Thread Name: New Jersey State Song
Subject: RE: BS: New Jersey State Song
I don't pretend to be a native, I did live in South Jersey (Medford, and Berlin) for a little over 3 years. Wawa's is one thing I miss terrible, as my girth can attest. And I only ever heard, in that area, them referred to as hoagies. When I would say "sub" (which is what we would call them in Michigan) I would at least get a look like I had a tail, and at worst get a "you're not from around here, areya, honey?".

As to Philly cheese steaks, all the publicity goes to Pat's or Geno's, but for my money (and most of the locals I know) the best steak in Philly is Tony Luc's. And for those of you not from the area, be warned. When ordering, don't tell 'em you want a cheese steak. The already know that. Just let em know "wit or wit'out" for onions, and what kind of cheese. Whiz, provo, or mozz.

Oh, yeah ...... is there anyplace on earth where you can get a better white pizza w/seafood than South Jersey?

All the best,

Mick
