johnnys pizza-fenton, mi

first off, thanks mom and dad for my new camera! the pictures i had on this blog sucked! they got me a sony cybershot for christmas that has a "gourmet" setting for taking pictures of food. awesome!

last night me and lana went to johns pizzeria in fenton. i love this place! its basically fentons version of the white horse. its a great place to just relax and enjoy some great food. the service is always good but expect to wait a little for drink refills or anything you request. they seem to take their time and rarely visit the table during your meal, which is cool, i hate when servers ask me every two minutes if everything is ok.

we started off with the salad bar and also got an order of breadsticks. the salad bar was your typical salad bar, nothing special or fancy. the breadsticks are kinda dry and loaded with Parmesan cheese but still pretty good. i always thought that if johnnys had the fenton houses breadstick then it would be the best place ever. ahh well, the pizza is what you come for anyway.

if you like the pizza at the white horse then you will be into johnnys. the topping choices are pretty standard, just like at the horse and the prices are reasonable. we got a medium two topping for 13 dollars and some change. not bad. all in all, you can not go wrong with this place. its a must eat. you wont be disappointed! its the best pizza in fenton as far as i am concerned!

bells-lansing, mi

this place is everything that wize guys is not, its one of my favorite places to eat in lansing, and its how a pizza by the slice place should be. they are open till 4am, reheat the pizza you order in the oven, and have a good variety of pizza to chose from. oh yeah, and the older slices are buy one get one! the crust is thick and soft and everything is just good. do they use sauce? never can tell. but who cares! this shit is good!!!
last saturday before we went to the small brown bike show we all went to bells to get a few slices and talk about records and past shows. it was great. my friends rule. and here is what they have to say about bells.

these are tylers slices and his thoughts.

How better to pre-empt a sold out Small Brown Bike show at Macs Bar, than with Bell’s Pizza. Tonight Bell’s was rad… not only because I have super cool friends, but because I got buy 1 get 1 free Pepperoni and Mushroom Slices, and the lady forgot to charge me for my 2 breadsticks. The pizza was average because it was the older stuff, hence BOGO, but it sure set up an awesome night… After also getting hustled in line by spandex north facers I like Lance was pretty bummed, but the... buy one get one slices made up for it.

these next two are from jason kotarski.

The first thing I noticed at Bell’s was the super thick crust. It wasn’t thick like Chicago-style pizza but it was thicker than your everyday slice, and pretty moist too! I decided to try a slice of barbeque chicken which was sweet and gooey in the best sort of way. I was little disappointed with my second slice of ham and pineapple. This slice seemed lacking in sauce. Even with the fantastic crust it was a little dry. For me, the East Lansing pizza scene has some neck and neck contenders for best pie, Bell’s and Georgio’s. Either one will do for me on the way to see Small Brown Bike!

these two slices are lances, and his thoughts...

I have to say I like the Bell's on M.A.C. better, the slices I would normally get are a lot more fresh at that location. Probably because the foot traffic is much higher. After getting hustled in line by spandex north facers I was pretty bummed, but the... buy one get one free cheese slices made up for it.

the fenton house

back when i was in middle school the place to go on half days was first to stop into sweet variations for some candy, and then cross the street to the fenton house for some video games and bread sticks. back then, the fenton house was always loud and filled with rowdy kids and it was sweet. maybe it was always filled with rowdy kids because i only went there with a bunch of kids...i suppose that makes sense.

then the place burned down and they reopened it and the place was filled with Indian artwork, new paint, dim lighting, and a new vibe to it. not so much kid friendly anymore. then a few years ago some drunk dude blew past the intersection and ran his car right into the kitchen of the place. man, what bad luck this place has had these past few years.
well, the bread sticks and pizza havnt changed and the arcade is still there. by far, the best bread sticks in fenton. if you have ever been to an open house in the fenton/linden area, chances are you ate fenton house bread sticks. they are soft, seasoned and buttery. perfect.

we went there tonight and got a pesto pizza, bread sticks, and a big 'ol bowl of minestrone soup. the soup sucked. not much more to say about it.

the pizza on the other hand was delicious! i am a mushroom fan but after a while i get sick of the canned slimy mushrooms that you expect on a pizza. well, not at the fenton house. everything is hand cut and fresh. so good! my aunt chris told me i have acid reflux so thats why we opted with the pesto pie. the pesto is great but a little on the greasy side. but other than that, it was a flawless pizza. and the price is right. all in all our bill was a little over 20 dollars! deal.

