With a menu parked at the intersection of familiar comfort foods and savory southwestern spices, Jessie's Fireshack & Pizzeria welcomes guests in search of innovative ways to quell their hearty appetites. From traditional platters of chicken wings and empanadas to gourmet foot-long hot dogs dressed in mashed potatoes, bacon, and cheese sauce, the kitchen staff puts its unique spin on numerous tried-and-true favorites. Diners can also dig into more innovative concoctions, such as carne mechada, a Puerto Rican style pot roast, or brisket enchiladas. No matter which meal they choose, diners can chow down as they sip on cool draft pints of Yuengling or Miller Lite or catch highlights on the eatery's three HD TVs.
The culinary crew at Pete’s A Pie Pizzeria prepares each morsel from scratch using fresh vegetables and herb-infused olive oils. Specialty pan or Brooklyn-style pizzas marry swirls of homemade sauce—including marinara, creamy garlic, and spicy barbecue—with corresponding toppings and ringtones to create one-of-a-kind concoctions such as the barbecue-chicken pie or the salty pig—a blend of prosciutto, fresh basil, and red onions. Since it's comprised solely of a bustling kitchen and pickup counter, the eatery offers delivery or carryout only.
Flickering neon signs draw the eyes of passerby to Matese Pizzeria Ristorante, which sums up its menu in three simple words: pizza, pasta, heroes. The neighborhood joint has prepared their specialty pies and pasta since 1978, pairing pizzeria classics with Italian veal and seafood entrees. In their casual dining room, towering refrigerators of soft drinks and racks of chips stand next to wooden tabletops. Delivery staff rush steaming packages all over town, responding to phoned-in requests, online orders, and meatball-shaped smoke signals.
Italian and American classics top the dark wood tables at DiMaria's Brick Oven Pizza and Kitchen, where red booths enthrone diners chowing down between sprawling windows. Diners may avail themselves of plentiful free parking, or decide to dine at a table as they share appetizers such as the buffalo calamari, crispy, marine morsels served with blue cheese. A trio of eggplant rollatini stuffed with ricotta and mozzarella ushers in the veal madeira decked in mozzarella and asparagus simmered in mushroom sauce. Capers and peppers splay across a plate of wine-drenched pork pizzaiola, and garlic-speckled spinach accompanies the chicken oreganata baked in seasoned breadcrumbs so it stays both tender and texturally accessible to chopsticks.
