interesting junk food places i saw on TV

Squeeze Inn is an interesting restaurant in Sacramento that serves up burgers that have a big skirt of melted fried cheese that’s bigger than the circumference of the hamburger and bun. I saw it on Food Network show “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.”

Buddy’s Pizza is a regular pizza favorite of mine in the Detroit Metro area. It was featured on Food Network in the show “Top 5”. Buddy’s features thick deep-dish pizzas. The antipasto salad is good and the minestrone is super thick — almost clam chowder thick.

A great pizza alternative to Buddy’s is The Alibi a family owned restaurant in Troy, MI. The pizza, salad, and breadsticks there kick mega ass. The Alibi has normal style pizzas but I think what sets them apart is the sweet yeasty crust and the premium toppings.

Zachary’s Chicago Pizza is a Berkeley, CA that’s on TV a lot, especially “Bay Area Backroads.”

The Waysider in Tuscaloosa, AL is a breakfast staple of the U. Alabama Crimson Tide. Although breakfast wouldn’t really be considered “junk food” you can get some seriously awesome mini biscuits that I can pretty much bet have your week’s quota of lard and/or butter built into them. Yes they’re that good.

San Francisco ZIP code map

I’ve been trying to figure out the ZIP codes in San Francisco for a while now but I kept getting a map of child abuse and neglect incidences. Finally I found a proper ZIP map.

Proper San Francisco ZIP map

Child abuse and neglect incidences by ZIP is an interesting one. Guess where the bad neighborhoods are.
