Grill & BBQ Like an Italian this Fourth of July!

Step up your hot dog game this Fourth of July and use Maria’s family recipe to make your celebration a hit. If you are going to be out by the pool, barbecuing some delicious food this Independence Day, consider picking up a pack of Maria’s Homestyle Italian Fennel Sausage. Get a dozen for only $15 then take them home. Not only is Maria offering up her family recipe sausages for this holiday she is also giving away her Sausage & Peppers recipe! On every pack, we will include our sausage, peppers, and onions recipe so that your Italian hot dogs are sure to be a bigger event than the fireworks.

This is just one of the many delicious sides that you can pick up the day before from Maria’s on the 3rd of July. Ask a manager about our summer pasta salads, half-baked pizzas (you can grill those too), BBQ Chopped Salad, or grilled veggies. Order your sides online now.
