For nearly 40 years, fooods for here & there has been a fixture at 149 Orange Street—it’s been the place where several generations of locals have been going for subs, pizza, calzones. Their great prices, friendly island vibe, and fast service has kept it a favorite. Whether you are seeking a place to bring the family for lunch or dinner, want to order pizza and sandwiches to go, or if you want food delivered to your home or boat, fooods can accommodate you.
The folks at fooods have been doing some renovations this season to their dining room and to their kitchen. The new interior is clean and bright and more open. New tables, new chairs, and air-conditioning has made the indoor dining room cool and comfortable. A new Grab-n-Go counter has been added to serve customers who can’t afford even a short wait with sandwiches made that day, salads, desserts, and big, juicy deli pickles. We sampled two of these salads—the chilled Rice Noodles & Veggies and the creamy Canadian Bacon & Veggies—both make great fast lunches. You can pick up potato salad, or a pesto & veggie salad to enjoy with your sandwich. A new grill is giving staff at fooods the ability to add even more great choices to their sandwich selection: look for a Monte Cristo and a California Reuben to be offered soon. Some time this September, fooods will start opening early for breakfast!
This local joint has a well-deserved reputation for really good pizza. They make their own dough in-house, and it cooks up with great texture and flavor— crispy with just the right amount of chew. You can choose between Sicilian and NY style crust—thick and thin—either way, the crust has a crisp edge and is flexible enough to fold, but can support several toppings. The kitchen at fooods makes their own red pizza sauce, with a nice balance between sweet and tangy, and they use a blend of fresh mozzarella and other cheeses.
After you choose crust style and size, then you get to select from 22 different toppings, including Canadian bacon, which is not offered at all island pizzerias. In addition to the custom pizzas, fooods also makes 9 specialty pizzas. Their Buffalo Chicken Pizza, with a blue cheese sauce and mozzarella topped with spicy strips of buffalo chicken breast has long been a favorite of our team.
The food is good, the prices are great, and just like the name promises, this is the place for foood for here & there.
