 Jeepers Joe!
 Will you please stop torturing me!?  Meat - bread - hot peppers.  My favorite. 
  Now, please go to Sharkey's in Binghamton for a full report on Spiedies... I enjoy being tortured. 

 
Be careful what you ask for...

 

 
Mmmmmm, I never thought about adding hot peppers to my spiedie

      Mmmmm, grilled lamb.  I don't know where I could find that around here.

      I'm sure you could find Grilled Goat!

        Spiedies??? You threw me for a loop there so I had to look it up. Read the History. I love to research food history. Got this Recipe. Does it sound right?
        Spiedie Sandwich Recipe - How To Make A Spiedie Sandwich

        Recipe Type: Sandwich, Beef, Wraps
        Yields: 6 servings
        Prep time: 20 min
        Cook time: 8 min

        Ingredients:

        2 pounds meat (chicken, lamb, pork or beef), cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes*
        1 cup extra-virgin
        olive oil
        1/4 cup freshly-squeezed
        lemon juice
        3/4 cup red wine vinegar
        2 tablespoons granulated sugar
        4 cloves garlic, minced
        1 bay leaf
        1/4 teaspoon red (cayenne) pepper
        1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
        1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
        1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
        1/2 teaspoon salt
        1/2 teaspoon coarsely-ground pepper
        1 loaf Italian or French bread, thickly sliced
        Metal Skewers

        * Use boneless and skinless chicken breasts, pork tenderloin, top round steak, or leg of lamb.


        Preparation:

        In a large bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, and sugar. Add garlic, bay leaf, red pepper, thyme, basil, oregano, salt and pepper; stir until well blended.

        Place prepared meat in a large resealable plastic bag set into a shallow dish. Pour marinade mixture over meat and close bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for a least 24 hours and up to 3 days; turn bag occasionally to distribute marinade. Remove meat from refrigerator and let stand in marinade at room temperature for 2 hour; drain, reserving marinade.

        Preheat barbecue grill. Thread 4 to 5 cubes of meat onto each metal skewer. Place onto hot grill and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until done to your preference, basting with reserved marinade. Remove from grill and serve immediately.

        To serve, fold the bread over the contents of the skewer and pull the skewer out, leaving the meat sandwiched within the bread.

        Makes 6 servings.

          Foodbme, That looks about right.  Or just look for a bottle of this or this.  
           
          Or better yet, jump in your car, drive to Binghamton, NY. and do a Spiedie Tour

            It's about 6000 miles Round Trip or about $900.00 for gas + Food + Motels. I think I'll try mail order! THANX! for the links.

              I tried Kelly's Roast Beef for the first time.  Chris recommended the one in Saugus, but the Danvers location was only two miles from my hotel.  The place looks brand new, sort of like an Appleby's/Bennigan's Hybird.
               
              The beef was very good, but not as good as Nick's.  

               
              I was very disappointed with my clam platter.  The clams were pretty flavorless, missing that sweet and briny flavor I expected.  I am sure they came from a food service company, processed, instead of fresh.  And the onion rings were atrocious, not even edible.  Typical frozen, food service junk, overcooked till they were rock solid by the teenage chef.  I saw an order of fries, and they didn't look any better.  Definitely reminded me of chewingthefat's thread on french fries.
               

               
              I see what Kelly's did here....because I have seen it so many times before.  They have dumbed down their operation so teenage kids can run the show.  A shame.  
               
              Their food came off as cheap, but not the bill.
               

               
              I don't know about the other locations, but my guess, they are all going to be as "dumb" as the Danvers location.

                Wow, that is a shame, Joe. For the price you paid for the clams, they should be better than you described. And the picture even shows that the onion rings werent good.Ouch!

                  Now, here is another RF place that opened several locations, Frankie's Hot Dogs.  I have only been to the location at 700 Watertown Ave in Waterbury, which I believe is the original location.  But the food is always outrageously good.
                   
                  Todays lunch was(please do not go any further Michael Hoffman)a perfectly prepared, fresh soft shell crab and a proper lobster roll.  
                   

                   
                  Worth every penny of the 31 bucks I paid, including a bottle of water.  Everything was prepared fresh when I ordered it, the way it should be.  The lobster was so sweet, it was like candy.  And the soft shell was perfectly cleaned and prepared.  The flavor was delicious.
                   
                  I think I will make an effort to try some of the other locations, just to see if they are just as good.  Heck, they even have a location in Tampa.  I will have to alert The Ancient Mariner!

                    SIGH.
                    I've said it before and I'll say it one last time... I do not AT ALL understand what people see in Kelly's. IMO it is beyond over-hyped. Last time I tried a roast beef from there (Revere Beach) I swore NEVER again. Awful bland and cold bun, sauce okay but beef not good at all. Yuck yuck and yuck. I didn't finish it, in fact only ate a few bites.
                     
                    Nick's is FAR better. (As is my secret place... but it's till pretty much secret.)
                     
                    Been to see my hot dog man in Wakefield off I-95/128 lately?! Mmmmm I miss him (or mostly his hot dogs actually).  But I can look at him from above when I want...

                        Isn't it terrible how expensive water is these days?

                          cecif, Zoom in close.  That's me standing in line for a 1/4 pounder!   
                           
                          agnesrob, I love soft shells and I am going to try doing them at home....if I can find them.  I hope they come out as good as yours.
