Hate to break it to you, but I'm both nice and helpful when I'm working.

Yesterday I was professional even when this guy was calling me nonstop nagging me about when i'd get there (I give a window because adjusting isn't something within the timeline)

I got there with 5 minutes to spair within my arrival time and the guy told me he would of left in 15 minutes (This when I went out of my way to accommodate him) Walked out and told me to lock the door when I left!

My Noon appointment offered to buy me lunch! (No time, I ate my first meal at 9PM)

But the people here who don't know how to use a crosswalk and just step right out into traffic... that's another thing entirely!

Just ate at Tony's Baltimore Grill... Another disappointing pizza (This is a paperwork afternoon as people don't want to meet around thanksgiving... understandably, so I have a little time to relax and grab a meal.)

Seriously, Ya'll got all pissy about my vent (And I'll admit I was in a poor mood yesterday, got to inspect mold filled houses wearing a gas mask, my other 3 appointments other than the guy art noon sucked (Mostly managers for wealthy absent homeowners) and I was in alot of pain.
So I didn't mean it as harsh as it sounded (Although factually true)

I AM however looking for restaurant recommendations.

Sorry for the tone, I worked till 3 trying to get people advances, was up at 6:30 and I've been up working till 2 every night this week.

maybe you shouldnt be eating pizza everywhere. it always amazes me to see people speak about pizza with pride or any particular interest. it tastes good, but its not a meal.

Stop complaining about your job. Nobody cares.

i just looked up "tony's baltimore grill." why would you eat at a place like that and expect anything but very mediocre food? did someone recommend it? it looks like one of the junky places that used to deliver late at night when i went to college. sure, independent italian places can sometimes have some great food, but its risky to just randomly try one.

Recommended on Urban spoon.

And I haven't just tried pizza, Steaks, Seafood, Wings...

I was just hoping somewhere this close to NYC would have NYC quality pizza!

Need to find some of these boasted about hogies and bagles...

Do what everyone else does, try yelp. Or eat at chain restaurants like you have back in your homeland. It's gotta be like comfort food to you, right?

Been trying Urban spoon

It's successful elsewhere, but not here.

I rarely eat at chains.

i cant say that there are any places in atlantic city that i have been to that id recommend. i mostly eat at the borgata restaurants. the old homestead is a good steakhouse, but nothing to write home about.

Realistically speaking, the South Jersey coast is not really a culinary hot spot. There isn't really any population density, and with much of the people who normally go to those places being tourists, the food isn't that great.

I'm sure there are a few good places, but between the storm and it being the off season, you're already working with a much reduced list of restaurants....and there weren't that many to begin with.
