Restaurant Review

Cubby's BBQ is a Hackensack eatery with a family-friendly, cafeteria-like atmosphere and a menu that covers the full range of BBQ food.

It is one of the best BBQ's in Northern NJ

The service is fast, the portions are huge, and the price is reasonable. No wait staff, just pick up your order at the counter.

Cubby's' signature serving is the very tasty and tender, center-cut, pulled pork sandwich The sauce is a little on the sweet side but it goes well with pork.

They serve up very good, ribs, burgers, chicken, buffalo wings buckets, roast beef, and even fish, steak and hot dogs.

On weekends Cubby's BBQ gets crowded with a line out the door. Plan on getting there early.

If you have a large group, they can arrange for parties up to 500.

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide objective restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
