Saucy Noodle Facebook page
At the Saucy Noodle, the tablecloths are still checkered, the spaghetti and meatballs are still drenched in garlic-studded red sauce, and the same slogan is still emblazoned on the awning: "If you don't like garlic, go home." It was Sam Badis' motto when he opened the restaurant in Bonnie Brae back in 1964, and it continues under his granddaughter Erin Markham's ownership. "Our pasta, our pizza, things that were there in 1964 are still there, still true to the same recipes," Markham says. "So much has changed, yet there is so much that has stayed the same." The Noodle will be hosting a 50th anniversary celebration tomorrow, starting at 4:30 p.m.
