amada, and azure were my favorites. Luke Palladino's take out place was good. The taco truck was good, but further down the line. I am not into steak, but those who are raved about the steak place, whatever that one was called.

I really liked Azure also. The Mussel Bar was also great.

I liked village whiskey too even if prices were too high even for a casino. Great place to get a drink with friends visiting from out of town.

Yes, can still go enjoy in Philly. But don't know if it is as much of a standout with so many presumably good options abound (don't know Philly well).

The Philly one has the best restaurant burger I've had in my entire life.

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

Do Atlantic City outlets offer a good value compared to say King of Prussia or some other random Philly malls? Looking to buy a couple of jeans on this week's trip. And also, anything I should know about where to pick up a coupon book or something like that for the outlets?

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

Does anyone know if there are good family restaurants on brigantine ?

I know most of the a.c. Restaurants, but am thinking of renting a house in brigantine this summer for a week with family.

First off, if you plan on driving to the AC outlets by car, it's going to cost you $12 to park if you use their valet service, which, is directly in the heart of all the shops you're going to be interested in(Polo, Nautica, Bass, Pac Sun, American Eagle, Banana Republic, The Gap). But, they also have a parking garage that costs $3 and although it's not as close to these stores as the valet is, it's definitely still very duable, and, this area will be right in the heart of all the sneaker outlets. *Note*: there's a small, U-shaped cluster of parking spots directly outside of Starbucks, but, there's only about ~6 or 7 available spots; I always park there when I go. Granted, sometimes I'm waiting a few minutes for a spot to open, but I just hate paying for parking, and, it's located directly across the street from the valet, so, the location is definitely primo.

I would say that the outlets are probably cheaper than King Of Prussia only because they're all discounted stores to begin with. However, the selection will probably pale in comparison, I'm sure.

Regarding coupons: I don't know if it's still there but I do remember there being a store just for what you're looking for on the same block as Applebee's on the adjacent street right behind the H&M store.

I just park in the McDonald's parking lot and walk around the outlets. Never had a problem.

If you're looking for family restaurants, I would probably recommend:

Mad Dog Morgan's (breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Really good breakfast, great sandwiches and stuff, wide variety to chose from, very inexpensive).

Andre's Italian: the food is pretty good(not the best I ever had) but definitely family friendly with a vast menu.

Adversa's Bakery: just because. Great bread! Nice desserts.

There's a few seafood places that are quite nice, too, but they're not exactly family-type places if you ask me.

If you ever want a really good meatball sub or a dynamite pork sandwich, Ernest&Sons butcher in Brigantine is bangin! And they're a damn good butcher shop, as well.

That's a huge tow-away zone! I know the guy who operates a towing service company and he says that's one of his best locations! Be careful.

you running super good , I have heard multiple stories of quick towing. I guess if you buy something minimal you can get away with it for a little. I usually park on Arctic by the puma outlet or park at the ceaser Bally lot since platinum plus gets free parking.

I arrived at Caesars yesterday (Friday) at 1pm and was shocked to see that they were charging $20 for parking!

Thanks for the tip, but how do they know you're not in mcdonald's? Who is checking?

I've probably done this 20 times now.

The owner might notice 8 cars in the lot even though there are only 4 people inside. The tow operator who's hired to monitor the lot might check with the people inside (they do do that). Some one might see you get out of your car and walk away. I don't know specifically about the sign in that lot but tow signs often say something to the effect that you're not allowed to park there before or after patronizing the business, so you can't get away with just buying a small drink, then leaving your car there all day. The fact that you've gotten away with it 20 times means a) you've been lucky and b) obviously, they don't catch everyone. But, considering getting your car back after it's been towed might cost you a lot of money and time, you have to consider how much of a risk you're willing to take to save a few bucks.

You raise decent points, but during the time the outlets are open, this Mcdonald's is always completely jam packed, with a fairly full parking lot. It just seems fairly impossible to enforce with the current state of affairs. It's not like a normal mcdonald's where it is sometimes fairly empty. I think a lot of bums buy a coffee and just sit all day, making your first point even more difficult.

Keep doing what you're doing then! Maybe you'll never get towed.

this is usually a particular tow truck drivers only job for a shift. it wouldn't take much for him to note which cars have been there more than an hour.
