This is a good joint. I use the word joint to show my affection.
The house salad is ginormous and comes slathered in meats and sharp cheeses. super unhealthy and delicious.
The linguine with clam sauce comes with real clams and the red sauce is a touch spicy.
Meatball sandwich comes flattened so the balls dont roll off the bun.
Wings come regular or home made bbq and fried or baked. we went with bbq baked and enjoyed them. meaty. no celery or blue cheese, but it didnt really need it since it wasn’t so spicy.
Chicken parm could have used a touch more sauce, but giant and tasty. and finally the sausage sandwich was sweet and came with a hot cherry pepper on the side if you wanted fire.
all in all good stuff. they deliver. for dine in they are cash only but have an atm on premise.

Dinardo’s “award winning” seafood restaurant was a trip back in time. A time when waitresses cursed, beer was american, and flies were part of the ambiance. Or so they tell me.
needless to say, i loved it.
a photo book shows the love.
ps sarcasm aside, the fries were actually really good.
ps 2: i grew a really large heirloom tomato that day. bigger than a human man hand.
I went to a small farmers market on Chestnut between 9th and 10th today. There were 2 farm stands, a CSA pickup, a blood pressure/general wellness check up table, and an annoying Greenpeace dude (bringing me way down).
