Spaghetti, like a hammerhead shark, is rigid and boring until it’s submerged in water, at which point it quickly springs to life and develops a taste for swimmers. Celebrate this predatory noodle with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of Italian lunch fare at Spaghetti Eddie's in Glendora.
Spaghetti Eddie serves up savory New York–homestyle Italian fare, going beyond their namesake noodle with a plentiful lunch menu. Midday munchers spoon with cuddly italian wedding soup sporting baby meatballs, escarole, and orzo pasta ($6.99 for a bowl) and lubricate rusty finger joints with garlic puffs of crusty, oil-laced bread ($3.99). Carnivorous guests can carve into breaded veal parmigiana, served with spaghetti to fill bellies and practice tying half-hitches with flavor-sated tongues ($13.99). Lunch specials allow patrons to pick from four pastas, which are accompanied by minestrone soup or house salad, fresh-baked Italian bread, and a soft drink ($9.99–$12.99). Diners need not be worried about formal attire or servers that only speak in Byronic verse; Eddie's hearty menu and the friendly wait staff encourages a convivial, family-centered atmosphere.
Eddie's Pizzeria & Eatery
Eddie's Pizzeria & Eatery answers an ancient culinary dilemma: do we go out for pizza or stay in for Mom's meatloaf? Serving New World fare, the restaurant satisfies cravings in a single sweep. Even its pizzas champion this culinary marriage—New York–style pies arrive speckled with traditional toppings as well as premium options, such as rosemary ham. Yet, despite such culinary fusion, the pies never lose sight of their roots. Margherita pizza recalls the dish’s Italian heritage, whereas a 10-inch gourmet Bada Bing represents pizza’s modern stomping grounds with sausage, gorgonzola, and a mini “I Heart NY” shirt.
The menu also explores a large landscape of pasta entrees, from four-cheese ravioli to penne sautéed with chicken and mushrooms in a tomato-cream sauce. Meatier plates continue to span continents, with perennial favorite chicken parmesan prepped near Meatloaf Italiano, St. Louis ribs, and handcrafted Angus burgers. As patrons strip tangy wings bare, they can watch the venue's eight televisions, two of which boast 70-inch HD screens.
