When owners Cara and Catherine DeLalla came up with the idea for Meatballerz, they felt like Atlanta was in need of a good place to get a homemade meatball sandwich. It became their goal to make people fall in love with the meatball again. Each meatball is hand rolled, using only the highest quality ingredients including locally sourced butcher meat, fresh herbs, fine Italian cheeses, and custom baked bread prepared exclusively for Meatballerz. They use an age old Italian recipe passed down from generation to generation that remains true to the old world method of meatball making.
Instead of recreating the meatball, they decided to improve the way you eat it. Hence, the ball-in-a-hole concept. A fresh baked Italian boule is cut to create a lid in the top and stuffed with a giant meatball. It is then topped with their signature Italian red gravy and shredded mozzarella cheese and baked to crispy perfection. Say goodbye to messy, soggy, meatball sandwiches. The unique design of the ball-in-a-hole makes this meatball sandwich easy to eat unlike the meatball subs of the past.
In addition to meatball sandwiches, Meatballerz offers a variety of homemade Italian style street foods like hand stretched Sicilian pizzas, pasta bowls, and more.
