Dude food is cheap and easy.
This meal suggestion came from my quintessentially single 30-year-old male friend, Zipper Boy. Remember him?
Thanks Zipper, for reminding me that sometimes cooking is overrated.
So, in the spirit of ordering take-out, here are (in my opinion) the best pizza, sub and meat & potato eateries within a five-mile radius of my St. Petersburg home:
Best pizza: Valentino’s Little Italy. The pizza is thin and the sauce is savory. I love that there’s always a stack of Old Northeast Journals by the register. And the people who work there are so agreeable even though Joe constantly knocks over the little cup of toothpicks on the counter.
Best $5 sub: Jimmy John’s. Yes, I’m going with a chain. I’m obsessed with JJ subs. They’re the best bang for your buck and the #6 vegetarian option comes with a delectable mayo/avocado spread.
Best meat & potatoes: Moon Under Water. They serve fried macaroni cheese bites. Hello? Who could ask for more?
