My husband was raised in Avenel and introduced me to Nora's. They are mainly a take out place. What a great value for the money! When you order a chicken parm meal, you get a container of chicken, another one of pasta and a third one with a salad(I love the Caesar salad) Enough for 3-4 people! They have very good sandwiches too...also very large. Service is great and very friendly. Give this place a try one night when you just don't feel like cooking.
