Pizza was, and will always be, our first love. In fact, it was the reason we started The Spot PBQ. Our mission is simple: create crispy, delicious, thin crust pizza with the freshest ingredients around. Fresh garlic tomato sauce made right here in our kitchen and a house blend of mozzarella cheeses are spun together to create a mix of traditional pizzas and exciting pies with innovative flare.

Tradition meets innovation again in our house smoked barbecue – true to Texas style, our baby back ribs, pork and chicken are dry rubbed then smoked low & slow. The PBQ BBQ doesn’t stop there, with barbecue inspiration throughout our menu in the form of street tacos, sandwiches, pizza and more.

There’s no better partner to good food than a cold, refreshing beer, and here at The Spot PBQ craft beer is our specialty. With a notable focus on supporting local businesses, our tap list regularly features at least five New Jersey breweries like Kane, Carton, Flying Fish, Beach Haus, and Cape May Brewing. And if that still isn’t enough, you can check our bottled beer list for other options.

We aim to please, and you’re sure to find something you’ll love on our menu. We are much more than just pizza and barbecue – with seasonal specials, shareable starters, and food truck inspired cuisine, there’s something for everyone at The Spot!
