If you could only eat one meal from a Southern Tier restaurant, what would that meal and restaurant be? That's the question I asked. A tough question in my opinion. I don't even know if I could answer that, but many of you did.

I probably would pick the food as pizza, but we have so many great places that make great pizza, and the decision would be tough. But is pizza really considered a meal? Well, I guess for a true restaurant meal, for me it would be the Fettuccini Ignazio from Cortese Restaurant in Binghamton. Pieces of lobster tail in alfredo sauce taste amazing.

This whole thing began during a conversation with some co-workers during a recent lunch, discussing our favorite restaurant meals. Everyone had a completely different answer. And to me, that shows we have a lot of great restaurants offering delicious selections on their menu.

So, I thought I'd expand on the subject and ask on social media, a question - If you could have only one restaurant meal, what would it be and what is the restaurant? I love the fact I received so many answers. Well, over 1000 answers. Overwhelming to read through them all.


From pizza to breakfast meals, steaks, spiedies, fish entrees, BBQ, and more, I don't think many, if any type of food was not mentioned. I thank you all for your comments, and now you've made me really hungry to try some of these meal suggestions.

Here are 11 restaurants out of over 100 restaurant meals that had the most mentions.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
