New Menu Item: Spicy Italian Burger

This one is an old favorite of mine from the early days of Shultzy's.

The Novie Wedge (Sweet Italian Sausage Burger with melted provolone cheese, marinara sauce, grilled onions & peppers, and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese on a crusty italian roll) has been a staple on the Shultzy's menu since the very beginning. I like it because it's like a sausage pizza, but with much better sausage than any pizza place I've been to.

If there's one thing missing from the Novie Wedge, it's a touch of heat. I'm a pepperhead, and I like a little spiciness in my sausage. that's where the Spicy Italian Burger comes in. It's a Novie Wedge, but instead of the mild Sweet Italian Sausage Burger, it has a spicy Hot Italian Sausage Burger. In the old days, you could get one made custom for you if the grill wasn't too busy (the cook would "de-link" a Hot Italian into a patty). But now, for a limited time, it's on the menu for you to enjoy any time.

If you like the Hot Italian, give the Spicy Italian Burger a try. And if you really want to be an insider, you can call it a "Vesuvius" (the staff's nickname for it) or a "Muzzino's Masterpiece" (how it shows up on the POS system -- named after Andy Muzzino, our in-house Sausage maker).
