I grew up in Hightstown NJ. Just about a 15-mile drive to Great Adventure and a 40-minute drive to the beaches of the Jersey Shore, two places I spent most of my childhood summers.

To this day, there is nothing like a Midway hot grilled sausage link, split in half and cradled by a soft long roll, layered with peppers and onions.
