Joey B’s Famous Chili Hub has been serving great food for over four years in Cos Cob and is famous for their… guess what? — CHILI! It’s a family run restaurant that is very popular with kids and has many regular customers who keep coming back for their great food and… CHILI!  Today I not only had a great breakfast… but I also got to work in the kitchen with Domenick Delfino whose Dad and Step-Mom own the Chili Hub.

Joey’s is a very small place with only seating at the counter – it seems like it has a lot of takeout customers – but it’s also a great place sit at the counter, relax and enjoy some really different breakfast treats!  Today I had one of their specialties – The Hacksaw.  The Hacksaw is an Egg Sandwich – but not your normal egg sandwich.  It’s made with Eggs, Cheese — Hash Browns — AND CHILI!  All on a roll!

Yes, I had Chili for breakfast – and it was superb! I also had a chocolate milk which was made fresh for me by Lu.

My dad had The Scarpelli – which is also an Egg Sandwich, but it’s also like a sausage and peppers sandwich too — It’s named after the kind of sausage patty it’s made with which comes from Scarpelli’s Deli in Cos Cob.  I tried it and I liked the sausage was spicy and good!

I spoke with Domenick Delfino who invented The Hacksaw, he is the owner’s son AND an excellent cook and asked, “How did you come up with the idea for it?”

“When I was in High School , a lot of my friends would put french fries on their burgers –  that gave me the idea to put Home Fries on my Egg Sandwich … then I added the Chili”.

Mr. Delfino, also gave me a lesson on how to make their special French Toast batter that they make fresh for every order.
