Hole In The Wall Food Court
I read about this place in the blog Bitchin' In The Kitchen (http://rosieskitchen.blogspot.com), so I had to go try it. I had never been on this part of McKinley Ave before - you may not have either. There is not much reason to go there.
Just south of the old Spiro's location (and just north of the new Spiro's location) lies the San Margherita Market. This is a full service convenience store with the usual assortment of stuff from all the major food groups - sugar, fat, salt, nicotine, alcohol, caffeine, cholesterol, etc. Not a health food store, but they do carry live bait.
In the back of this c-store/ beer carryout is a self proclaimed food court. The food is actually pretty good, portions are huge, and the prices are dirt cheap. They serve mostly sandwiches and some fried food items - wings, shrimp, and eggrolls. I tried the egg rolls with the sweet and sour dipping sauce, and while they weren't quite as crispy as freshly prepared ones, they were darn good and very filling. Two of those was almost a meal.
But oh no, I had to try a sandwich, too. Be warned, they are huge. I got the medium - 7 inches - and it had to weigh over a pound. I asked the nice preparer to fix it the way most people like it. It came on a big hoagie bun, slathered in mustard, some cheese (provolone?), onions, hot peppers, a pound of thinly sliced spicy polish sausage, topped with a red hot sauce that has earned my respect. Fifteen minutes late, I am still sweating.
I could hardly eat the sandwich it was so large. I was dropping pieces everywhere, and my dog enjoyed the meal as much as me. I couldn't finish, and was way glad I didn't order a regular.
2 eggrolls and a one polish, $7.25. Such a deal. Then you can buy whatever beverage you want from the front of the store.
