The Blue Door Pub - St Paul, MN

Featured on Bizarre Foods America and Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

Blue Door Pub is a neighborhood bar located in a comparatively quiet neighborhood with limited commercial business. Driving by it was easy to miss as sign isn't the most prominent from the driver's angle.

Best Chocolate - Lindt 70% Cocoa Smooth Dark

The Great Dane Pub - Dane County Regional Airport MSN




The Great Dane is one of the limited number of eateries at the airport and the only one offering sit down service.  It certainly was packed at lunch time but customers also cleared out quick as cockroaches with flights scheduled to depart.

Wei Hong Bakery & BBQ - St Louis, MO

Hyundai Accent



Surprisingly responsive and better acceleration than anticipated. Relatively good unblocked views out the back and side windows. Capable. Basic not too much for high tech.

Legal Sea Foods - Philadelphia International Airport PHL



Let's get the question out of the way.  Yes, it's expensive because it's seafood but the cost is elevated even more so because it's airport food.
