Tax Return Preparation Personal & Business Computerized Bookkeeper Financial Planning Michael Short photo Porky Pete's has just opened its doors on Long Neck Road. Shown with some of their fresh- ly roasted meats and bakery-fresh bread are (l-r) manager Carmen Crispin and owners Marisa DiBernardo and Pete Catanese. Porky Pete's serves it up hot and fresh on Long Neck Road By Michael Short At Porky Pete's, the food is fresh and it's served with style. "For a piece of meat that can't be beat, come see your buddy Pete," laughed co-owner Pete Catanese. Catanese and Marisa DiBemar- do own the new Long Neck Road restaurant, which specializes in hot sandwiches and breakfast. The owners have tried to develop a unique restaurant, serving fresh, homemade food like your mama used to make. The owners have also tried to bring their own Philadelphia her- itage of fine Italian dining to the area. The meats and the bakery- fresh breads come from Philadel- phia's Italian markets and the pro- volone cheese is imported from Italy. Everything is fresh and made at the restaurant, which offers both seating and take-out dining. Porky Pete's is located near Grotto Pizza and The Crab Barn and Catanese, DiBernardo and manager Carmen Crispin serve up equal orders of fun and food. "Now, that's a chicken sand- wich," Catanese says as he shows off a chicken fillet the size of a small continent for a customer. "We have the best pork within 100 miles," says Crispin with a smile. "It's so fresh it was walking only a couple of days ago." "We wanted to be different from any other place around," said DiBernardo. The sausage is handmade, the beef is all top round and the chick- en for sandwiches is made from fresh chicken breast slowly mari- nated in olive oil and spices and then freshly sliced. Even the meat- balls are handmade by an old friend of the family. There's nothing prepackaged here and everything is made on the premises. Sandwiches include freshly roasted pork and beef, pepper and egg, hot or sweet sausage or grilled chicken. There are side dishes like french fries, onion rings and Caesar sal- ad. Porky Pete's makes its own spaghetti sauce and offers a choice of three pastas for patrons. Breakfast sandwiches include pork roll, bacon, scrapple, sausage and egg. Don't forget to try the broccoli rabe, a unique combination of broccoli and spinach. It's a unique taste, which combines the two vegetables, gently saut6d with olive oil and just a hint of garlic. The restaurant is family orient- ed and the dining area is light and airy. There are tables inside and out- side and prints, including one that says, "Everything I need to know, about life, I learned from a cow," adorn the walls. But the specialty here is fresh, homemade food and lots of it. "It's like it was cooked in your kitchen," said Catanese. "Try us once and you'll come back all the time," said Crispin. Hours are long to cater both to morning crowds and the late night set. Porky Pete's is open 8 a.m. to midnight, Monday through Fri- day, and 6 a.m. to 2 a.m., Saturday and Sunday. For take-out orders, call 945- 6600. Prices range from $2.75 to $3 for breakfast and up to $4.50 for the hot sandwiches. There will be Philadelphia-style soft pretzels this summer and pos- sibly water ice, according to the owners. There is ample parking and the restaurant is accessible to people with disabilities. The work is hard and the hours are long, but DiBernardo said it's worthwhile. "We have wanted to do this for a long time and we have a lot of fun," DiBernardo said.