sicilys pizza

last night was the first time either of us went to sicilys pizza on south saginaw st in burton. i have heard how good the pizza was but always just a bit turned off on the location and building that i never actually went there. well, now that i have this blog it basically forced me to go. and im glad we did!

the parking to the place is in the back as well as the entrance to the restaurant. when opening the door you step right into the kitchen. it was weird. i thought we had went to the wrong door but the guy working the pizza oven told us to walk right on through. there is a small hallway to the right of the kitchen that you zig zag in and pop out into the dining area. the dining area consisted of about 6 poker tables and a few chairs and smelled like the bottom of an ash tray. it was pretty wild. we sat down and were greeted by a lady that looked like she belonged in the texas chainsaw massacre rather than a pizza joint and the first thing she told us is that the place is cash only. shit! all i had is a debit card. we placed a to go order and then went to the atm.

my atm is right next to a 7-11. me or lana cant be near a 7-11 and not stop in for a slurpee...ok, two slurpees! actually, there was three but i picked one up for my room mate/land lord tommy!

back to sicilys we go to pick up our to go order. again, park in the back and walk through the kitchen. still just as weird as the first time. the place consisted of three employees. texas chainsaw lady, this old italian man that wore a little cooks hat and had a ton of arm hair, and a man with thick coke bottle glasses. the employees were just as bizarre as the restaurant. oh well. i gave the lady a ten dollar tip and she was pretty pumped.

anyway, the pizza is fucking good! its real thin and crispy and everything is just perfect! we also got garlic cheese bread and it was by far the biggest loaf of bread turned into garlic cheese bread i have ever had. prior to this i thought luigis was the best thin crust/garlic cheese bread i have had. well move the fuck over! sicilys is the best thin crust in flint! its a must have! everything is hand made. how do i know? well, i walked through the damn kitchen twice, and, we ordered tomatoes on our pie and on our way out with our pizza there was half a tomato sliced on the cutting board.

i was a little rough on the employees and the restaurant in this post. but damn, the place truly is indescribable. you just have to go there and you will know what i mean.

VGS!!! on silver lake parkway. fenton.

anyone that has ever lived in fenton, or knows someone that lives in fenton, or has been hungry in fenton past midnight knows that there isnt ANYTHING to eat in that town other than taco bell. and that sucks.

ive been living in flint for 5 years now and i have just gotten used to being able to walk across the street and going to tom z's or driving to center rd to the starlight diner when im hungry and its late. but in fenton, you stay hungry and bored. man, i do not miss living in this town.

the pizza at vgs is decent. they have two sizes, one size is 7 dollars and one thats 9 dollars. we got the 7 dollar one and it does the trick. i honestly cant tell you what they have for toppings but whatever we have ordered we have always been able to get. even though the pizza is just alright, it sure beats eating nothing or settling for a store bought frozen pie.

two summers ago when me and lana first started dating we would go to vgs and get a pizza 3 or 4 times a week. me, being awkward and shy and really not knowing what to do while hanging out with a girl looked forward to this. actually, the first time we got pizza at vgs they had carmel kit kat bars for sale so i convinced her to letting me put it on the pizza. it was good if you ask me. the story may be a little different if you ask her. she puts up with all my weird ideas. thanks lana!

so all in all. if you are hungry or bored or just socially awkward and on a date and its late. go to vgs, ask for ashly(jay dowds little sister) and get yourself a pie!

grand blanc inn

every tuesday is half off pizza night at the grand blanc in. cool! another half off pizza in town! well i think i would rather wait for the weekend to get white horse after this pie. the 5 day wait may seem like its far off but fuck, its well worth it.

the pizza here is just a bit off. the crust is too thick to be a thin crust but too thin to be a thick crust and its definitely not hand tossed.they overload the crust with Parmesan cheese but no butter or garlic so its very bland tasting. the sauce is super sweet and has a weird tang to it. the cheese is right on point and the topping choices are very good. i found the colder the pizza got the better it tasted...but maybe it was because i didnt like the first few slices that i ended up drenching each piece with Tabasco. ahh yes, the beauty of hot sauce. oh hot sauce, i love you. also, to get half off you have to eat half the pizza. and these pizzas are HUGE! so beware of what size you order. speaking of huge, they have a 28" pie!!

