Pete and Elda’s Bar & Carmen’s Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant – The Best Thin-Crust Pizza on the Jersey Shore!

Pete and Elda’s Bar & Carmen’s Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant – The Best Thin-Crust Pizza on the Jersey Shore!

One of my favorite spots at the Jersey Shore in the Neptune area is Pete and Elda’s Bar and Carmen’s Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant. It is located in Neptune City at 96 Woodland Ave./Route 35. When people hear the name Pete and Elda’s Pizza they immediately think of one thing: the BEST thin crust pizza on the Jersey shore. They claim to have invented the thin-crust style pizza that has become very popular over the last couple of years. I don’t know if they invented it or not, but I do know that it is the best thin-crust pizza I have ever eaten.

When you enter the restaurant, you walk into a very large bar area- complete with big screen TVs showing all of your favorite sports. This is a great place to grab a quick snack, an after work cocktail, or just to watch the game with friends. You can also eat at the bar, where you will get 2 separate checks – one for the food and the other for the bar. They always have specials at the bar on both food and drinks.

They have a very large restaurant area- but don’t let that fool you! If you go in without reservations, you could wind up waiting. I have been to this place over 100 times – I’m sure I have had everything on the menu numerous times, so here are a couple of my favorites. If you are looking for a hot appetizer, I would go for the Mussels in a red sauce. You get a pile of steaming mussels covered in a spicy marinara, served with bread. For the salad lovers in your group, I would definitely recommend the chopped cold antipasti -fresh garden vegetables, salami, and provolone cheese served with ice cold iceberg lettuce, chopped and mixed. You get a choice of dressings, but I usually just stick with traditional oil and balsamic vinegar. This will easily serve two adults. All of their hot and cold sandwiches areserved on fresh Italian bread – and if you are in the mood for pasta, they offer many to choose from. I recommend the linguine and white clam sauce – a big bowl of al dente linguine smothered in a delicious clam sauce.

But back to the pizza – they serve the crispiest, most flavorful pizza on the Jersey Shore! Of course, they offer all of the usual toppings. One of the fun things that Carmen’s does is give a free t-shirt to anyone who can eat a XL pizza alone – finish this by yourself, and you will join the very exclusive Carmen’s Whole Pizza Eaters Club. This promotion has been going on for years and is very popular – I am proud to say that I am a member of this club many times over.

Overall, this is a great experience. They have something for everyone, and a great atmosphere. It is kid-friendly, and they have a full bar for the adults. So head on over to Pete and Elda’s and Carmen’s Pizzeria for the best thin-crust pizza on the Jersey Shore!
