We may never get a consensus on the correct usage of pork roll vs. Taylor ham (it’s Taylor ham for us, but it’s certainly not called that at Frank’s). But what we can all agree on is that Frank’s is among the best places to get this iconic deli meat sandwich in New Jersey, which actually means any other place on earth. 

Part-deli, part-diner, Frank’s has been an Asbury Park staple since before the state of New Jersey gave it an official designation as part of its Anthony Bourdain Food Trail. Go for breakfast and get that thick-cut Taylor ham with egg and cheese on a housemade roll or rye bread (our preference). While you’re at it, try one of their donuts and pastries (also housemade), too. And if you’re headed to the beach, grab a deli sandwich for lunch—we’re partial to the triple deckers on rye. You’re probably not hungry after all that breakfast, but you’ll thank us later.
