        Hey Meatball - at College and Crawford next to the service station, south side. Opening in a month or so as the chatter has it.

            Not sure if you're joking or not, regardless that made me laugh.

              Seriously - the name is, allegedly, "Hey Meatball". I wonder if they'll have big Archie Bunker recliners to sit in while enjoying the offerings.

              No offense intended. Mind you, as an insult, it's one that should be resurrected.

                Archie Bunker was "Meathead". That shows you how old I am!

                  Ah. Now I stand corrected.

                  I guess Hey Meathead wouldn't really be a name that'll draw the crowds in.

                  1. re: sloweater

                    You are old. Rob Reiner, the son-in-law, was meathead. That's what Archie called him.

                    Okay, that is too funny - I was trying to figure out why you were being so cranky in your earlier note. I wonder if this is going to be like The Meatball Shop in New York.
