When it comes to boardwalk food, we are very lucky here at the Jersey Shore. In fact, we're pretty much spoiled. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that one of our boardwalks is named among the best in the entire country.

Last summer, and last just about anything, was a total anomaly. So we took it back a few years to find out which boardwalks throughout the country had the best food, and we found the USA Today 2013 rankings (one of the the most recent national results we could find)  But we locals know in the few years since, the Seaside Heights Boardwalk food has probably gotten even better.

We were a little disappointed when we made our way through the top 5 and didn't see any Jersey Shore representation (well at least not our Jersey Shore Atlantic City was #2 and Ocean City was #3).

So when did we see one of our boardwalks? We were right there at #7, nestled between Santa Cruz, California and Carolina Beach, North Carolina. There it was. Seaside Heights. Now that's what we're talking about.

It doesn't matter if you're chomping down some pizza, or a cheesesteak or anything in between, if you're eating on the Seaside Heights Boardwalk, you are eating some elite boardwalk food.

We know that the humans behind this great food have been through some very tough times, just like the rest of us. But now with the promise of a wonderful Summer 2021 at the Jersey Shore, let's make sure we show the love for these great businesses.

They've been there for us, let's let them know how much we appreciate them. Shop local, buy local!
