Cheap Eats Ann Arbor

Cheap Eats, Midwest By August 27, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

Michigan is fast becoming a fav state to visit and Cheap Eats Ann Arbor may have been the icing on the cupcake. After getting wowed back in 2016 when Cheap Eats visited Grand Rapids and then experiencing the revitalization of Motor City a year later when Cheap Eats visited Detroit, I have been riding high on a wave of solid Michigan eats for a couple years now. Enter Cheap Eats Ann Arbor, Michigan’s answer to college town eats and let me tell you . . . if this is what college kids eat these days, call me Rodney Dangerfield and send me Back to School, cuz up and down the Cheap Eats in Ann Arbor are really just Good Eats . . . minus the Alton Brown of course. So buckle up, Go Blue(even if you’re a Buckeye fan) and take another bite out of Cheap Eats Ann Arbor!

Cheap Eats Savannah

Cheap Eats, The South By August 20, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

One look at that low country boil I scored for dinner in Cheap Eats Savannah reminds me of two things: Savannah Seafood Shack offers up a steal when it comes to the pricey world of seafood and my Cheap Eats Savannah escapades did not come so easy, cheap eaters. Savannah reminds me of Charleston in more than ways than one. It’s a gorgeous town that’s a postcard for the Antebellum South. The hanging moss and stately abodes make you daydream about purchasing a second home here. And as far as food goes, there are more than a few options for the foodie’s bucket list. While I was here, I slipped into Sean Brock’s Husk, Cotton and Rye, and Collins Quarter; all of which make for splurge worthy meals but splurges nonetheless. Add to the fact that tourist friendly towns like Savannah are loaded with tourist trap restaurants and you best pick your Cheap Eats wisely my friends. And with that, let’s take another big bite out of Cheap Eats Savannah!

Cheap Eats ~ St. Petersburg

Cheap Eats, The South By August 13, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

If I had to describe Cheap Eats St. Petersburg in just one word it would be this: surprising. Outside of Miami(where we did an episode of Cheap Eats in Season One) and a summer family trip to Destin in my tender Wonder Years, my knowledge of Florida eats is pretty darn minimal. Take away the heavy Cuban and Caribbean culinary influence in Miami and one might correctly assume that Southern fare becomes a big part of the edible mosaic. But Florida is also part of the East Coast and snowbirds who take refuge down here like to bring their eats with them. This is exactly the case of the aptly named Brooklyn South, our spot for lunch in Cheap Eats St. Petersburg. With that kind of back and forth between major cosmopolitan cities of the Northeast to the sunny environs of FLA, the idea of a legit crêperie doesn’t seem that surprising nor does a swanky dessert themed bar. Add a plate of duck confit quesadilla and I’m sure you would find Cheap Eats St. Petersburg just as surprising as I did. Well seeing is believing, and seeing it twice will make you rethink just which side of Florida you will trek to next and so let’s take one more bite out of Cheap Eats St. Petersburg!

John’s Roast Pork ~ Philadelphia

Cheap Eats, East Coast By August 1, 2018 Tags: , , , No Comments

The Vitals:
the spot: John’s Roast Pork 14 E. Snyder Ave Philadelphia PA 19148
the eats: cheesesteak, roast pork
the bucks: $9.25, $8.75 respectively
the full nelson: after you have tried the greatness of the Roast Pork, it’s time to take on the Cheesesteak

If you caught the Philadelphia episode of Cheap Eats then no doubt you know about the greatness of John’s Roast Pork and their Roast Pork sandwich, THE sandwich of Philadelphia. Yeah, cheesesteaks get all the credit, but the Roast Pork sandwich is as Philly as the original Rocky. That being said, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get your fill of a good cheesesteak and at John’s Roast Pork, you certainly will find one of the best cheesesteaks in Philadelphia.

The Cheap Eats in Scottsdale were definitely a surprise. From a sugar bomb of a ice cream sandwich, to pulled pork for breakfast, the affluent extension of Phoenix likes to have some cheap eats options for the Snowbird set it seems. How far did my $35 stretch in the Spa capital of US? Let’s take big second bite and find out!

Cheap Eats ~ New Haven

Cheap Eats, East Coast By June 27, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

Home to the most OG burger spot in the world and sporting a pizza style that makes New Yorkers swoon, I would move to New Haven out of foodie principles if I could handle the cold and had the GPA to live that close to Yale University. But since it makes for a the perfect pit stop in between NYC and Boston, I know I will be back. And pizza is just the tip of the Cheap Eats iceberg. So with that let’s take a big second bite of Cheap Eats New Haven!
