Lawnside, NJ BBQ and Soul Food (BYOB)
(Credit Cards Accepted)
Lawnside used to be the mecca of BBQ in South Jersey from the 50's to the 80's. People would come from all over the Tri-State area to get a taste of what this town had to offer. Rochester's BBQ and Grill is keeping up the tradition by serving the most authentic BBQ and Soul Food around. Their recipes are all about flavor and are inspired by the food that they grew up eating at home.
Owners (Vincent, Vernon, and Valarie Rochester) were raised in Lawnside, NJ by their parents, Ernestine and Vincent. Their home cooked meals combine the sweet and savory flavors of Rocky Mountain, NC (where Ernestine was raised) with the heat and spices of the St. Kitts and the West Indies (where Vincent was raised). These distinct flavors helped create a menu that is both tantalizing and pleasantly surprising. The food somehow tastes like a home cooked meal and like something you've never had before at the same time.
Since they learned how to cook from their mother, they have coined the phrase, "Ernestine Trained" to represent their cooking style.

Not only does the food stand out because of the large portions and unique flavors, but also the atmosphere. It's obvious that this is a family owned restaurant by the way they treat every customer with the type of service you would get when going to a friend's house for a meal. When you come to Rochester's, you tend to forget you are at a restaurant because it is so casual and comfortable. It feels just like a big family dinner. As they like to say. . . . .
"This is your place. We just run it for you."
