DiningIn Staff Picks: Best Veggie Burger Delivery

In the world that we live in, there are a variety of different uses for veggie burgers. Popular restaurants oftentimes add them to their menus so that vegetarians can feel included while their carnivorous friends are chomping down beef burgers to the left and right of them, carnivores themselves can use them as a dietary aid when they’re on a strict diet without the freedom to eat cheeseburgers, and, genuinely, great chefs work to build delicious veggie burgers to defy their customers’ expectations.

Featured Boston Restaurant: Sweet Cupcakes

Cappuccino cupcake, Sweet Cupcakes, Boston

Sometimes, the sweetest things in life are the simplest things. This is true for cupcakes everywhere, as they are all generally sugary concoctions that are best enjoyed after you’ve already taken in your vitamins and nutrients for the day, and Boston and Cambridge’s Sweet Cupcakes lives up to its name in more ways than one.

Sweet Cupcakes’ cupcakes are literally sweet to the point of perfection - from the creamy, rich frosting to the moist and sweetened cupcake itself. Figuratively, they’re also pretty ‘sweet’ as well – the cupcakes are decorated all pretty and they’re the perfect size to indulge in without feeling all that guilty about it.

The Best Game Day Foods (And Where To Get Them Delivered From)

Best game day foods, ribs, Joes American

The four-week stretch between the last two weeks of October and the first two weeks of November may very well be the best period of the entire year for sports fans. Think about it: the MLB hosts its annual World Series, the NFL and college football are in the heat of their seasons, the NHL’s a month into the season, and the NBA and college basketball are just starting out. Needless to say, it’s a great time for game day foods.


Never mind great time for game day foods, it’s the BEST time for game day foods! Whether you’re tailgating at Gillette Stadium in New England, at the Darrell K Royal Stadium in Austin, TX, or in the comfort of your own living room watching the Chicago Bulls on a Tuesday night, there are always certain foods that both make the big game that much better and that much more entertaining. Thus, we’ve collectively come up with a list of the best game day foods for 2014, and we’ve even paired up a few of our favorite restaurants for you to get them delivered from in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis and Philadelphia!


Joe's American Bar & Grill, Boston - Two pounds of ribs served with french fries and coleslaw? It doesn't get more American than this. If you can look at the picture of these ribs to the left and not drool, kudos. 

Doc B’s Fresh Kitchen, Chicago - You don't know the definition of "Fall-off-the-bone" ribs until you try those from Chicago's Doc B's. (Seriously.) 

Peggy Sue’s BBQ, Dallas - Dallas knows BBQ, as does Peggy Sue's, whose ribs are a must for anyone watching the Cowboys or college football. 

Market Bar-B-Que, Minneapolis - Why did Jay Leno venture up to the Twin Cities? To eat ribs from Market Bar-B-Que is why. Just like he made his way up to Minnesota, we'll venture to your abode to deliver the ribs to you.

A lot of people aren’t aware of the fact that October 25th has been labeled “National Greasy Foods Day” (perhaps it’s just an Internet thing…), but we don’t see any potential hurt in reminding you that this food holiday does in fact exist because, if you didn’t know, greasy foods and food delivery go together like locks and keys. So, being your greasy food delivery experts, we’re here to enlighten you of ten belt breakers-that are worth indulging in on National Greasy Foods Day – two from Boston, two from Chicago, two from Dallas, two from Minneapolis and two from Philadelphia!

1. Fried Chicken Fingers Plate – The Coast Café, Boston 

Who said that the city of Boston couldn’t serve delicious, authentic, southern fried food? Whoever did was not aware of the existence of The Coast Café right across the Charles River just outside of Cambridge’s Central Square. The Coast Café serves some of Boston’s best comfort food, and the place to start there – undoubtedly – is the fried chicken. For me, I indulge in the Fried Chicken Fingers Plate if I don’t have any responsibilities the rest of the day and can nod off on the couch in the middle of a weekend afternoon with no worries. That’s the whole point of comfort food – to make you feel comfortable.
