Dominic’s Tavern

Dominics

“Suggest a Joint” has hit again, and this time with a vengeance as my inbox was flooded with emails telling me that I needed to get down to Dominic’s Tavern in Bellmawr. And when a suggestion comes in (or in this case a multitude of suggestions from Dan, Michele, Marty, and Mark to name a few), I make sure I answer that call. So I grabbed some friends and headed down to Dominic’s to try them out for myself.

We got down there on a Friday night and the place was packed. Everyone was having a great time around the bar, and the people seated in the dining area were all involved (read more…)

Dadz Bar & Grill

dadz

In Burlington County, there are a number of places that claim to have the best wings, and one of them is known as Dadz Bar & Grill. Located on the corner of Main and Rt. 38, this bar gets a lot of exposure and I’m sure it gets packed during the night time hours. With Pong tournaments, a pool table, and Happy Hour 50¢ wings, how can you not see a crowd coming? On Tuesdays they have all you can eat wings for under $10, and it lasts for 12 hours. So if you have nowhere else to be with a good pocket of beer-cash, you can have a great day. But unfortunately for me, it is not Tuesday (read more…)

Quaker Steak & Lube

QuakerSteak

Quaker Steak & Lube is a chain restaurant that started in the seventies as an effort to preserve the look and feel of old style gas stations and muscle cars. They do this so diligently by having old hot rods lifted above the dining room along with Harleys spinning from the ceiling. But the only way to enjoy these pleasures is to get inside. This proved rather difficult for me seeing how Quaker Steak & Lube restaurants are sprinkled around the country and hadn’t made it’s way to New Jersey….yet. So you can imagine my excitement when word hit the street that one was opening up (read more…)

Canal Street Pub

canalstreetpub

Once again I found myself in Reading, PA looking for a new place to grab some wings. This time while in the west side of town, I decided to try out a place called the Canal Street Pub. From the outside, the building looked humongous and gave the illusion of a grandiose bar with multiple levels. But don’t be fooled, upstairs is actually a Khaki store and the bar resides only on the main level. It is still quite large and has a couple of rooms, though I found myself staying right in the main bar area because of its nice laid back feel. I grabbed a beer, picked up the Pub Menu and (read more…)

McGlynns Pub

McGlynns2

Down in Dover, DE it is near impossible to find a great wing joint. According to my Delawarian friend Doug, this is a deadspot for great food, and anyone else I asked kept returning the same reply: Buffalo Wild Wings or Wings-To-Go. When I venture out, I want to find that hidden gem that only locals know about, not a chain that I have had plenty of times before. So I dove as deep as I could into Google and Yelp, rolled the dice, and came up with McGlynns Pub as my lunch spot for the day.

At first glance, I thought I had the wrong address (read more…)
