I went into Lazaro’s (flying Han Solo) on Tuesday preparing to be underwhelmed. Nothing against the place, but I always hear great things about it, and my pizza there is always…fine. I mean, it’s good, but it’s nothing special, and extremely greasy. I like grease as much as the next guy, but not when there are giant puddles of it on my pie that need to be sopped up with a napkin. On Tuesday, I went pepperoni style. It was a lot less greasy than usual, and was actually pretty good. The crust is kind of crunchy, and I personally like soft crust better. The ambiance? Well Lazaro’s is definitely a pick up and delivery place, but I do like the fact that they have a lot of Philly sports stuff on the walls. Gives it a nice Philly feel. And then, inexplicably, they have three New York license plates above one of the doors. WTF? That costed them half a pepperoni. Give them 2 and a half!
P.S. When I got hungry later in the day, I didn’t return to Lazaro’s. Instead I got a meatball sandwich from the cart on 19th and South. Damn good sandwich. Give it four meatballs!
