Who Makes the Best Spiedies in the Southern Tier?

My aunt and cousin came to visit from Florida and neither had ever had a spiedie.  I told them they couldn’t come to Binghamton and not have one.  That’d be like going to Maine and not having lobster or to Vermont and not trying maple syrup.

Trying to explain to them what a spiedie is proved to be interesting.  I told them a spiedie is basically marinated hunks of meat grilled and served on bread or a bun.  They didn’t understand why we don’t just say that it’s marinated meat.  They thought the name “spiedie” was a silly name, but the word “spiedie” really isn’t as odd as you’d think.  The term “spiedie” comes from the Italian spiedo meaning spit or spiedini referring to cubes or balls of meat cooked on a skewer. Makes sense now doesn’t it?

I’ve got so many friends and family who will be visiting the next few months from all over the country and none of them have ever had a spiedie, so I’m searching for the best spiedie place in the Southern Tier. Leave a comment below with the name of the place that serves in the best spiedies around.  The businesses that receive the most nominations will go head to head in a battle round where you’ll have a chance to vote for the best. The next time one of my out-of-town friends comes to visit, I’ll take them to the place that wins!

Hurry and leave a comment below letting me know who serves the best spiedies around because the deadline for nominations is Wednesday May 1st at 8am.  Ok….go!
