Where's your "regular" spot?

cgarner | Jan 7, 201112:27 PM

I live in the Lansdale area and I know we have our “regular” spots that we go to grab a bite to eat. Nothing fancy, just good food.

Places where we’re regulars

Huey’s on Main Street Lansdale – Wednesday the special is Turkey dinner… I love their stuffing and it’s REAL turkey! Ok, so the veggie is usually over cooked and has too much butter and garlic on it, but who cares when you have that STUFFING!
Also, Clive the bartender works Wednesday nights and he’s an awesome mixologist. He specializes in the “old fashioned” style drinks. Let him be creative for you!

Friday nights, Vinny bartends… he’s got a great personality and makes a great Long Island Iced Tea! I don’t know what his secret it, but they’re better than most I’ve had (and, well, I’ve had a few LIT”s in my life)

Turkey Clubs are made from REAL turkey too, not the lunchmeat and they’re piled high
Chicken salad is home made and delicious!
Burgers are always very good
(if you’re getting anything with fries, tell them you want the fries “well done” otherwise they’ll come out looking pale and limp, sadly you have to TELL them well done fries to get nicely browned crispy fries)

Saigon@Main right across the street from Huey’s in Lansdale
I know the place gets mixed reviews here. We’ve been going since they opened and the owner treats us like old friends. Love their house three favorites appetizer platter and could scarf that as a meal to myself if I didn’t have my husband and daughter sticking their chop-sticks in to grab the beef wrapped in grape leaves, grilled meatballs and crispy spring rolls!
I also love their Deluxe Pho, but could do without the tripe in it. The tripe is like a rubber band… but the beef tendon… oh it’s almost a sexual experience for me eating Deluxe pho because of that unctuous tendon!
Their Grilled Pork Bun (vermicelli) is also REALLY good
OH and I can't forget the fish in clay pot! Oh! That's awesome
sweet/salty/spicy hits on all cylinders
put a little of the fish, some rice and a squeeze of sirachi on a spoon and pop that little bit o' love into your mouth (you'll thank me for it)

Los Sarapes, Chalfont PA
Wednesday night, is LADIES night! Cheap margaritas… and their house margarita is actually very good! I like mine blended with no salt, (I know, I know… not the way to have a REAL margarita… you say to-may-toh I say Toh-Mah_toh)
I have yet to try anything here I didn’t like
My “go to” dishes are
Carne tampaquena
Which are file strips marinated and grilled served w/ beans, rice, roasted poblanos pico de gallo and enchilada and I forget what else,

Puerco Oaxaqueno
Pork loin, so tender grilled and served in this amazingly dark colored/flavored sauce
It’s delicious, but not overpowering, you taste coffee or is that chocolate? All I know is that it tastes like MORE!

Flautas – Excellent and for the money you can’t beat the Mexican Combo platter which has enchilada, tacos and tostadas (I think beans and rice too, I could be wrong)

Ok, so give me your “regular” hangouts and tell me what you order there and why!
