“BEST KEPT SECRET IN HAMPTON!!!!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

BEST KEPT SECRET IN HAMPTON!!!! Sherlock Holmes would help find this EXCELLENT New Jersey rustic restaurant. See their website for directions .http://www.hamptonjunction.com/ Mainly Italian dinners which change weekly but also serving breakfast and lunch, My son has been there 10 times or so and has always had outstanding food. Fresh pasta, sauces, breads, and their lime basil salad dressing. Don't miss any of them. Add their deserts!!
As an addendum Linda's daughter (the owner) will graduate from the Air Force Academy in 2013 and then start USAF flight training!!!

“Don't Judge a Book by it's Cover”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

You could easily drive right by this restauraunt and that would be a mistake. It doesn't look like much but the homemade pasta is absolutely delicious! Actually, all the entrees we had were delicious. And so was the homemade bread, bread pudding and (according to the others I was with) the basil lime salad dressing. If you are in the area it is worth finding this little sllice of homecooking hidden in Hampton, NJ.

“Great food!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Friends guided us to Hampton Junction and what a great choice. It is a small out of the way place that specializes in "homemade" pastas, bread, salad dressings and desserts. Entrees are fabulous but the specialty dressings and desserts set this place apart. Try the basil lime salad dressing, bread pudding and cutie desserts (peanut butter and key lime). Friendly service in a very casual setting--don't be fooled by the appearance--this is a great restaurant.

“Loved Watching Pasta Being Made”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Though I can't eat the fresh homemade pasta, I did enjoy watching it being made. Everyone that had the pasta was enjoying every last noodle! There was a delicious butternut squash soup that was GF and it was really delicious. Not a lot of choices for us GF people but the friends I was with raved over their meals. Nice to see a local, family feeling type place surviving. They were very busy (Saturday evening) and enjoying their customers! As everyone says, reservations are a must on the weekends ~

“Best kept secret, fabulous fresh to order food!!”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Breakfast lunch or dinner, you can't miss. Homemade pasta made while you watch. The basil-lime salad dressing just can't be beat. Funny little place - gourmet food in a casual deli/store. Off the beaten path & set back from the street, you could miss it & you definitely don't want to. Make reservations, especially on the weekends or you won't get in.
