Like anything green and fresh here that citro stuff comes up here on trucks from Miami. Once in awhile some of the stuff gets kinda turned around abit and as we can't co-mingle our product we can take it.

Next chance I get I see if I can get you some. I don't like it so I don't know if its good stuff or not.

You seem like a nice man so ill hook you up.

It was for the first year and exploring new things. It has been about 6 years and I still try new things and check out the area, but for me, this is not a place I want to live and when I move, I doubt there would be anything I would want to come back and see on vacation.
I wonder if the same thing could be said about comparing Italian food here versus Italian food in much of the West?

Just being curious, but what are you looking for in an area?

The same can absolutely be said about Italian food. I am told I don't know good pizza. Based on the pizza I grew up on, it is all good. I ate very little Italian food before moving here because it wasn't as abundant. The only place that served slices was the mall. All the corner pizza joints here are taco joints on the West Coast.

OP, if you are a fan of the following chains, you will want to get your fill. Carl's Jr., Jack In The Box, Del Taco, Albertos, Yoshinoya, In N Out, Farmer Bros, Black Angus, Marie Callenders (it is just frozen food here), Rubios, Baja Fresh, El Pollo Loco, El Torito, Coffee Bean, On The Border, Cinnabon, DQ, Round Table, Wahoos, Weinerschnitzel, Hot Dog On A Stick, Chik-Fil-A, Fatburger, Islands, and others.

I only listed those out because if anyone were to be looking at filling a new development (like Township 5) these would be a good list of places you might want to look into. Variety is the spice of life. Sure these are all chains, but they are not in this area. We don't need another McDonalds, BK, Taco Bell, KFC, or Subway.

We also don't need any more Dunkin Donuts or Tim Horton's. Their coffee is so bad I can't even walk inside. Colombian coffee must be super cheap now because they all smell like it... like brew from old, rancid grounds.

Or a chain place Timmies ain't bad. I'm actually watching them build a new one here as I type this.

But nothing compares to the coffee and doughnuts from Dippin Doughnuts. And now that Timmies is here its unlikely they will expand farther West.

TJ don't eat the pizza in the city or you'll never be albe to eat this upstate stuff again. If you must that Pazones ain't to bad a comparison.

I have eaten pizza in the city and it is good. Pavones is also good.

Oh that reminds me. Breakfast pizza is a thing here. You haven't seen anything like it in CA. You won't find a breakfast burrito in town except for a few select places and they aren't very good.... like McDonalds.
