There are a lot of great foods in New Jersey and a lot of great places to eat them, but one publication has narrowed down New Jersey's favorite food and the best places to eat it. .

Let's start with the Garden State's favorite food. This is going to be debatable no matter what food you choose. You can't go wrong with pizza of course, and that's the first thing that came to my mind.

And then there is our amazing fresh seafood and all the great places to eat that. The list goes on and on, but gobankingrates.com chose the pork roll sandwich as New Jersey's favorite food. Fair enough.

So where should you get one?There are places up and down the Jersey Shore and all throughout Monmouth & Ocean Counties. Can you actually name one them the best in our area?

Thrillist.com did. According to them, one of the best pork roll sandwich in the Garden State is the Allenwood General Store! Thrillist says that the sandwich lives up to the General Store's proclamation of "world’s best pork roll sandwich".

Another local spot named among the best is Hoagitos, located just feet from our New Jersey Natural Gas studio on the boardwalk in Asbury Park (and also in Belmar). Thrillist raves about Hoagito's "chewy, first-rate rolls".

So if it's a great breakfast sandwich you're after, I guess we're pretty lucky to be here at the Jersey Shore!
