    Oh I love Paczkis. Now everyone is trying to replicate them, even grocery stores. I have to agree the coneys are the best!

  2. Lisa Rios says:

    Out of all of these, I love the wet burrito (it sounds delicious!) and the olive burger looks to die for. I’m a sucker for all olives. LOL I’ve got to try these all sometime.

  3. Kelly Reci says:

    I think I’ll go with Paczkis, it looks delicious and yummy. I also wanna try the Wet Burritos.

  4. Our Family World says:

    Everything looks delicious! Coney dogs are a staple but I have to try those wet burritos! They look so tasty. I’d finish off my wet burritos meal with one or two of those paczkis! Yum.

  5. I have not tried the olive burger but I’m not a big fan of pasties or Coneys. Who knows maybe I haven’t found the right one.

  6. I have wanted to try paczkis since I saw them on a Travel Channel show about Poland. Great to know I can find some authentic ones closer to home. I love trying the regional foods when I visit places. I’m partial to Cincinnati’s coneys (Skyline anyone?!), but the pasties look delicious. I’d love to know how a UK dish became popular in the UP. The Olive Burger also has me intrigued. It looks incredible!

  7. Becki says:

    Now I’m hungry! LOL I’ve tried olives on a burger, but never quite as many as the picture… Hubby went to school in the UP, so he has a hankering for pasties from time to time.

  8. Nadia says:

    Raising my hand and shouting “Yes, I’m hungry!” I love everything in your list but I think I want to try the pasties first. Should I eat it with a hot or cold beverage? Great list.
