Aladdins, i love this place! I get take out from here all the time, their salads are really good, and I mean REALLY good. And its very nice coming here in the summer, because it is set right along the canal and is very picturesque.
DiBella's old fashioned submarine sandwiches are some of the best I have ever had. And I am not saying that just because my niece is related to the owner.
From 10am to 9pm you can walk into this shop and find it neat and clean and the servers are ready and smiling to serve you. You can choice from 8 different types of meats (some hot and some cold) or from tuna or veggie salads for the non-meat eaters. There are a dozen different extras you can add to the sandwich in any combination you want. You can select from three different sizes depending on your belt size and your budget. They also provide four different types of bread including whole grain varieties.
All this and a nice place to sit and eat for only $4 to $7 per sandwich.
It's good food at a good price.
So you just got into town after a long drive and you really don't feel like dressing up for dinner.
Call Pontillos (number is below) and order pizza, chicken wings, sub sandwiches, calzones, salads and open faced sandwiches. You can go pick it up or have it elivered to the motel lobby.
There's nothing like pizza and wings while laying on a motel bed watching HBO.
Relax and let them do all the work!
By the way, Pontillos has the best pizza; thick crust; great secret sauce; plenty of chesse; lots of topping choices.... pizza and wings for one person is about $10 with coupon. All the motels have coupons in their room folders or the daily newspaper.
Mark's Pizza is a fairly popular one in the area (they should be; they have enough ads on TV).
If you are feeding a bunch of friends, they have a Jumbo Special: 32 large slice sheet pizza and 36 pieces of chicken wings for $30 pus tax.
If you are in your motel room and don't feel like going out to eat, then just call Mark's and they deliver a pizza, wings and soft drink for $12, plus $2 delivery. (enough to feed three people).
If you don't feel like pizza, then how about a calzone for $5 or a Philly Steak Sandwich for $4.50 or a fish or chicken dinner for $7 (with roll, fries and salad). For vegetarians they have several salad choices and tuna fish meals.
You don't have to love beef to eat here but it helps if you do because they have a great beef menu. Cheapest is Filet Mignon for $20 all the way up to Porterhouse for $45 (and that is per person). Huge portions of meat cooked just the way you like it.
If you aren't into steaks that evening, they do have Chicken Breast Lemon or Lobster or Scampi or Veal or Pork Chops. They are probably pretty good too (and have a hefty price to match) but I usually order steak at a steakhouse.
Throw in soup, salad, a bar drink and a cup of coffee and you are easily into 40$ per person at least. It is a classy place and the waiter was excellent and the food was delicious but our budget does not allow us to splurge like this except maybe once a year.
Early-bird special is the way to go at Schoen Place. You have to do the prime rib because that is what they do best; start with the Onion soup and compliment the meal with a little Irish coffee. And there goes $20, just like that. But it is well worth it.
The restaurant is all dark wood and a bit underlit. The table spacing is comfortable but the acoustics make conversation difficult when the place is busy.
The staff is great; very friendly, attentive to your needs and "the customer is always right".
The service is fairly quick even when it is busy and the food is cooked as ordered.
On Friday and Saturday evenings there is a bar crowd which adds to the over all noise so this is not a place for a romantic meal. But if you want some great prime ribs, then you must try here.
This is fine dining in the best sense of the words.
Velvet coverings; chandelliers; formal table settings.
Coat and tie are encouraged.
If you have to ask the price of things, then you should not be in this restaurant.
Appetizers can cost $10 per person.
Beef Wellington is $30. Rack of lamb is $32. A Pasta meal will cost you $25.
Mousse, Truffles, Baklava, Parfaits are just some of the fancy desserts.
They serve "light" meals (meaning smaller portions) for somewhat cheaper prices but it is still going to dent your wallet for $40 per person by the time you finish your last cup of coffee.
Favorite Dish: Beef Wellington is very good.
