Looking at restaurant reviews for local places many talked about the Riggies. I ordered the chicken Riggies and was disappointed. It is chicken with rigatoni, olives, mushrooms and hot peppers. Hot peppers are a regular item added to food in this area. It had a...More

We had dinner here on a Thurs night. It has pretty much a sports bar feel. The special was clams and cans, you got clams and beer in cans for a low price. I opted for the homemade fettuccini with buffalo flavored alfredo and shrimp....More
