With all this talk of Washington this and Washington that, debt
ceilings and budgets... I am getting sick to my stomach. I
mean how much more of this can we really take?
With that in mind, I thought about some of the greatest... and less
than great ... meals that I have had. Here and there I have
had the pleasure of being at a big box retailer that also serves
food. Sometimes they are good, sometimes, well sometimes I
think a traveling chef's comments would be what we need for these
I have to admit in Chicago I am in love with a particular eatery
that is more or less inside a big box style store. It's the
Home Depot on Elston in the city. They have the best Depot
Dogs of all Depot Dogs style spots. I love a Depot Dog after
another exhausting trip to the
so my wife can not make her mind up on cabinet hardware or what
type of door knocker we need.
They are properly positioned at the exit of the store so I don't
get all my condiments all over their merchandise. The dogs
are fast, cheap and quite reliable to nourish me on a trip home
filled with questions like "maybe I should have bought this kind of
thing" ... yeah, me and my Depot Dogs have a special kind of bond.
On the not so good end of things I have a blast from the past.
Back when K-Mart
) was the hip spot to shop, there was an eatery at the rear of the
store. Can you believe that they served Salisbury Steak
there? Talk about a
blue light special
. Now I never had the guts (of steel) to actually buy that
treat for $2.99, but someone had to. Question is are they
still alive to tell the tale?
What is your favorite big box eatery? Which one is the worst?
