Owner Chris Bailey named Blocky's Eatery after his grandfather, a Pennsylvanian machinist who sparked his passion for cooking. As a boy, Bailey remembers visiting his grandfather at the local Eagles club and making food for the men while they played cards. These memories were a major inspiration for Blocky's, a place where "everything is geared to someone who has 10 minutes for lunch."
Ingredients are sourced from local farmers whenever possible and the recipes, much like the family's pet tortoise, date back three generations. The cooks at Blocky's top pizzas with 22 possible toppings—including prosciutto, sun-dried tomato, and fresh garlic—and bake house-made bread to accompany pasta dishes.