other than the mediocre pizza the actual restaurant was pretty cool. tvs are everywhere and 80s metal is blasting from the dj booth in the corner. bon jovi, motley crue, and u2 were a few of the bands being played. we got there around 7:15pm and the place was packed full of old people. it was weird. and they were loud! strange.

anyway, they had fried pickles! so good!!
all in all, the grand blanc inn isnt that bad. for you beer drinkers they have a tuesday night $2 draft special. so i guess thats cool? and if you are a fan of sweat pizza sauce then you wont be disappointed in the pizza. overall we spent 17 dollars and some change for a large pizza, fried pickles, and one beer. so the price is right.

also, if you get some of your pizza to go they put it on a paper plate, wrap it in tin foil, and then put it paper bag! how fucking cool is that!?
over the past few days ive found two other bloggers from this area that have their own food blogs. check them out!

delucas-lansing, mi

on friday me and lana went out to lansing to check out a show at the basement 414 where our friends in trisorta and the summer pledge played. before the show we hit up a few record stores with our friend lance and later met up with his girlfriend, kate, and went to get some pizza at delucas. lance told me how great the place was and talked it up alot so i was expecting it to be great. lance didnt let me down!

walking up to the place it just looked like your normal old person friday night dinner joint. it was all brick and lots of brown. i was just assuming i would be walking into a place covered in brown leather seats and being served water in those clear plastic brown tinted cups and looking at real crappy animal paintings on the walls. but as i walked in the inside was really nice and fancy...maybe a little too fancy for us as we found out later on. some dude wouldnt stop staring at us when we left our table, it was pretty awkward and uncomfortable for us. but anyway, when we walked in we had to take a ticket and wait a good 20-30 minutes before being seated. in this time there had to have been 15-20 people picking up a pizza they ordered for take out. this alone made me believe i was about to get some good shit.

we ordered two appetizers and a large za. the wait was kinda long but thats to be expected since there wasnt an open seat anywhere and the waitress kept the drinks coming so that was cool. the pizza was nice and thick, cooked perfectly. i know ive said in previous posts that the pizza was piled high in cheese, well, this pizza was literally the cheesiest pie ive had, ever. when we took the first slice out the strings of cheese from the slice to the pizza was a good 8 inches long and probably could have stretched out to a foot long if we really wanted to. you literally had to take a knife to cut the strings of cheese away from the pizza. we got a picture of that but something happened to lances camera and the picture was lost. bummer!! the sauce was real nice and sweet, the dough was soft and real thick. did i mention it was thick crust? i dont think i have. but man, it was real thick. i loved it and i normally hate deep dish.

shit, this is longer than expected. thanks lance for taking us! this is what lance has to say about it.

"The pizza here at Deluca's is easily my favorite slice here in Lansing, it completely dominates over Pizza House, which was my go to slice before I discovered Deluca's. I've never had a pizza with so much cheese on it before, I mean this stuff is cheesy! Don't waste your money on double cheese because this pizza has ability make even the biggest cheese fan in the world say WOW! All in all, Deluca's is a great value and extremely high quality!"

Thursday, November 12, 2009


so tonight me and lana went to luigis before going to the flint institute of arts to check out a movie called dead snow. the movie was about zombie Nazis attacking these medical students on spring break. it was pretty cool. the movie was called dead snow, check it out.

there is just something about thin crust that allows you to woof down slice after slice and not feel full, gross, or greasy. luigis has been around forever. its on davison road and its delicious. they serve the pizza nice and thin with the topping and cheese right to the edge. the crust is crispy and flaky, the sauce is light, and they dont nickle and dime you with the toppings. i am usually a franks red hot or Tabasco guy except when it comes to luigis, then its all about vinegar. god, the pizza is so good. if you are looking for thin crust in flint, from my knowledge, luigis is the place to go.

we also got cheese bread. sorry in advance, mom, but if you could cook i would imagine this cheese bread being served up at our family spaghetti dinners. its made on a 1/4 loaf of Italian bread with some garlic butter on it and then piled thick with cheese. the garlic butter soaks into the bread and its fucking good.

here is the address to luigis. i suggest you check it out!!
2132 Davison Rd
Flint, MI 48506-3642
(810) 234-9545

lana drew this picture on the place mat at dinner, thought i would share it.

tyler and burton told me i should come up with a rating scale so each place gets rated on the same stuff. so im gonna start doing that, but first i need to come up with what i want to rate each place by. so until then, heres another post of another great za.

