Onken Family Dinners

The Meatball Shop

Drop in LunchboxNew York, NY

Definitely a staple, and now that they opened one in Williamsburg. It’s one of my favorites, the ambiance match the amazing food, and to top it off it’s a great cheap eat. It’s a very unique system to because it’s mostly build your own plate. They give you a menu with a marker and you choose your flavor of balls, sauce, and pasta/sides(under or on the side). The desert, is home made ice cream sandwiches. Essentially home made ice cream inside of home made cookies with at least 5 flavors of each to choose from. The Williamsburg location(170 Bedford Ave) has a full bar too, along with regular drinks, they have a choose it yourself menu that is pretty good as well.

My fave combo:
•Spicy Pork Meatballs with Spicy Meat Sauce over Simple salad or White Beans.(Spaghetti is great too)
•Simple Salad(Arugula & Apples)
•Steamed Spinach
•Sauteed Broccoli
•The meatball sandwiches are pretty rockin’ as well.

One other thing to note, be prepared for a 30min-1hour wait at prime dinner time(8PMish) but it’s worth it.
