bacon-wrapped meatballs
Bacon-wrapped meatballs from Manic Meatballs in Lakewood.


This new Lakewood meatball spot – read all about it here – is offering a feast for 5 for $55. The restaurant specializes in Swedish meatballs that come with a beefy, silky smooth gravy. You’ll get 24 of those bad boys (or the chicken or pay an upcharge for the vegan Impossible equivalent served with vegan gravy) along with six bacon-wrapped meatballs (pictured above), flooded fries (pictured below), noodles or mashed potatoes, three large sides and dessert. That’s a helluva deal. If you’re doing it right, you’ll get it with the housemade applesauce. It’s excellent.
