And yes, as I mentioned in another post, I meant to put Krispy Kreme, not DD.
***Mind Blown***

Look at anything involving seafood or Italian food and you'll find CT, NY, MA, ME, NJ etc -- Don't know what rock you're living under

Just to clarify.
There are so many parallels though. Tell me this plate doesn't look like a down home meal

One difference is that the average Jamaican meal tends to be much more healthy and includes many more fresh fruits and veggies.

Eat wherever the heck you like. Maybe in a few years amazon.com can drone-deliver some freeze-dried corn dogs directly into your colon.
They wouldn't be in a thread about chain restaurants

Another place I would go to(but is always packed), will have a mixture of things on the menu: http://stellasdinersyracuse.com/stellasmenu.pdf

and another one: http://www.themarketdiner.com/takeout.pdf

Here's a popular place in Rochester that i've heard good things about: Unkl Moe's BBQ & Catering - Home
Chain restaurants? There's a Whole Hog Cafe in Cherry Hill, NJ. I think these places are better: Roadside BBQ: South Jersey's secret gastronomic weapon

NJ diners serve grits, real grits. I've seen shrimp and grits on menus in Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. Still, they are Southern foods. I don't consider fried chicken Southern. My Irish grandmother who lived in Pennsylvania made very good fried chicken.

A lot of parallels. But the ketchup on grilled chicken they do in Jamaica would never fly in the south lol.

What most Americans know as fried chicken is indeed southern in origin. This isn't really a matter of opinion.

Really? I had NEVER heard of that before outside of the jerk chicken in Jamaica.

Nope. Not my point at all. I like to eat chips, myself. I'll start with the ones on all the shoulders in this thread. That should keep me full for a while.
