Our DUI Lawyers’ Favorite Restaurants In Downtown Camden, NJ

Camden’s food and restaurant scene may not have the same reputation as Philadelphia’s, but you can find all kinds of delicious food in downtown Camden. Our New Jersey DWI lawyers have a few favorite spots that we like to frequent on our lunch breaks. If you’re in the downtown Camden area and looking for a good bite to eat, we recommend the following spots:

Guido’s Pizza

Guido’s is a simple, classic neighborhood joint. You can stop in here for a quick slice, or order a whole pie for dining in, pickup, or delivery. The service is always friendly here, and anyone who grew up in New Jersey will feel at home here. Guido’s features all of your favorite pies, along with some other Italian dishes.

Some of our favorite things to order at Guido’s include:

Fresh Mex

Fresh Mex offers authentic Mexican dishes including burritos and bowls. Think of it as a tastier and more authentic version of Qdoba, and more affordable prices. Fresh Mex is a true hidden gem, and one of our favorite places to grab lunch in downtown Camden, and they also serve breakfast and dinner. The menu is also pretty diverse, with a variety of American options included.

We’re big fans of the following menu items at Fresh Mex:
