50 Years at Dalessandro’s

Roxborough’s Dalessandro’s has turned 50 and even better the newest owners have brought it back to its former glory.

To stem the late-2000s “downhill” slide Steve the customer had noticed, Steve the owner installed new countertops and floors, a flat-screen TV, outdoor umbrella-table seating, and added Sunday hours and new Cheez Whiz and microbrew beer options changes that even former owner Sack calls “needed” and “cool.”

    Uhh yeah adding a TV will improve the quality of the food, sure, that makes sense.

    Dalessandro’s doesn’t need to worry about the quality of the food. They’re already serving up the best steaks in the city. The overhaul is a welcome change to its prior lack of ambiance/seating.
