Beyond the good the restaurant is doing for the community, the team and food are very good. Creative, smart, farm fresh menu items and a staff that's dedicated and trying really hard. We had to wait a while for a table and they kinda rush you to turn the table but it's all worth it. Go there knowing you may... More

The soul kitchen is great. The food is awesome and you'll want to pay it forward and leave more than the suggested donation Bc the staff is friendly and welcoming and they are all volunteers! The environment is so positive. It's such a great concept. You won't go just once! I've eaten here several times and have always left feeling... More

This place is "the best" great cause and great food. Please visit and make a donation. Everyone is always welcoming and friendly and the tables are setup as family style so you can converse with other folks at your table. Great way to meet people who all have a common goal, support the folks that need our help.

The all-you-can-pay & community supporting concept were the main drives for my visit. We were arranged to share the table so we talked to some strangers. People came here to support with a thankful mind. Food were unexpectedly tasty & presentable! Some of the staff wee youngsters yet they were efficient & friendly . It was a wonderful dinner experience... More

We were in NJ for a concert last weekend, and had the good fortune to have lunch at JBJ. For a suggested donation of $20, you can have a choice of soup or salad (many salad ingredients grown on premises or at a nearby farm), a choice of three entrees, a dessert and unlimited fresh iced tea (delicious). Everything is... More
