I've never had good gumbo, its one of those things I figure I'll try if I ever get to NO.
What some people call Gumbo up North is blasphemy.

I guarantee you that if you made Gumbo it would suck
Meh, your approval isn’t something I would need anyway. I’ve been to New Orleans a few times. My gumbo is on par with the restaurants down there. No need to try to fool yourself that only people from there can make it.

I put Mayo on my hot dogs but dont worry only Blue Plate.

Also, Nola fucks Chicago in food. Bozos
NOLA has great food, but It always amazes me how they live past 35 down there. Everything they eat starts with 2 sticks of butter

NOLA has great food, but not as diverse as NYC, CHI, LA, SF in ethnic options. Although I haven't been there in awhile.

Philly is a very underrated food city imo. Houston too.

Gumbo made by @SilenceS will always be better to me than anything I'd make.

My brane already thinks so, for one.

But more importantly:

-Didn't need to clean my kitchen, he did.
- I didn't need to source nor purchase any of the ingredients.
- None of my time was spent cleaning nor prepping produce/protein.
- I didn't need to clean up after prepping the ingredients
- All the time spent cooking the food happened before I arrived
- At no point do I need to worry about the dishes

For you chefs/restaurant people, some of us do the Math on all the shit you do that we're paying for lol.

Define Capitalize

I always ended up at the place by the Western Ave blue line stop on my way back drunk from the Map Room.
The Polish sausage comes with fries. I said I didn't want the fries and the guy said I was getting the goddamn fries or he was gonna kick my ass. The fries were pretty good.
I had a friend when I was a kid who lived in Worth and took me to Mickey's (on 111th). I was probably 10 or 11. I ordered a hot dog with just ketchup, and the guy behind the counter looked at me (a kid, mind you) deadly serious and just says, "we don't do that here." I've heard they've gotten mellower since then, lol.

Mickey's serves frozen french fries. They don't get a fucking opinion on anything. Posers o.jpg

You shouldn’t be eating fried food or anything not liquified. No wants to see you gum down a dog and fries. I’ve seen it before and it’s disgusting
I used to think you were the most sensible of all the moderators, if that's even possible. I'm changing my mind.

Frozen french fries are never acceptable and should not be eaten or blended or whatever sick shit happens in your root cellar with your "friends".

When I was young I went to see my friend in Cedar Rapids.
We went to the food court at the mall and he insisted I get a taco dog.
It was a hotdog with fritos and salsa on it.
That's an ethnic meal in Iowa. That and taco pizza.
Don’t forget about tenderloins

How many Hot Dog stands have you worked in, besides your McDonalds job?
I'm fairly 100% certain that literally no one considers McDonald's to be a "Hot Dog stand" or did they in the past acturally sell hot dogs because I have literally never seen a hot dog on any McDonald's menu board did you mean Sonics Drive in because they have hot dogs or maybe Hardies or Darey Queens? Not McDonald's at least in my whole entire life time.
