Well, Roadfood.com is cited in this Columbus Dispatch Travel Section piece on the G&R Tavern in Waldo, Ohio, known for its fried bologna sandwiches.

Interesting article Michael. I had just read a few weeks ago that fried bologna sandwiches as restauant fare is making an affordable comeback. Some restaurants in Ga. have popularized fried bologna on a bun with a helping of cole slaw on top, much like Carolina pulled pork and it's become a hit that's being emulated. One thing that I've noticed too, is that the local chains Publix an Winn Dixie for years haven't offer any a lternative bologna besides the premium Board's Head or Dietz and Watson in their Deli's even though it's technically available on their Deli order lists. The inexpensive or store branded product hasn't been carried for several years in my area. Recently all the publix's that I have shopped at are again selling store branded regular and garlic bologna again. The previous excuse was it didn't sell and 4 rounds/box were going to waste from the meat manager of the publix I usually shop at. Big difference in price between the premium versions and the only cold cut in the deli under $4.00/lb.

Since it's their own "Proprietary Recipe" will they sell it by the pound and can you buy it in stores anywhere?
Do I understand correctly - they make it in-house?? Or does some other company make it for them?

They don't make it themselves, and their bologna isn't available in stores. I have no idea whether they'll sell it by the pound.

G&R tavern is really in the middle nowhere. There fried bologna is about the same as every other place that serves it. Not a bad place. Hamburger they serve would rate a 6 out of 10. Hard to mess up a fried bologna sandwich. Personally I like it better when it is sliced about 1/4 inch.

Ingredients:
* 2 Slices Baloney, Thick cut, each slice lightly scored at the noon, 3pm, 6pm and 9 pm positions [ prevents cupping of the meat ]
* 2 Slices Bread, White
* Onion, Sweet, Thinly sliced
* Mayonnaise, enough for spreading
Method:
* Heat cast iron pan til good and hot
* Place baloney in un-oiled pan
* Cook til nicely browned
* Spread a skift of mayonnaise on each slice of white bread
* Add thinly sliced sweet onion, some folks like it on the top, some like it on the bottom. Me I'm a top but if you're a bottom that's alright too.
* Add fried baloney
* Compact everything into the classic sandwich format

They sell quite a few bologna sandwiches at the Texaco a few miles from where I live. You can have any toppings you want on a bun or  biscuit (the biscuit is bigger than a bun).  However, I prefer the liver mush, egg, cheese, and tomato biscuits.

From www.grammarist.com 
Bologna is a meat. The word is short for bologna sausage, a type of sausage made of finely ground meat that has been cooked and smoked.
Baloney is nonsense. It is an early 20th-century American coinage derived from bologna. It may also be influenced by blarney, which in one of its definitions means nonsense or deceptive talk.
Dictionaries differ on whether baloney and bologna are homophones in English. Some say both should be pronounced “baloney,” while others say bologna should be pronounced like the Italian city, Bologna (“boloan-ya”), where the sausage originates. All authorities agree that the two spellings have different meanings.

"In Germany, "regular" bologna is referred to as Mortadella, and is mostly identical and made out of the same meats as its American counterpart, although it often contains pistachios. The original, larger and less finely ground Mortadella is called italienische Mortadella."
Mortadella's roots can be traced back to Bologna, Italy! So there we have the complete cycle and that ain't no Baloney!

Stopping in to experience G&R's Bologna aids the mystery meat taster in expectation of the bologna flavors. The bouquet or aroma - is the major determinate of perceived flavor in the mouth. Once inside the mouth, the smells are further liberated by exposure to mouth heat, and transferred retronasally to the olfactory receptor site. It is here that the complex taste experience characteristic of a bologna actually commences. Coupled with a proper smoky note, outer char or crust the once thought simple meat is turned into something more sublime than just a basic table meat originally meant for the poor and under-privileged.

Neither. It was lifted from a treatise on wine tasting. Google it.

It was a joke. You obviously did not get it.

I got it!
I laughed!
I was just wondering if I should give you an "A" for your wittiness.
Since you plagiarized it, I'll have to give you a "C".
Normally it would be a "F" but since you went to the trouble to find it, I gave you partial credit!

Iron Chef MIchael Symon has both schools of fried bologna on the menu at B Spot...

Old School fried bologna with pickles, mustard, american cheese 6.00

New School fried bologna with Russian dressing, pickled onions, sweet hot pickles, sunny-side-up egg 6.00

My girlfriend looks like Iron Chef Cat Cora...and never heard of fried bologna.

Don't they have that in Texas? She ran away for 17 years and lived in Texas before coming back to the land of Pork Roll...and honey.

If you mean pickle and pimiento loaf then sure. It's available in all the supermarkets around here.

I am not sure you can plagiarize wikopedia. I got some of it from wiki sommelier. It was so funny I couldn't resist.

It just so happens that I have 4 THICK slices of bologna that I am going to use to make WV hot bologna sandwiches for supper tonight:
I cut 3 small slits on the bologna, add to a skillet, brown quickly on bpth sides,turn down the heat & cook through.  Remove from pan & make a hot/sweet BBQ sauce in the same skillet: catsup, brown sugar, lemon juice, lots of cayanne & sriracha sauce,bring to boil, reduce, then lower heat,add fried bologna & cook un til covered & glazed.  I serve on a big toasted bun with onion,lettuce & fresh tomato, pickle on the side.
