The sad thing about Dayton is the high number of abandoned boarded up houses in the city, every Friday there is a large section of the Dayton Daily News just for the Sheriff's sales. Someone I know from another website did a lot of photography around town and posted the pics.

My dad's house in Dayton View is still on market since February 2006. Two months ago the price is reduced from $56 k to $30 K.

The Submarine House is still here (in several locations) & the subs are yummy as ever! However, Salem Ave. is now riddled with gangs, drive bys, etc. & yes, it still sucks here unless you go south. Come back for a sub but stay way south or east of Dayton.

How can Dayton suck when Milano's is still around? (and if it ever closes, don't tell me ... I don't want to live in a world without Milano's)
Ahhh...the old Milanos! I was out of state until 2006. The Milano's in Springboro is a huge disappointment...the sub's about as long as my hand, little or no meat, & the toppings I asked for were missing. Maybe I need to go to Brown Street?

Hey Ron,

I hear you. I am originally from Dayton (born and raised, 25 yrs there) but now live in Chicago (Lakeview/Wrigleyville). Dayton was really boring and I had to get out of there and I have been in Chicago for 10 years now.

But Dayton did have some AWESOME restaurants...

Sub House
Milano's
Cassano's
MARION's PIZZA (My favorite in the world!!)
Penn Station

I have to say, Chicago is known for its deep-dish pizza, but I don't really care for it. I prefer thin-crust pizza, the kind Dayton seems to be good at making.

I also miss Meijer's (although we do have them out in Chicago's suburbs, they aren't the same as the ones back in Dayton were...the ones here seem smaller and not as good). Super Wal*Mart seems to be better these days.

As a native Chicagoan, not everybody in the city liked deep dish. This was known as sicilian style, and had a sort of connection with Mafia take-overs of restaurants. Chicago had a lot of thin crust places too. In fact I dont remember ever having a deep dish pizza when I was growing up in Chicago (and I lived in the city).

Dayton does have good local pizza. Rons down in Miamisburg was my favorite.

The other thing Dayton has is a lot of Chinese restaurants. They seem to be all over the place.

I'm sorry but if the best things about dayton are the food chains there than I have to unfortunately say that yes it still sucks. All I personally know about dayton is what I've gathered from visiting a friend at U.D. as I am from Cincinnati. Never hear anything much about dayton down here but again I am not an authority as I don't live there.

What's so great about Dorothy Lane Market? Overpriced hype, if you ask me.

Dayton pizza is boring and bland -- you need Cincy's LaRosa's! Yet oddly, most Dayton folks don't appreciate LaRosa's. Why is that? Y'all like Marions. Vastly inferior to LaRosa's, not even in the same league!
