I tried that LA Oki Dog thing last night, it was pretty good but I didn't think it was that amazing. All I really tasted was the chili and the hot dogs.

They should open up a stand that sells fat sandwiches, grease trucks style.

OMG! I found true food heaven at the Rock yesterday. I finally had the Hot Pastrami sandwich from the Hobby's Deli stand. Phenomenal! Though I wasn't happy with the $12 tab, it was still extremely delicious. You also get a bag of chips, a small cole slaw, and a nice pickel. Good, good stuff!

I had NO interest in eating those hotdogs. IMO, they smelled nasty and wouldnt buy them if they were .50 cents.

The chicken fingers look OK, but not for 8 dollars.


I will stick with beer, after all beer is food right?

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.

Ya my hot dog was fine.

The cheese with the nachos is different this year... it used to have more spiciness to it, so I was a little bummed when i had the nachos and cheese. I liked the old cheese better! I dont get the other stuff on the nachos so having the spicy flavor in the cheese was good for me. Oh well! Ya win some ya lose some :)

The chicken fingers really aren't that great at all.

I had a cheeseburger last time I went and I enjoyed it, but that may be because I was absolutely starving.

I want to try the panini sandwiches and also the sushi (though I have my doubts about the sushi)

A friend of mine tried the sushi and wasn't impressed. I've had the panini twice, which should speak to how good it is, since I'm trying to avoid repeats until I've tried everything that interests me. So far the only two I've broken that personal rule for was the panini and Jimmy Buff's Italian hot dogs.

Got the hot corned beef sammich at Hobby's last night. While $12 is a little steep, the sandwich was bangin! It was really plain, just corned beef on rye, but the corned beef was so excellent that it didn't need anything else. You also get a pickle, a bag of chips, and a small side of coleslaw. If they sold it for $8 or $9, it would be perfect. But it was really good nonetheless.
