Then I say we forget Pandls and meet at Benjis ....what say you all?


We agree! Benji's on Oakland is the place for breakfast. I'll probably have a corned beef sandwich and a bowl of matzo ball soup for breakfast and Mrs. CSD will have the hoppel poppel.

    Benji's opens at 7:00am. Would sometime between 9:00 & 10:00am work for you?

    If ya'll don't meet up with BB until near 10 am, the true question is where will he have his PRE-breakfast meal(s)?

        Buffetbuster should be on his 3rd or 4th breakfast by then!

            I really like the idea of Benji's, but my recollection of the place is that it is on the small side.  Depending on how many we have, will there be enough room?

              I don't take up much room...and I usually just nibble!

                        Susan,

                        If you are passing through on May 23 there will be a large group of Roadfood people in my yard for my annual barbecue party.  I'd be honored to have some experts from the South attend and provide their opinion of this Yankee's barbecue.  Check in with Ann as time gets closer.  I expect she will be here.

                            Miss Ann and Miss Susan, if you're thinking about having a little RF gathering in May, I hope you'll see fit to include the likes of me. If you're not sure about whether you should, just ask BuddyRoadhouse; he'll tell you that I'm not too repugnant ( I hope. ) I'm going to be down in the Carolinas the first week of May ( Beacon, here I come! ), and I sure hope that won't mess up my chances of getting to meet you lovely ladies.

                                  Well, that date went right on to my calendar!  Thanks for the heads up Jim.  Sorry we missed you and Bobbi today at Polonez (and Annie, too).  You missed some great grub as I'm sure you've read in that other thread.

                                      iqdiva, who are you seeing @ Mayo? I can tell you where to go & where to avoid eating at up there. I've been going to Rochester since 2005.



                                      Stricken_Detective ... I've been a Rochester Mayo patient since 1994 ... We've always stayed at the Hampton Inn ... The folks there are like family to us... Our favorite places to eat  are Whistle Binkies and The Canadian Honker .. And , we always make a road trip to Slippery's in Wabasha for a burger !
                                      At Mayo , I have a main coordinating physician , Dr. John Paat , who oversees the nine different specialists that I visit .
                                      Thank you for sharing !

                                                iqdiva, who are you seeing @ Mayo? I can tell you where to go & where to avoid eating at up there. I've been going to Rochester since 2005.



                                                Stricken_Detective ... I've been a Rochester Mayo patient since 1994 ... We've always stayed at the Hampton Inn ... The folks there are like family to us... Our favorite places to eat  are Whistle Binkies and The Canadian Honker .. And , we always make a road trip to Slippery's in Wabasha for a burger !
                                                At Mayo , I have a main coordinating physician , Dr. John Paat , who oversees the nine different specialists that I visit .
                                                Thank you for sharing !


                                                My grandma has been a patient there since the late 60's, we both see Dr Torres. I like Victoria's downtown & then out by Hampton Inn was The Ranch. They are closed now. There is a pizza restaurant right next to that, Mr Pizza? That is very good. Next time I go up I'm gonna try Pannekoeken.

                                                    We agree! Benji's on Oakland is the place for breakfast. I'll probably have a corned beef sandwich and a bowl of matzo ball soup for breakfast and Mrs. CSD will have the hoppel poppel.


                                                    According to 411.com there's a Benji's on Oakland and a Benji's on N. Port Washington.  Are they related, and is the Oakland location the one that's being discussed?  Not that it really matters, as it'd probably be at least 2 hours each way for me regardless.

                                                      We are talking about the Benjis on Oakland.While I have frequented the one on Pt.Road, its much smaller and doesnt have the ambiance of the Oakland location.The food id just as good, though!

                                                        If you make it to the Lake Mills area  be sure to have lunch at El Mariachi. The food is really good and the margaritas are the size of your head! Then afterwards head on over (walk if you like) to the corner of Lake and Church (203 W. Lake St) to this great little coffee shop located in an art gallery and ask Brenn to prepare you a Dirty Chai. She'll get a real kick out that. An added bonus being that it's really good! By the way, while you're in Lake Mills, could you pay my passed due parking violation? I had New York plates at the time and for some reason I'm pretty sure I'll be the only "New Yorker" on their most wanted list.

                                                        downtown became available, they saw a great opportunity. El Mariachi, which serves a full
                                                        menu of Mexican delicacies, along with great margaritas and other beverages, is open for both
                                                        lunch and dinner. But leave room for dessert—they are really something special! They also feature

                                                          What I do @ Victoria's is sit at the bar & get the caprese appetizer & this one time they had black raspberry creme brulee. omg. To die for. Did you go to the Pannekoeken downtown or the one out by the Hampton?

                                                            Benji's is on Oakland 3 or 4 blocks north of Capitol Drive in Shorewood on the east side of the street. Sendiks, I believe,  is on the west side maybe a block south. Did you go to Kopps after the Polonez meet up?
