Dominick’s (812 Monroe Street Ann Arbor, MI 48104-3084) is an Ann Arbor institution. I never went when I was undergrad at UofM as I didn’t turn 21 until after graduation, but I don’t know why I never went while I was in graduate school. Guess I was stuck on Good Time Charly’s.
On the Saturday night before Father’s Day we took my dad to Dominick’s for drinks and dinner. We knew that dad would enjoy Dominick’s famous sangria, the good food, and the kitschy Ann Arbor vibe. In fact, he loved it!
The sangria is sold in pint, quart and half gallon sizes. We had no problem drinking the half gallon of sangria (there were three of us) and we drank plenty of water too (make sure you have a designated driver!). The menu at Dominick’s is made up of Italian favorites like lasagna, pizza, and ravioli (entrees come with salad AND soup) as well as a good selection of sandwiches and snack foods. We decided to order several items off the snack menu and share.
The veggie quesadilla was excellent with corn, zucchini, peppers, and onions along with cheese. I would recommend the grande size if you are ordering with four or more people. The buffalo wings were good, but not great. I like a crisper skin and they weren’t spicy at all even though we ordered hot, though this could have been a mix-up and the spicy wings may be super hot, dunno. The stromboli was very good. Nice and cheesy and the pepperoni gave it a nice kick, it was excellent dipped in marinara sauce.
We sat in the back garden, but there is seating on the front porch and some limited seating inside. Dominick’s is open from 10am-10pm, Monday through Saturday, March through November.
