We waited 40 minutes for food that was served cold by very rude and pushy staff. The restaurant itself is okay, but a bit dirty and run down.

The food is the worst part, fried dough filled with cheese and toppings that has no flavor whatsoever and left me feeling sick in the stomach for hours later.

If you're the sort of person who enjoys flavorless, bad food just because its fried and has cheese, you may enjoy this, but when I'm getting junk food I like it to taste good at least. Will NEVER eat here again and will make sure anyone else I know does not either.

We found this joint when searching for something different in ways of foods. We first tried their pizza which was decent but our favorite is ponza rottas..almost like a calzone but deep fried. This is a must try as you can customize them to your liking! Just be warned it is normally an hour wait for carryout on most weekends. Also there was mention they only take cash but they now take Mc/Visa. Also make sure everything you ordered is in bag, as twice things were not in the bag after paying for them.

Jimmy's Grotto was started over 50 years ago by Jim Rucci It was in a small building with no seating. You almost always had to stand in line to get his homemade Italian sausage on a bun with green peppers on top. about 20 years ago, new owners,new building. The food , is not very good.

Deep-fried pizza fixings in a pastry? Had to try it and was delicious. We ordered one deluxe and shared it along with a mix of fried onion and green pepper rings. Took the order to a nearby park and enjoyed the meal there. Yes, you do need cash and the place is simple, but clean and roomy enough if you want to eat in. We're glad we were introduced to the ponza rottas!
