Ahem..... Dude-- if you and I go to Nathens and order 4 hot dogs, 2 orders of fries, and 2 large drinks you know that costs over $40, right?

Let's save a lot of money and stick with Gene and Jude's. 

Or, like I said, Costco! Haha.

Yes, my wife is a sinner... loves her ketchup on her dogs!

I like the spicy brown "deli" mustard on mine usually! I also like to shake it up sometimes with sauerkraut or chili, maybe cheese and bacon... yum! 

You left out lots of relish....yum!

The absolute 2 best hot dogs are the ,"dirty water dogs" from the creepy guys' NYC street carts AND the ones in the store at Costco. They are huge, tasty and are still only $1.50 WITH a soda! OMG!!

Agreed! Love the unknown with those dirty water dogs! The gambler in me loves it... a little like Russian Roulette!

Yes, Costco's monster hot dogs and soda w/ refills for $1.50 is nice... they take the loss knowing you can't leave the warehouse spending less than $100!

It's funny, when family and friends visit from out of state, they all want pizza, bagels (most actually take some back!) and a meal at a diner during their visit. They also want Carvel soft-serve ice cream if they don't have one where they live! ☺️

 

And don't forget Italian bread! SIL in NC took back 6 loaves last time.

Image result for new york pizza

Rule of thumb - Don't even consider getting thin pizza in Chicago and don't even consider thick pizza in New York.

Stick with what each place does well and enjoy!

I was looking forward to trying "real" pizza next year in Italy, but we are only going to be in Venice and I've read it's not as authentic as say Naples because they do not allow wood burning ovens in Venice. It's some kind of law?

Correct , in Venice they are not allow open flame ovens just electric one , they want to avoid any fire risk inside the city. But outside the the city its allow so you can get a Pizza in  Venice Mistre.

Pizza is better. Once you tried the best (Chicago), nothing comes close.

Totally agree!!!   I think the pizza has improved in the last 3 years, but I'm not super picky.  Any pizza is good after the deluxe beverage pkg!  Jane

Good question , you should get a Pizza in a place that has open oven . 

Better Rome than Florence (as its more in the south although I got also good Pizza in Milan ). just make sure they are doing Pizza on the spot and not some slices which they prepared before.

In Florence you get also get good Pizza at the place I have sent you few month ago , just not sure you want just to try Pizza while you are in Italy.  in Florence you can also eat the Florence stake "bistecca alla Fiorenina" (tell your daughter  to look on the other way 🙂 ). Do not forget the ice cream , pistachio is a must to test , just make sure it is pale green  and with real pistachio inside , bright green can indicate its has color added and you want to avoid it. here is an address for a good ice cream place in Florence  Marco ottaviano , via matteo palmieri , 34 r but there many other over there  so if it is not near your route just find something else.

I'm trying to screenshot all of your suggestions!  I'm all over the steak lol ..I will have Madison order the pizza! 

I'm going to look for the PISTACHIO without the color!!   Jane

Haha, did all those things first time in NYC!

I've had good and bad pizza all over the country. Yes, even here in Chicago! 🤣

Pizza like all things is very regional. Don't even get me started with hotdogs! I am a big fan of Nathan's though.

Vienna hotdogs. Do we need another challenge?

Ok, we were on Anthem this year and I actually have to say that although it was not the best pizza that I have ever had it was FAR from being the worst.  I also have to say that it was FAR better than several of the other cruises that we have taken.  I actually had several slices of it per day!  I would honestly say that I would pay to have one, not saying that I would pay the same price of a "normal" place like at Papa Johns or Pizza hut  but I would gladly buy one.  Sprinkle some oregano and some extra parmesan cheese on it and I was in heaven!  In other words I have to agree with you!  While it is not a NY pie or Chicago pie it was still tasty and far more enjoyable than I remember!

It can't be as bad as the pizza like object that Disney delivered to us once via room service at Port Orleans Riverside. I couldn't even eat one slice!

I truly love Disney more than anything, but I have had that exact same delivery EXPENSIVE pizza and it was not good!  Sorrentos blows it away!   Jane
