Don't forget to put lots of ketchup on those dogs (or bratwursts)!
I lived in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area for a couple years, tons of polish and Pennsylvania dutch. Yes, Scranton as in the location for The Office. So many good references to that area within that show which made it even better having lived there.

My God those perogies were so good, there were stand alone restaurants dedicated to them. My favorite was a place called Mom's Perogies in Wilkes-Barre they served them sitting in drawn butter with chopped onions.

The pizza in that little area was unique too. They made it with a swirl of sauce then a swirl of cheese and so on. I wasn't all that impressed, NY style is way better but to each their own.

We have a Chicago deli here, the Vienna beef hotdogs are killer, unfortunately no pizza tho. I'd love to take a trip up there just to experience all the good food.

Even the frozen perogies that come out of the area are not bad. Mrs. T's, the best frozen perogie on the market, is made in the area. Of course nothing like fresh, but not bad.

For Pizza in the Scranton area, you really have to get out of Scranton proper and go to Old Forge. They even have their official style of pizza, Old Forge style pizza. Rectangular, cut into squares, with each shop having their own closley guarded secret blend of cheeses. Pretty good stuff, Revello's, IMO, having the best. Many Old Forge style pizza shops have deep roots in Old Forge, being in business 50 or more years.

I wouldn't say Old Forge pizza tops the best Chicago deep dish or NYC style pizza I've had, but it comes close to equaling it.

I'll probably be run out of town and tarred and feathered-(again) for this, but I never cared for deep dish pizza. I mean, calling it "pizza" is kinda a stretch in relation to what the rest of the world- and Chicago- thinks of as pizza- which is thin crust. It's more of a pie really.

I'll even put ketchup on a hot dog- if I want to! I'm a rebel, I guess.

I agree. A pizza shouldn't be served as a loaf.

Before declaring Mrs. T's the best try some Kasia's, made in Chi-town, you won't be disappointed.

Never heard of or tried them...I do hope to find them locally. I'll try to hunt them down. The mission begins tomorrow!

You know up until seven years ago I lived my entire life with a 45min from Old Forge and never once had their pizza. I always heard it was amazing but just never went. Next time I'm up that way I'll make it a point to stop and get some.

someone at some time made up dinosaur sounds without ever having heard a dinosaur, and I have problems with that.

Nardone's pizza has been made in Wilkes-Barre for a long time. Forever , I think. It is a commercial product, sold in many NE grocery stores and they do a large amount of institutional business. I think they at one time supplied every school district within a 100 mile radius radius of Wilkes-Barre with pizza. Fridays was always Nardone pizza day in my school district. May still be the case, I'm not certain. Nardone's is a sheet pizza cut in squares like Old Forge pizza, and I'm fairly certain they must have originally chose that square cut pattern as a shout out to Old Forge pizza. Any similarity between Nardone's and Old Forge pizza ends at the shape of the cuts, although I occasionaly buy a box of Nardone's to relive my high school cafeteria days.

I could always picture the Nardone's salesman going around to the various school districts and saying "I've got a pizza offer you just can't refuse".

I hear you sell pizza....

Yes! We had Nardones pizza every Friday in school, so good. Where in PA are you?

I grew up in Brodheadsville which is basically 30-45mins from the Leigh Valley, Stroudsburg area, Leighton, and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The town itself basically has nothing going on with the biggest employer being Pleasant Valley school district. It is however in a good location with a ton of stuff in every direction.
