Bob & Timmy's

By BILL RODRIGUEZ  |  July 15, 2009

Seeing as the good Lord made to-go containers for a reason, we didn't hesitate to also order one of their five pastas. A temptation was the Hill Special ($14), with grilled chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, wild mushrooms, and smoked Gouda cream sauce. We went instead for the Spruce Street Special ($14). It had the same grilled chicken and wild mushrooms, but with grilled yellow onions in what was described as a marsala wine sauce. I expected the usual thin sauce, but this was a thick red version bolstered with the sweet wine, alcohol boiled off and leaving a rich, hearty flavor. Loved it.

Not so loved was the blackened chicken sub ($7.50), with Cajun spices and the smoked Gouda I saved for this opportunity. The combination sounded good in theory but conflicted in action, to my taste. You might respond differently. The 12-inch grinders are also available as wraps.

All in all, a pretty good experience. Bob & Timmy may be absent, but the spirit of their pizza carries on.
