Maybe they should rename the place Hooter Dog.
The menu looks good also.

If anything Tamaqua is central pa. NEPA it is not.
Tamaqua SD says that it is part of NEPA:

Tamaqua Area School District

Also, this lists the counties that are commonly held to compromise NEPA:

Northeastern Pennsylvania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It is right on the border with the Allegheny Mountain area though so I could understand your confusion. Central PA most normally is defined as Northumberland, Snyder and Union counties.

Well actually I would normally define Central PA would include at least Centre County. LOL

Can't trust wiki. Good thing is, if you don't like it, change it.

The NEPA Wiki also indicates Columbia County is in NEPA, yet as has been pointed out in other posts, towns in Columbia County consider themselves in Central PA.

As far as the SD, yes you are correct.

But, I still don't consider it NEPA.

Tamaqua may not be right in the Scranton/WB area, but it is NEPA, and Scranton/WB TV stations are their local stations. I'm sure if you asked someone in Allentown/Bethlehem, they would not consider Tamaqua to be Lehigh Valley. Central PA? Not even close....it is eastern PA. Central PA is pretty much Montour County on the east, to maybe Clearfield County on the west, and from the Maryland border north to the New York border within that area.

I didn't get my information on Central PA from a Wiki site though.

Yes and my husband's relatives that live in Columbia County that considers themselves natives of NEPA.

Many people do.

i WAS VISTING MY GF (sorry lock was on) and she said as we were talking about food, we all think what our Mom's or what we grew up with was the best! Yup! BTW, she is not a native of this land, but of Italy or now it is part of Croatia (sp?) and she died when I told her about OF pizza. She also said the pizza in Italy was defintely different, but was she was lost with the American cheese.

As we continued our discussion we both realized the water was the issue, NY water is truly wonderful water and that is one big difference with our crust issue and bagels!

I've been telling everyone I know that it's all in the water but no one believed me. Now along comes a believer.
