All American Drive-In of Massapequa

As I'd stated, this was a friend's experience, so remarks about *my* taste are inappropriate.
Besides, Gabilas call themselves "the Largest
Manufacturer of Knishes and related products in the WORLD!" so mass-market and frozen are apt descriptions. Argumentum ad populum is a logical fallacy; McDonald's is the biggest seller of hamburgers, but that's not an argument about how great they are.
It's not that I like it sliced open with a lot of spicy brown mustard, deli mustard, (not the firemens BBQ yellow mustard wierd stuff), because I do, It's that I have taken to adding in addition to copious amounts of mustard, a healthy dose of sauerkraut to my knishes.
I used to stop by Policano's Italian Sausage truck on Linden Blvd at 79th Street, Queens for a knish with lots of mustard and a heavy sprinkling of salt (he wouldn't let me get it any other way, thankfully) back when I had "business" in that area.
And that the Italian sausage and peppers (with onions) hero with ketchup, mustard, and salt were not an option either... made me lament that I couldn't get a knish at All American Drive-In (or anywhere) for a while.
I expect that my local supermarket will now carry them again as well, but getting one at All American Drive-In is much nicer. "Can I get a ganish, with extra Mustard and sauerkraut, please."
