A good fast bite if you can find it in the terminal – Working another show means eating another fast meal. The show itself was at the famous Trocadero Theater for Jersey Shows Battle of the bands. I really just came along for the ride this time. And just helped out a little when it came to load in. After half way through the show, we decided to get food. So my friend Kevin suggested that we go a few blocks down to the Reading Terminal Market.
The Market is huge and has a lot of vendors and little restaurant stands. It is a amazing place for a person like me. So many choices to pick from and all of them smelled delicious. Unfortunately we were on a time limit. So we had to pick the place with the smallest line. Which left us with Franks Alot.
Frank's alot is a basic American BBQ spot. It seems to blend different items from different areas of the BBQ world. From your basic Hot dogs to BBQ chicken. It does seem that Frank is just a name sake. There was no one who could be frank in site, unless he is a little Asian woman. But the service was good and fast. I got a Texas Tommy, which is basically a hot dog with cheese and bacon wrapped around it. Apparently their version was a little different. It has the same basic elements. The difference is in how it is made. Usually the cheese is wrap around the dog. Then the bacon is wrapped around the cheese and the hot dog and it is cooked that way. They just threw the cheese on bacon on. It still tasted the same. So in the long run it really wasn't to much of a problem.
All in all the meal was nice and satifying. So I would say that Franks Alot is Fat Kid tested Fat Kid approved.
As always stay peckish my friends.
