Food has always been a staple among the ‘Jersey Shore’ roommates 

Jersey Shore is a show about family. And nothing brings a family together like food. During the early seasons of the show, Sunday dinner became a staple in the household. 

Sunday family dinner was very important because it brought us together,” Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino explained to Vulture. “Someone would set the table, and someone would make the salad, and we would all eat together and say grace. We came together [at] Sunday dinner and put our differences aside, and we always had differences.”

While the cast of Jersey Shore get together in a different way now, they still make it a point to enjoy meals together and host Sunday dinners when they can. 

DJ Pauly D’s go-to spot at the Jersey Shore is Steaks Unlimited

During our conversation with the Jersey Shore star about his new ghost kitchen, Pauly D’s Italian Subs, we had to ask about DelVecchio’s favorite spots to eat in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. “My favorite spot to eat is Steaks Unlimited,” DelVecchio said. The Jersey Shore staple is located right across from another common hangout on the series — Beachcomber Bar and Grille.

“It’s where we used to go after the club,” DelVecchio explained. “It was like a staple, like after the club and you’re drunk, you want some good food. We got the [best] cheesesteaks over there.” Now, DelVecchio’s drunk food preferences have changed a bit. 

DJ Pauly D’s favorite drunk food is Chick-Fil-A 

It’s been a few years since DelVecchio has been back to Danny Merk‘s now-famous Jersey Shore house. Ironically, that means his trips to Steaks Unlimited have been quite limited. Nowadays, DelVecchio prefers Chick-Fil-A when he’s drunk. 

“My go-to drunk food right now would have to be Chick-Fil-A,” DelVecchio shared with Showbiz. Like many of us, DelVecchio often finds himself craving their chicken on Sundays when the fast-food chain is closed. 

[When] I used to travel, we would be in the airport on a Sunday [craving Chick-Fil-A] and it’s closed,” DelVecchio lamented. “I’m like, ‘Come on!'”

Nikki Hall cooks for Pauly DelVecchio now 

Anymore, DelVecchio has been enjoying his girlfriend’s cooking. Double Shot at Love star Nikki Hall enjoys whipping up meals, as documented on her social media. And while the Jamaica native often prepares delicious cuisine from the island, it’s her chicken parmigiana that DelVecchio likes best. 

“My favorite thing Nikki [cooks] for me is chicken parm,” DelVecchio told us. “It’s actually really good.” DelVecchio said Hall never made the Italian dish before dating him. Now, chicken parm is a regular meal for the reality stars. “We have it every Sunday,” DelVecchio said.
