when we go to the meatball shop, we generally have to wait 20 minutes or so for a table. it’s all good though, you can get a pabst from the tap and chill up front until your table’s ready. this gives you time to fully digest the way the menu works as well. it can be tricky for rookies so don’t be afraid to ask questions. first, you pick your meatball type (beef, pork, chicken, vegetable or special). next, you pick what kind of sauce you want (classic tomato, spicy meat, mushroom gravy, parmesan cream or pesto). my fave combination is the vegetable balls with spicy meat sauce, sooo good. finally, you pick how you’d like the meatballs to be served. by themselves, on a slider bun, on a hero, over pasta or maybe over some fresh greens? so many options. once you’ve nailed down your meatball selections, pick out a few sides as well. i love the polenta, it’s smooth, buttery and feels like down home cookin’. save a little room for dessert too. how much fun is it to pick your own cookie type and ice cream flavor?? so fun and so tasty.
definitely check out the meatball shop and don’t shy away if there’s a line. belly on up to the bar, grab a drink and wait your turn. it’s well worth it~
