Nino's Jr in Oakhurst
I used to have a client in Oakhurst, so for lunch I stopped by Nino's three times for a bite to eat. I tried three different items and was not impressed with their quality or cooking style. I remember having separately on each occasion, sausages....eggplant.....and fish. All three were fair at best and I also remember ordering as a side their Arancini and the rice balls being undercooked and greasy on two occasions. For me it was three strikes.
I do not know if it is close to you or even still in business, but I recall Taliercio's in Middletown being better.....but admittedly it's been more than two years and things could have changed dramatically for both in that time.
Nino's subs are excellent, great bread, but I've never had their other food.
Taliercio's is very good. We've used them a number of times over the years and have always been happy. (But don't believe their heating instructions. It usually takes a little more than they recommend.) If you go with them, make sure you get an order of their Chicken Cordon Bleu balls. They're a relatively new appy for them. The problem is, though, once you have one, you won't want to share.
Did Take Out From Nino's today - Beach Picnic.
The people here are GREAT! Super kind and accomodating!
The nicest women and they have PASSION for their food - Just love that!
Break Stick - Their Italian Baquette Good
Made Eggplant Sandwiches with their Signature Eggplant dish - Very good - This was in oil and gravy - heavy yes, it would have been amazing converted into a tapenade but was not at home.
Italian Tuna Salad - Very Good
Tomato and Mozzarella Salad - Good
Foccacia with Green and Red Peppers - Garlic - Tomato - excellent dough, topping ok
Hand Pie filled with Broccoli Rabe - Onions - Pine Nuts and Olives - good
If I am in the area would return for some of that eggplant.
Tried going to Taliercio's last week and there was a line out the door. Never seen anything like that - it must be good?!? - will try again.
Random Side Note: The sign above the store reads Gourmet Food, kinda nestled in the strip mall - not that obvious from Rt 35 South.
