Red Dogs and French Canadians

Simones' in Lewiston, Maine


This place is great. Friendly folks, classic Maine red dogs and the comfortable dialect of second generation Franco-Americans. Makes me feel like I'm in my hometown in Northern NH. I have to admit that I don't know if I'd have the chili again. It had sort of a baked bean taste and I'm not much for baked beans. But, it's hard to beat a steamed red dog no matter what you do with it.

Anchorage, AK Tommy's Burger Stop

In addition to making great burgers, the folks at Tommy's are avid supporters of the local roller derby, fans of Johnny Cash and critics of their esteemed governor. My kind of folks.
