Good Italian Delis in Seattle Area

I would welcome recommendations of any good Italian delis in the Seattle area. North of downtown preferred, but anywhere is fine.

Edmonds Restaurant for Birthday (That Is Open on Mondays)

I'm hoping you can provide recommendations for an Edmonds restaurant - other than Arnie's and Anthony's - to celebrate a 55th birthday. It must be open on Mondays.

Great Garlic Bread in Seattle Area?

I'm looking for recommendations for great garlic bread in and around the Seattle area - closer to Lynnwood would be great, but not required. I'm not looking for cheese bread - though some parmesean cheese sprinkled on the bread is fine - nor am I looking for breadsticks. Any suggestions?

Good Burger in Bloomington, Indiana?

I'm looking for recommendations on where to get a good burger in the Bloomington, IN area (or in between Bloomington and Indianaplis). I'm familiar with Five Guys and Steak 'n Shake, so I'm seeking a recommendation for something different.

Good Lunch Places Within Walking Distance of the Anaheim Convention Center?

Any suggestions on where to go for good lunches within walking distance of the Anaheim Convention Center? It doesn't have to be fancy...in fact, I'd prefer that it isn't. Preferably something that is not a national chain.

Any Good Spaghetti Within Walking Distance of Disneyland?

The title pretty much says it all. Sometimes I'm not seeking a fancy, upscale Italian restaurant, but rather one that serves heaping plates of spaghetti with a rich, savory meat sauce. Anything within walking distance to Disneyland?

Best Non-Gourmet Burger On or Around the Strip (Ignoring In-N-Out)

There's a long thread about what is the best gourmet burger in Las Vegas. I'm curious, instead, about the best non-gourmet burger on our within walking distance of the Strip. I'm not looking to pay $20 for a burger...just something tasty that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I'm excluding In-N-Out because I'm very familiar with their burgers.

Indianapolis - Best Burger

I totally agree about 96th Street Steakburgers being overrated. The have decent fries, but the burgers are very subpar. Thanks for the tip on Scotty's Lakehouse.

Las Vegas Hot Dog & Burger Recommendations

I'm traveling to Las Vegas and would like to try out some local burgers and hot dogs. I will not have a car, so recommendations will have to be limited to the Strip and areas that are immediately adjacent to the monorail. My preference is for burger and hot dog joints, not upscale restaurants. However, any and all recommendations would be appreciated.

Good Downtown Hot Dog?

Is there anywhere downtown where someone can get a good hot dog at lunch? I know this is a longshot as Seattle, in general, isn't much of a hot dog town. I'm looking in the area of about Westlake Center to the north to Columbia Tower to the south. Any recommendations?

Indianapolis - Best Burger

I'm traveling to Indianapolis and would appreciate suggestions for a good burger. My preference is to not go to a fancy restaurant, being partial to burger stands. I've been to Workingman Friend's Tavern and was not impressed. How is Bub's Burgers?

Indianapolis - Chicago-Style Italian Beef Sandwich

I'm looking for a Chicago-style Italian beef standwich, similar to what you'd get at Portillo's in Chicago or Merrillville. Is there such a place in the Indianapolis area? If so, I'd appreciate any recommendations.

Anyone in Seattle familiar with Domenico's Pizza in Belmont Shore (Long Beach), California?

They make a killer sausage pizza in which the sausage is not applied in clumps as is normally the case, but is ground and spread over the entire pizza. If you know of a sausage pizza in the Seattle area that is similar, I'd love to hear from you.

Anyone in Seattle familiar with Original Joe's in San Jose, California?

If you are, I'm looking for a restaurant in the Seattle area that serves spaghetti that is reminiscent of Original Joe's...with a red sauce in which meat and mushrooms are prominent.

Good Bowl of Chili in the Seattle Area (Preferably North of Downtown Seattle)?

My needs are simple. A good bowl of chili with beans. I want it to be made with hamburger, not steak, not turkey, or other meat. With kidney or pinto beans. Quality and quantity would be good. A big bowl on a cold, winter night would do nicely. Recommendations?
