Cheap Eats ~ New Haven

East Coast

Home to the most OG burger spot in the world and sporting a pizza style that makes New Yorkers swoon, I would move to New Haven out of foodie principles if I could handle the cold and had the GPA to live that close to Yale University. But since it makes for a the perfect pit stop in between NYC and Boston, I know I will be back. And pizza is just the tip of the Cheap Eats iceberg. So ...

City of Brotherly Grub. Yes, Philadelphia is truly a grand land of Cheap Eats and frankly could not be a better place to begin the fourth season of Cheap Eats. Philly is a special town for me, a veritable second hometown as this is where my wife hails from. In general I love the East Coast: the history, the diversity and die hard food traditions. Ask someone from Philly where the best hoagie is and you will get an earful. ...

Boys and Girls, welcome to the Season Finale of Cheap Eats brought to you by the killer food scene and all around good vibes of Burlington, Vermont. Now I had never been to Burlington before, but I spent too many years listening to Phish and watching pals trot off to UVM(University of Vermont) to not have some idea of the potential here. First off, in June, Burlington is a beautiful place and we were lucky to catch a music festival ...
