Their French fries are really, really good. Location is great! Prices are a little high but worth it. Hopefully they don't raise them. Overall a great spot to stop for comfort food.

We started going to Hot Rod's about a year ago. It's now our go to place when we have out of town visitors. It has an extensive, rotating beer and cider menu. The menu is southern with a twist. The honey fried chicken is crispy with a slightly sweet finish. The brisket is melt in your mouth tender. The meatloaf... More

Hot Rod's is a very beautiful restaurant with great scenery. It's located in a scenic part of Wharton, NJ. The food is average for BBQ, nothing to brag about. Not what people said it was. The prices are higher then I imagined they'd be. No hamburger is worth $16... I do not consider this a family oriented restaurant. I would... More

Our friend brought us here as it's her fav BBQ place. We were greeted by enthusiatic servers who sat us near the window. Comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. It was a good dinner place to catch up with friends. Food was yummy and I loved my order of BBQ ribs. Meat so tender and falling off the bones. Hubby's pulled pork... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat/drink in NJ! We eat here about once a month. The craft beer selection is great! The beef brisket is my favorite!

Excellent wings. Brisket tastey but dry. Needed BBQ sauce which was very good. Ribs excellent. Large selection of craft beers but at $9 a pop they could have filled the glass.

Stopped for late dinner recently. Great choice of BBQ meats and excellent taste. Sides are served in separate dishes. Staff was attentive and polite. The best BBQ I've been to in New Jersey. Far better food (no comparison) to the chains. I will go ahead. Reasonable prices.

Looking for a quick bite Sunday evening and thought we'd give it a try. Shared a couple of apps (try the burnt ends!). Very good (but a little on the pricey side). Brisket sandwiches were tasty. Burnt ends pizza was a big hit. Very chill setting; live music most nights. Cool bar with big screen TV's. When we get that... More

We stopped by Hot Rod's for lunch and ordered a half rack of the Signature Smoked Ribs from the pit. We loved the Smokey flavor of the ribs and the prize winning BBQ sauce. The coleslaw and cornbread were really great. I can add another outstanding BBQ Joint to my bucket list of BBQ places I’ve tried.
Thank you for the great compliment. We are so happy that you like us. Our ribs are definitely a fan favorite. We truly appreciate you putting us on your "Bucket List!" More
