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
pic of new park pizza...


Ichiban - hibachi steakhouse and sushi bar. great steak hibachi...only thing i get.


Newberry Sub shop - your smelly little sub shop. cash only. plenty of bang for your buck and great subs.



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.


urbanspoon.com is a good site to see ratings of restuarants all over...

all but the last 2 i posted ranked in the top 10 for the area but the other 2 had good ratings...

Take the 1 train to 157th & Broadway... Soon as you walk out you'll see... (my man Muhammed got the socks & wife beaters too)


Go inside, you'll see THIS guy... He's good people...


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.

Whenever I pick up my mom from work, I gotta make this stop.



But nowadays, I just go to the bootleg joint on Fordham, in the Bronx. Jumbo's is the name
.

There's a few more, but I'm drawing blanks right now.
