      Hey jfood,
      what do you recommend ordering? How about their dogs?
      Can't wait to try it.
      I love this board!

        Go with the foods in the title. It's what they do best. The dogs are fine but the burgers are awesome.

          Is it diner food intrepid? It's never looked inviting but we're always up for good greasy spoon options. If we go, what should we try?

          1. If you're not having pizza in New Haven, don't forget to stop at Pepe's right off I-95 in Fairfield.

              Where's the good pizza in New Haven? I'm visiting Yale next week...

                Pepe's on Wooster St. is by far the best, not only in NH, but I think in the entire northeast. Try the clam pie!
