On my first visit to The Meatball Shop, I ordered naked balls with polenta, a hero with three balls, and an ice cream sandwich. The naked balls I ordered were their special of the night, the jambalaya balls, filled with seafood and sausage and the hero sandwich I ordered had spicy pork balls. Everything was so amazingly delicious that I really couldn’t wait to return.

Last Friday, I returned and ordered another special – the buffalo chicken balls with homemade blue cheese sauce, Frank’s hot sauce, and celery on top of their special risotto (prosciutto was in the mix):


I also ordered the spicy pork meatball with provolone and classic tomato sauce on a whole wheat bun:


And since that didn’t fill me up, I ordered the spicy pork balls with pesto sauce and foccacia:


Everything was so delicious and better than the last – only complaints: 1. the bartender didn’t hear my date order wine three times (but then gave us free wine for our troubles) and 2. there wasn’t enough sauce on the hero and it was a tad dry (also probably because we ordered the whole wheat bun instead of the white bread). I guess my last complaint would be the fact that I want to eat meatballs all the time now.

The waits are usually pretty long if you want to sit at a table, but seriously, eat at the bar or get takeout – just as good and practically no wait!

Did you really eat all of that yourself? Impressive.

I went a while back and I got the same order of spicy pork balls with pesto and shared an order of white beans and was STUFFED.
