Smoked turkey and cheese on wheat toast with a little bit of spicy mustard, to remind my tastebuds to feel something.

Honestly, even when I go out to eat, I usually find myself getting the same thing.

A shorty and a bag of chips from Wawa.

When I'm feeling really adventurous it'll be a slice of chicken bacon ranch pizza from Capones.

Recently though, I saw a post on the Toms River And Neighbors Community page that asked a pretty good question.

What Are Some Fun And Interesting Places To Eat Lunch Around Ocean County?

The post garnered a good bit of conversation.

There were recommendations for steak houses in Point Pleasant, seafood restaurants in Manahawkin, and great diners and sandwich shops in Silverton.

What exactly though qualify's a place as an interesting lunch stop?

I think it has something to do with the atmosphere of the restaurant, as well as a solid menu that has a lot of different fun choices you can't get in other places.

I also think it should be a locally owned restaurant. That goes a long way to make it interesting.

Locally owned restaurants just have so much more character and history.
