Breakfast of Champions: Why New Jersey is Crazy for Pork Roll

Trenton Makes . . . The World Takes!

I grew up on this stuff.

Meet the Venezuelan Arepa King of NYC

Looks delicious. Arepas are easy to make. I think we are going to have family arepa night instead of taco Tuesday tonight!

Don't forget your roots. What about a shout-out to Trenton Tomato Pies!

Grilled Romaine Hearts With Buttermilk-Dill Dressing

I tried something like this (I actually only grilled lettuce on flat side) and the lettuce came out too wilted? Any tips to avoid such problems? Perhaps keeping the grill lid open/off would help?

Chattanooga, TN: All Aboard for Loaded Burgers at Urban Stack

This is a terrific burger spot. They also have a lot of great local microbrews to enjoy with your burger!

Washington, DC: Matchbox Slings Solid, Accessible Pies

Miniburgers are excellent. In addition to their pizzas (which I'm partial to the Fire & Smoke and the Spicy Meatball), I also like the grilled steak ceasar salad. Best of all, they usually have a healthy roster of interesting micro-brews to go along with the pies.

Deep Dish Pies from Washington, DC's District of Pi

I know it is not true chicago style, but I'm a fan of the cormeal crust. Beer Selction is very good as well.

Poll: Seafood on Pizza?

Red clam pie with extra garlic @ Delorenzo's = heaven

Staff Picks: Our Favorite Condiments for Burgers and Hot Dogs

Great article. I'd vote for Stadium Mustard on a Nathan's Hot Dog. Also, Pepper Hash or Chimichurri on a sausage, MMMMM!

Pizza CS in Rockville, MD: Decent Neapolitan Among the Strip Malls

I really wanted to like this place, but the crust was disappointing. I asked for pizza "well done" but that still didn't correct the problem. Love the free fossball and shuffleboard tables.

Daily Slice: Pete's New Haven Style Apizza in Washington DC

Pete's is definitely my favorite in DC (better than 2 Amy or some of the other acclaimed spots in DC) The clam pie is very good. They usually have a pretty good selection of beers on tap as well.

In Praise of Slivovitz, Eastern European Plum Brandy

My grandpa Leo would love this article! He had a nightcap of slivovitz every night after dinner.

Philadelphia: Beautiful Retro Burgers at Gino's in King of Prussia

Great to see Gino's making a comeback. I remember it fondly from my youth. Was one of the better regional chains compared to Red Barn and Burger Chef. I'm assuming they no longer carry KFC.

Trenton, New Jersey's De Lorenzo's to Close Hudson Street Location

Sad news. It should be preserved as a national historic landmark. Like many Trenton families, it was a family tradition. My dad went there after high school. We'd go every Thursday night growing up, and now I take my ddaughter there (when I can). Sam's place in Robbinsville keeps the family tradition alive. I hope Gary enjoy's a well deserved retirement and makes some guest appearances at Sam's location.

Daily Slice: Corropolese Bakery, Norristown PA

Whoa! you need to fix that "Trenton Tomato Pie" link. I think you meant to link to Delorenzo's Tomato Pies!!

Would You Rather Have Good Bad Pizza, or Bad Good Pizza?

I'd rather have good "bad pizza". Went to a new VPN style place outside DC. Crust was soggy, very disappointing and expensive. Rather have a good "bad" pizza such as Ledo's. Living in DC, about the best you can hope for is a good "bad" pizza. Looking forward to visiting the family in NJ over the holidays for some good "good" pizza.

Anyone Else Like Pork Roll?

Born in Trenton and Grew up nearby. Taylor Pork Roll is the best. Best in a sandwhich with egg & cheese or just cheese. I think I even saw a recipe here on S.E. for a pork-roll topped burger.

Slice Poll: Clam Pie, Way or No Way?

Red clam pie, light on the cheese, with extra garlic from DeLorenzo's. WAY!

United States of Pizza: Maryland

Mama Lucia's (all over MD and DC area) has good NY style pies.

A Sandwich a Day: Hot Sicilian at The Deli in Fairfax, VA

Huh? Much better haogies in the DC area. What about the Italian Store, Mangilardo's, or Taylors Gourmet?

Washington, D.C.: Il Canale Is Georgetown's First True Neapolitan Pizza

Haven't tried, but Pizzeria Paradiso in Georgetown makes nice pies (and they have an outstanding beer selection to go along with them).

A Sandwich a Day: Smoked Meat at Schwartz's Montreal Hebrew Delicatessen

Great sandwich. My wife and I made a point of stopping here on our trip to Montreal a few years back. Well worth it. Wish we could get something like it in the states. Also have great bagels (made in a wood burning oven) in Montreal as well.

A Sandwich a Day: Italian Roast Pork at DiNic's in Philadelpha, PA

Used to stop here every time I was in Philly. Make sure you have lots of napkins, these sandwiches are juicy. I also highly recommend you add the provolone. It is sharp provolone (not the stuff you usually get on a hoagie) and adds a terrific flavor to the sandwich.

Costco, a Pizza Chain Hiding in Plain Sight

Do Not Like! Way too much cheese, cardboard crust, strange sauce. If you are gonna east at Costco you will be much better off with the 1/4lb all beef Hebrew National Hot Dog or the Italian Sausage sandwich with peppers & onions.
