Gino's in NLR

Ginos Philly steak

Cheesesteaks at Gino's Pizzaria & Philly Steak don’t match those deliciously greasy and gooey delights at Rocky’s Pub, but they’re not bad.

Served heaping, as the Philly steak gods intended, with a thick layer of mayo and the option to include bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, onion and tomato, the six-inch ($5.99) included what surely was our weekly recommended amount of meat, griddle-cooked to near crispiness. I elected to get my sandwich without cheese (gasp!); it was plenty gooey and filling without it. My biggest complaint was with the bread. It was run-of-the-mill hoagie bread, sufficiently thick, but utterly boring.

Ginos meatball

My buddy judged his six-inch Monster Meatball ($4.99), slathered with marinara and cheese, similarly: fine, but not up to the standard of the area’s best meatball grinders (at Iriana’s and Rocky’s, for instance).

An order of fries ($1.79) was big enough to share. That we didn’t finish them had more to do with their limp greasiness than the portion, though. An important note to lovers of massive amounts of corn syrup: the soda fountain here includes Coke and Pepsi products.

There was pizza and wings in a warmer near the counter. And we saw someone eating a sizable burger.

2000 Pike Ave., NLR. No alcohol. CC. 501-379-8410, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Mon.-Sat., 12 p.m.-6 p.m. Sun.
