The Cos Cobber opened in July of 2011 after extensive renovations of the former Landmark Diner. Business has boomed ever since.

Vizzo described how the Cos Cobber serves American fare food as well as Italian dishes. Popular items include the perfect summer sandwich BLT, burgers, and the signature Cos Cobber Salad, which has mixed greens, tomatoes, black olives, avocado, boiled eggs, Gorgonzola cheese and Balsamic dressing.

Vizzo stressed the deliciousness of the burgers, which are great because the “quality of meat is top notch.”

Each of the Critics selected a different item from the menu: The Cos Cobber salad for Kai, BLT for Drew and cheeseburger sliders for Spencer.

Kai loved the salad, especially the shrimp that he chose as the protein. A a fan of blue cheese, he no trouble devouring what was on the plate.

Drew loved the BLT, saying that it was perfect for hot weather.

Spencer, who finished the sliders and fries in just a few minutes, said that the burgers were some of the best he has ever had.
