“Alright I guess”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

A little pricey for a place that hasn't spent a dime on paint in 30 years. Don't mind paying just clean it up a little.

“great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

A worcester Icon, located in the historic Italian (Shrewsbury St.) section of Worcester. The second Best meatballs I ever tasted only my Mothers are better, She sicilan. The Clam sauce is to die for, and the Pizza is worth the trip. The prices are incredible, very reasonable. We live about 30 miles away, but try to visit at least twice a month.

“Hasn't changed in over 30 yrs. Great Pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

The last time I went to the Wonder Bar in Worcester was when I was pregnant with my son, that was 17 yrs ago. The place hasn't change. It's a little hole in the wall off Shrewsbury Street in Worcester and still did not disappoint.

Formica table tops, dark paneling on the walls, a small bar but don't let the decor or lack thereof, make you turn away. The food is awesome!!!

We ordered 2 beers, one on tap, one bottle, 2 sodas, 1 side salad, 1 Meatball sub, Order of fries, 2 pizza's, eggplant and meatball with tax and Tip $60 for 4 of us. The pizza is really really good, thin crust and flavorful. We went on a Friday night, the place was packed.

Just remember CASH ONLY, no checks or credit cards. They have an ATM in front of the bar. The seating is tight and cozy, but that's what it makes it what it is. Old world charm. Looks seedy on the outside and you don't want to approach it, but do, you won't be disappointed. Tons of families in there, large groups etc. Beer by the pitcher too.

Saw the chicken, broccoli ziti go by and it was huge!!! I think for $15, so worth it and believe it or not, that is what i had 17 yrs ago, and had plenty of leftovers to take home.

Enjoy the wonderbar I've been going since I was a kid.

“Uniques”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

This is a small place with a very unique dining experience. They are known for there brick oven pizza which is delivered to your server from a dumb waiter.

“Nice place for creative potables”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

A place to people watch and maybe meet someone new - or just bring a friend you haven't seen in a while.
