Circus Drive-In

Jersey Shore Restaurant Week

This past Tuesday, the tradition continued as the Circus Drive-In on Route 35 in Wall opened its doors. The Circus Drive-In has been opening every spring for the last 59 years. If you have never been to the Circus, you don’t know what you are missing! At this old fashioned drive-in, you pull into a parking spot and stay in your car as the waitress brings you a menu, puts a tray on your half-opened window, and then brings your food out to you. I prefer the car service for the pure novelty, but if that is not your style they also offer a sit-down restaurant.

The Circus Drive-In’s menu is sure to please the whole family. They have a long list of starters including spicy wings, pizza bagels, mozzarella sticks, and a whole lot more. If you are looking for something on the lighter side they have a selection of fresh and delicious salads – make sure you try the Mexicali, a bed of crisp lettuce covered in tortilla chips, chili, cheese, and tomatoes.

If it is a sandwich that you crave, they have everything you can think of – from wraps to grilled cheese and everything in between. My favorite is their pulled pork sandwich, served on a fresh roll. If you are in the mood for seafood, the Circus Drive-In has that covered as well. They offer a large selection of fried seafood platters, but my personal favorite is their New England style lobster roll: fresh lobster salad served on a hot dog bun. But what would a drive-in be without burgers, hot dogs, fries, and milk shakes? The Circus Drive-In offers all the traditional drive-in favorites.

Besides the great food and fun atmosphere, the Circus has a couple of special events which are open and free to the public. They have three classic car nights, when people from miles around invade the Jersey shore just to show off their classic hot rods. If you love classic cars, these events shouldn’t be missed. They also have two clown nights – a couple of very funny clowns come in to entertain children and adults alike.

The Circus Drive-In is a rare find in this day and age, and a visit is sure to evoke fun images of poodle skirts and rock-n-roll. So, what are you waiting for?
