Let me start by telling you what the family ordered: I got the ROASTED GARLIC CHICKEN, my wife got CHICKEN PARMESAN, my kids got the child portions of ALFREDO and NOODLES. Each order came with a single breadstick. You order at a counter and your food is prepared (presumably) fresh and brought out when ready. We were there on a... More

Chicken Parmesean is a composite of fettucine alfredo and chicken parm. This is all tossed together. The chicken is sparse and small bites. Lots of noodles and the dish could use a little more tomato sauce. The shrimp scampi has lots of noodles and the sauce is little oily. There are five or six small shrimp. The foods are filling...

I go with the fettuccini alfredo southwest spicy style with cheese bread. The spiciness is just right and has a nice kick. We do carryout and the family has plenty to eat and always enjoy the meal. A full and half size order are available. Pepsi products with dessert options too. Service for carryout has always been good.

As someone with a gluten allergy I love finding restaurants that actually have a gluten free menu beyond salad. All of their pastas are fabulous and such a generous helping for the price. Do the pick two pasta and salad for a more reasonable amount of food. I really enjoy the cranberry walnut salad. I obviously haven't tried the breadsticks... More

Great family restaurant with casual atmosphere. Order at the counter upon entry and steaming hot fresh pasta is delivered to your table mere minutes later. Ordering fresh entrees is much better than the buffet option as those items are usually mostly empty and lacking the sauce that makes Newman's dishes so great.

We tried Newman's for the first time and did it carryout style We went with fetuccini alfredo with chicken with some garlic cheese sticks. The pasta was good as was the alfredo. The cheese bread was unique in that the cheese was inside the bread stick. We all enjoyed the meal and will try Newman's again.

We don't get there very often, but the food rarely disappoints. My favorites are the pesto and the spicy udon noodles, but I enjoyed a lot of other dishes that were really good as well. The buffet never seems to taste quite as good as the dishes made to order, but it is a nice deal and you get to... More

It is a rare occasion that I order from Newman's and actually get what I ordered just as I ordered it. There is always something wrong or missing. Once it was burnt pot stickers. Another time it was beef when I ordered chicken. I have to admit though, when they get it right, they get it really right. I really... More

Have been there several times. I usually order Pasta Rosa and it tastes good every single time. The ingredients are fresh. The price is great.
