When I saw the NJ.com article touting the 25 best Greek restaurants in New Jersey, I had a hard time thinking of many here in Ocean County.

Sure, we have plenty of diners that have great Greek food on their menus, but finding restaurants that are focused on Greek cuisine in Ocean County takes a bit of searching.

But, according to the article, one of the few Greek restaurants that we do have here in Ocean County is one of the best in the state.

Food writer Peter Genovese singled out Tuckerton's Kostas Grill for the honor, writing:

[Kostas Grill] is a welcome addition to the Greek food wasteland that is southern Ocean County. The menu is more expansive and creative than the usual Greek restaurant offerings, with such dishes as Greek mac n cheese (made with spinach, feta, kefalograviera cheese and golden bread crumbs); Aegean mussels; Oysters Onassis; skirt steak pita and a vegetarian moussaka among the choices. The gyros are first-rate, and the horiatiki (village) salad is terrific.

You can check out Kostas Grill for yourself at 161 E. Main Street in Tuckerton.