there isn't many highlights about flints north end. its pretty run down and high in crime rates. but on north saginaw there is romas, and it is fantastic! for years i have heard about this place and i finally went to check it out last night with lana.

the restaurant is small and a little run down, but i like that. the kitchen is open, and after working in an open kitchen for 7 years, i like to see the people make my food. the servers seems to know everyone. we ordered waters and they came with 2 lemon slices that were connected together with those little plastic swords and that is fucking cool too. with the water she gave us a glass of extra lemons, which were also connected with a plastic sword, and brought out a carafe of water (i dont know what a carafe is, i thought it was a pitcher, but lana says thats what its thats what i write) they also add a gratuity onto your bill but its dirt cheap. the service is good so if you go there, give the server more money than what they grat you for.

to start off with we ordered the foccocia bread, which i thought was going to be similar to brushetta, but we found out it was very different. it was basically a small cheese pizza with tomatoes, olive oil, little garlic, and herbs. SO GOOD! it came out with a side of marinara but that was on the shittier side of things. the oil was separated and floating on top of the sauce, but other than that it was pretty good...i would like to try it when fresh since it was still pretty good considering how old it was.

the pizza was top notch. you can tell a pizza is made fresh when you still get flour residue on your fingers from eating it. the topping selection was a little slim, but if you are just looking for a basic pizza then you wont be disappointed in your options. there was very little grease on it and i felt like i could pound out a whole pie and not even be full. everything was perfect. and for a large it was only ten bucks! oh, i almost forgot. you also get the biggest Parmesan cheese and red pepper flake shakers i have ever seen!!

passport's gluten free pizza. by chris thibodeau

About 6 months ago I found out that I had an intolerance to Gluten. For those of you who don't know Gluten is a protein found in wheat. Also for those of you who don't know me, my diet up until 6 months ago consisted manly of products containing Gluten. I had to give up or find alternatives to many things, but the hardest to give up was pizza.
Like any normal kid growing up in America, pizza was my favorite food. The one food item I could eat everyday if need be. I never seemed to get tired of it. I felt like a little piece of me died when I realized no more pizza.
I felt some relief when I found out that you could make a Gluten free pizza, but was apprehensive about the difference no wheat would have on the taste.
So, I have declared it my duty to try every Gluten free pizza out there. The two restaurants in the area I have found to have a gluten free pizza are Passport Pizza and Uno's.
Both are pretty similar pizzas... thin crust, and your choice of toppings. Basic stuff here. However, I think that the passport pizza is hands down the better gluten free pie for a few reasons.
A. Passports pizza has a crunchier crust, which is pretty important for a thin crust. Gluten free dough can sometimes be soggy tasting. I have noticed that the two times I have had Uno's the crust was slightly soggy.
B. Passport is cheaper. 9.99 at passport 11.99 plus tip at Uno's
C. Location Location Location. Passport is very close to home and they deliver.

wize guys stromboli

today at work we ordered wize guys. nick got the stromboli and could only eat two slices before he had to stop.

this is what nick had to say about it.

"its cheesy, meaty, greasy...its the shit!" - nick mayberry.

this boy weighed 4 pounds on our scale. all of this for 9 bucks! i love wize guys!!

i ate four slices of their pie called the red margheritta and it was fantastic. we both feel like crap and ate too much. although its not pizza, our manager, evetta, made a molten lava chocolate cupcake? i dont know what it was but it was oozing out chocolate and i want more....someone in this library is snoring really loud. go downtown and eat at wize guys!

sams italian restaurant

i have a friend named jesse. i used to hate this kid and found him extremely annoying, but, then i joined a band with him and started to skateboard with him alot and he became one of my good friends. now he lives in orlando and i haven't seen him in about a year. i miss that kid. this is jesse's Halloween costume, and i am jealous. willie nelson wig and peter criss cat whiskers!

anyway, sams italian is in the middle of nowhere in rankin. this place is badass. the parking lot literally has 5 parking spaces and to even enter the restaurant was a difficult task. i felt like i was in a maize since the place had and endless amount of doors. but once i entered i walked into a place that looked like a cabin that i would camp in up north. lots of wood, ugly brown leather seats and terrible paintings on the wall. really dark and cozy. great place to wind down and eat pizza the way it should be, sitting at a table with good company.

