THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Frankie Mandola's Restaurant Review: We know the sports memorabilia on the walls, including the extensive local college team treasures, are the product of a decorator buying in lots rather then a collectors life-long love. We dont care-we also know wed be crashing the party if we showed up at a genuine sports bar for the guilty pleasure of wings slathered in dairy-based dip. Frankie Mandola has paid his dues in the food business by running a fleet of authentic Italian eateries. This venture was opened with an old friend, and does more than good by burgers and brew. We all have days when the only possible solace is something fried dipped in something fatty, like onion rings in ranch dressing-and those are just the days to head over to Mandolas. One example: a plank of chicken fried steak swimming in cream gravy. And, if meat and grease and cream make you too bloated to leave, just settle in comfortably on the well-padded bench seats until your energy returns.
