Yeah I think it's tough I mean, the quality is definitely meh.. They've let it slip for sure, although I will say that Taste of Newark is still decent (gyros and Hobby's-style sandwiches were good this past season) plus the small stand in the Goal Bar typically has rotating specials from the chef.. I think their big issue is that a lot of people do eat outside the arena so it's almost becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy that less people eat inside, so they let quality slip, so people are less likely to enjoy the food inside and want to eat it again, so they let quality slip, etc, etc.. Overall though the food is too greasy
Here are my places I've deemed good:
- Goal Bar stand
- Gyro Zone
- Fake Hobby's
- Fake Jimmie Buff's (though greasy as a moro if you can handle it)
- The salad stand (over by Goal Bar)
- Glatt-Kosher food stand (because it literally has to be better quality)
- Any Premio stand
- The occasional carving stand
The burger stands suck.. Not a fan of the cheesesteaks.. Pizza typically sucks although the spinach stromboli ain't bad.. Am I missing any others? It's funny that I listed so many stands that are decent, but in reality, many of them are stand-alones only found at 1 spot in the Rock
I think it's also a matter of the food being a lot better than at CAA.. Man, that was some SH!T food.. It tasted like they stocked up on frozen crap during the 80's and just kept pulling from that same freezer.. Maybe becoming accustomed to the Rock, coupled with other venues in the area beefing up their offering, has made the Rock seem like it's gotten worse?
