LaRosa is well known for his support of amateur sports in Cincinnati plus other things. Buddy represents the good which can come out of the old-fashioned American work ethic. LaRosa's particular style of Italian is not my favorite, sauces too heavy and sweet, but that is just my personal taste. I can certainly partake of it, just won't go out of my way to get it. But I recognize personal tastes vary considerably and obviously enough people do like their style to keep them in business over a long period of time. It is rather like Cincinnati chili, many love it but others detest it.

I am glad LaRosa is a Cincinnati institution and has sustained well against the invasion of national chains.I wish them continued success. It is also nice to see Buddy's and JoJo's children continuing the business, though they would be crazy not to. The 2nd generation typically grows the business to even greater heights, it is the 3rd generation which wrecks it somehow thinking people are privileged to do business with them rather than the other way around.

I miss LaRosa's too, especially cheese hoogies.

I can't get any Cincinnati style hoogies up here.

That was a nice tribute. The Enquirer is capable of decent writing from time to time.

I've been a LaRosa's fan most of my life. I remember eating at the old Buinoit (spelling?) location.