the pizza, SO GOOD. this boy was probably the cheesiest pizza i have ever had. the crust was super crispy and thin and bubbles were all over the pizza. you gotta love the bubbles! the sauce was really sweet and they didn't skimp on any toppings. however, the topping choices are pretty slim and that was kinda bummer but that has to be expected at a place like this so its no big deal.

they also have these bread stick like creations they call samarinos. its basically like a pizza roll but without any filling. they are slightly buttered and with a hint of garlic, perfect! they also serve them in a big basket and its piled high so you get your moneys worth.

monday-wednesday they have a dollar beer special and also they have half off appetizers if you buy an appetizer.

i linked this place before, but here it is again. its on grand blanc road between torrey and jennings. i suggest you check it out!

sgt pepperonis

ugh, in a few days i turn 24 and i feel about as old as the dirt we all walk on. for the past ten years i have been going to shows and watching bands play on the regular and this past weekend i finally saw one of my favorite bands, the get up kids!

ugh, my cat needs to stay off my desk...he makes these updates take way longer than they should.

anyway, when i first heard about the get up kids show i had a wayne and garth moment. sorta like when they do the extreme close up, click the link if you dont know what i mean. but yeah, needless to say i was pretty excited.
alright, enough about the get up kids. so, sargent pepperonis is located right next to the garden bowl, downstairs from the magic stick, right nextdoor to the majestic cafe and the majestic theatre. so basically anytime a touring band comes through detroit they usually play at either the stick or the majestic and getting back to me getting old i am usually pretty partied out by the time the show is over with and dread the hour drive back to flint. this is where sgt pepperonis come in.

before i leave, i have made it a point to always grab a slice for the road. these slices are big and cheap and it hits the spot. i wasnt super impressed with my slice the other night but you know, everyone has an off day so ill let it slide. the dough is real good and soft, the crust is big and flakey, the cheese is piled high, and the sauce has a nice kick to it. add some crushed red pepper and some tobasco and you got yourself a tasty treat!

thanks to lance for taking this picture, it was good seeing you dude! and his girlfriend kate! good people.

here is my cat annoying me, but i love him. hi kitty!

here is a link to sargent pepperonis. if you are ever in downtown detroit and want to bowl a few games, check out some bands, or just hang out at the bar then you gotta stop in and check it out.

passport pizza

so today me and phil continued our quest for over sized pizza by going to passport pizza and getting there big 24incher called the big ben. for those of you who dont know, passport is located at the old papa johns location on the corner of miller and ballanger highway.

unlike the benitos big ben, passports version had thin dough was lightly sauced and was very cheesy. it was extremely greasy! but it was good!! this is a picture of phils fingers after eating a slice to show how greasy the crust was. but, to be honest, the grease was more so the butter we got added to the crust and not the pizza itself.

this place has a ton of toppings to chose from and also has a few gluten free options too! its definitely worth checking out. the prices are fair and if you order a second pizza its at a discounted price, so thats cool.

the only complaint i have of the place is it took a good 35 minutes for our pizza to be made and that was after about 15 minutes of the guy taking my order trying to haggle me to buy a drink or an order of bread sticks. come on man, i dont want that shit, just give me my za!

you can follow passport on facebook and twitter. and view their menu here.

wize guys

first off, everyone say hello to my mom!

my mom and my dad picked me up downtown today and we got a few slices at wize guys. they both got the good fellas and a salad and i got a slice of cheese. when word first got out about a pizza place opening downtown me, and all my buddies, we are pretty excited. it took what seemed forever for the place to open up but when it did, OOOOWEEEEE, let me tell you they did not disappoint. the prices are right and the slices are big. ordering a whole pie is my preference since its way fresher than the slices, which seem to sit for a while so you never know how good it will be.

the only complaint i have about going in there and getting a slice is that sometimes its nice and fresh and other times they are a bit old. i wish they would reheat the old slices like they do at other pizza by the slice places (NYPD in ann arbor, bells in lansing) oh, and the hours. they close at ten! they need to be open later. but, they do hook it up at the end of the night. my roommate, tom, sometimes gets 3 or 4 slices for the price of 1!!

but anyway, they do this thing with the crust thats badass. they roll it up like a pretzel and all the garlic and butter they put on the crust actually stays in the crust. check out the picture to see what im talking about.

for some reason, my mom thinks this blog is cool. so im having her explain what she likes about wize guys. and heres what she says...

