      Thanks Dan,
      I'm at Penn Statte now and we are feet away from say sushi , we're on Allen and East Nittany.
      We've gone to say sushi twice- it's good and cheap and easy.
      We're korean-ed out and don't want pub food. We'd like to eat healthy- korean was good to eat healthy. Light food , not too expensive, I guess a better pub would be good and now that I think of it, we may want a big fattening burger fo lunch- early eating is ok. Out of the many pubbish eateries here- what's your fave?Best burger and thick fries?Don't need a jumbo size, just good quality. It's so nice out - can we avoid dark pubs- any light and airy atmosphere's?
      hope you get to this before lunchtime

        I think The Deli on Hiester makes the best burgers. The service can sometimes be a bit lame, but the burgers are worth it; and, given the nice weather, they have outdoor seating.

        I hear Baby's is popular as well, but can't comment on their burgers.

        Irving's on College Ave. has some pretty tasty lunch sammiches -- I'm partial to their Baja BLT.

        India Pavillion is good, but not exactly healthy eating '-)

        Otto's is a great brewery with some good bar grub, but not exactly airy, and also outside of the downtown area ---

        happy eatings!
