"We went to Spolumbo's based solely on the Roadfood.com listing. It was a disappoinment. The much-heralded sausage is pretty good, and it is served on a reasonable roll. The sausage is dry; I had to ask for more Italian sauce. The other sandwiches are routine; small ..."   [Read More]

Spolumbo's was created by three former teammates of the Stampeders, Calgary's football team. It's a great place to eat ... and to buy freshly-made Italian sausage for cooking at home or campfire.
