Corleone's Tomato Pies, Hamilton

Wow, finally got around to picking up a large tomato pie there and let me say, we were not disappointed. It was excellent, even as take out which moste tom. pies don't hold up for. They describe their old fashioned pies as having sweet plum tomatoes, mozz and olive oil. The tomatoes (just the right amount) are true to that description, very sweet which pairs well with the salt in the cheese, and the thin crust, a little different than DeLorenzo's, I actually liked it better. To all tomato pie lovers, I definitely recommend giving it a try! I'm hooked.

Jade Palace near Mastori's?

Yah, Kenji is good, haven't been there for awhile, though. We recently got some nice takeout at China Garden (used to be Wing Wah) on Whitehorse next to Foley's across fm Kmart in Hamilton. The Generals Shrimp was fresh, cooked and seasoned perfectly. The lo mein was was delicious. Everyone liked the Mu Shu Pork but I've had better. Overall, impressive for a little whole in the wall takeout place for the area.

Good Jewish Deli in Mercer County area?

Unfortunately I can't seem to convince others that it's worth a 45 min drive....they don't seem to get it!

DaVinci's in Hamilton on Rte 33

It's in the building Tony Luke's was in I think. Award winning Philly style cheesesteaks, pizza, etc. A co-worker saw it and grabbed a menu. Anyone been?

Thanks, I know where that is--I'll give it a try. There's really no Katz's-type (nyc) delis in this area!

I would love to hear about it too. Looking at the website you can really see the amazing amount of refurbishing and work that went into it. I'm excited to try it.

I haven't been yet but I remember someone on here wrote not to bother? And haven't heard any other opinions since, so wasn't feeling in a rush to get there. Have you tried Joey's on Whitehorse next to KFC/LJS?

I still haven't gotten to Papas but am anxious to try it. Maruca's is great Jersey Shore pizza, I agree.

HeatherB, bad, but oh so good. We ran in and got some slices but then also spotted some pretty good looking ribs at the hot bar. Oh my, both were delicious but I think next time we'll call ahead and order a whole pizza to eat there. And maybe hit the salad bar to go with it.

That's great about the moving of the mugs (or glasses)....LOL...my father described a similar story but he had graduated aroung '55 I think --may have been a different place.

I've been to the one in Ewing a long while ago. Cheesesteaks are good and different than most. I'll have to try the Hamilton one. I've had a hankering for one for about a week now!

Yah, I agree, something besides coffee had to be aiding him! What was the big guy w/ baby sh--? I lived in the quad and the smell was torture...luckily Karl accepted checks.

I remember my father talking about the beer carrying thing at a bar in Dover which turned out to be this little dive bar that was still open and next to my apt on 3rd St.? Was it a small place?

I lived in Dover Jr and Sr year but I don't recall the Spartan. Where was it? There's also some stuff on Karl's on UNH alum site. I think he set up a booth at one of the homecoming games.

I graduated in '86. Fritz is Karl's brother--he must've run the truck before him? As for Newick's --it's still there. It was a stand when my Dad went to UNH as well. My roomies and I went to quite a few of those Lamba parties as Freshman and Sophs!

I didn't frequent the MUB Pub except for lunch (after I had moved off campus jr. yr). At night I did go see a Grateful Dead copy band once.

If I recall correctly they sold the Catnip my senior yr. It may have been called the Down Under before that. I'm not familiar w/ the laundramat cookie place --thank God Karl's was bad enough for my diet! EMC yes, the pizza w/ the cheese on top. My friend and I used to split the small broccoli, cheap and heavenly for us poor students. Anybody remember Bread N Butter store?

Wow, it's that bad, eh? We were just thinking around lunchtime to pick some ch steaks up but sounds like it might not be worth it? Any other suggestions for a great ch steak in Hamilton?
