Pastrami Burger at Crown Burgers


Piles of pastrami on top of a hamburger is the way they make burgers at Crown Burgers in Salt Lake City, Utah.



The burger at Crown Burgers has thinly-sliced grilled pastrami on a charbroiled hamburger patty. The pastrami is lean and grilled nicely. And there's lots of it as you can see in these pictures. This is a very meaty and tasty burger.


There's plenty of fry sauce (ketchup, mayo, and relish) to dip your french fries into.

I first saw Crown Burgers on Man Vs. Food with Adam Richman on The Travel Channel.

Concrete at Ted Drewes Frozen Custard

The Concrete at Ted Drewes is too thick to drip
A St. Louis tradition since 1929, Ted Drewes serves frozen custard in many flavors. Custard is different from ice cream because it has a lot less air so it's thicker and creamier. It also has less butterfat than ice cream, but you would never know since custard tastes creamier than ice cream.

You can get the frozen custard in a sundae, but I got the concrete which is Ted Drewes' custard made into a milkshake. I got cookie dough which was full of lots of cookie dough chunks.




Don't be put off by the long line, because there are many windows and they keep things moving. I was there on a rainy day and even then it was crowded! This is a popular place.

Ted Drewes is located on Historic Route 66
Ted Drewes reminds me of the frozen custard at Caliche's in Las Cruces. Both are creamy and delicious, and both places have a huge menu to pick from.

I found Ted Drewes in 500 Things to Eat Before It's Too Late: and the Very Best Places to Eat Them which is one of my go-to foodie books. You can buy it on Amazon (and I highly recommend it):

Pork Italian at Tony Luke's


Tony Luke's has been seen on a lot of TV food shows, such as Man Vs. Food, Food Feuds, Food Wars, and Throwdown with Bobby Flay. So I figured the sandwiches would be good, and they sure are! Read my full review of Tony Luke's Old Philly Style sandwiches in Philadelphia after the break.

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.

Beef Ribs at Buz and Ned's Real Barbecue

My problem with takeout is smelling it in the car all the way home, or as happened today, on the way to my hotel. Except that my hotel was three hours away and by the time I arrived, I was ready for an early dinner. No amount of tying up the bag kept the aroma of smoky ribs away from me. So how were they?
