Cheap Eateries in New Jersey

New Jersey has many "Cheap Eateries" or inexpensive restaurants that stand out as having good value.

A cheap eatery is defined as a casual restaurant that offers good value food and fast service without all the trimmings of expensive decor, a view, gourmet food, or wait staff that panders, or very few of the qualities normally found in a fine dining restaurant.



Many of these inexpensive restaurants are family restaurants that welcome kids, and include diners, fast food chains, and local family run eateries.
