-Diners Drive Ins & Dives

OPA! This cozy corner is the most authentic Greek spot in the area and continues to have a humble feel despite it's Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives debut. Guy Fieri doesn't kid around. The gyro is indeed delectable. But the moussaka is where I've found my Greek Corner comfort. Flavorful ground beef is served in a large lasagna-like slice with eggplant and creamy yet somehow fluffy cheese. It's truly love in food form. All of the specialty plates include a Greek salad and choice of rice or fries, so you've got a hefty meal on your hands for around $13. Killer hummus plates with olives and toboule, falafel, and keep that tazakiki coming. Best gryo I've ever had anywhere hand downs. Actually i didn't care for the falafel thought was kinda dry.

Went here on a recommendation from my dad, boy did he have it right. This is literally the best salad bar I have ever had anywhere. It was mind numbing. Hummus, pickles, tabouli, pita, soup, pumpkin bread. Wait, rewind. All you can eat pumpkin bread? Yes, and it was the best I've ever had. By the time my lobster came I was stuffed. My lobster dinner was decent, nothing special but when we left we had a great feeling of satisfaction. Mental physical emotional satisfaction. This is the place to be for a great meal, a great night to remember. My new go to in Maine.

Vegetarians beware! This is a full on meat assault. No holding back nose to tail. Get the pig head, Yes a full pigs head. Huge beer selection, crazy charcuterie what more could you ask for. They also sell some of their sausages by the LB butcher style. I got the pig head Cuban with a Cheerwine. Portions are alittle small but to be expected in a hip Manhattan spot. This place rocks for a nice salami plate and a craft beer on tap.

Nick Tahou's has been a Rochester institution since 1912. Their culinary legacy remains the amazing dish known as simply the garbage plate. It is up to each customer to choose the foundation of his or her garbage plate. The foundation is piles of baked beans and home-fried potatoes, a scoop of cool macaroni salad, a dollop of spicy chili sauce, some spicy mustard, and a sprinkle of chopped raw onions. It can then be topped with Texas hot wieners, hamburgers, Italian sausage, steak, or even a grilled cheese sandwich.
It is a wild, ridiculous, delicious mess! Especially noteworthy are the burger or Texas Hots garbage plate. Or even try 1 of each on the same plate.

Burgers are OK, but upper New York State is hot dog country. Nick Tahou’s are exemplary, if not epicurean. They are called Texas hots, and they are split and fried, which gives them a nice, chewy exterior and hash house raunch that boiled or even charcoal-grilled weenies do not offer. 

This is massive. I couldn't even finish it. It was so good. I still dream of it, I swear.  So much food and really quite cheap. $6-8. I'm totally stoked to go back.

If you want the best burger your lips have ever tasted then look no further. Boston Burger Company is killing it all over the Boston area with multiple locations and a food truck. Mac and cheese, jalapeño poppers, pinapple, stuffing, maple syrup, peanut butter, just to name a few toppings. 
I had the mac and cheese stuffed burger and my brother had the 420 burger. The 420 burger is topped with onion rings, french fries, fried mac and cheese, jalapeño poppers, and mozzarella sticks. All burgers come with homemade chips and a side. Good stuff don't miss out.

Located a few blocks from Havard campus, in Cambridge, Union Square Doughnuts serves super high end treats to the nation's smartest college students. They are no dummies at $3 a pop with flavors like hazelnut crunch, bourbon sea salt, or boston cream. Very light still warm sophisticated flavors. They got it going on, but $36 a dozen is def something to consider. I'd go back if I was in the neighborhood but not really a destination.

This place blew me away. I never knew Providence was so hip. Hewtin's hotdog truck used to serve up outrageous meats in tube form downtown, but they closed their doors. Now they serve up the meats to the street from a window of a french restaurant (Chez Pascal). All wurts are made in house with local ingredients. They have a rotating menu with a special wurst of the day always changing. I had the cheddar wurst with bacon jam and bacon onions also the Peking Duck wurst with pinapple slaw and smoked rib ragout. They are also famous for their bacon wrapped meatloaf and pork belly ruben. All wursts come with a side of potato salad and an array of toppings. They only serve the goods during lunch so get there while you can because during dinner it turns into Chez Pascal. Being across the street for a really nice park makes it super easy for a picnic with the kids. Next time I'm in town I will definitely stop back.

Faicco's is one of New York City's oldest businesses, and has been serving up high-quality meats, imported Italian specialties, and prepared foods in the West Village since 1900. Always a stop on the many of New Yorks foodie tours for sandwiches, aranchini, fresh butchered meats, and cheeses to name a few. Faicco continually gets picked top Italian mix sub in Manhattan by food blogs and foodies all over. Let's just say it didn't disappoint. Killer cold cuts, fresh homemade mozzarella, sundried tomatoes on a seeded semolina. This place gives Arthur Ave a run for its money. I'll be back

White Mana has some pretty hefty credentials to live up to. A New Jersey Institution since 1939, serving 3000 burgers a day. This location was the actual first diner introduced to the world, at the 1939 world's fair in Flushing Meadow Queens. The owner had 5 White Manna locations around Nj but only 2 survived. Somewhere down the line the Jersey City location dropped an N and is now Mana. 
We are talking real sliders. This was before White Castle. White Castle ripped White Manna off.  They have just the right mix of grease to onion to cheese. At $1.12 a piece you'll probably eat 4 or 5. I've been to the Hackensack location a number of times and I must say it out preforms the Jersey City guys. Food Fueds thought so too!
