Boneless spare ribs with wild mushroom rice and popcorn cauliflower.  The ribs were moist and delicious, Iíd order them anytime in a restaurant.  The popcorn cauliflower was fantastic as well.

Sesame chicken, Chicken Tortellini with pesto sauce, and Balsamic Baby Portabella Mushrooms.  The Sesame chicken was good though it could have used more sauce.  The mushrooms were great and the chicken tortellini was very good as well.

Eggplant Rollatini.  This stuff is unbelievable.  Eggplant loaded with ricotta, tomato sauce, and cheese. Itís probably the best eggplant dish Iíve had in my life.  An absolute must try.

Eggplant Parmesan was the absolute best Eggplent Parmesan Iíve had in my life as well. Itís such a pleasure to eat so well while traveling.

Penne a la Vodka was good, though overshadowed by our massive portions of out of this world Eggplant dishes.

Honey Mustard Corned Beef.  This was a truly awesome mouth-watering dish.  Thick juicy slices of tangy corned beef, itís a real treat.

Glazed dark meat chicken stuffed with pastrami was awesome.  The couscous and green beans were good as well.

I wasnít such a fan of the Sino steak as it was a bit tough.

Fettuccine Alfredo was creamy and fantastic.

Baked Ziti was delicious as well.

Lasagna was good, but not quite up to par as some of the other dairy meals.

Absolutely perfect Chicken Marsala though I wasnít such a fan of the Shlishkes. The grilled Portabella Mushrooms were very good.

Hot pastrami was very good, but just canít compete with the honey mustard corned beef.  The Garlic mashed potatoes were phenomenal!

Ancho Marinated Hanger Steak had a fantastic flavor though it got a bit dried out unfortunately.  The grilled vegetables were very good.

The Mac and Cheese was very good, though obviously not as good as when the hotel heats it up for you.

Spicy Southern Fried Chicken Nuggets are outstanding.  The seasonings are just amazing.  The only thing Iíd like with it is a dipping sauce so it was perfect that we also had the meatballs below!

Meatballs were very good in a tasty sauce.

Mini stuffed cabbage were excellent as were the roasted potatoes and garlic string beans.

But this was what really blew me away.  The Delmonico steak in a red wine reduction was far superior to the steak that youíll receive in your local steakhouse.  And when a store figures out how to make a frozen steak that is reheated taste better than what most steakhouses serve Iím left completely speechless.  Plus itís packed with 2 of my favorite sides-the garlic mashed potatoes and popcorn cauliflower.

From various DDFrs -
 Honey mustard corned beef and the spare ribs were delicious.
The garlic green beans were a great side dish.
The cheese blintzes were fantastic
Sesame chicken, Chicken Tortellini

From SF Maui TR http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=46759.msg968426#msg968426
Every single dish, whether a fancy rib steak or simple tzimmes, was absolutely delectable. The General Tso's was saucy, spicy, and delicious

@Yehuda - August 2015:
Great - BBQ chicken nuggets, Baked breaded chicken cutlet, Buffalo chicken wings, Cheese blintzes, Penne ala vodka, Popcorn cauliflower, Roasted potatoes were great.
Okay - Ribs too fatty for me, Fire Poppers Chicken Nuggets too spicy for me, Garlic broccoli, Mashed potatoes
Bad - Roasted asparagus (was white asparagus)

Here's how it works:
Use the search bar and fill your destination address (hotel/airport/home/office,etc) , date range and how many guests will eat. View the caterer's kosher certification, select your favorite kosher meals from the caterer's menu for the days you need, choose your delivery preference and make an order

For road trips, nothing better than a large cooler with dry ice on top of everything and a George Foreman or a grill.
I shlepped a cooler full of food through Arizona heat for 2 weeks and everything stayed frozen!
Another cool thing. Put the refrigerated items on top of the dry ice and the frozen stuff below and you will be set. The fridge items stay cold and the frozen stays frozen.

Tibors, a local butcher shop in Cleveland makes a great and spicy dried salami roll.  This lasts for weeks without any refrigeration.
+100 I've even had people ship me dried salami via UPS! ;D

also buy a microwave (from walmart or costco) if you are staying for more than a few days and you will be surprised how much you can make
What do you do w/ the microwave afterwards though? ;) ;) ;D ;D

Most hotels will give you a microwave upon request.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

As far as a Grill again Most of the time there is a Wal Mart or something like that to pick up a grill for cheap
Buy from Walmart for CHEAP? Can tell he isn't a DDFer...(see above) ;)

On target! Just borrow a grill from Wal-Mart and ur good to go. If they make issues returning it, try asking to exchange, which is easier, and then go to the next wal-mart and return ur brand new grill without an issue. Yeah, the thrill of being a "yeshiva guy". We love this game!

You can do that, but you always wanna have granola bars, a real filling and pretty healthy snack!
