The menu includes a spicy meatball pizza with hot peppers ($7.99+), drumsticks in a dry rub, buffalo, or barbecue sauce ($8.99), and an Italian beef sandwich ($9.99).
A cartoon meatball scowls beneath a Roman soldier's helmet, clutching a spear and looking defensive. Maybe he voted against the Pax Romana. Or maybe he knows he's about to be made into a spicy meatball pizza—one of Mad Meatball's many dishes centered around their homemade spheres of beef.
The meatball caricature is just the newly opened under new management restaurant's logo, but its fiery spirit is indicative of the menu's newly expanded, daring spin on Italian food. The traditional meatball sub becomes three bite-sized sliders, while pepper rings are coated in bread crumbs, fried a golden brown, and served with a side of house marinara sauce. Diners enjoy these dishes, as well as a wide assortment of pizza pies—from veggie to buffalo bacon ranch—in the spacious dining room or outside on the brick patio.
