My Favorite Meatball Recipe Is Not In The Meatball Shop Cookbook. What Gives? 

We are sorry that your favorite recipe did not make the Cookbook cut. We are always coming up with new delicious balls so keep an eye out for a new cookbook!

We Want To Bring Our Own Bottle Of Wine To The Restaurant. How Can We Enjoy It With Our Meal?

We are happy to let guests bring their own bottle of wine in for a $15 corkage fee per bottle.

Wait Times/Seating

We Are Just Waiting On One Person To Get Here, They Are Almost Here. Why Won’t You Seat Us?

It is our policy across the board that we do not seat incomplete parties. We operate on a first-come, first-served basis and therefore it’s not fair to hold a table while other groups are complete and all ready to be seated. 


We love your sauce! Where can we buy it?

We sell jars of our sauce in our restaurants, through our online store and on Amazon. We are also expanding into grocery stores nationwide - so check your local store!

I am a retailer - how can I sell your sauce in my store?

You can shop wholesale on Mable. We also work with distributors around the country. Contact us at for more information.
