What do you get when you combine great food, great drink, great company, AND a great cause? You get Moranto's Backstreet Bar & Grill and the 6th Annual Motorcycle Run, a popular yearly event which raises much appreciated contributions to the Teamsters Local 251's Scholarship Fund. On Sunday, June 3rd, beginning at 2:00pm, riders and non-riders alike are invited to participate in the motorcycle run (starts at 11:00am from Local 251 in East Providence), ending with a sizzlin' hot cookout at Moranto's in Warwick. For a donation of just $20.00 per bike (you don't need a bike to come!), you will be treated to an afternoon of Moranto's always delicious food, a celebratory crowd and a gratifying spirit of giving. This event is rain or shine - so gas up your bike and come along.
As if you needed more reasons to come to this popular watering hole in Warwick, Moranto's Backstreet Bar & Grill is also hosting one of its famous STEAK FRYs! Dick and Colleen Moranto have been firing up their grill for these ever-popular fry's for years, and they never fail to deliver on their promise of an unbelievable meal for an unbelievable price. Starting at 2:00 on Sunday, May 20th, there is plenty of food to go around - including a succulent grilled steak, steaming hot oven-roasted potatoes, buttery rolls, fresh vegetables and crispy salad - all for only $9. But be warned - the tickets are limited and they go fast, so be sure to get your tickets in advance.
Now that the weather is warming up to stay, Moranto's has finally opened its outdoor patio for dining. Come and enjoy the live entertainment on the weekends, the Red Sox playing on one of the several HD TVs, a cool game of pool and mostly, the great food here. This busy pub-style restaurant has been serving up satisfying and hearty food for over 19 years. Every day, you will find a large selection of delicious lunch and dinner options, including hot and cold sandwiches, burgers and specialty pizzas, as well as such entrees as the classic Meatloaf dinner or their generous Surf & Turf platter - all great deals for $14.00 or less. Served daily from 11am - 4pm, there is also an unbelievable lunch deal for only $6.00, with the purchase of a beverage (does not include take-out orders). Best of all, the bar is always open for a drink from a long list of wines, mixed drinks and chilled draft beers.
Moranto's is located at 2247 West Shore Road in Warwick. Hours are Monday - Saturday from 11:00am to 1 am, and Sundays from noon to 1 am. For take-out orders, call 736-0404.
