What are Spiedies?
Spiedies originated in Binghamton, NY when Italian immigrants brought over cuts of meat such as lamb and beef in the early 1920's. They were marinated, cubed, grilled and typically served with home made freshly baked bread. As they gained popularity, chicken became the go to meat. We pay our respects to the original creator, Augie Lacovelli who first served Spiedies in his restaurant in Binghamton, NY in 1939.
Spiedies started to spread through the region as they were introduced to the NYS fair in 1976 by Salamida. Since then Spiedies have become a nostalgic favorite. Since 1983 the Spiedie fest and hot air balloon rally in Binghamton, NY has been a celebrated favorite and is currently one of the largest balloon rally's in the nation.
We have taken this humble marinated chicken and paired it with creative menu options that accentuate the flavors of this small town favorite. Our housemade spiedie sauce is one of a kind and will not disappoint. We stayed true to its Italian roots and will be featuring authentic Neapolitan brick oven pizza, sizzling fire roasted pasta dishes, fresh and fun salads and of course freshly baked bread for our sandwiches. Spiedies plus grill equals delicious!!
