Some restaurants are so good you go out of your way to get to them. Restaurants (like Cafe 2825 and Phily Sport Bar) we wish had a second location!

Never say never, right?

Is there a local restaurant you wish had a second location? Let us know in the comment box below!

    Chicken or the Egg

    Forget about wondering which came first. This Beach Haven favorite always has us foaming at the mouth for everything from Fried Steak & Eggs, to milkshakes, and Peanutbuttercup Pancakes.

    Phily Diner & Sport Bar

    Three words. Cheese Steak Nachos. Ok, two more words. White Pizza. This is where Runnemede locals get their grub on for one of South Jersey's best Happy Hours.

    Shea's Cafe & Bakery

    We're being greedy here, because Shea's just moved to an expanded location, virtually tripling it's table count. But still. We crave the Smoked Salmon Egg's Benedict (and owner Lou's friendly smile) on the regular.

    Royale Crown Homemade Ice Cream & Grill

    Hammonton residents are so lucky to call this their home for homemade and seasonal ice cream! Try Jersey Blueberry or Jersey Peach and you'll be hooked. Or branch out for some hand-dipped Italian Pizzelle hard serve on a cone. A side of their crispy fries never hurt anyone either. We wish there were a Royale Crown in every town.

    Tipsy Taco

    This Margate favorite hasn't been around for long but has quickly amassed a loyal following for it's authentic Mexican food and inventive margaritas.

    White House Subs Shop

    This cult classic (that even celebrities can't resist when they come to Atlantic City) used to have a second location until the closing of Trump Taj Mahal.

    The Grilled Cheese & Crab Cake Co.

    Guy Fieri doesn't just show up in Somers Point for nothing! But when you do grilled cheese this well it warrants a mention on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives.

    Annata Wine Bar

    It's charm and Old World feel (not to mention the unrivaled wine selection) makes us long for more Annata locations. But it's so worth the drive to Hammonton for their tapas style culinary creations (Hi, eggplant tower!) and festive cocktails, like The Nutty Snowman.

    Cardinal Bistro

    Rustic but contemporary American cuisine has made this Ventnor restaurant a must since opening in 2016. And they serve brunch. Bonus!

    The Cracked Egg

    Locals love this Galloway stop for doing the classics and doing them well. Eggs over, hash browns, and good coffee. You can't go wrong.

    Sugar Hill Subs

    Known for the fattest subs in South Jersey, this Mays Landing favorite also serves amazing sub trays for parties and get-togethers.

    Carluccio's Coal Fired Pizza

    Also featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives, there aren't many pizza joints with the kind of options offered by Carluccio's. It's tiny but mighty keeping us crossing our fingers we'll see another pop up in the future.

    Cafe 2825

    Atlantic City's home for fresh, seasonal, regional Italian cuisine crafted by a guy named 'Joe', menus at Cafe 2825 change on a regular basis depending on what local ingredients are in season. We defy you to leave without devouring the Whole Stuffed Artichoke.
