Pickled onions

I used to live in Baltimore Md many years ago moving to SC in 1976. I remember one thing that I have really missed from there and can not find them anywhere. That is the large jumbo pickled onions that could be found in convenience type stores sitting on the counters much like you could find the pickled eggs in the large jars. These aren't the cocktail onions. I am wondering if anyone knows if they are still around and the company that they could be bought from. I would appreciate the help. One more thing. Being from Baltimore, close to the downtown area many years ago where all the shops used to be there use to be a restaurant called Nemo's, just a small shop that made philly steak subs. They were the best ever and just wondered if anyone knew anything about it and if it still exists, prob. not since it has been so long ago, but they were the best. Just don't find that in the south, the food is so different. Good food here also but I sure miss some of the traditions that I grew up with. And the barbecue was so different, more spicey with a totally different taste. I have to make a trip back soon and hope the food has not changed. The pizzas were also much better, more italian or tomatoey. Just different and better. Thanks for any help. I really would appreciate it.
