The Monmouth Service Area on the Garden State Parkway is opening new dining options for commuters.

Ummm ... yes please! I pass this twice a week when commuting, so I need this.

Not only will a Shake Shack be opening, so will an Auntie Anne’s and a Starbucks.

Yum! I definitely see myself stopping by for a burger or a pretzel.

Also, coffee ... Starbucks is the best pick-me-up for long drives.

I'm here for this.

This service plaza has been under construction since last September and has recently just opened back up earlier this year for gas and bathrooms. A convenience store opened as well.

According to, "The new Monmouth Service Area cost an estimated $11.6 million, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority said last year."
