Had lunch at the Drum-Stik-BBQ today

Now, fer anyone who doesn't know Bridgeport or southwestern Connecticut, that just may seem like a silly way to spend the afternoon.

Then again, most people don't live in Bridgeport, or even southwestern Connecticut. Whatever. I had the most scrumptuous chicken swandwich and they even gave me too much ketchup for the fries.

Dam, that's good eatin'. The old haunts are still the best...

Good bbq is never a silly way to spend the afternoon. Never, ever.

How did you end up in the North End of Bpt., Spork? I love Drum-Stik-BBQ, although I've never actually had anything barbecued there. The fried chicken is what I dig. Blows the nearby KFC outta the water. And don't tell me you got a potato product other than the "JJ" potatoes?!?!? Yes, the old haunts are the best -- Merritt Canteen's hot dogs seem to have changed a bit, as the place appears to be under "new" management, but they're still pretty good. Do you remember Homa's in Seaside Park? Is it still there? Mmmmm . . . non-franchised fast food . . . .

I'm not far from the North End. I do my shopping at the Stop & Shop that's over where Dewhirst Dairy used to be, so I'm just a short drive from upper Main Street.

I didn't see "JJ" potatoes on the menu. They had mashed potatoes, fries, wedges, etc. Then again, a lot of what they have in on handwritten slabs of paper behind the counter. I'll look for it next time I'm there.

Tex also says that the Merrit Canteen isn't as good since it's come under new ownership. But I had a double cheeseburger there a few weeks ago that was awesome. Haven't had a hot dog there in years, though.

Did you know that the little office building that they built out of the old Bethany Church is gone? There's a Walgreen's there now. @#$%ing "progress"...

Oh, and Homa's was still there the last time I was at the beach. (At least, there was something there though I'm not certain it was still called Homa's.) But that was probably 9 or 10 years ago to watch the 4th of July fireworks.

I believe the "wedges" actually ARE what used to be JJs. They may have changed names when they changed ownership. As far as the Canteen goes, it is under new management. Mr Mac's Canteen in either Milford or Monroe is owned by Ray.
