Speaking of all things Italian, can any of the BTF experts identify any of the below:

I thought this was taken in front of MW, but after a second look, I'm not so sure. I am, however, pretty sure that the guy on the far right is one of my closest friends..and the only one of the four not to attend MW. The guy second from the right has initials AD, I'm fairly certain.

Question is, can anyone identify the guy looking back with the glasses. Should be EASY for longtime Berwyn "experts"...a household name in the area.

Correction.

The guy on far right is NOT one of my closest friends and he DID attend MW. I was right on the money with who the second guy from the right was, though.

And YES, this IS on Home Avenue right in front of MW.

  Is that a first for Salerno's - delivering pizza?   Or did they do pizza delivery previously?

I think it speaks favorably for the owner of Brando's to let another business use his kitchen/restaurant space.  Let's cut the guy a break.

Agree! Salerno's always had delivery.

Must have been something new.  They didn't deliver when I lived in Berwyn.  The one on Grand delivers in the Loop

The one on 16th street never delivered. They always said they never had to the pick-up was always busy.

Salerno's did not always deliver. The Oak Park one may have started delivering when they were actually on the Berwyn side of Roosevelt. When I opened Food Taxi in 1996, I approached the owners on 16th street and was honestly told " do you realize how many drivers you would have to have going at one time to deliver our Pizza's? We're busy enough." So they weren't even interested in doing delivery back then. I do know that the Grove one was delivering since the day Arnie opened.

I don't think the Home Avenue location delivered either, although I may be mistaken. I DO remember there being a pick up window/door right by the alley on Home Avenue that was ALWAYS busy.

I worked there in high school & they did not deliver as well. The only ones that ever delivered was the ones owned by Joe & Arnie.

Wouldn't be surprised if something opens in the old Salerno's spot within the next two-three weeks.

I thought Jim Peterik for a second, but too short and too young I think.
