Wandering around Walnut Creek today, I noticed Stadium Pub had a sign for Kosher Vienna Chicago Hot Dogs on the outside wall that had a picture of said dog.
I took a peek inside at the menu and they seem to have a number of East Coast eats like steamers (real little neck clams), Italian Sausage sandwiches, Philly Cheesesteaks, Italian Beef, St. Louis style BBQ ribs ... and ...
"Hot Pastrami on Rye - For you pastrami purists out there, we bring this Pastrami in from the Bronx! It's so good that we serve it with only brown mustard on light jewish rye...just like back in New York City!"
The beef is ground daily for the burgers, the turkeys are roasted daily in their ovens, and they cook their own corned beef.
The Vienna Beef dogs and poppy seed buns are flown in from Chicago.
On a forum for fishermen, someone said their fish and chips (with hushpuppies), were the best. Fish and chips are only served on Fridays.
It's a major sports bar with over 30 tv's.I've read that during football season they have a Sunday Breakfast Buffet for those that have to get up early for the east coast game. Owner Richard Sherman is a New York Giants fan.
They have two humidors with mostly mid to high-end cigars. Supposedly cigars and micro brews are favorite topics of Sherman. Smoking of cigars must take place outside though.
It is the oldest sports bar in Walnut Creek and someone on a long ago pub crawl noted the following beers on tap: Guinness, MacTartans, Razzberry Wheat, Fosters Lager, Bacchus Ale, Hübsch Maibock, Bass Ale, Coors Light, Hübsch Hefeweizen, Sudwerks Dunkels, Oregon Honey Beer, and Red Hook ESB
Didn't note the beers today, but if you click on the link to the main page below, they mention they have 22 beers on tap.
This sounds like the solution to so many Chowhounds cravings and yet it isn't mentioned on the board. I was trying to walk off a major Polish lunch so there was no room left even for thoughts of food. Like a snake swallowing a mouse, it's going to take a few weeks to digest everything I ate today.
So, Stadium Pub sounds too good to be true - Is it?
