Our family loves coming here! It's our "go to spot" when we are in a pickle or simply craving Joey Garlic's. The portions are huge and there is something for everyone and you'll leave with leftovers for possibly two meals, that's how big their portions are!!! The eggplant fries are a must.

If you are looking for a quick meal with huuuuge portions, that is reasonably priced then look no further. There is something on the menu for everyone. The food is decent and the alcoholic beverages aren't bad either. This is my go to place when I want to eat out but I'm not sure what I'm in the mood for.... More

Visiting family brought us to this little gem. Great diverse menu, adult bevvys were fun and tasty. I had the meatball salad, it was definitely worth it, I'd order again . Included pics, as you can see we had to try a Lil of everything. Eggplant fries, fried ribs, burger, pasta, and more. Well worth a stop.

The service is very good,the food portions are more than any other restaurants. The flavors of the food are a good Italian blend for every dish. Our likes are broccoli and sausage. Seafood pizza.

Great Italian food,pizza and grinders. Meals can feed two people. Try the eggplant fires appetizer! e prepared to wait as it is always crowded. Separate take out pickup is convenient and a great option.

Thank Mike S
