We all have food franchises around us, but is there a little mom and pop type joint that you like to eat at, that's basically owned small time by a mom and pop or some family? There's a pizzeria here in the city called Luke's(if you live near you might know about it). It's become pretty popular as of late, but I usually hit because they have yet to change their price for a slice of pepperoni and a drink for years, which is what keeps people coming. There is a Pizza Hut, Papa John's and others all around it, but I never hesitate to go there instead.

so you like "italian beef", huh?

i usually go to either "joe's cafe" down the street from my place or "lisa's radial cafe" for a good old fashoined, artery-clogging breakfast with friends on saturday or sunday mornings. you can't beat coffee, eggs, toast and hashbrowns with a heaping helping of grease when you're hungry and hungover.
 
Back where I used to live in Laurel, MD there's a diner called "The Silver Diner" that was open til like 4 a.m. I remember in high school we'd always go there really late and just talk for ages. They have the best milkshakes ever!
 
There's a diner by my house called The Annadale Diner that is awesome. It has the best French Onion Soup the world has to offer.
 
I live in a rural area, so pretty much every restaurant outside of fast food is 'mom and pop' type. We have a mexican place called Ayala's. Good food. My wife works at Cheezie's . They have practically anything you could want to eat. There's also a 24/7 place called Bimbo's. I s#it you not. Bimbo's.
 
we have incredibly delicious pizza called Mikes.
 
Iguana Joe's, best damn Cadillac Margaritas in town.
 
Ida Mae & Joes's.


Mmm, good chicken.
 
Marietta Diner
Marietta, GA

But Waffle House is always good.
 
Depending on which side of the state I'm living on at the moment, I either go to Boomers Drive-In

or to Cougar Country Drive-In

Not very exciting on the outside, true, but both make excellent burgers, fries and milkshakes, and that's all that matters. :word:
 
Everything in town here is fast food. But that's ok with me.:word:

I remember that place, though I don't remember if I ever ate there as a kid. Laurel used to be a decent place...now, not so much. :csad:
 
Spartanburg, SC........The Beacon

I don't know why it is so famous, but whenever a presidential candidate comes through town, they always stop at The Beacon. In fact, there was some republican candidate there last night. I can't remember who.

They have the best chili cheese burgers and their banana splits are big enough for four people to eat off of.
 
In Harvard Square. Lee's Sandwich Shop. Best BLT's you'll ever find. God, I could go for one now. Great meatball subs too.
 
we have a place in downtown oakland called "prospect park"..best cheese omelet i've ever eaten, they give you too much food for breakfast,old fashioned hashbrowns, eggs, bacon good stuff.Had to stop going because a brother started packing on weight..lol

Yeah, I'm glad I don't live there anymore. My dad still does, and it's not a bad neighborhood at all, but as a city I just don't like it.

This thread makes me really hungry :csad:

It got too crowded. Used to love going to the drive-in across from the Laurel mall...when there was a drive-in that is. God I'm getting old. :csad:

Is Maryland City Elementary still there?
 
Where i live,yes there are some local eateries.More so than one would think,i could name them but i doubt people would know about Europe.

Haha wow, I can't remember there being a drive-in. I'm not sure about the elementary school...I never really paid attention to the schools when I was going through the Maryland City area. I just know that there are a million stores there now!
