Went through the drive-thru today on a business trip past town, you had a meatball sub and a drink. The food was good, the drink was good, the breadsticks were awesome, but for some reason they did not provide you any napkins to clean up...More

This visit, they were back to making the breadsticks as wonderfully as they used to and that drew us in years ago. I ordered the ultimate sampler, which had lasagna, penne with meat sauce, spaghetti with a meatball, alfredo with linguine and of course, breadsticks!...More

I love fazolis for lunch. They have a $5 lunch that comes with two items and a drink. It's perfect portions and great price. If the breadsticks don't come out often enough the counter staff will give you as many as you want. For a...More

Was very disappointed on this visit. Not enough staff. Service was slow. Restaurant was dirty. Lots of tables with food and dishes on them waiting to be cleaned up. Took forever to get food. Extra breadsticks, which admittedly we go through a lot of, were...More
