Bites Nearby: Paisano's Pizza
Hungry? Bites Nearby takes a look at Paisano's Pizza.
Each week, Dearborn Patch editors and readers will pick a great restaurant either in town or nearby whose cuisine is considered to reign supreme.
Here's this week's choice:
Overview: Open seven days and until at least 1 a.m. every night, Paisano's is a late night alternative to fast food. They also offer halal meat as a topping. Pizza, subs, salads and BBQ are all on the menu. Click here for some coupons.
Salads: Made fresh daily. For $7.25, you can get a large Greek, antipasto, grilled chicken, or tossed salad. Small versions are available as well.
Submarines: Seven and 14-inch subs, with the smaller topping out at $3.45 and the larger at $6.50. That's right–a handmade, 14-inch sub for under $7. The Sicilian has Italian sasuage, green pepper, onions and spaghetti sauce. Hot Paisano is porcine paradise with bacon, pepperoni, ham, hot peppers, lettuce, tomato and cheese.
Pizza: Sizes ranges from an 8-inch individual up to an 18-inch extra large. All of the usual toppings are available and, as mentioned above, meats are halal. Specialty pizzas include fettucini with alfredo sauce instead of tomato and the Calabrese with roasted red pepper, fresh garlic and seasoned chicken.
Other options: A number of pasta dishes, deep fried fish, chicken and BBQ dishes are on the menu as well.
Signature Dish: Try the deluxe pizza. It has everything on it–and if you're feeling salty, ask them to add anchovies for some brininess.
