So after a morning run with Theresa (where she literally ran laps around me), we decided to try out Hogan's Heroes for some sandwiches. Now, let me just say that I love Yelp. That site has helped not only find some of the best hole-in-the-walls in town (Tokyo 7-7), it's also provided great comfort and confirmation that some restaurants are either spectacular (La Cachette) or very disappointing (Terroni). These days I don't even want to go to a restaurant until I check out the Yelp reviews.
Then we walk in and I notice on the walls they have these really cool pics of people who have taken a pic in front of the hot dog! Sadly, what Theresa and I think is clever (finger up his nose) has been played out. So much for being original.
Lucy, the mom to the owner and his wife is really blunt and funny. Her humor is sarcastic and a little biting, but I like that. I tell her I came bc of Yelp and she tells me that she's really touched by all the nice reviews. I can see that she is genuinely touched by all the good things she is reading.
Here's the menu up top. It's a classic burger, fries, sandwich, hot dog place..
I look to the right and see this sign...can chili be that hot?
We order a hot pastrami sandwich and an italian (with oil and vinegar on the side to dip - see top pic for the italian):
We also tried the chili but I don't care what kind of camera you have, not even the best chili can come out well in pictures. Lucy gave us a sample of her son's famous hot chili - it is so hot you have to sample it on a toothpick.
