800 Gallons of Soup ???? That is the amount of soup that Voltzys Rootbeer Stand sells each winter … because they are just that damn good.
All of the soups are personally made by the owner…. from scratch.
The burger expert known for his sharp insulting wit, is also becoming our own local version of Seinfeld’s “Soup Nazi.”
If you don’t get razzed at Voltzy’s by the owner Rick Volz, then you might feel left out. He is known for his one liners, verbal jabs, complaints, zingers and humor, all of which take a couple trips to get used to …
From our Food Adventures with Voltzy over the past 10 years we have learned this about Voltzy’s
1) Know that he loves when you eat on his patio during the summer months.
2) He loves when you call your orders in ahead of time …. and
3) He will give you grief if you stray from his menu on how the sandwiches come, condiments etc,, but he grudgingly abides.. eventually.
Rick, a Ft. Wayne, Indiana native, is making winter a bit warmer with his hot soup choices that he has been selling for over 25 years.
He usually features ONE SOUP AVAILABLE PER DAY.
What are they you ask?
****Note all soups are 3 bucks****
— CABBAGE ROLL SOUP:
The most popular and the best soup… it is also available for $45 a gallon with 4 days notice . It is worth it. A perfect cross of spicy, sweet, cabbage and mix of veggies and crumbled meat.
His famous burger meat simmered with tomatoes and onions, and secret spices. Goodness in a cup.
—POLISH VEGETABLE SOUP – KALUSHKA
Kalushka?? It is a Polish soup! It has a chicken broth base, ham, potatoes, butter, cabbage and get this…the kicker is BACON and BEER! How can you go wrong with that?
—CREAM OF VANDALIA ONION:
He uses Vidalia onions, but this wise guy calls the soup Cream of Vandalia as a play on Dayton. It is creamy, the onions are soft and sweet. It is an amazing soup and a perfect winter “pick me up.” The best named soup in Dayton.
He shreds chicken and adds Mexican spices. This isn’t your typical tortilla soup. All of Voltzy’s soup have his unique touch and taste.
A meaty, slightly spicy chili with onions and beans. He also will put this over fries for “Sammy’s Chili Cheese Fries Order”
WHAT ELSE TO EAT AT VOLTZY’S
If you have never been to Voltzy’s you are not only missing out on these fantastic soups, but you are missing out on the best cheeseburgers in town. He gets the meat ground fresh every day, never frozen. From there the magic of the grill and the ingredients speak for itself.
May we suggest these two “ MUST EATS ”
- Get the 10 SLIDER CHEESEBURGERS for $12 deal. Each slider has grilled onions, cheese and sweet heat mustard.
- “THE HOG” a delicious, monstrous 20 oz CHEESEBURGER with grilled onions, grilled onions, cheese and sweet heat mustard.
The burgers are so fresh, they melt in your mouth. It is really a one of a kind recipe, he has going.
Get to Voltzy’s and get an original taste of one of Dayton’s finest..
