    My Trip Report

    Heading to The Borgata for one night today. Wife letting me go because we got some carry on luggage to review for Amazon Vine, so I told her I would use that and give her input. I am working this morning and had to go into the office for a meeting, so will be leaving from Work (King of Prussia, PA) area so will take a little longer to get there.
    I plan on playing the 7pm poker tournament, some slots and hopefully some blackjack.

    I have a comped Water Club room for the night, and I think I might have $20 slot dollars available.

    I hope to post lots of pictures. I may go over to the boardwalk, time permitting.

    Heading out. Waze says it is 1.5 hours which would be good but I am going to stop at mission BBQ for lunch. I love BBQ and will be driving right by exit so might as well. Should be about 40 minutes to get there.

    Mission BBQ is near the deptford mall. They are also building one in king of Prussia at the new shopping area by wegmans so there will be one 2 minutes from work which will be dangerous. The one in deptford is about 20 minutes from my house.

    I like Tony lukes there is one in KOP malll and one less than 10 minutes from my house. I get the chicken steak though.

    I'm partial to the Original Tony Luke's on Oregon Ave. in Philly. Carmens is a local place just off the Black Horse pike and you can get back on to 42 via Clements Bridge rd. Carmens gets really busy for lunch, so might want to phone it in. Primos is pretty good for a chain, the seeded rolls are the key. Speaking of rolls, if you're further up the Black Horse Pike, check out DelBuono's bakery, I think a dozen rolls are around $3. Dang, didn't want to turn this into a food blog, but I'm very familiar with that area. Just a little further south in Somerdale is Flying Fish Brewing Co, they just picked up two medals at the Great American Beer Festival.

    You made great time, Good luck!

    I'm in Gloucester Township, so everything you describe very close to me. Agree the seeded roll is key for primos. Some locations aren't great I prefer chestnut st location in center city back when worked there.
