We love many things in New Jersey, but we believe our top passion is trying as many great Garden State restaurants as we can.

New Jersey has a pretty great food scene that we are very lucky to have.

I find myself being a creature of habit and revisiting my reliable favorites, but recently I decided to make it my mission to get out of my comfort zone and test out something new.

If you're like me and are on a quest to discover that amazing restaurant that you may have never heard of, we think we can help.

We stumbled upon a list of the most underrated restaurants in each state and one of those undiscovered/underrated restaurants is right here in the Garden State.

Of course, this restaurant is far from undiscovered by its loyal patrons, but it has been named the most underrated restaurant in the state by Spoon University.

You'll love this restaurant's story as much as you'll love its food.

 "If I'm an advocate for anything, it's to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food. It's a plus for everybody." - Anthony Bourdain
