Funny Name, Fantastic Flavor
I was told by a good buddy who grew up in Newark (amongst many other people) that the Italian Dog from Dickee Dee's was something I needed to have as soon as possible. Like an idiot I waited months before getting out there to Newark to check it out, but I'm so happy I did.
This Italian Dog was massive, and on home baked bread from the bakery across the street which is legendary. The bread was firm but not hard and stood up to this gigantic and messy sandwich perfectly. The potatoes, onions, and peppers had such great flavor and with the dog and that awesome bread it was just outstanding. I caught a lot of hell in our video for having ketchup on it, but I told the people at Dickee Dee's to make it exactly how it comes if you order one standard, and that's what I got. No regrets at all, this was fantastic.
Had some of the kids with me so wanted to grab them a pie also. I took a bite from the front and a piece of the crust from one of them just so I knew. The pizza was also very good. Cheese to sauce ratio was nice, good flavor, a decent char on the bottom of the pie, and the crust wasn't too doughy. A standard slice from any very good pizzeria in NJ for sure.
I will say that parking here is nearly impossible. I double parked on a really busy road and just hoped I wasn't going to get hit, ticketed, or towed. The cost of everything though was pretty standard for what you would expect, and I definitely felt like I got my money's worth. I'll for sure be back in here at some point...this was a great way to spend a few bucks and put myself in an epic food coma. Dickee Dee's in Newark, NJ - Didn't Suck!
