Joey Tomatoes Pizza: A Boardwalk Hit For All Ages

Joey Tomatoes Pizza in Pt. Pleasant

By Rohan:

There are countless aspects of Point Pleasant, New Jersey that make us to want to come back every year. Maybe it’s the thrilling boardwalk rides or the fun but fierce games of mini golf. Wait, scratch that–it’s enjoying time with family and friends on the Jersey shore, while chomping on delicious thin crust pizza at Joey Tomatoes.

Joey Tomatoes is located in a charming yellow building and is the mix between a sports bar and your neighborhood pizzeria. With pies made to order or slices ready to hit the beach, Joey’s gives you plenty of ways to enjoy their always fresh pies. One of the main reasons why we return to Joey’s every time we’re at the shore is simply their exceptional service. You are welcomed with a smile and served by some of the nicest people on the boardwalk. The passion the cooks have for their pizza is endearing and it shows in how delicious each pie tastes when it comes out of the oven straight to your table. Whether you enjoy tons of toppings or prefer just cheese and basil, Joey Tomatoes knows how to bring New York-style pizza to one of New Jersey’s favorite beaches.

In the real estate world, location is everything, and Joey Tomatoes is perfectly situated on the Boardwalk adjacent to video arcades and fun houses. If you want to work up an appetite, challenge your family and friends to a pirate-themed mini golf course located ON TOP of the restaurant. This little perk makes Joey’s even more charming and keeps the kids entertained while you wait for your pizza to arrive.

The only real downside we see in Joey Tomatoes is that it is expensive. A pie will cost you 21 dollars, assuming you want plain cheese. However, we manage to work our way around it because when it comes to authentic New York pizza with a view of the Atlantic Ocean, Joey’s really can’t be beat.

The Fractured Prune- A Delicious Breakfast Treat

Yummy creations at the Fractured Prune

By Rohan: 

If you find yourself in Ocean City, Maryland as we prepare to embrace for chilly fall weather here on the East Coast, make sure to check out the Fractured Prune. Despite the rather unusual name for a dessert place, this small pastry shop with several locations along the Ocean City Boardwalk is doing donuts a little differently. While your traditional Dunkin Donuts offers pre-made flavors, The Fractured Prune takes the fried delicacy to a whole new level by allowing you to completely customize your donut-eating experience.

What does this mean? You start out with a plain, old-fashioned donut. From there, you get to choose a flavor of frosting. The Fractured Prune offers everything from the typical vanilla and chocolate to the obscure frosting top such as blueberry and maple syrup. Once your donuts are nice and sticky, its time to select toppings. Here, you can go the more traditional route and stick with sprinkles and nuts, or try adding graham cracker crumbs to make a donut taste like Grandma’s apple pie.

In addition to serving delicious handmade donuts fresh from the fryers, the Fractured Prune offers a lively and colorful dining experience. From serving their steaming hot donuts on frisbees to use later at the beach to 50’s memorabilia plastered all over the walls, this is an Ocean City attraction that you don’t want to miss.

If you are taking kids to the area or just want to splurge on a sugary snack for yourself, look no further than the Fractured Prune! For more information about their Ocean City locations, check out out http://www.fracturedprune.com/menu_oc.php
