Turkey Devonshire

I'm always on a never ending mission to find the best burger, pizza, fish sandwich etc. One of my favorite old time dishes is turkey devonshire, but it's often prepared differently. Sometimes it's great, other times not so much. I'm curious if any Chowhounder's could recommend their favorites?

    1. Darn. I've been hoping someone else would respond to this with a great Devonshire recommendation.

      1. I haven't been, but you might try Diamond Market. Sounds promising on the menu. The place has only been open, what, a few weeks? So probably not many have tried yet. Appears to be using real turkey, not deli sliced.

          I will have to try that. Unfortunately, it says they only offer it at dinner, and Market Square is a lunchtime place for me. Maybe some weekend. Thanks.

        2. There is a place in Irwin, PA right off the turnpike called "Teddy's" My parents would always rave about thier Devonshire (say 25 years ago) ... If I recall they use to have it as a special on a certain night.... I have no clue if they still even have it on the menu or if its still good.

          I know this is not super helpful, but had to throw is out there.. I personally would not recomend Teddy's for much else

            I've been past Teddy's a hundred times, but never stopped. I will soon!

              Thier hot bacon dressing is very good!! They also make these egg rolls (think egg on steroids) that aren't too bad. I would call to see if they have devnonshire still. It is more of a meat and potatoe style place, been around forever and have thier loyal fans-- I am just not one of them

              On a side not Burghfeeder, if for whatever reason you frequent that part of westmoreland county -- I can give some other places to test out. Greesnburg has had an eplosion of food activity in the last 2 years.

              Well, I was passing Irwin on the Turnpike a couple of days ago and knew we had to stop at Teddys! The turkey devonshire is actually Chicken devonshire, but that's ok with me. Two thick slices of chicken breast, (very tender) on a thick slice of Texas toast with a tasty light cheese/cream sauce topped with three slices of thick bacon. No tomato though. This was very good, but I wouldn't put it in my favorites catagory. This is an old time place, but the food was good. Overall we had a very good lunch.

                First off, it is awesome that I got referenced in your blog. You hit Teddy's right on the mark.. I personally do not like Teddy's , the old school charm doesn't do it for me and the meats even high quality and too bland for my taste.

                Burghfeeder.. your blog is great spot for some HONEST reveiews of places I have yet to try . Too often PGH reviewers get caught up in taking pictures and being "in the crowd" rather than just focusing on food good or bad hahah.

                1. re: Augie6

                  Thanks for the kind words. I'm with you about Teddys, but it was exactly what I expected, so I don't really have anything negative to say about it. It is what it is, which is fine with me. If you read my stuff, you know that I don't have extensive technical knowledge about food. I'm no critic, so I leave most of the negative comments to those that get paid to say so. To me, if I have a good time, then the place is good!


            3. I used to really like the turkey devonshire at dunning's in regent square. I have not had it in a few years.

                Someone else recommended that who's not a chowhound. I ought to try that, too. Thanks, MM.
