National Meatball Day is on March 9. To celebrate a holiday that just might eclipse Christmas and Thanksgiving, Datz is serving one-pound meatballs stuffed with spaghetti and covered in pomodoro sauce and Parmesan cheese.
The dummy thicc meatball is normally $18, but the restaurant chain has been overcome by the holiday spirit and will be serving the meal for half-off on National Meatball Day.
In a release, Datz’s Kitchen Manager Angel Campos said he created the dish out of a desire to make something that would be fun to eat, while still keeping the comfort and quality of home-cooked spaghetti and meatballs.
The massive meatball is available at both the St. Petersburg (180 Central Ave.) and Tampa (2616 S. MacDill Ave.) locations.
The fat dish isn’t the only thing Datz is up to. The local restaurant chain recently announced a new Riverview location, and has continued its rapid expansion through Tampa Bay with downtown St. Petersburg and Tampa Convention Center locations.
