Cozy Corner Restaurant Review

: The decades-old, slightly rundown location of Cozy Corner still stands, but fire damage forced the mom-and-pop to move into a shared space across the street for the foreseeable future. You can still smell the aroma of smoked pork at least a block away from where it’s being served. Cozy Corner is well-loved by locals for its ’cue, but the classic bologna sandwich, with an unexpectedly thick slab of bologna, is also a huge hit. Tangy barbecued pork shoulder and ribs are prepared in a glowing fire pit. Customers return again and again for the barbecue Cornish game hen; you get a whole bird, and this smoky, spicy creature is topnotch. There’s no alcohol served at Cozy Corner, and desserts are limited to the daily pie, which may be purchased whole or by the slice.
