Not Very Kosher at Shiloh

Shiloh, New Jersey, that is:

As you head down Route 49 through Shiloh and toward Bridgeton, a massive billboard on the side of the road alerts drivers to an upcoming food destination — Hopewell Sub and Pizza...on Shiloh Pike (Route 49) where they’ve been ever since. They offer a full menu of subs, pizza, stromboli, wraps — and of course, cheesesteaks — but they’re known for their Bellybuster burger...We ordered two whole cheesesteaks —one with fried onions and American cheese, and the other was their pizza steak with their homemade marinara sauce.

Manager Josie Williams was behind the grill when we were there. She uses an 8 ounce portion of frozen, sliced, pre-marinated sirloin per half cheesesteak. About three thick slices of American cheese are laid on top of the steak and the bread — from Terrigno’s Bakery in Bridgeton — is placed on top briefly which give the edges a little crispiness. Then, they add an au jus around the pile of meat, which makes steam to help melt the cheese and give an extra juiciness to the steak.
If that menu upsets you, try fish, at Shiloh, Illinois:

The annual fishing derby will be held July 4 at 3 p.m. at Shiloh Pond. Register at the north end of Shiloh Pond for a chance to catch this year’s big fish. You must be present to collect your prize. The final weigh-in will be at 6 p.m.

And there's this, Shiloh Sanctuary goes on the market:

The ocean-view Shiloh Sanctuary, developed by Robert D. Van Kampen, founder of the Chicago investment-banking firm Van Kampen Merritt Inc., and used as both a family retreat and tree farm management center, is being offered in a sealed bid auction by Realty Marketing/Northwest, in affiliation with Windermere Western View Properties. Sealed bids are due July 23, 2013. The 320-acre Shiloh Sanctuary is located near Oceanside, 15 miles west of Tillamook on a hilltop, with spectacular views to Cape Meares, Cape Lookout, the Pacific Ocean and Tillamook Bay.

Architectural timber-style hand-crafted construction has been used for the compound, which has a 8,945-square foot timber management center that is also used for the owner residence; a 5,427-square foot caretaker home, and 3,885-square foot equipment and maintenance shop, all built in 1990.
If that isn't enough, how about the Flea Circus from Shiloh, PA?
