I don't find great food, great food finds me!

I'll explain... One of my best friends has an apartment in Belmar and after a quick drink at his place, we found ourselves walking in the direction of some of our favorite local spots. Sometimes we go to 10th Ave Burrito, Beach Haus Brewery, or Anchor Tavern, it pretty much depends on the vibe. However, as we were walking through the Belmar Mall parking lot, we had the sudden urge to try Simply Southern for the first time. Not only did we want to try something different, but we have heard nothing but fantastic reviews about the restaurant. So we gave it a shot and I am very happy we did! We both agreed that Simply Southern can be added to the list of our favorites!

I love eating baby back ribs but sometimes when you order them at places you've never eaten at, you never know what you are going to get. I said the hell with it and I decided to try the ribs. I am happy to report that they are the best-tasting baby ribs in Monmouth County. Mouth-watering, finger-licking, lip-smacking - these are ribs you have to try! (KEEP SCROLLING FOR MORE).

I lived in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a few years and this Belmar restaurant GETS IT! You can tell Rasheed & Rita take pride in cooking each meal. True southern food right here at the Jersey Shore.
