Joshua Guiher (@collegiatestdms) was kind enough to send me a copy of “Pro Football Cookbook: Recipes for Home or the Tailgate,” a cookbook that features some of his recipes. The book is well-done. Every dish has a beautiful photograph. No dish is overly complicated (it needs to be able to be made in a parking lot) and each one reflects the style of a particular city. I can’t say enough good things about the format. I love Twitter, especially when it provides a nice surprise like this one.
Last week I ventured out to Tomato Land on Thomasville Road. I’ve heard so many good things about the food that my expectations were possibly a bit too high. Also, I apologize to the readers, I forgot to take pictures in my haste to scarf down lunch. You’ll have to take my word on this particular review, instead of seeing it for yourself.

Sorry guys, I forgot to take a picture before I gobbled up the bagels with friends. You’ll have to take my word for it on this particular review.
Bruegger’s Bagels (3211 Mahan Dr – Tallahassee, FL) Review
On Sunday, my wife and I had some friends stop by from Texas that were on their way to Tampa. I headed over to the newest Bruegger’s Bagels location on Mahan Drive for a baker’s dozen and a couple of tubs of cream cheese. After a quick stop at Publix, I walked in to Bruegger’s Bagels.
The store is bathed in light and bright colors. The dining area is up front and the layout flows from left to right. I don’t like how the counter and menu signs are hidden by the decorations and faux wall that separates the dining area from the counter, but the overall feel was bright and clean. A young woman behind the counter took my order for baker’s dozen and quickly placed my choices (Plain, Everything, Cinnamon Sugar and Asiago) into a paper bag and handed it to me. I asked her about the cream cheese with the combo and she pointed me to the refrigerated cases where I could grab them. I paid and headed home.

I took a ride over to Lenny’s Sub Shop to try to satisfy another Philly Cheesesteak craving. Lenny’s is on the corner of 6th and Thomasville Road. I suggest approaching from 6th rather than making a left from Thomasville Road if you’re headed there. When I entered, friendly employees greeted me. I took a moment to review the menu and decided to go with the #11 Philly Cheesesteak straight up with a bag of Lenny’s Baked BBQ Chips and a drink.
Jersey Mike’s Subs (Mahan Drive, Tallahassee, FL) Review
About one week ago, I finally tried Jersey Mike’s Subs for the first time. I took a short trip over to their new location at 3122 Mahan Drive, walked up to the counter and placed a To-Go order for a #17 Jersey Mike’s Famous Philly and a #56 Big Kahuna Cheese Steak. I went with the regular size on both subs, since the biggest one looked like it was huge based on the size of the bread. About ten minutes later I was ready to hit the road with my order.
