SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ -Tasty’s Grill on Park Avenue officially opened its door on Feb. 13 and, according to owner Abdulla Myers, community response has been very positive. Myers purchased the former Munchies eatery late last year and spent the last few months changing more than just the Park Avenue eatery’s name.

The restaurant has undergone a complete cosmetic overall, replacing floor and ceiling tiles, counters, pipes and equipment along with upgrading the bathrooms, painting and getting new tables and chairs. “You name it; we fixed it, changed it, upgraded it or painted it. We’ve invested a lot in this place and anything you can think of, we did,” said Myers, adding that he hopes Tasty’s will be the ‘hometown ‘ restaurant families, organizations and businesses of South Plainfield turn to for great food at their next special, community or corporate event.

Tasty’s Grill offers a wide variety of what Myers refers to as “really good and fresh fast food” made only from the best products. Menu items include wings, Texas wieners, cheese steaks, gyros and wraps, burgers, salads, sandwiches and numerous side orders such as fries, onion rings, mozzarella sticks and jalapeno poppers as well as homemade desserts. Additionally, food is prepared by South Plainfield resident Ahmed Baraya, who served as chef of the former establishment for 5 years.

“It’s a win-win. He has a great following and, at the same time, is teaching me and I am learning from him,” said Myers who operated a commercial cleaning franchise before making the leap into the restaurant business. “The food industry isn’t going anywhere and if you do it right you can have success,” he said.

According to Myers, the eatery boasts a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere, has respectful and polite employees and, most importantly, really good food. “There are a lot of fast food places but not many where you leave saying ‘that was really good,’” he said. “Here, the food is really good.”

Tasty’s Grill offers dine-in, take-out and free delivery (with a minimum $10 purchase) as well as catering and is open seven-days-a-week. For more information, visit or call (908) 226-4990.
