Talarico’s has slices that are bigger than your face (unless you have a really big face), salads, pastas, and a kids menu. So if you’re rolling with a crew that includes a few people who are still learning their pronouns, this is a good option. Come on a Sunday night and you can get your David (Bowie, Lee Roth, or Mathews) on during karaoke.
