We're taking my mother to AC on Saturday; she usually goes with a seniors' group; we never go. A quick scan of this board leads me to believe our dinner choices in AC are 1) expensive casino places and 2) dives. Is that pretty much it? If so, might there be someplace along the road back home towards Philly where we could find a pleasant atmosphere with not-too-expensive, basic food? (My mother is 83; great appetite, but conservative) not necessarily chowish -- Italian, maybe, not much else ethnic.) Of course, if I'm wrong about AC, please correct me!!
Any help at all would be most appreciated. Thanks!!
