You should've made room for a Fricano's pizza that day! None of this American-ized, three-inch-thick, beef stew on a dough disc nonsense here! Fricano's are paper thin, 12" only, a little burnt around the edge of the home made crust, and is the best pizza you'll ever eat. I challenge you to NOT eat a whole one yourself!So...we went. And, guess what? It kind of sucked. Maybe "sucked" is too harsh a word, but I have NO NEED to ever go back.
It seems that this place has grown over the years and is clearly very popular with the locals. We were there on a Tuesday or Wednesday night and the place was full. Well...actually...it was only half full. But...that's the weird part. You enter into one side of the restaurant and are quickly pulled into this other part - far away from the entrance. Perhaps on the weekends they use this other "newer" side?
We were seated in a booth and had a nice waitress. When Nat asked for a menu, she was a bit surprised and pointed to this little sign on our table. That *was* our menu.
Fine. I'm certainly no snob, so I don't mind a simple menu. Pizza and beer. But...that's seriously it. Just pizza and beer. No salads - which was a bummer to both of us, but we moved on. They offer 1 size pie - I think a 12 incher. Six toppings - order whatever you want. Sounds like the regulars order something called a EBA - Everything But Anchovies.
Based on the comment - and a bit of guidance from the waitress, we ordered 2 pies. One Sausage and Pepperoni and one Mushroom and Green Peppers.
because they clearly care about their pizzas (and their history), but if anyone thinks this is the "Greatest" pizza in Michigan, they need to head 30 miles south and grab a bar stool at Silver Beach Pizza in St. Joe's.
For posterity sake: Here's a shot of the upskirt (below) - not to terribly brown and certainly NOT crisp!
