I little too spicy for me. But I liked the consistency.
5 Stars
Really yummy, but I'm not 100% sure that I believe the calorie count on this one. I *want* to believe, though.

I sometimes crave the buffalo flavor but not the fried wings that usually accompany it. These meatballs had the perfect heat and flavor profile I was looking for. My tastebuds thank you!

Meatballs were delicious and the buffalo sauce was delicious. However, the vegetables that accompanied the dishes were disgusting. They were not crudite style - rather bitter, dirty, and visually off-putting. I ended up throwing them away.

I guess I didn't understand buffalo sauce, so found this rather weird--ample serving, however--also didn't like blue cheese dip but veggies were nice and fresh definitely would not order again--

These meatballs are delicious - super moist. And the buffalo sauce and ranch sauce are very fresh and flavorful. Yum!

I always order anything Steven Levine makes and always delighted. This was the worst dish EVER and I tossed it after opening. We had to take it downstairs to compost the amount of garlic was so overwhelming. Yuck

Liked the texture. Sauce could have been more complex. Taste mostly hot
3 Stars
Flavor was good, but way too salty. Luckily I had some dinner rolls on hand. I made it into a meatball sandwich, which made the saltiness tolerable.
2 Stars
Meat quality wasn't very good. Flavoring was fabulous but need to warn very hot
3 Stars
The chicken, veggies and hot sauce were great but the blue cheese was basically mayonnaise. Hardly any blue cheese flavor at all
2 Stars
This dish should come with a heat warning! The chili pepper sauce made for a miserable experience even though the meatballs were very good.
5 Stars
Delicious !! Please put this on the menu again.
5 Stars
These are damn tasty! The meatballs are tender and flavorful and the buffalo sauce is to die for. The blue cheese dressing and veggies are the perfect accompaniment. Please put this dish on future menus again and again!

Meatballs were too salty, veggies were very fresh & love the dip had chunks of blue cheese in it.

The flavor was great, the meatballs were delicious but the vegetables were sad, dry and brown :/
