I have driven by this place my entire life not knowing what was inside. It was not until recently that people would be raving about the Pliny the Elder being on tap. Only select restaurants/bars are able to get Pliny on tap, so that obviously struck a chord.
The place is literally a deli. There is limited seating and it’s sporadically laid out inside, but manageable if you wait around on a busy day or have a mule sent out while someone waits in line to order. Best bet would be to go on a weekday. The staff and kitchen really send out that family vibe. They’l l spot out first-timers, and definitely help with the recommendations. Some may find the small business feel intimidating, but they are all really very nice people.
There,s one large cooler off to the left opposite from the kitchen, and a small cooler of bottled beer right next to the counter where you order food. I ordered the Rib Eye Steak and a whole serving of Ravioli with the House sauce (which was recommended over the originally wanted Meat Sauce, and there were no regrets). The ravioli was amazing. The steak was cooked to perfection. And the beer was cold. I would definitely come back here after I accomplish something in my life again. Like, I dunno, finally get the Check Engine light fixed.
