This place is close to the house with really good food. The weekday specials are just a bonus when you see you bill at the end of a visit.

Our server was very knowledgeable. I had the eggplant parmigiana with spaghetti and it was the best I have ever eaten. Thick slices of Italian bread were delicious as well.

Finished with the sinful fried dough balls! Staff was friendly and resturant clean and bright. A must visit for anyone looking for a great meal, friendly service at... More

I had given this place rave reviews just a couple of years ago but since they changed ownership I have had some bad experiences. A few months ago I ordered the Caesar salad which had always been good in the past. This time the romaine was dark and tough and the dressing did not have it's usual fres taste. I... More

Won't be confused with a fine dinning experience on atmosphere alone,but, the food portions are generous and have great taste.You must try the fried calamara with the homemade bread. All appetizers are half -priced on Thursdays.Service is usually above average,but BYOB. Great place to dine early before a movie or trip to the Mall.

We visited BDIR for the first time this evening. It is a nice, casual place. We started with the calamari which was the best fried calamari we have had in a while. It was lightly battered and cooked perfectly. It was very tender and nicely seasoned. The salad wasn't anything special and the blue cheese dressing was prepackaged "Ken's" dressing.... More
