By Gabriela L. Laracca, Asbury Park Press,


Now's your chance to vote for your favorite spot in our Pork Roll Playoff before it's too late — because we're down to the final four!

Over 18,000 votes have been placed in the competition so far, and in just two weeks, your favorite shop could be crowned victor. The third round of voting begins Wednesday, March 15, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 17 (St. Patrick's Day).

Here's what readers have been saying:

  • "Allenwood General Store is the BEST... no question!"
  • "Beach Shack Deli all day. Can't beat 'em."
  • "You know it's Bing's Deli" followed by several other comments that seemed to simply shout "BING'S!"
  • "[Johnny's Pork Roll] truck is the winner here obviously"

Our favorite comment? "Well after the winner is announced looks like I'll be paying a visit to the winner! Best of Luck."

Votes are limited to one per day. Be sure to get your friends and family to vote for your favorite by sharing the matchups on social media with #PorkRollPlayoff.

Johnny's Pork Roll and Coffee Too (Red Bank) vs. Bing's Deli (Avon)

The sandwiches at Johnny's in Red Bank are made with pork roll that is sliced thin and cooked till crispy (owner John Yarusi treats it like bacon). Bing's Deli in Avon makes their sandwich with a generous amount of pork roll on a Portuguese or hard roll.

Frank's Deli (Asbury Park) vs. Beach Shack Deli (Point Pleasant Beach)

The cash-only Frank's Deli in Asbury Park is a longtime favorite for a classic pork roll, egg and cheese. For summer visitors in Point Pleasant Beach, a day isn't complete without a breakfast sandwich from the seasonal Beach Shack Deli.
