DH opened in May 2008, just one month before we moved into our home in Robinson. The owners/manager spent some time working at The Main Hotel in Carnegie - some readers might remember it. Sadly, it closed a few years ago. Happily, some of The Main Hotel's dishes have made it onto the DH menu
I've ordered several things on the menu for my meal and while all have been tasty, I am in love with the Meatball Hoagie. It's four meatballs with melted provolone & marinara on a hoagie roll. I always choose the side of pasta (instead of fries, cole slaw, chips & salsa, potato chips). It's huge! I always take the pasta side and half the hoagie home for 2 more meals. The meatballs are so moist and delicious. I love the hoagie roll. Slightly crunchy from the toasting and just a really good hoagie roll.
Why do we like Downey's House so much? It's close to home. The people are very friendly, they remember/recognize us when we go in and chat with us. Homemade iced tea. Casual, family atmosphere. TVs for watching sports. Tasty food. Huge portions. Reasonable prices.
In addition to the meatball hoagie, I really like the Chicken-Bacon-Cheddar Rolls and Spinach Rolls. Other people we've gone with have really enjoyed the enormous fish sandwich, hot sausage sandwich (Ricci's sausage), seafood bisque, wings, and salmon. If you're in/near Robinson you should give DH a try.
