Kibbee Nayee Posted April 21, 2014 Share Posted April 21, 2014 As lunch counter Italian-ish goes, Springfield and surrounding areas deliver. Bozzelli's on Backlick serves up decent subs and mama's Italian dishes, with an ever-improving beer and wine selection. Johnny's over near Kingstowne offers a nice assortment of hearty pizzas and Itlaian fare, with emphasis on hearty. Half a notch below is Uncle Charlie's, a non-chain that caters mostly to the workers at nearby garages and businesses in the Backlick-Alban-Haute-Boudinot corridor. Uncle Charlie's offers a breakfast menu all day long -- and that separates it from some of the competition. You can get an omelet for dinner, for example, or you can get the area's only scrapple sandwich any time of day. The pizzas are OK, not great, and the sandwiches are not up to Bozzelli's standards. They deliver, and my neighborhood is within the delivery envelope. Not a place you would take a detour for, but if you like scrapple or have a hankering for a late evening omelet, or a credible but not great pizza, Uncle Charlie's delivers. Literally. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
