While I enjoy cooking there are times I enjoy someone else cooking the meal. So when my husband said "lets go to Grandpa Tony's" I said yes.We love the baked spaghetti and steak sandwich. It was hard to choose so we got both and shared. Good food good service and atmosphere. Thank you Grandpa Tony's for the night off. Love... More

This is the place to go if you crave the perfect pizza or just have a hankering for a good Italian meal. All of the entrees come with the famous house salad, known for years as the "wop' salad the a secret dressing made from oil and vinegar and spices you just can't identify but that are nevertheless delish!

Food is quite good and the steaks are just as asked. They also sell their own beer. Their pizzas looked awesome.

We walked a mile from our hotel to try this place out. Lots of choices on the menu. The lasagna was good and the cheesy bread was fantastic. The cheese sticks were ok. Small side salad was decent sized. It was a good place to check out as out of town visitors but we probably won't come back just because... More

My wife and I stopped by location because of the number of local cars in the parking lot, generally a good indication of good food and we weren't disappointed. We stopped for breakfast and were very glad we were hungry because their portions are enormous and hot! Outside, it's a dated building but you're not there for looks, just great... More

My coworker and I come here at least 3 times a month, usually to get nachos. The ones we received Friday were absolutely horrible. The nacho chips were like wet noodles and the cheese was a "watery" mess on the bottom of the plate. The waitress offered to bring us another plate, however, our lunch was almost over, so we...
