McRib hack montage

So McRib is back and I got excited. I mean, it’s the McRib . . . the only sandwich at McDonald’s thats as McDonalds as the freaking Big Mac. Now it has been more than a minute since I have had one and I just couldn’t eat a McRib and post about it.

I had to make it better.

So here it is, My McRib hack, which I swear to whatever higher power you believe in, is worth the minimal time to make. Take my advice and find yourself a local Carniceria/Mexican Grocery store for all the ingredients listed futher down. And fasten your seatbelts, because this McRib is gonna take you south of the border.

Watch out for the Weiner Wagon!!

The Vitals:
the spot: Red Rocket Weiner Wagon a pop up in Austin TX
the eats: Serious Hot Dogs
the bucks: $10.50 for the classic, $13.50 with brisket chili
the full nelson: Craft BBQ queens elevate a hot dog from stadium food after thought to premium tailgate food

Red Rocket Dogs just might be the breakthrough the hot dog world needs. Changing the game on what a premium hot dog experience means, much like the chef driven burger of the early 2000s, this is a hot dog I would gladly drop over $10 for. And finally, I can agree with that controversial debate on Twitter that a hot dog is a sandwich.

Because this one totally is.

the spot: Antonella’s Italian Kitchen 841 Conestoga road Bryn Mawr, PA 19010
the eats: Meatball Hoagie
the bucks: $9
the full nelson: when your meatball fix needs a double shot of gluttony 

Antonella’s Italian Kitchen is proof that the suburbs of Philadelphia can churn out a legit hoagie. Sure, some people might not think getting a Meatball sub is that hard. They probably have never had a real hoagie. Or a grinder. Yes, they all mean the same thing but when you are in a part of the country that will passionately correct you on the proper nomenclature of a giant meatball sandwich, you are certain you are going to eat a very, very good, giant meatball sandwich.

the eats: Sopresatta Special, build your own combo(the Ali)
the bucks: $8-$12
the full nelson: my fav Italian American deli on the South Jersey Shore

I’ve been coming to Giovanni’s Deli for the last 5 summers, pretty much every time I’m down at the Jersey Shore. I have my in-laws, who hail from the Philly area, to thank for making me a Giovanni’s Deli regular. This is a deli that just feels like home. A home away from home built on cured meats and killer hoagie rolls. Now let’s talk about what you need to order . . .
