Great barbecue, headline item is the ribs, the hamburger is terrific, the pulled pork is very popular, and I enjoy the wings. Highly recommended, especially if you're out for a ride/drive...enjoy a local favorite.
M & E BBQ proves you don't need a big fancy restaurant to serve up good food, when I did a yelp search on the area I was a little surprise to see a BBQ joint out here in the middle of the piney woods and I was even more surprised when I drove up. It has all the basic requirements, there were about a dozen pickup trucks parked on all sides of this "food trailer" on wheels with a canopy covering a number of picnic tables out front. A walk up window for ordering staffed by some very friendly folks so grab an outside seat and wait for your order to be yelled out. Looking around to see what the locals were eating I got the recommendation to try a sampler, pulled pork smothered in sauce it didn't taste bad but it really didn't appeal to my taste, the ribs on the other hand wow tender, juicy, smoked just enough and seasoned with a simple rub I'm a fan. I knew this guy knew what he was doing when I peeked out back and saw the giant smoker. I didn't care for the slaw but loved the crinkle cut fries bag or no bag they were just out of the fryer and really tasty. I definitely will return they also have fried chicken wings and burgers I'm hoping the burgers are prepared on the smoker as well if this is the case this place makes the list in my opinion. So if you want to try some roadside BBQ where the focus is on the food give them a try.
Great place to eat in a rustic atmosphere. 5 of us bikers drove 45 miles to eat here becouse of word of mouth. Not disappointed! Nice ride great food. Thanks!

ESSEX Seafood is located on SR40 just 26 mi. west of I-95. The food is so good and reasonable that I would walk the 26 miles for a meal. Fresh northern seafood like clams, steamers, Maine Lobster served as you like it . Their breading is light, delicate and tasty. if you're smart, start with an order of their onion rings. AMAZING! I had lunch of fried shrimp with fries for $6.99 and was stuffed. GO! TRY IT! YOU WILL LOVE THIS PLACE!
I have been looking for whole belly comes like they have in Connecticut for my wife for years. This place was recommended and it did NOT disappoint. WOW I would have never thought that this small place out in nowhere would make you feel like you flew to the Connecticut shore. They fry everything but you can also get some items grill or bake. The Mac and cheese side was nice. Applesauce was clearly a store bought lunch cup you get for your kids. Baked potato was OK. I think I will try the French fries or onion rings next time. It may be a drive for us but we will be back! Cash only - my wife and I each had the platters and the bill was under $40. My salmon platter had two nice pieces of salmon and two sides. The whole belly clams was enough for two. They are closed on Tuesday starting March 2015.
We have been regularly stopping in at least 5 times a year since 2008. Clams with whole bellies were ok not as good as NH and MA. But my last two visits, the clams were burned and over cooked.Also, I hardly saw any Bellies in my clams. They must've had some turnover help in the kitchen, a cook who doesn't know how to fry Clams. I won't be coming back anytime soon. If they don't get their act together soon, they will loose more customers...
