Sounds like a possible DO? Anyone want to make their house available so we can pickup food and then go watch some playoff football?  ;D ;D

I assume they are referring to Camp Simcha at Darchei.

So I went at 5:30 for an early dinner and was extremely disappointed. Almost everything was sold out. I mean c'mon! They officially close at 9 and 5:30 is a reasonable time to come for dinner! Very unprofessional IMO. All they had left was pulled brisket, pulled chicken, and turkey legs.

Don't get me wrong, the brisket and chicken were fantastic. But since they were basically scraping the pan, the brisket had loads of connective tissue included. Also, the tacos were from the same meat laid on top of raw tortilla shells. Cole slaw was just raw cabbage with barely any dressing, 'lamb bacon' baked beans were awful with not a hint of any actual meat inside, and beats tasted like cigarette smoke.

I really wanted to try the lamb belly bacon and short ribs. Maybe next time

Precisely the issue. They come to town like once a year. There is only so much he can bring and prepare. Since 12 the lines were nuts and considering that it was a playoff Sunday I am not surprised at all.

It is called Grill560. The owner of Burgers and Pizzale closed Noodles and made it into a Falafel and Schwarma place.

service is sooooo slow.  very oily food.  not worth it...
I was so sad it wasnt good.  5-towns needs a good falafel place.

I tired the chicken shwarma and the falafal.  both were bad.
