I don’t believe Sal makes his own sausage. However, I would call the restaurant and ask.

We don't have a set dress code. Some people dress up, some more casual, but tasteful.

Sal & Judy’s is one of those gourmet restaurants with a neighborhood feel. The simple rural restaurant is rich in family tradition and history, from its unchanging menu to its walls lined with old black and white photos from the Impastato home in Sicily and of Chef Sal’s early days in the industry. The clientele is significantly locals and loyally returning customers, some of whom have been coming back for over 30 years. His customers just cannot seem to get enough of Chef Sal’s Creole Italian dishes.
