Fried Whiting every frigging Friday all year round here in the Chuck growing up, like it or not. Every single luncheonette and restaurant counter served that.
^^ I guess if you MUST eat the sandwich, takeout is the way to go, unless you enjoy over paying for 12oz beers.... However, $12 for just a mediocre sandwich is not worth it either way.
Lesson for today - do not use the word sammie, this is ok with the toddler crowd you hang with at home but adults get bothered by it. Even when used by the restaurant in question. Also 7541 is right, dreadful service at Leon's lately. Here is the best way to do the chicken "Sammie" - 1. Pick up phone. 2 Dial Leon's. 3- Place Order 4- Pick up 5- eat. Prob way easier.
I second the point made that Jim's on South Street in Philly has the best cheesesteaks.
Congratulations Sean Brock on another fabulous menu. Love how you always incorporate old into new. It understanding food that makes you unique and your foodie followers satisfied and astounded at the flavors. Can't wait for the experience 🍾 Cheers
You know what? Slavery will never happen again. Let's just get that out of the way. No president or presidential wanna be will even touch that subject. Why? Because said candidate will be considered a complete and udder joke. Not just here in the United States, but in the eyes of the World. Next, those words that are on the statue of liberty hahaha. France might as well come back and take it back. Do you think the American people would actually let that B.S happen, no way. For every 1 racist , there are hundreds who oppose it. You think there's protest now. Nah pal, those are just parades compared to what will happen then. There's going to basically be bloodbaths in the streets. Next, who do you think would actually enforce that? The military or the Police, that's a non issue. The military already said that they would go against Trump ,and besides you really think that the U.S. armed forces will let anyone fuck with their soldiers and sailors and pilots, ha military coup. The United States will become a joke in the eyes of the World. The human rights commission will beall over this one. So for those who are too lazy or fat to do their own shit and want a slave to do it, get a fucking life. Oh and as far as the whole welfare thing, you are really dumb. First of all the foodstamp program is the single biggest consumer of the American farmer, do you think the food stamp program would even still be here if it was mainly blacks using it? According to the United States Department of Agriculture (the agency who runs the program) 2014 stats are as follows, 40.2 percent are white , 25.7 percent black , 10.3 percent hispanic ,2.1 percent asian , 1.2 percent native american. Those are the facts jack. Get over that.
Tupper, thanks for the apology. I do disagree with LGBT, however, I try not to make personal attacks. Too many side with you on the issue for me to believe I am the only person who is correct. I have an opinion on the topic, nothing more.
I, too, was filled with impotent rage about the use of the word "Sammie," until realizing that its capitalization indicated that it was the proper name, that is from Leon's shop itself. And then I realized that I just passed a sandwich board for a different place on my morning walk that also used "Sammie" because god dammit.
Also the 12-hour+ prep time doesn't fall under "easier than you think" in my book, but doing things right often takes significant preparation.
Deb, Leon's calls it their chicken sandwich http://leonsoystershop.com/wp-content/uplo…. I called it a sammie because nothing goes better with fried chicken than a little word rage. Mmm mm.
Keep marching to your own beat Quintin. Great work as always!
^^well, they've also got fake vintage junk all over the walls, small portions, over-priced everything, and poor service. Don't think I'd call it "serious."
Why would a serious restaurant resort to "Rachel Ray baby talk" by calling a sandwich a "Sammie"?
I thought crabcake with green tomatoes was our signature. Seems like every restaurant in town has some variation of it on the menu.
How much does this restaurant group pay the paper to constantly talk about them? In a city with such great restaurants, these ones are ruining it.
Honestly, have you not heard of the 'fish sandwich'? You know, 2 fillets of fried whiting on white bread? Usually w/ lettuce and tomato? Served at seafood counters that have a fryer or quick soul food joints?
Love this story on Quintin - he is a special person who loves his life. Charleston is lucky to have him.
Metal detecting is a good hobby i think
Convenient location from our apartment, and we heard from a friend they serve $5 burgers on Tuesday nights so we went up to check it out. The place has definitely been smoker-friendly in the recent past, so you might notice your clothes have a stale smoke smell when you leave. However, the burgers were really tasty, and there are several great beers on tap, plus what looks like a well stocked liquor supply. They also have trivia on Tuesday, as we learned once we arrived, and it's free to play! Prizes are bar cash. Overall a good neighborhood spot and a very tasty $5 burger. We'll be back!
Yeah, but will there be bourbon? :)
