There used to be a place in Lawnside, I think it was called Snow Hill, but I believe its been gone for some time now.
See post #2.

It's probably Snow Hill that I was thinking of. That's the one that was destroyed by fire.

I mentioned Kingfish in post #2. Chief smoker and probably the owner is a really nice guy, too.

Carolina Blue has a Pitman address. Their menu includes bbq. It's not a bbq joint. They have a bar and sometimes they have a band.

I'm not sure, but I may have had a drink or two there.

A woman I know who used to be the marketing chief for a couple of hotshot Philly Realtors relocated from South Philly to Pitman three years ago. She was looking for a bigger house with a yard and found one there. I've been out to visit on at least three separate occasions, and on one of them, she took my boyfriend and I to this restaurant on (I think) the west edge of the borough.

Pitman reminds me of any of a number of smallish towns one finds in the Heartland with a freeway running just outside it. (In Pitman's case, NJ 55.) They may not be "exciting," but they are very pleasant places to live.

Both she and I had a good laugh over the borough seal, which we both thought seemed a little too Kinder-Küche-Kirche for our more off-center tastes.

Their biggest mistake probably was putting it in Chesilhurst though. Talk about a place feeling depressing and in the middle of nowhere.
They closed up because the owner passed away and they just couldn't do it anymore. He was young, too.

I second that. She's the daughter of the original Kingfish owner, which was located just east of 54 on 40.
We go down 206 quite a bit, either to eat at Shamong Diner, go to Valenzano, or just to go to the White Horse Pike to get to Atlantic City. She's not always open, but we've eaten there, and while it was a wait, the food was really, really good! It's set up very old-school outside.

Carolina Blue (which is on Lambs Road - I love that name - Lambs Road) used to be much more BBQ-oriented. We prefer to sit at the bar and drink and then eat. I do not like the dining room. In the summer the band was terribly loud on Sundays every time the door was opened to that area.

So how does Uncle Pig's rate among these? Near the Save A Lot in Paulsboro. Ate there once and thought it was delicious. I'm a sucker for BBQ pulled pork.

People don't go to Palulsboro unless they have to.

The neighborhood is on the dumpy side but it isn’t downtown Camden. I inventory that Save A Lot twice a year. The Uncle Pig’s is really in Gibbstown supposedly.
