We have been going to Evelyn's for years so I thought it was high time to give them a very positive endorsement. Now that Spring has finally arrived, and the blasted Winter we just had is a memory, Evelyn's offers something that few other local restaurants can offer: an outdoor area in the back. With an ample bar that can... More

OK, I'm partial because I'm a Rutgers alum and have gone to Evelyn's since the '80's when I was attending RU... But 20+ years later, when I go back to New Brunswick I still often go to Evelyn's because it is flat out good. I know Lebanese food quite well - both my parents were born and raised in Beirut...

I've been to Evelyn's several times in the winter, but I finally got to try their outdoor seating this past month. It's enchanting back there, with a separate bar, sweeping trees (pear!), some big tables, and lovely little decorating touches. After a few hours in the garden it's easy to forget you're in the city. The food is consistent and... More

This place never disappoints. Consistently good food, great hummus, platters, shish, chicken, everything. I've tried many dishes on the menu, but I seem to stick to the same ones, each and every time. Atmosphere: depends on summer/winter months. The outside is fun, outdoor bar, seating. Not the most comfortable tables and chairs, but it's good enough. It summer it's great... More

The food is good and the patio,outside is a nice place for summer evenings. Definitely one of the nice restaurants on Easton Ave that does notmonly appeal to the college crowd.

Evelyns is okay. The food is okay. The service is okay. Okay is as far as it goes here. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. The portions are small. The taste was ordinary. I say try it fo yourself, but i won't be returning.

I ordered the vegetarian platter (I try to eat Halal and they don't offer halal meat options) and it was very good. I would recommend this for special occasions.

There are many places to eat in New Brunswick for a quick lunch or dinner. I work close to Evelyn's and go often. One of the best on Easton Ave.

I have been around New Brunswick for the past 6-7 years, and I have been visiting many bars and restaurants in this area. Evelyn’s was also a nice place that I used to like hanging with friends. Usually I was going there whenever the weather was decent enough to enjoy their backyard. However, things have changed! The place has been... More

I've eaten here twice and by far enjoyed the patio dining area more than indoors. Outstanding items are the hummus and the lentil appetizer, which I ate as my main course with pita. My friends got gyros which they seemed to enjoy a lot...no one left anything on the plate. I thought the flavors are delicious and subtle, though I... More
