We saw the Speakeatery on Man V Food and have been wanting to try it. We live over an hour away and don't get to Asbury very often. My son and I were not disappointed. He ordered the General a general tso flavored chicken breast...More

I came here years ago during one of the first restaurant tours that take place in Asbury every year and then I forgot about it. It seemed like it was a good thing though. Gone was the little grab and go feel to the place...More

Food was mediocre, not up to expectation. Service was painfully slow. Shrimp Po-boy was the special. Tasty, but short on shrimp. Bread was not very good. The hand grenade, their signature sandwich was tasty. French fries were good. Everything was reasonably priced.

Really glad I walked around a few blocks to find The Speakeatery. Very close to the NJ Transit station. I had the "Down-N-Out Burger," the clever response to my beloved Double Double at In-N-Out in the west. Funny description on the menu that I won't...More

I guess they think that filling a lunch box with a bed of lower quality potato chips is supposed to make up for cutting the sandwich size in half. The price is still the same to add insult to injury. I used to go on...More
