    Default YESYESYEEESSSSSS!!!!!

    So do you have a bar/tavern/restaurant in your area that serves the most DELICIOUS _________________. I thought a thread dedicated to good eats and their location would help some of us find the "Hot Spots" as we travel around the country. My favorite?

    www.lubewings.com

    ***please note - This is not advertising, I have no connection to the place...it would just be nice to share info about where to get some famously good chow (in addition to Cheffie's kitchen).

    I've got a couple of 'em:
    Jeremy's Ale House is gonna be on my itenerary whenever I go back to NYC. The absolute best fried clams I've ever had.

    Locally, my favorite is Fado's. They've got the best traditional Irish food around.

    Damn it! Now I'm hungry.

    Default My Favorite Cincinnati Restaurant

    I've been going to this place for almost 20 years. Best service I ever received: they saw me walking up and had my first beer (Christian Moerlein) waiting for me.

    And yes - they do have Guinness on tap.

    It's C-H-I-L-L-I-C-O-T-H-E !

    Besides, one's in New York, and the other's in Columbus. I consider Columbus as local since I'm there a lot.

    Default Good eats...but gone now

    A good place popular among the department here in Gunnison, CO was the Cattlemen Inn. Unfortunatly it sucumbed to fire early this year. They're just about done tearing down what's left of it. Guess it's time to find a new watering hole.

    In Morpeth it has to be Giannis' Pizzaria. Great food,(I recommend the riggatoni antonio), excellent service and the waiters EVEN have fake Italian accents

    My favorite place around me is "An Poitin Stil" commonly called "The Stil" (www.thestill.net). Best Guinness in Baltimore and good food as well. It's also close enough that I can walk home if necessary.

    If you guys are ever in the Las Cruces, NM area and want some fine southwestern (not mexican) food, go to "Nellie's". It the best! Take my word for it.

    Second best is "Roberto's". They have this little rotating crack-house window you have to pay and get your food from. It makes the trip really worth it. Definitely memorable (if not a bit scary!).

    Ok, since I am a larger woman and DEFINATELY love my food, these are the best places (IMHO) around Minneapolis:

    Mexican - Chipoltes
    Oriental - Oriental House, Fridley
    AYCE - Old Country Buffet
    Coffee and treats - Caribou Coffee
    After Bar gut bombs - White Castle
    Pizza - Sammy's in Duluth (about 3 hours away but WORTH the drive)
    And last but not least - Good down home cooking on a Sunday afternoon?? My house!


    Raven - I used to live in San Diego - Roberto's, Roberititos, Alberto's ... You name it, any place that ended in O and had mexican food with the little crack house window ROCKED!

    Cool

    Anyway for Burgers in the Mpls area you need to try the Lions Tap in Eden Prarrie on Hwy 212 just down from the airport.
    In Kansas City lets Arthur Bryants BBQ and the Golden OX for Steak

    Check out www.firehousebrewing.com. It's located in Rapid City, SD and built in the old (1915) headquarters fire station. Good variety of beer and food plus a comedy club. Interior decor is "firehouse".

    Another unique place is Sanford's Grub & Pub. Mcrobrewery plus over one hundred domestic and imported beers and ales and a large menu. Located in Rapid City, and Spearfish, SD. Interior decor is "junkyard" (think Sanford & Son TV show). Food served on metal plates resembeling hubcabs, napkins are a roll of paper towels at each table. You could visit daily for a month and not see everything in the decor on the walls, ceiling, and every nook and cranny. Rapid City Sanford's is housed in a former railroad freight warehouse, Spearfish is in a former auto shop.
