Goomba's has some serious eats

There's this little place on route 309 next to a beer distibutor... it's called Goomba's.

It's all takeout but they have a table and chairs out front if you can't make it home, they deliver too.

You walk in and the sights and smells transport you to 9th Street... they deliver on their statement of "bringing South Philly to the Burbs" in so many ways

there's all kinds of house made marinated olives, cheeses, peppers, salamis right there when you walk in the door.

if you like fried hots, you'll LOVE their fried hots... they're nicely done, soft but not mushy, don't know what they do to them to bring up their natural sweetness, and then they bite you with their heat....

their hoagies are served on Sarcone's style rolls, with the sesame seeds, they're not too dense but not that fluffy stuff that so many places in the burbs will put a hoagie on...nice bite and chew to it (very important)

We've gotten food there a few times and I'm surprised it's not reviewed, so here goes:

Wings: get either the Spicy Garlic or Chef's special Chinese Style, they're both awesome!

Chinese are this nice balance of sweet/savory dark mahogany wings with just a hint of some heat... they're sticky, messy and delicous

Spicy garlic are crispy and deliver exactly as the name says, a nice kick and that wonderful fresh garlic that perfumes the skin and meat...

their wings are always done just right too. Never soggy or underdone. (nothing worse than a half cooked chicken wing, hey' it's happened to me at other places)

Sangiches (sorry, Sandwhiches)
anything with the chicken cutlet on it

they hand bread chicken cutlets and cook them to order...they're delicous! HAND BREADED COOKED TO ORDER, try getting that at any other pizza/sandwich shop around town! GET THE CHICKEN CUTLET ALLA RABE
the provolone is the REAL stuff too, it stings your tongue a little... they don't load it on, they're smart... just enough to flavor, not over power,

some of my other sandwich faves are The Godfather - lil' Santino - and the combolino

Oh, and the Meatball Parm....
They have some good meatballs! They taste like they're home made... I cannot say enough about the meatball parm except that maybe I love their meatball parm as much as I love their chicken cutlet with rabe' and provolone...

I've never had any of their pasta dishes, but I think they're on our horizon soon... they sound awesome and all of their food is really top quality ingredients, so we may have a hidden gem for something other than hoagies and sandwiches

I've also never had their pizza but they have some pretty tasty sounding combo's if you're into adventerous toppings!
