Indian Taco at Tocabe


Is there such a thing at Native American fast food? There is in Denver at Tocabe, An American Indian Eatery.


The setup is similar to Chipotle: start at one end of the serving bar, and pick the base of your dish. Then slide over for the beans and meat, and slide over again for the salsa and other toppings.

I had fry bread, chicken, pinto beans, and hominy salsa on my Indian taco. This is really good!
Iko's Green Chili Stew is full of ground beef, sweet corn, green chiles. It's spicy and delicious.

Scrapple at The Dining Car and Market

The Dining Car and Market in Philadelphia
The Dining Car and Market in Philadelphia
The Dining Car and Market in Philadelphia is located in a shopping mall, but it looks like its from a different era. It was built by the Swingle Dines company and dropped at its current location. The hostess says its been there since the early 1980s although the restaurant itself is older than that. It's like walking into a 1940s dining car with silver and black and art deco everywhere. It's a lot of fun just going inside. There's plenty of seating, which is a good thing since it was very busy when I was there for an early lunch. The Dining Car also has a bakery.

I found The Dining Car and Market in the original Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives book which has been one of my go-to books during my cross-country road food trip from California --

Corned Beef and Beef at Chaps Pit Beef

I was planning on the original pit beef sandwich when I walked into Chaps Pit Beef, but when I saw the daily special of Corned Beef and Beef (and a bottomless soda), how could I resist it? After all, it clearly claims to have more beef than the original sandwich, right? Read my full review of Chaps Pit Beef in Baltimore after the break.

Stromboli at Four Kegs Sports Pub


I'm a few days into my cross-country trip and spent today in Las Vegas. Where else to eat but a TV foodie joint? I pulled out my books and found Four Kegs Sports Pub. It's off the strip so you'll need a car or take a taxi from the Strip. It's well worth the short drive.

Basque Breakfast Sliders at Pyrenees Cafe



I've been to many Basque restaurants for the family-style dinner where you sit at long tables with other diners, and so much food is brought to your table that you leave without being able to take another bite. But a Basque breakfast? What is that about? I had to find out so I went to Pyrenees Cafe in Bakersfield for breakfast.

The new season of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives features many restaurants in Bakersfield, California. (Guy also just opened a Johnny Garlic's there.) I've driven through Bakersfield many times but have never spent any time there, so when I found out Guy Fieri and his DDD crew were visiting several joints in Bakersfield, I had to get down there to see what the excitement was about. Are there more than oil derricks and citrus groves in Bakersfield?
