If you like a great meal with a wonderful view, the shores of Lake Erie will certainly enhance your quality dining experience. This city of just under 100,000 people offers a wide variety of foods, including Latin, Italian and American cuisine inside an old rail car. No matter your preference or hunger level, Erie has plenty of options. Dedicated carnivores will be thrilled to note a selection of barbecue joints, and seafood aficionados will be delighted at the range of options. Looking for something simple and portable? Dive into Smith's hot dogs, which are served at several dining locations. You can order these and store them in your freezer for when you just have to have one. Finally, be sure to save room for a sweet serving of frozen custard.
