Just when you thought the Turtlegram couldn’t possibly get any more pathetic, they completely copied Worcester Magazine’s “best of Worcester County” contest:
The only difference is that they didn’t have a “best blog” category, because they know we’d destroy everyone that they employ.
Anyway, not only did they blatantly rip of WoMag, they found a way to basically make it political. You can’t write in your answers. You have to pick one of the choices they give you. And basically The Boynton is a choice in every single category. Same with the Niche Hospitality restaurants. Not that those places aren’t great (they are great), but they’re not exactly giving the little guy a fighting chance.
Anyway, all you need to know about how fake and bootleg this “contest” is that Belsito’s is not even listed as an option under best sandwich:
Panera freaking Bread. They have chain restaurants on their bootleg list. This is how low the Turtlegram has sunk. They’re promoting chain restaurants over local businesses. The 99 Restaurant is a choice in a couple categories. I shit you not. The 99. It would be one thing if we were making a list of the best places to eat in Auburn or Leominster, because those places pretty much only have chain restaurants. But there’s a big world out there in Worcester County, and we can do better than chain restaurants.
Look, New England Roast Beef is pretty good. I like the pizza at Steve’s but to be honest……little overrated with the sandwiches. Bushel n’ Peck and Regatta are Worcester staples, but they’re both known of their Italian subs, which are 20 pounds of bread decorated with some salami and cheese.
Only people who don’t live in Worcester would think any of those places is better than Belsito’s:
Just look at that thing. It’s an East Side work of art. I wanna stuff my face with my computer right now. It’s just the right ratio of meats to cheese to pickles to mayo to their world famous Italian dressing. Only someone who was completely out of touch with where Worcester people get their sandwiches would think that Belsito’s wasn’t easily the top sandwich place. Naturally the local “newspaper” wouldn’t know, since pretty much 95% of their “news” is just regurgitated AP stories that they paid someone else for the right to print. This is yet another example of why people come to Turtleboy Sports for the “real news.”
FYI, here’s the Top 5 Sandwich shops in Worcester County:
5. New England Roast Beef
4. Maury’s Delicatessen’s
2. Specialty Sandwich Shop (Holden)
That’s for Central Mass. But I will say this – It’s worth the three hours of your life to make a trip to Lee (exit 2 on the Mass Pike) to get a sandwich at the Housatonic Cafe. It’s an orgasmic experience.
P.S. Here’s their choices for pizza:
Corner Grille is the most overrate yuppies pizza in the world. No offense, but they know it’s true. It’s not real pizza. Steve’s is fine, Volturno is fancy, Antonio’s is fantastic, and the Boynton is phenomenal. But here’s the official Turtleboy 5 pizza shops in Worcester County:
4. Newton Square Pizza
2. Anzio’s (Grafton)
