Just one short month after the last restaurant closed a new full BBQ place called “Small Fries - BBQ & Grill” is due to be open mid-February, and in our review of the menu and the plans from the new owner, local residents should be in for a treat.

Hopatcong Lake Regional News has an opportunity to speak to the new owner, Howard Kaplan who has been in the restaurant business for over 40 years. Howard grew up in Bergen County where his father had him working at the family Ice Cream business called Applegate Farm in Montclair, NJ. I just came back from Florida last year, and I was looking to open another restaurant in the area, I really like Hopatcong and “When you see an opportunity comes up like this location, you just have to jump on it.” Stated Howard.

Looking at an early version of the menu that isn’t quite finished, local residents will have selections from Beef, Chicken, Pork as well as, Hot Dogs, Hamburgers and Sliders. There are also several sides which include Onion Rings, French Fries, Salads, Corn on the Cob and many others.

The food can be purchased ala carte, as a meal or even as a family pack where you are getting full chickens, pulled pork, ribs, brisket and all of the sides for the entire family meal.

And the additional benefit for Families on the Go – is having “Meals to Go” available at the front of the store always all ready to go, just stop in, pick it up, and you're done in less than 5 minutes.

“This is what my experience tells me we need to launch, but we’ll start working closely with the community as we move forward, and we can add additional things as we go forward. As we are getting ready to launch, we’ve met several of the residents, and we look forward to working in this town, the people are very friendly and welcoming.”
