Family owned, cheese covered

2 April 2014 By Taylor Seidel, Columnist No Comments

Recently, a friend and I were in the Essex area running errands, when I remembered a restaurant recommendation I received not too long ago.

Pizza John’s was that restaurant’s name and this was my next restaurant on GoodEats.

Located just a few minutes from Eastern Avenue, it’ll be tough to miss the gigantic pizza man structure locate in front of the restaurant.

This Italian restaurant powerhouse has been family owned now since 1966.

Once inside the recently expanded golden restaurant, you approach one of the several registers on the counter to place an order.

Everything on the menu is fresh and most of the menu is made in house.

Atop the list of food to try, has to be one of their homemade pizzas. Starting with fresh dough topped with homemade sauce and fresh grated cheese along with your choice of any of the 10 extra pizza toppings.

You’ll have to try the sausage pizza with butcher-cut ground nuggets of deliciousness.

Another menu item worth a try has got to be an Italian cheesesteak.

Blending a fresh crunchy submarine roll with ground butcher grade beef and your cheese of choice.

This was quite the enjoyable cheesesteak.

A landmark of Baltimore and a favorite of the Essex community this is a fantastic Italian restaurant.

Please Enjoy! Until next time. I wish you GoodEats
