Williamsport area in PA...

Crippled Bear - a bit of a dive...cash only. cheap dinner specials every night (35 cent wings and $3.25 burger in the garden w/ fries are my favorites) and most domestic drafts are 75 cents for happy hour. used to go there every Saturday night and dinner for me and my wife was about $20 before tip w/ a fews beers each. used to be mostly redneck folk that went there but now their kids go there...you'll see a lot of families there after baseball and soccer games and whatnot. the place is decked out w/ stuffed deer heads, bear fur, etc. here's a couple of pics uploaded on urbanspoon.com

Maseto's Deli - best sandwiches in town and Williamsport is a sandwich town. The one hot babe is my favorite.

Park Pizza - Really greasy, cheesy, hand tossed NYC style pizza. Destroyed by a fire a year ago from tomorrow. They rebuilt and re-opened October of last year. My wifes brother ordered a pizza the day they re-opened and they said it would be abour 2 hours. he went to pick it up and it wasn't ready for another hour or two...that's how busy they were that day

. I've been craving their pizza lately...i want to grab a pie and a 40 oz. and eat it in the park. it was the top story for the local news: http://www.wnep.com/news/countybycounty/wnep-wmpt-pizza-shop-destroyed,0,1108990.story

Not a restaurant but worth mentioning...

Rosencran's Bakery - best cheesecake ever. Cheap too...about the same price as a cheescake from the grocery store but way better. very dense and very rich. we got 6 cheesecakes from there for our wedding cake.

Ask him for a snackbox & hot sauce... Make sure he gives you a lot, he's notorious for givin 1 or 2 packets to non descripts...

On the way out (before they raised the prices), gotta give my man @ the door my change...

Walk a block to 56th & cop some sour... & before you get back on the train you can stop @ the bookie and make a bet...

OPEN 24 hours too... Watch for the group of Dominicans chillen in the front... If its after 12 and you don't look familiar it might not be a good trip uptown...

Got a N homesick...

Saburo Sushi House - SE Portland in the Sellwood district.

Best sushi I've ever had, and it's big enough to fill you up after 6 or 7 pieces.

Just get there early, a line starts forming around 4:30 (an hour before they open) and can build up to be a 2 hour wait before you know it.
