Vote for Your Favorite Places to Eat in the 2019 Jersey Choice Restaurant Poll!

Italian, Chinese, Mexican, Greek—what are your favorite restaurants in NJ? (SCROLL DOWN FOR VOTING FORM)

Love to eat? The 2019 Jersey Choice Restaurant Poll is your chance to help select the best restaurants in New Jersey. The winning restaurants will be revealed in the August 2019 issue of New Jersey Monthly. By submitting a ballot, you become eligible to win one of three prizes in our random drawing.


Midnight, February 28. One vote per email address please. Limit one submission per household or location. Restaurants are welcome to distribute links to this ballot, but restaurants assisting in the submission of ballots will be disqualified. Serial votes from the same IP address will be disqualified.


Use the drop-down menu for each of the 45 categories to find the name of your favorite restaurant in that category.


If you don’t see the name of your favorite restaurant in any category, scroll to the bottom of the drop-down menu and click “Other.” This will open a set of new boxes where you can type in the restaurant name and town.


Local chains appear as a single entry on each drop-down menu; it is not necessary to specify the location. National chains are ineligible, except in the chain category.


Three winning entries will be chosen in a random drawing. The grand prize is dinner for two at the restaurant named Best of the Best in your region. Second prize:  A cheesecake courtesy of Anthony’s Cheesecake Café (shipped within New Jersey).  Third prize: A one-year subscription to New Jersey Monthly magazine. New Jersey Monthly will contact the winners following the poll deadline of February 28; winners’ names will be published in the August 2019 issue of New Jersey Monthly. 


You must be 21 or over to be eligible for the drawing. It is not necessary to vote in every category, but you must vote in at least 10 categories to be eligible for the drawing. See complete contest rules on the ballot page.

Restaurants assisting in the submission of online ballots will be disqualified.
