A steamed cheeseburger from Ted's? A fresh tomato pie from Pepe's? Wings from J. Timothy's? Clams from The Place? Ramen from Mecha?

Those are all running around in my mind, they're my go-to's when someone from out of state asks for the best food items that Connecticut has to offer. But, honestly, I'm kinda sick of everything lately. I think the white clam pizza from Pepe's is the most amazing pizza on the face of the earth, but I wouldn't order that as my last meal in Connecticut.

If I had to pick some of my favorites over the past year, they come close to being my final choice. I almost want to say the Tom Yum soup with shrimp from Thai BowL in Watertown, I never get sick of that, or the incredible ribs that Hoodoo Brown serves up every day in Ridgefield.

I want to keep it simple, not mix items from all of the different places, so I'm picking my go-to meal from "The gourmet of fast foods", a place that has never disappointed me: Frankie's on Watertown Ave in Waterbury.

For my last meal, I would order 2 of Frankie's delicious hot dogs, an order of fried mushrooms (Tartar sauce please), and one of their fountain Cokes. When I eat that from Frankie's, everything is alright in my world, I'm satisfied every time. That's the one meal that I would miss the most.
