Eatery.' so you don't get them mixed up with any other places!
