I stopped by my favorite sub shop/restaurant yesterday for a quick "snack" to feed my ever growing intestinal tapeworm. It had been a while since I had been to Toody's in Wakefield. For various reasons I just haven't been eating at Toody's of late.
For various reasons I haven't been eating out anywhere for that matter! Yesterday though I resolved that this must and will of course change for a couple of reasons. First, Toody's now has pizza and it is DAMN GOOD pizza. Now I have known about the pizza for a while. I have dined on more than a few of them as well, but I am just getting around to writing about it. Only complaint I have about Toody's Pizza is, is that they don't deliver. Petty I know, but the pizza is DAMN good. My favorite your ask? Pepperoni, Mushroom, Garlic and Sausage with extra cheese.

Second reason Toody's now serves Beer and Wine..I have no idea what the prices are for a class of wine or a bottle of beer.To be honest I didn't look, but I strongly suspect it is very reasonable. Having a beer with your pizza is as American as having a glass wine with your pasta. More importantly though and with all sincerity, Congrats to Toody's on securing the Beer and Wine License. This is a very very BIG STEP. Toody's can no longer be considered a little place that invented the SUBMARINE SANDWHICH. Toody's is now a full fledged restaurant!

I stopped by Toody's AGAIN, to inhale some wonderful food and I noticed a very classy 50 inch or so looking PLASMA TV hanging on the wall for people to enjoy while eating. NICE TOUCH!! Anyway in the above post I mentioned the Toody's now has Beer and Wine but I wasn't sure on the cost. While at Toody's I checked! Beer runs between $3.50 and $5.00 a bottle depending on the brand, import vs domestic. Wine runs $6.50 per glass. All appear to be top shelf brands. Just an FYI.

Well the surprises keep coming at Toody's!!

I didn't catch this the other day but Toody's is now serving some delicious breakfast items such as Croissants or Bagels with your choice of Cheese, Bacon, Ham or Sausage or English Muffins with the same choices.

Today I was on my way back from the Post Office and I noticed the sign at Toody's saying breakfast was now being served. So I pulled my gas guzzling Hummer into the parking lot and went in and I dined on an English muffin with Egg, Sausage and for good measure a couple pieces of bacon,* and I gotta tell you it was damn GOOD. AFFORDABLE TOO!! Why anyone in the world would even THINK about going to Dunkin Donuts for the crap they serve is beyond me. Do yourself a favor and try Toody's breakfast items. You won't be disappointed.

A generous assortment of Donuts (mmmmm donuts mmmmm) and muffins are also on the menu for those wanting a lighter choice along with good coffee and juice.

*I gotta agree with WRKO AM 680 Evening drive host and Boston Herald Columnist Howie Carr EVERYTHING tastes better with bacon on it.
