A Long-Time Neighborhood Staple: Nellie's Restaurant

Nellie’s has been in my eating-in-a-restaurant-life ever since I was younger and the establishment was called “Stasney’s.” Nellie’s Place is a welcoming restaurant with a roomy dining room that boasts wood tables, chairs and booths while shouting “homestyle” through its decor. Adjacent to the main room is a long area featuring a warm, dimly lit bar that is often packed with regulars enjoying a baseball game and a cold beer. The employees and the patrons are friendly, and children are welcome to eat here as well. Casual and inviting, Nellie’s Place has found a formula that allows it to stand the test of time.

One of the big draws is the delicious thin crust pizza that makes other bar pies feel ashamed just to be. With a crispy crust, salty cheese, and fresh sauce, the pizza is one of my son’s favorites. He orders a regular and the pie is delivered to the table and stationed on a pizza stand. Soon, the pizza is devoured and the crumbs that remain are a testament to the pizza’s goodness.

I’ve always enjoyed the Italian fare—the lasagna, for example. It’s comforting and screams heart-attack-on-a-plate. The French Dip roast beef sandwich is another one of my favorites—it’s rare, think cut roast beef piled high on a long roll. The au jus is warm and just right. If you order an entree, you can help yourself to the salad bar, which is pretty perfunctory. However, you can stock up on some cheese and bread there, which complements your burger, soup, or sandwich well.

Nellie’s Place definitely gets crowded, so it’s good to go for an early bird dinner rather than waiting for the throngs of regulars to show up. Nellie’s does have a parking lot, which helps when you have to wait for your table.

Nellie’s fare is definitely what you would label as standard comfort food. It’s made with heart and soul, and it keeps bringing in the loyal and new customers. With decent prices, yummy pizza, and homestyle ambiance, Nellie’s Place is worth a visit. You may find you become one of the newly-christened regulars yourself.

Lasagna

This is my splurge meal when I want some comfort food. It is quite salty and delicious, with just enough cheese to make me feel satisfied. The sauce, or “gravy” adorning the noodles is tart and tomato-y.

Pretty Good!

Nellie's burgers are always good, sometimes GREAT. From time to time though I'm disappointed as the beef isn't as good as what it has been. The roll it comes on changes from time to time too. I think they need to work on standardizing…
