Choose Cleveland

Youngstown, Ohio is on the Ohio side of the Pennsylvania - Ohio border on Route 80. It is about 174 miles from Toledo, which is about an hour away from home.

We seem to arrive at Youngstown at roughly the same time every trip, dinner time. And we are always faced with a choice.

1) Eat the food we brought, although this is not always a choice, once the deli we picked up in passaic was no good, and other times we forgot to bring food.

2) Eat junk food, bagels, and whatever else we can find at a reststop. In truth, this is probably the best choice.

3) Get chips and pop, and keep on driving until we get home, and then try to eat something then.

4) Go to Cleveland to eat.

We rarely choose Cleveland. It adds at least an hour to the trip, plus eating time, but last night we went there. There were a number of choices where we could eat, and we chose Abbas, a place not known for their customer service, but they serve the kind of food I was looking for.

In all, it added an extra two hours to our drive home, but it was worth it.

I always opt for the junk food option.

Abba's: Food, 9/10. Service, 2/10.

Depends how quickly you want to leave...

service was not that bad, but we got there after the dinner rush. We have heard horror stories from there.

I worked there one month a long time ago. There's nothing like catching and eating the pita as it comes off the machine...
