Description: Pizza was, and will always be, our first love. In fact, it was the reason we started The Spot PBQ. Our mission is simple: create crispy, delicious, thin crust pizza with the freshest ingredients around. Fresh garlic tomato sauce made right here in our kitchen and a house blend of mozzarella cheeses are spun together to create a mix of traditional pizzas and exciting pies with innovative flare. Tradition meets innovation again in our house smoked barbecue – true to Texas style, our baby back ribs, pork and chicken are dry rubbed then smoked low & slow. The PBQ BBQ doesn’t stop there, with barbecue inspiration throughout our menu in the form of street tacos, sandwiches, pizza and more. There’s no better partner to good food than a cold, refreshing beer, and here at The Spot PBQ craft beer is our specialty. With a notable focus on supporting local businesses, our tap list regularly features at least five New Jersey breweries like Kane, Carton, Flying Fish, Beach Haus, and Cape May Brewing. And if that still isn’t enough, you can check our bottled beer list for other options. We aim to please, and you’re sure to find something you’ll love on our menu. We are much more than just pizza and barbecue – with seasonal specials, shareable starters, and food truck inspired cuisine, there’s something for everyone at The Spot!

“Save your money”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

The first time I ate here, right after they first opened, we were disappointed with the food (burgers). They were overcooked and actually the waitress got my order wrong and I had to wait for the correct item to be prepared. Of course, they apologized, and we chalked it up to being a new place and "growing pains". We decided to give it another try this past weekend, and we should have saved our money and gone elsewhere. First we had blackened tuna bites, ordered medium rare - they were overcooked and tastless. I ordered a buffalo chicken salad, which tasted like the chicken was cooked yesterday or last week - not fresh at all. My husband was disappointed with his 2nd attempt at a burger, again overcooked and seemed like right out of the freezer and my step daughter ordered sesame shrimp which didn't even fill her up (she's not a big eater). I doubt they'll last too long. I've read the other reviews and it seems like the TV's and drinks are the best part of THE SPOT. Thumbs down :-(

“Great Place to Eat & Hang”
Reviewed April 26, 2012 via mobile

I go here somewhat regularly. The food is always great and the wait staff is always very friendly and courteous. The bar tender remembers our drinks and always has them coming as we are sitting down. Great specials all the time. The Bang Bang Shrimp is fantastic! Great place to watch sports too. They have HD TVs everywhere including each individual booth in the bar area. Great fun, great food.
