More Saving. More Eating.

Growing up in an apartment my entire life, I always relied on the super for home maintenance and repair.  As such, I have little patience for Home Depot, Lowes, or store of similar ilk.  My girlfriend on the other hand is the exact opposite, to the point where she worked at a Home Depot for years.  As you might infer, the suggestion of a Home Depot run can very easily escalate into an argument.  Fortunately for Sandy, the Home Depot on Northern has its very own Chris bait -- Rocco's Italian Sausages & Philly Cheese Steaks.  The name says is all, they do two things and they do them well.

Rocco's Italian Sausages & Philly Cheese Steaks
5010 Northern Blvd
Long Island City, NY 11101
Neighborhoods: Astoria, Woodside
(718) 204-0478

The quality is above average for a place of this profile, easily head & shoulders above most of the street fair/feast vendors. I'd opt for the cheese steak over the sausage, but that's just how I am. The cheese all but absorbs into the bread, blanketing the lean meat in a cocoon of shameful indulgence.

10/10 -- would eat
