El Meson: Great Mexican Food
Got to be the largest menu of any Mexican restaurant that I have ever gone to! Along with your choice of beef, chicken or pork in many entrees, you can choose lamb as well. Kind of unusual I think. My wife chose one of the appetizers and the server offered to make it into a...
Federicis: The ORIGINAL Federicis
A mainstay on Freehold's Main Street for 50+ years, I love the feel of Federicis - this is no "fern bar", just an old school Italian restaurant with some of the best pizza in the world. Baked in brick ovens, it has a thin, crisp crust, and just the right amount of FRESH...

Yes, it's what's known most about Freehold, and yes, it's a famous race track.While I may not be the biggest racing fan myself, even avid racing fans will most likely feel this racetrack crowded, small, cramped, and old. Want good horse racing? Go to the Meadowlands, plain...
