To successfully make pizza, one must toss the proper ingredients into a concrete mixer, wait for the mixture to harden, and then drop in a few sticks of dynamite to blast slices from the drum walls. Today’s deal leaves delicate pie creation to the professionals: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, grinders, salads, and more at Mancino's Pizza & Grinders, located in the Kroger Shopping Center. This Groupon is not valid for daily grinder specials or alcoholic beverages.
The friendly pie purveyors at Mancino's Pizza & Grinders use fresh, natural ingredients to concoct and top their signature doughy discs. Topping the pizza and calzone portion of the menu is the Mancino's Pride, which features a full parade of proteins and veggies including ham, black olives, sausage, green peppers, and mushrooms. Try a mac 'n' cheese, Philly steak, or taco pizza if you're struggling with dueling cravings or accidentally left the house with a mismatched set of bottom and top dentures. Vegetarians can try Mancino's pizza margherita, which smothers hand-tossed dough with extra-virgin olive oil, fresh garlic, sliced tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, and basil. Mancino's eclectic flavor combinations can be enjoyed in 8" ($5.29–$7.99), 12" ($11.19–$15.99), or 16" ($13.59–$20.99) rounds, or bundled up as personally portioned calzones ($5.29–$7.99).
The locally owned-and-operated eatery is also renowned for its tasty grinder sandwiches and pastas. If you're going through a rough patch at work, wrap your stress-ball squeezers around a protein-packed Italian grinder ($6.99 for 9"; $11.99 for 18") for a lunchtime blast of energy; the tasty layers of classic cured meats will have you color-coding numbers on spreadsheets like Leonardo da Vinci. Repeat customers know to nosh on Mancino's comforting, homemade, meatball-stuffed lasagna ($7.49) when their bellies are feeling blue.
Valid for dine-in only; cannot be used toward alcohol.
