Is there even such a thing? I read through this entire long thread: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/444657 and didn't quite find what I was looking for, so am starting a new thread just hoping someone knows what I want and can point me in the right direction.
I'm looking for that place (or those places) that serve really great local food, the kind you don't find, or don't find as nearly well done other places. My thing is divey to moderate, and it can be the kind of place where you have to order at the counter or from a paper takeout menu. Uninspired decor is no problem, but I'd like it made up for with a little local color.
So, make any sense at all?
And, many thanks for any recs, and for understanding what I'm talking about!
