Voltaco’s Italian Foods in Ocean City, NJ, closing

It looks like 2022 will be the last year for an iconic Jersey Shore restaurant that has been serving delicious food since the 1950s.

1954, to be exact.

It’s 68 years old.

But, at least the good news is that you still have about a month to buy your favorite pizzas, pastas and subs at Voltaco’s on West Avenue in Ocean City.

Go on facebook On Friday morning, the owners of Voltaco posted a heartfelt message which reads in part,

Since 1954, Voltacos has been here to serve our customers, locals and tourists, the best Italian takeout on the Jersey Shore. Now in our fourth generation, we’re proud of the business we’ve built and the legacy we’ve created for ourselves in the process. . . .As each season draws to a close, we always begin to look back and reflect as well as look forward and project. After much deliberation, we have made the not-so-easy decision to make 2022 our final year in business.

Needless to say, Voltaco’s is a landmark in Ocean City. Their gray, unassuming building just minutes across the 9th Street Bridge features an old-fashioned sign simply highlighted by “Italian Food Takeout.”

Comments on their Facebook page are pouring in

Unimaginable to think of life and Ocean City without Voltacos and the Taccarino family. I’ve known you all my life. I wish you the best for the future

Voltaco’s was a staple in Ocean City. We will miss you but good luck in your future endeavours.

Although happy for them, I am so sad. NO ONE can replace this place…their cheesesteaks, hoagies and dinners are the best.

Last call

Voltaco’s will be permanently closing on Sunday October 9th.
