  • AboutNewJerseyCom

    The category for Don Pepe's is wrong - it is not an Italian restaurant - it's Portuguese. The restaurant is great and a tradition whenever I go to a Devils game or to the NJ Performing Arts Center.

    It's not a Portugese restaurant, it's a Spanish restaurant.

  • What's Good Here

    The lobsters here come in enormous sizes from a "small" 2 lbs all the way to around 5 lbs. Go for the 3 lbs.
