Last Friday after the Doodah Parade in Ilion, some of us were quite hungry (yes, I am pretty much always hungry, what’s your point?). We adjourned to Salvatore’s in Herkimer for some food and drinks.
I think the waitress remembered me from other visits, because she asked right away if I was thinking of a glass of wine. I ordered Pinot Grigio.
“And a glass of water?” she asked. It’s nice to be a regular.
I ordered a cheeseburger (I know the headline says “pizza,” but I wasn’t thinking about alliteration when I ordered). I asked if I could substitute pasta salad for french fries. I could. Steven got fries with his burger, so I got to try a few anyways (diet? What diet?). I also tried a couple of sweet potato fries that one of our friends ordered. Yum! Other friends got pizza and wings. We have enjoyed Salvatore’s pizza and wings many times, usually getting them delivered.
We ended up pushing a couple of tables together as more friends showed up after we had sat down. Nobody minded. The dining room was not busy, perhaps because it was later than the normal dinner hour. The place continued to do a large take-out business, as usual. It sure is good food!
We always have a good time when we eat at Salvatores, and have a great meal when we order delivery. Salvatore’s is located at 650 1/2 W. German St., Herkimer, NY, phone number 315-866-2600.
