Okay. What the hell was in the Diablo sandwich (from Smokey and
the Bandit)? I know there's a Diablo brand sandwich press,
but the movie had to have come first.
Has anybody had an A-Bomb? It's a Buffalo thing, although the
ones I had were in Orlando. Hot Italian sausage, sliced before
cooking so it would lie flat on the bun, capicolla, provolone,
lettuce, tomato, and onions, with hot wing sauce. Mayo, oil and
vinegar were optional. The place also had beef sandwiches on
salty kummelweck rolls, and malt vinegar for the fries. Curly
fries, a rarity in the early Eighties.
I miss J-C's Wing Shop. I once ate almost seventy-five wings there,
although I lost my enthusiasm after the first fifty. The place was
sold to some Guatemalans and the food went to hell, much like the
neighborhood. At the gas station next door you used to be able to
get White Rock sodas, the ones with the bare-breasted nymph on the
The only better soda ever made was Frank's of Philadelphia. I wish
I had a wyshniak right now.
