Comin' back. Just got off the phone raving to my friend about this place. Burger with pulled pork and "pig candy" to die for. Pork light but less vinegary than North Carolina style, less cloyingly sweet than Kansas City...just right...with amazing herbal notes (and is that Indian spice in the cole slaw" Yum!). Yeah, pig candy: thick sliced, smoked in... More

Chop shop is housed inside of the Hershey Motel. The service is outstanding, every wait staff we met was awesome! The manager is great, I am sorry I did not get her name. Offers a great variety of dishes. You won't be disappointed.

My family and I were at the Chop Shop on 7/20. When we came in, there was a table of 6 people and a table of 7 or 8 people. 1 table had their appetizers and 1 had their food. We ordered our drinks then waited. After 10 minutes the waitress told us they are all out of Corona. Okay,... More

The Chop Shop aka the coffee shop at the popular Hershey Motel was a welcome bastion of BBQ high and low cuisine in a seaside town awash with pizza slices and cheesesteak. Menu items like Kung Pao Smoked Ribs combined smoky barbecued pork ribs with hoisin sauce and fresh scallions, a brilliant combo! Brisket Biscuits had fine crumbly biscuits topped... More

This place was a breathe of fresh air in Seaside Heights. While visiting I was kind of surprised about the poor quality of almost everything in the town but this little place was great. The food was pretty upscale and really well priced.

This is a small restaurant attached to a motel but it looked interesting. Inside, the staff was friendly and informative. We needed gluten free options and they had several. My husband had the short ribs and I had shrimp with grits. His was gluten free delish! My grits and shrimp were not GF but was amazing. Both dishes were well... More

We are here twice on our short visit to seaside. Once for dinner and once for breakfast. Both meals were GREAT. All the BBQ is made and smoked in house and it is DELICIOUS. Ask about the "pig candy" holy moley that stuff should be illegal. Breakfast was also very good. Between the three of us we pretty much samples... More

The Chop Shop is great. The food is delicious and is not frozen. The cocktails come in plastic cups which is disappointing, but are made well. Service is very nice and accommodating. When you come here, you won't regret it.

All we ate was breakfast for 2 days inside. Nice service and the breakfast was very good for what we ordered. Eggs, bacon, corn beef hash,coffee, toast and potatoes. Can comment on the other food. However, always a friendly smile and good quick service. Would definitely eat here again
