Breakfast & Lunch

Their sign boasted "homemade chicken cutlets & meatballs" and they weren't kidding.  The cook whipped up some egg wash, pulled a fresh chicken breast from the refrigerator, breaded it and fried it to order.  Meatballs were made ahead a time, but equally as good.

Parking can be a problem here.  When the lot is full next door, the auto salvage folks drop off some wrecks in Rita's lot.  Also, if you've ever wondered where the guys who tow your car away hang out, this is the place.
