    I've been here three times and I have to admit the place kind of disgusts and intrigues me at the same time. Don't get me wrong, the food is very good, but the portions, which have become famous, are ridiculously big. You'll walk in to this appropriately huge restaurant and immediately notice the cakes in the fridges to your left. They are about 20 inches tall!! Also, when you look around, you're sure to notice some people in here that look like they eat here every day.

    Favorite Dish: There is a free pickle and bread bar that you can go to and add to your plate before your sandwich comes. The deli sandwiches come in 13 or 26 ounce sizes and the 13 ounce is definitely more than enough for two people. I had the pastrami sandwich twice and it's great. I also had an ham, egg and cheese sandwich that was good.

    If you're looking for some basic diner food (think club sandwiches, burgers, waffles, eggs . . .), then the Menlo Park Diner isnt' a bad option. It's located in exactly what you'd expect from a diner, a long, retro looking place with booths and tables and a cashier up front.

    Favorite Dish: I had an omelette, which was decent if not great.

    Ashoka is a good north Indian restaurant located just off of Oak Tree Road in a little strip mall on Marconi Avenue. The food here is excellent and not too expensive and the service is attentive. We were here for dinner, but at lunch they have a buffet.

    Favorite Dish: We ordered a number of dishes here to allow and shared plates and everything was good. Try Chicken Tikka if you're not used to Indian food. If you are, get a little more daring and try something new.

    . . . just head downstairs to the hotel bar! My buddies Jared and Kevin and I spent a few nights hanging out at the hotel bar (I think it's called Whispers??). There's nothing like an elevator ride commute to your bed after a few drinks at the bar.

    There's not much to do in the way of nightlife in Edison. New Brunswick, New Jersey is only about 15 minutes away, so if you're into the college town scene (Rutgers University) you could head down to the bars there. Otherwise, New York City is just a 40 minute train ride away!

    Dress Code: We ended up at the TGI Fridays bar one night and surprisingly had a good time chatting it up with some locals.
