We may never get a consensus on it being pork roll or Taylor ham (it’s Taylor ham, by the way). But what we can all agree on is that Frank’s Deli is among the best places to get it in New Jersey, which actually means any other place on earth. Part deli and part diner, Frank’s has been an Asbury Park staple since before The Boss and his E-Street Band were rocking the Stone Pony on the other side of town. Go for breakfast and get their thick-cut pork roll with egg and cheese on a housemade roll. While you’re at it, grab a deli sandwich for lunch and take it to the beach. You might not think you’re hungry after all that pork roll, but you’ll thank us later.
