A word from Hot Rods BBQ
Hot Rods BBQ is a celebration of the open road, classic custom cars, All-American comfort food and fun all rolled into one.

Today, it seems like every part of the country claims to have its own special twist on BBQ but, Anthony Sibona, Hot Rods’ owner and Head Chef, has combined the best of BBQ from around the country to create dishes that are truly a taste of America. And because Anthony is a Jersey guy, he calls his BBQ, “Yankee BBQ” a name that has come to mean the best of the best.

Hot Rods is famous for delicious slow smoked pulled pork and BBQ babyback ribs. Both are prepared and smoked to Hot Rods' strict specifications, using only top quality meats. The result is the most tender, tasty BBQ pulled pork and ribs you’ll ever eat.

A combination of flavorful rubs, homemade sauces, and an open flame creates the perfect BBQ – tender, meaty and exploding with great smoky taste! So sit back and enjoy a tasty trip!

Diner Reviews
  • "Great Bbq and they have great specials. Really enjoyed the sliders combo which gives you a taste of everything - love the french fries and peanut butter pie!!!"

  • "Amazing beer list, and selected craft beers are only $/bottle on Friday nights! Appetizer wings were big and flavorful. Entrees were OK. I think we caught them on an 'off' night - brisket was a bit tough and dry (and not very hot), and the pulled pork was a bit dry. Not the best BBQ place I've been to, but certainly not the worst either. Desserts were great. Service was really friendly and helpful."

  • "This restaurant provided hands down the best service that I've ever had in NJ and easily the best BBQ as well. I can't recommend Hot Rod's enough."

  • "If you like BBQ then you have to go here. The Ribs are fantastic, They have pulled pork chicken brisket a little of everything and when they have specials come early they sell out quick. Try the BBQ clams if they have them or the smoked turkey sandwiches. they also have a really good beer list. On Friday they have $4 craft beer night. See the website for more. Its worth the trip."

  • "No better BBQ around! Love coming to Hot Rods and always looking forward to my next visit. I had the ribs this time and they were spectacular! Loved the Bourbon BBQ sauce. Don't miss the wings when you come. They also have a great craft beer list and specials on beer. Get the bucket and share with your friends!"
