Great Meatball Hero in Northern NJ?

suzannecar3 Nov 25, 2012 09:06 AM

Hi. I am new to the area and wondering in the land of a thousand mom and pop italian restaurants and pizzerias... are there any good meatball heros? I am finding most of these small restaurants make their meatballs hard as a rock and they are not moist on the inside.
I live near Paramus... but willing to travel a little bit.

    Pompilio's in Westwood. Italian touch in Washington Township on Pascack Road across from that strip mall w A&P and the movie theatre. I miss the food in the 201.

      Ken's Deli in Hillsdale makes a mean meatball hero. Great meatloaf, too!

          I have not been to in years...and since the relocation to the new location, but Sanducci's in River Edge on Kinderkamack used to make their own and i found them to be pretty good when I used to go there....I believe they now have both a restaurant and take-out pizzeria available adjacent to each other.
