LaRosa’s Family Pizzeria has had the best dinner deal in town, for four decades. It is called “Spaghetti a Plenty” Nights. We decided to revisit this weekly special and see if it is still “bowling” folks over.
We found out, kids love it, grown ups love it.. so what’s going on here?
Oodles and oodles of noodles… enough for several Food Adventures, that’s what’s going on here. It is a chance to indulge at a nominal price.
Since the 1970’s LaRosa’s has been serving up the Monday and Tuesday “All-You-Can-Eat” Spaghetti deal for adults and for kids. The Big Ragu remembers those 70’s nights in Centerville and Lebanon taking advantage of the special treat. If you love pasta, this place has been the mecca for your craving at the beginning of each week. It is a tradition to “pig out” and loosen your belt after the meal….
Do you love your spaghetti with chunky marinara sauce, full of tomatoes? Or are you the meat sauce type, even loving a big old meatball in the middle of your spun noodles. This dinner has all the fixings and is crazy cheap. How Cheap? 99 cents cheap for kids and $5.19 for adults. From the Oregano to the Parmesan, this night will have you and your family dancing in your booth seats.
HERE’S THE SKINNY:
WHAT: “SPAGHETTI-A-PLENTY” NIGHTS at LaROSA’S PIZZERIA.. it’s ALL-U-CAN-EAT Spaghetti! Capeesh?
WHEN: MONDAY and TUESDAY’s from 4pm – close.
COST: 99cents for kids, $5.19 for adults. (Sometimes they charge you $1 for meat sauce)
Ok , so The Big Ragu, Hungry Jax and Chef House have super secret codes and we are gonna share with you the way to get the most of this special if you are a pasta lover. We will channel your inner Italian …especially like the Italian in us!
ROUND 1: DINNER SALAD – This isn’t your typical “side salad.” They are generous with shredded mozzarella, covering your mixed greens plate, and serving your favorite dressing on the side. Dig it, it is cold, refreshing and delicious. Even served with an olive or 2, make sure you shake, shake shake some of that Parmesan cheese on top.
ROUND 2: SPAGHETTI WITH TOMATO SAUCE: Order this first. A big portion, how we like it, with a LOT of sauce. Buddy LaRosa’s own family recipe of sauce, that has stood the test for 6 decades. Ask for the TEXAS TOAST here and work it into your noodle spinning. Did we forget to mention.. sprinkle the oregano, hot pepper, and Parmesan cheese on your “Sketty Mountain.”
ROUND 3: SPAGHETTI with MEAT SAUCE: Finish strong, even asking for a meatball in the middle. They serve this and other “refills” as half portions. So hey, deal with it… meaty, so good. Ask for the BREADSTICKS option on this round, so you take advantage of all the amenities
**NOTE: Your kids don’t like sauce? No problem! They have a butter sauce available, so the noodles are served plain… go ahead, if you want it this way, put your “lunch hooks” in the air and wave…
That’s our system, after this you are on your own. You could keep going, ordering more servings or eat forkfuls off your kids plates and a pound of spaghetti like Hungry Jax. Another option is spill half of it down your chest like The Big Ragu, leaving stains as memories of past Food Adventures.
Want something besides spaghetti? Well we have a few patented “Must Eats” that you want to sink your teeth into. And away we go ….
MUST EATS: (BESIDES SPAGHETTI A PLENTY)
— PEPPERONI PIZZA: Why just pepperoni? Because it is the pizza that put Kings Island on the International food map. Come on, the pizza tastes so good. Whether you are sitting in a wet bathing suit on a bench after “Waterworks” water park, or in a booth with your favorite pizza pal.
— GARLIC FRIES: Dripping with freshly minced garlic and butter, what’s not to love. Your breath might be rank, but your mouth will be smiling.
— LASAGNA: A brick of lasagna, smothered in sauce and cheese. Try it and get lost in gooey, cheesey, saucy heaven. A labor of love, brought to you by Buddy LaRosa.
But this week it was all about the spaghetti. It was about fork spinnin, sauce drippin’, bread dippin’ good eats. “Spaghetti A Plenty” is a CHEAP, fun way to get the family together. It has been going on for 40 years.. why don’t you stop at LaRosa’s Pizzeria and see why ? See you at tables….
