Please help a Canadian out with some good ATL take-out suggestions...eh?

The sandwiches at Star Provisions look wicked good. Do you have any opinion on Holy Taco, Victory Sandwiches or HD1?

'Fine dining' is used for a lack of better term. I'll be hitting Bacchanalia, Holeman and Finch Public House and Empire State South.

Thanks Rcburli, Nick's menu looks great. Are there any "must-try's" that you would suggest?

Thanks for the suggestion Carolinadawg. I have a car, and a good amount of free time, so I wasn't that worried about geography. I understand that Atlanta is huge, but if something catches my eye I don't driving a ways to get to it. I suppose I mentioned take out because in my city (Toronto) most of the best affordable food places do not have eat in service. But I would be willing to eat in if it fits the other criteria (inexpensive, super tasty.) So any suggestions would be helpful!

Hi Folks!

I'm a Canadian visiting Atlanta for 4 days, and I'm looking to explore any great take-out that the city has to offer. I've already booked my fine dining choices, so I'm looking to fill the meal gaps with some delicious, inexpensive food. The type of food isn't important: could be BBQ, pizza, sandwiches, burgers, any type of ethnic food etc... The key is to be affordable (under $15 a person) and super tasty. Thank a bunch for your help!

Fun and Food for an 11 hour O'Hare Layover!

Thanks a bunch Nsxtasy, so much to consider! I will be coming back from Mexico, which is why I have the layover, so I think I may skip the Mexican food, although Mexique had a great looking menu. The small plate thing is an interesting way to go as well, although something tells me I will be stuffing food in my bag for my flight back to Canada anyway, so a few extra slices of deep dish wouldn't hurt. Looks like I'm going to have to come back to Chicago for a legit vacation soon, so much good food.

Wow, thanks for the suggestions RMJ! Wicker Park sounds cool, and Big Star keeps coming up on my internet searches. Same with some place called Jay's Beef, also in Wicker Park, which I assume is an Italian beef joint? Love the idea of hitting a speakeasy-style joint too.

Fun and Food for an 11 hour O'Hare Layover!

Hi Everyone!

I have an 11 hour layover at O'Hare, arriving at 8pm and leaving the next morning at 7am. I feel like I have time to really hang out and eat in one neighborhood for the night, so I was looking for suggestions. I am looking to wander from one restaurant/bar to the next, drinking and eating the night away with a friendly crowd. Any thoughts on neighborhoods and corresponding food/drink? I'm in my late-twenties and on a little bit of a budget if that narrows anything down.

Thanks for all your help!

P.S. Is it true I have to eat Chicago hot dogs, beef dip sandwiches or deep dish pizza?

Best Crab Deals/specials in Baltimore

@MIlocat1, Thanks for the heads up, I was afraid this may have been the case.
@Kim2310, Thank you for the recommendations, I will give those places a ring for sure .

So for crabs around this time of year, what is a decent price to be paying per pound? And how many pounds would a hungry 190lbs guy like myself order? (hard question, I know, because of different peoples appetites.)

Best Crab Deals/specials in Baltimore

Hey Folks,

I will be in Baltimore for a conference at the end of March, 2012, and I wanted to try the famous Baltimore crabs. My problem is that I don't have a lot of spending money. Therefore, I was hoping that someone may have some leads on restaurants that have decently priced crabs, or restaurants that may have crab specials on certain nights. I understand that this means I wont be able to have the BEST crabs in the city, but decent crabs in better than no crabs at all. Any help would be really appreciated.
