    There's another pizza joint in nearby Barberton called Angie's that makes pizza similar to Luigi's. Barberton, another Slavic enclave, is much better known for chicken places like Hopocan Gardens (where I first sat down to dine out) and Belgrade Gardens. If your boyfriend is a coffee lover, he ought to know about a relatively new place called Muggswigz that pours some of the best coffee in America. I now live in the Seattle area, the coffee mecca, and Muggswigz could make it here.

    They both deep fry their chicken in lard. Same for the fries. NE Ohio has never been known for healthy eating or longevity. Yes, I do live there.
    I used to eat lunch every day at the New Era in Akron and the bartender would line up shots of whiskey (groups of 3) on the bar at 11:55 awaiting the tire builders from General.

    Ate at Le Bonaparte in Quebec. Traditional French, not Quebecois. Had my first delicious Bordeaux there. I see it has closed. :( Finest restaurant in Ohio, Maisonette in Cincy, also closed a few years ago. Truly classy joint. Treated everybody like royalty, even a young not very well dressed couple (us). A rather shabbily dressed couple at the table next to us was also given the royal treatment. They must have known somebody, though, because after dessert the manager appeared and announced there would be no bill.

    The sin of it was that they would stack the fries on top of the steaming chicken. Half the time the fries were limp when they got to the table.

    I've heard of Phillipe's but never been. I need to check it out sometime when I'm down there.

    Still open. There's also Cole's which also claims to have invented the French Dip. I prefer Phillipes. My go to is a "wet" beef dip sandwich with double cheddar and spicy mustard. Cup of chili, no onions with double cheese. A side of pie.

    I’ve been to the steakhouse at the Silverado/Franklin in Deadwood (the South Dakota entry on the list linked to by the OP), although I recall the name not being Legends, so either the name got changed or I am mistaken (I mean, I was ten, so entirely possible :haha:)... the most distinct memory was the brownie sundae for dessert because having dessert period was a rarity in our household, let alone something that big and decadent :licklips::love::feedme::woohoo:

    The first place I went to have a drink when I moved to NYC was Fraunces Tavern, down at the south end of Manhattan near the Battery. George Washington frequented it. Seriously.

    I used to work in NYC Financial District. I worked two blocks from Fraunces Tavern - 1762 and ate there several times.
    I also was there when bombed by a terrorist group in 1975 and we felt the tremor of the blast. There was talk of evacuating the building at the time.
    I also ate at many other NYC old restaurants -
    Delmonicos - as mentioned above at there several times also could see it from a window when I worked at 75 Wall Street.
    Old Homestead - 1868
    Whitehorse Tavern - 1880
    PJ Clark's - 1884
    Keen's Steakhouse - 1885
    Peter Luger's - 1887
    Katz's Deli - 1888
    and more

    I've had a few business lunches at Tadish Grill (1849). SF Financial district. Last time was at least 20 years ago though...I imagine it hasn't changed much!

    I’ve eaten at the Wurstkuchl in Regensburg, Germany a few times. Apparently, it’s the oldest restaurant in Germany (1146) and the second oldest in the world. It’s located next to the Danube river.

    Okay turns out I’ve been to Union Oyster House too, which seems to be older than Louis Lunch.

    Ye Olde Tavern in Vermont is next on my list!
     
    A low strip trip? Could be….
    Boom! A comp arrives and I can’t say no

    Does anybody know why people are making a big deal about McDonald's "new" chicken sandwich? They've had chicken sandwiches on their menu in one form or another for literally decades. I keep seeing articles acting like it's some new thing they've never done before.

    https://finance.yahoo.com/news/mc-donalds-new-chicken-sandwich-leads-to-foot-traffic-boost-data-shows-221550621.html

    And just to make sure I'm sticking with the theme of the thread, I recently found out McDonald's is the fourth oldest fast food chain in the world.

    Chicken sandwich thing is odd, you're right it's nothing new. Good advertising?

    And now I need to know the top 3 oldest fast food chains in the world! LOL
