Trenton Makes . . . The World Takes!
I grew up on this stuff.
Looks delicious. Arepas are easy to make. I think we are going to have family arepa night instead of taco Tuesday tonight!
When I was in college in Ohio we'd call this "trainwreck"
Don't forget your roots. What about a shout-out to Trenton Tomato Pies!
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?
This is a terrific burger spot. They also have a lot of great local microbrews to enjoy with your burger!
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.
I know it is not true chicago style, but I'm a fan of the cormeal crust. Beer Selction is very good as well.
Red clam pie with extra garlic @ Delorenzo's = heaven
Great article. I'd vote for Stadium Mustard on a Nathan's Hot Dog. Also, Pepper Hash or Chimichurri on a sausage, MMMMM!
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.
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.
My grandpa Leo would love this article! He had a nightcap of slivovitz every night after dinner.
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.
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.
Whoa! you need to fix that "Trenton Tomato Pie" link. I think you meant to link to Delorenzo's Tomato Pies!!
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.
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.
Red clam pie, light on the cheese, with extra garlic from DeLorenzo's. WAY!
Mama Lucia's (all over MD and DC area) has good NY style pies.
Huh? Much better haogies in the DC area. What about the Italian Store, Mangilardo's, or Taylors Gourmet?
Haven't tried, but Pizzeria Paradiso in Georgetown makes nice pies (and they have an outstanding beer selection to go along with them).
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.
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.
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.
