Ferraro’s

Italian Restaurant

4480 Paradise Road (ph: 364-5300)

A longtime friend to GT, we heard that a meatball burger was part of the Happy Hour menu. And my wallet lives for HH bargains.

The Ferraro family was so kind as to set me up at a primo spot outside since the weather was perfect. And so was the burger. Meat balls to die for! The fries were very crispy and the highest quality. Loads of refills on drinks. Super service with the Italian touch.

One problem only, and that was solved. Don’t pick up the burger. It will fall back on the plate. Cut up the roll and treat the burger like a meatball sub. I do prefer holding the burger, but that’s just me. For taste, out of this world.
