Even dead fish at the Rock is probably better than the food from the old CAA

I forgot where it is located but I would recommend the LA Okie Dog. It was awesome and I can't wait to get it again, it can be a little messy though.

Top Dog is on the main concourse, I think near sections 1 and 22. I wanted to try that Oki Dog thing the other day but they didn't have the pastrami for it, so I got a Texas Dog (chili, jalapenos, bacon, chopped onions). Tasted real good, but was pretty small. The Oki Dog looked big but this was just the size of a regular hot dog and was the same price. I finished it by the time I got back to my seat.

very disappointed with Jimmy buffs
got the double-was expecting two big juicy dogs
instead got a very large doughy roll
filled with fried potatoes (yuck)
and two pencil sized dogs for $8

now I know why they wrap them
I couldn't see what I was buying
my bad for not doing better research

as my bro said-we should have
hung out by the condiments to see what looked the best

when I hear double hot dog I think MEAT not fried potatoes :angry:

I went to the Rangers-Devils game at the Rock and thought the food service was so SLOW on the upper concourse. The lines were 12-15 people deep in between periods -- I know, maybe a bad time to go, but still, they only served about three people on each line before the next period started. I finally gave up and ran downstairs to the main concourse and grabbed a beer. That line moved a little quicker.

That is what an Italian Hot dog is all about - the potatoes - onions, peppers and dogs....

And that doughy roll is Pizza Bread, the traditional bread use for an Italian Hot do also called a Newark Dog in some circles.

I don't think it's a Newark thing. Any place I've seen Italian Hot Dogs they've always been similar to that.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Tried the Jimmy Buff's Double Italian Hot Dog tonight. Yum! My wife had the turkey sandwich and enjoyed that too!

Next time I wanna try the pastrami sandwich, and then maybe the Nachos with Chili.

Go Devils.

Where do they have the pulled pork sandwiches, my wife wants to know. And I guess I'd be interested in trying the zeppolis, if I knew where they had those.

The Devils gotta distribute a map of the food stands!

The bbq stands are in the lower concourse. There are two bbq stands. Basically they're the little push carts. I think it's JT's BBQ (?). The pulled pork is AWESOME. The pork is amazing and on a fresh roll. I love it. There is also a cart in the goal bar so it's nice to go up there before the game when everyone's allowed up there. Pick one up and find a table to sit at and eat it. My friend got the brisket and said it was unbelievable.

The zeppoles are my favorite thing there. They're in the lower concourse at the Boardwalk Cheesesteak and Lemonade stand behind the goal where the Devils shoot once. It's $4 for a bag of 6 and they're better than carnival ones. They're the size of baseballs and not as greasy. Simply amazing. That stand also has funnel cake.

My mom works in Newark and said many of her coworkers talk about the turkey sandwiches at Hobby's often. She almost got one last night and she never orders food at events. She said next week she will go to Hobbys during her lunch break since she didnt get one at the game.

That stand also has funnel cake.



OMG did someone say funnel cake....
I really havent walked around much at the games... but if I knew there was funnel cake Id have been there already!

I had the corned beef, I think, it was either that or pastrami, at Hobbys and it was of course expensive but it was good.
