For a truly authentic and delicious Atlantic City experience, Tony’s Baltimore Grill is not to be missed. Forever a locals’ standby, the place is totally old school (in the biz since the ’20s) and, unlike many of its peers, always lives up to the hype. Tony’s rosewood-paneled restaurant side (complete with tabletop jukeboxes) is like South Philly’s Marra’s morphed with a killer ‘50s Vegas lounge that serves delicious food until 3 a.m. The bar half is dark, the drinks are cheap ($2.25 pints!), and it’s open 24 hours a day. What’s more: They have a ton of a bottled, plus Budweiser and Coors Light on draught and served up in little juice glasses—nice. The menu offers fresh, baked-around-the-clock bread, stand-up antipasti, the best spaghetti and meatballs in southern NJ and, of course, Tony’s world-famous pizza-—as unique as the restaurant itself and the real reason to go. It’s a fairly thin-crust pie with sweet sauce and classic topping combos that must be experienced to be understood. (Locals prefer the “special”: mushroom and sausage.) If you’re going on a weekend, be emotionally prepared to wait in a line that will no doubt stretch out the door, and for waitresses that are all business, but believe this, dear reader: You will not be disappointed.
