My uncle took me here when I was a youngin’, oh so many years ago. The food was beyond greasy. A stool was missing. Being the obstinate child that I was, I asked. His response? This is Yelp, so I’ll keep it PC.
I started going to Skyway about 15 years ago. I love the sweet butter that they use on the buns so much that I order my burger plain so that nothing takes away from that great taste. I have tried Swensons and have not been nearly as impressed. When we were in Wisconsin a few years ago, I was so excited to try butter burgers thinking they would be a better version of Skyway. I was so disappointed, they were good, but not Skyway good. It’s on that bun!
I was a Swensons curb boy in the summer of 1953 before I went away to college.
As I went up to a car window to take an order, I looked in and in the center seat was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen. I knew the girl sitting to her right, so I passed her a note asking her name. I was given her name and phone number, so I called her and made a date. We dated all summer long before I left for the University of Oklahoma in late August. We saw each other many times over the next 4 years, but…
One of the best places to watch football and eat Po Boys in New Orleans. BIG place with great views of the TVs.
The true old Italian Gravy House. I’m not the True Old Italian as I had to embarass myself by admitting to someone that I did not know that Gravy was sauce. Ouch! I went down a few points on that one.
The same goes for Belgrade Gardens, another Barberton Chicken staple. This town is the “Fried Chicken Capital of the World”! And only two people have ever written reviews for White House?
Woodman’s is famous for inventing the fried clams. They’ve also received numerous accolades for being a top fish restaurant in New England. This of course brings people out in droves, so expect lines and a wait for you food.
Let me get this out of the way. I don’t mean to brag at all but I’ve just achieved double Sparta level as this is my 600th review. ha ha Phew… I’ve got a long way to go, but I’ve enjoyed getting this far and hope you appreciate Yelp as much as I do. Okay, down to business.
My dad grew up about 10 minutes from Barberton. My grandparents still lived there. We visit them all the time. How had I never heard of that style of food, or either of these places?
Cupcake Stop was one of the first mobile cupcake trucks in the city and now operates a fleet of trucks in various neighborhoods.
I happened upon Ed’s Lobster Bar by chance during a brief trip to NYC. I was staying at a hotel nearby and it was late, so I didn’t feel like traveling too far. So I pulled up my trusty Yelp app and found Ed’s…and I’m glad I did.
I had bought the Google Offer for Eileen’s Cheesecake. I must say it is one of the best offers I’ve ever purchased since I’ve never been there. This gave me the opportunity to try multiple cheesecakes without overspending.
Geno’s Steaks was started by Joe Vento back in 1966. He figured that if he was going to sell a steak, he had to be where they were already eating them….at the “X” shaped intersection of 9th & Passyunk in South Philadelphia. Joe learned the cheese steak business from his father who in the early 1940’s opened “Jim’s Steaks”. In 1966, Joe started “Geno’s” with $6.00 in his pocket, 2 boxes of steaks and some hot dogs.
I always find myself back here because of Tuesdays with Gertie - every Tuesday night there are several entrees priced at $12. These aren’t plates that they made to fit the price either. They are solid dishes that have left me satisfied every single time. I’d recommend the salmon.
It’s Graeter’s. It’s good. Very good. My wife likes peach ice cream and I have to admit that Graeter’s makes an improvement on God’s fruit. Black raspberry chip? Yeah. That’s what taste buds were made for.
Pantless with ice between my legs is the last memory I have of amazing sticky buns. No, you didn’t misread that and I swear it’s true. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. After all, this is a review site, so let’s talk about Ladybird and why they are deserving of these 4 stars that I have bequeathed upon them.
All the seafood were fresh. The lobster was firm, sweet and tender. The crab was very good as well with the crab being slightly sweet. The shrimp, though small were also tender, sweet and firm.
After our Anheuser-Busch tour, we found Park Avenue Coffee in the visitor’s guide. After a futile attempt to go to a closed Gooey Louie the day before (on July 4th, of course), we were determined to sample this St. Louis staple.
Service was quick, efficient and the pizza was pretty amazing. I ordered the ricotta and basil pizza but I was able to sample a few others thanks to everyone in my group ordering a different slice.
I had been reading a great book on Frank Sinatra called “The Way You Wear Your Hat” and he said that Ralph’s was one of his favorite restaurants in Philadelphia. I figured the Chairman of the Board can’t be wrong and decided to give it a try.
