Fast Food Tour of Aberdeen

Step away from your diets and careful gnoshing for a moment. Come join me if you will on a local quest for fast food from a national chain. If you urgently need a fast food fix, Route 34 is the best place to be in Aberdeen. Between Lloyd Road and Broad Street you will have fast access to Saladworks, McDonald's, KFC, Taco Bell, Burger King, as well as 7-Eleven, Dunkin' Donuts, and Starbucks. Route 35 in Cliffwood has its own McDonald's as well as a Wendy's. There's a Pizza Hut and 7 Eleven at Morristown Road near the Garden State Parkway Exit 120.

Speaking of the GSP Exit 120 side of town, the Subway shop near CVS has been closed for some months due to a "family emergency" of some sort. I wish they'd return. For now, you'd have to head out of town, either to Hazlet on Rte 35 or maybe Browntown Shopping Center on Rte 516, to find a Subway. I've been getting my sandwiches at the Super Wawa at the corner of Route 35 and Cliffwood Avenue. They have a computer that lets you direct the staff on how to dress your sub just the way you like it, then you can print out a receipt, pay for the sub and pick it up. DD makes pretty good oven-toasted sandwiches in NYC; I've not tried them around here.

If you're looking for Quiznos, forget it. I love Quiznos subs, but they tend to be rather expensive. I get my fix in the city now and then. Today, in fact. I think you'd have to travel way out to Middletown past Sears on Rte 35 to find the Q around here. The one in Union Beach closed a while ago.

I now return you to your appropriate diet, which hopefully was already in progress.
