Casual Italian Hits the Spot

We have taken our kids here a bunch of times, and it's always good. We've had pizza, pasta, meatballs, salads, eggplant, grinders, etc...can't go wrong. Basic good Italian food spot. Always a long wait on weekends so plan ahead.

My parents recommended this restaurant, so we stopped in for dinner. Don't be off-put by the prices - the portions are enormous. I don't consider myself a "light" eater, but I was still eating the leftovers for two days after the visit! The garlic bread appetizer was delicious. It's free, but you have to ask for it, as they're trying... More

We've driven by Joey Garlic's hundreds of times when visiting family in the area - on this trip, we decided to give the place a try. The simple, rustic decor is very welcoming; our server, Shannon, was terrific. There are some interesting and unusual offerings tucked among the more familiar fare (eggplant fries, meatball salad), and I chose the pork... More

Both were excellent but massive portions (be aware this was more than enough for main meal for 2). However we had also ordered the pizza which was also good. Really nice atmosphere and good food, friendly... More

Good food. Can get very busy. Wings are crispy and flavorful. Portions are huge. Pasta tastes fresh. Imaginative salad combinations (meatball salad). Never have any room left for dessert.

Obviously a popular place in the area, but the chicken parm had too much cheese and too little sauce. Not my favorite.

Grinders are very sloppy topped with loads of melted cheese. Chicken parm is of low quality chicken. My husband ordered hamburger med rare I said it is to raw bring him med. well and the waitress brought med rare because my husband did not tell her instead of me.
