The Best Restaurants In Parsippany-Troy Hills, NJ

While nearby Philadelphia and New York City may have a stronger reputation for delicious food, don’t get confused – New Jersey has plenty of amazing restaurants of their own. When our Parsippany DWI lawyers are looking for a good meal, we enjoy visiting the following places in the area:

The Original Pancake House

The Original Pancake House is a chain restaurant with three locations in New Jersey. If you grew up in the Garden State, odds are you’ve visited here several times for a family breakfast. It’s a Jersey staple for a good reason – the food here is consistently delectable. If you’re visiting on the weekend, make sure to get there early, otherwise, you can expect a long wait for a table. Ideally, you should shoot to arrive before 9 a.m. if you want to avoid the crowds.

Some of our favorite dishes at Orginal Pancake House include:

  • Dutch Baby
  • Danish Kijafa Cherry Crepes
  • The Tahitian Maiden’s Dream
  • Canadian Bacon and Eggs
  • Ham and Cheese Omelette


Chain restaurants sometimes get a bad rap, but just about every burger fan loves Fuddruckers. Specializing in gourmet burgers and other premium traditional American cuisine, this chain has gained a reputation as one of the best chain restaurants in the region. Besides the delicious food, Fuddruckers is great because of the little things, such as unlimited fries with your burger and unlimited refills.

In our opinion, some of the best options on the Fuddruckers menu include:

  • Southwest Taco Salad
  • Grilled Summer Salad
  • Ultimate Bacon Grilled Cheeseburger
  • Southwest Spicy Ranch Burger
  • Avocado Chicken BLT

Churrasco Grill

Churrasco Grill is an intimate little restaurant with an extensive and diverse menu, featuring a combination of New American, Peruvian, and Argentine cuisines. It’s a great spot for a romantic date, family dinner, or just about any other event that calls for a great meal. With so many choices and so many flavors, everyone in your dining party is sure to find something that hits the spot perfectly.

We’re personally big fans of the following dishes at Churrasco Grill:

  • Ceviche Mixto
  • Mesclun Salad
  • Filet Mignon and Shrimp
  • Churrasco (Skirt Steak)
  • Rack of Lamb

Tito’s Burritos & Wings

Who doesn’t love a good burrito or an order of delicious chicken wings? At Tito’s you can find delicious options for both. You also have your choice of a variety of side dishes at delicious sauces to add to your food. The menu has no shortage of diversity, so it’s a good choice if you’re trying to appease different tastes among members of your party.

If you’re planning to visit Tito’s soon and are wondering what to order, we recommend the following choices:

  • The Bird Is The Word – Burrito with grilled chicken breast, black beans, rice, cheese, sour cream, pico de gallo, and fresh guacamole
  • Heartfelt Blackened Salmon – Burrito with grilled salmon, brown rice, pineapple sauce, lettuce, pico de gallo, and sliced avocado
  • The Tony Hawk – Tacos with fried chicken tenders, lettuce, ranch, pico de gallo, and cilantro
  • Balboa Shrimp Tacos – Sauteed garlic shrimp, shredded cabbage, bell papers, cilantro and lime sauce, and pico de gallo
  • Wings with Aloha Sauce – Hawaiian teriyaki BBQ sauce and pineapple

Ruth’s Chris Steak House

With locations all over the United States and even in Mexico and Central and South America, Ruth’s Chris is one of the most popular chain steakhouses in the world. But don’t let their status as a chain fool you – Ruth’s Chris offers cuts just as delicious as any family-owned premium steakhouse.

You really can’t go wrong here, as the whole menu is amazing. But we’re personally big fans of the following items:

  • Cowboy Ribeye
  • Petite Filet & Shrimp
  • Porterhouse For Two
  • Lobster Tail
  • Bone-in Filet