"i like the atomosphere, the staff was very friendly, and it was clean. my pizza was delicious and i liked how i can get just one slice. i want to go back and get a big one, you know, whatever, however you would say that...dont say that!!!. uhmm, hold on let me see. dont type it while im trying to think! ha. well, ha, dad really liked the sausage! haha. the flavor of the crust was just, so good, and then to dip it in my ranch dressing just made it like a breadstick for a special treat at the end, i sure did not need those calories."

thats word for word what my mom said about the place. shes a weird old lady but its cool. she also says i swear too much. fuck it.

check out the menu here


when i was 14 i worked at a greasy spoon in fenton and during my time there, which turned out to be 7 years(what a waste!) i worked with a tall fat kid with thick coke bottle glasses and a big afro. at first i was thinking "who the fuck is this kid and where did he come from?" and i was just more so intrigued at his size, appearance, and personality that i got to know him. we became good friends and still are ten years later.

anyway, he likes sports and i like sports. in the summer of 06 he lived down the street from me in flint and we would play basketball and watch the pistons nightly. alot of the time tyler would join us since he was just a few houses down at that point in time. so when the pistons entered the playoffs we would always get a big ben half mushroom half pineapple. SO GOOD!

the big ben is a 24inch za. due to its size its best if you let it cool down for a few minutes before digging into it. but once that cheese starts to harden up you are good to go. the cheese is thick, toppings are just right, sauce is sweet, dough is soft and the crust is chewy. what more could you ask for? oh, whats that? Parmesan and garlic crust? yeah, they do that too!

i almost forgot to mention that we once had a big ben eating contest!! we had two teams of 6 people and the team to finish 3 bens first wins. needless to say everyone that participated felt like complete shit for it was one of the hottest days of the summer and we all ate way too much pizza. im pretty sure for week following that day everytime i would sweat i would smell like pizza grease. ugh, the memories. does anyone have pictures of that still? that was a great day.

anyway, here are a few more pictures. one showing off the size of the ben. the other one is to prove that phil is no pizza slacker for he has pizza forever tattooed on his leg.

bear bistro's big ass slice

as promised i said i would make a post about the slices you can get over here at the bear bistro.

well, this is mayberry and his big ass slice of whatever the fuck he got on it pizza. these boys are big, greasy, and just flat out delicious. the only downside of getting a slice is it leaves you hungry for more and also hits you hard 20-30 minutes after eating it and it makes you feel like crap.

but whatever. i dont mind eating good pizza and feeling like crap, its a good trade off in my book!

bear bistro

Bear Bistro
Curtis-Mott Building @ Mott Community College
Monday-Friday 7:30am-8:30pm Saturdays 7:30am-1:30pm
Black Olive and Mushroom Stromboli

So, I work at the Mott College Bookstore and we never had anything good to eat on campus up until the Bear Bistro opened up last winter. Before that we would have to wait until the Little Debbie guy came and gave us expired fudge rounds or donuts, which by no means is a bad thing! i love little debbie! but it just doesnt hit the spot like pizza does.

The pizza at the bistro is by far some of the best stuff i have EVER had! the owners of the bistro are the same people who own Sams Italian Restaurant out in Swartz Creek. anyway, this is the first time i got the stromboli and it was fantastic. i was unaware of the stromboli up until this semester when dan was working with us and he would get it on the regular. i for one was always a fan of just getting a slice but was unable to today since they didnt have any ready when i went over there so i had them make me this. it only took about ten minutes which is good when the work day is dragging on and on. but let me tell you this, by the picture it may look burnt but the dough was super soft, the cheese was packed in there and the toppings wernt over the top. i sprinkled some red pepper flakes on there and topped it off with cholula(we didnt have any franks or tobasco in the break room, bummer!!) and dipped it in the pizza sauce they use which is very sweet in flavor and extreemly good. i ate this about 4 hours ago and am still stuffed like a turkey from it, and thats what i like. cheap food that will hold me over for the rest of the night.

i will have to make another post for the bistro soon for the slices of pizza they have which are gigantic and only run $2!

as this being my first post i wanted it to be the bistro for it is a hidden treasure to most but its deffinetaly worth checking out if you have the chance to. i also want to say that i am no pizza expert and i suck at writing. i will most likely explain things on here as i would in person, so there will be alot of "fucks" "god damns" and "shits" spread throughout my posts.

keep checking back for more updates! and suggest me places to eat.

and so it begins

this is a blog dedicated to my love for pizza!!
