 Hey, buffalo tarheel: I doubt there is any connection between Chick's Deli in Cherry Hill(since 1957) and the one in Hartford.......just my strong hunch...

    I guess we had a #90 steak with fried onions and added provolone and green peppers.  You can see from the photos that Sonny knows peppers.  This place was a real find.  No question that is the best looking hamburger sub or hoagie I've ever eaten.  I made Ellen stand at the window watching the grill man work for a few minutes after we finished our meal so she could see how the hamburgers were done.  I had a view from the booth; her back was to the grill.  The meat is scooped out of a pan kept in a refrigerated drawer with an ice cream scooper, dropped on the grill and then flattened and weighted.  Unfortunately in the time we watched from the window no one ordered hamburger.

    Later in the week I enjoyed a very good Italian Beef at FAT LOU'S on Hallandale Beach Blvd just east of 95.  Great green peppers here too.  This place is Chicago all the way.  Dozens of dogs on the menu, all done very nicely.  www.fatlous.com

    Also had an extremely good pizza at Anthony;s Coal Fired Pizza.

    And Ellen,  I think the garlic rolls at Primanti's are a good match for Mario's.

        Thanks Ellen.  I suspect your hunch is 100% accurate.  When I saw a reference to Chick's and another reference to Connecticut, I somehow merged them into Chick's being in Hartford, not Cherry Hill.  At least now I know where the good one is for any future NJ trips (and who knows, maybe the one in Hartford has something good to check out).  Thanks again.

          I've never had a Hogie and from the looks and descriptions they'll be on my list.

          Thanks for a great report, Ellen and Signman

          I love all of these reports!

          Keep them coming.
