This is a neighborhood pizza place that the regulars flock to, well, regularly–and not because it's the only choice, it just so happens to be the best one. The BBQ Chicken pizza and freshly-baked cupcakes might have something to do with this.Mo's Pizza and Sandwiches may have been the neighborhood spot since 1979, but that's not because they refuse to change the way they do things. In fact, owner Kevin embraces those types of tweaks that will make each meal a better experience for his customers. Which is why we didn't find bland iceberg salads on the menu. No, here they serve up a mean Spring Salad, with dried cranberries, goat cheese, strawberries and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette. Of course, there's pizza – and plenty of it, too. Every day, Kevin and the team make the stuff from scratch, down to the dough. And as we're seated in the dining room, it feels comfortably crowded – like Thanksgiving dinner.
At first glance, it may seem like Kevin hasn't invested millions of dollars into the building itself–and it's true, he hasn't. But that's because, for him, the focus is squarely on the quality of the food (see: aforementioned salad with goat cheese). He's traveled out to California to learn more about the field-to-can process for tomatoes, and spent an impressive amount of time developing a flavor profile for the cheese on his pizzas. Yes, it's safe to say that he might not be messin' around. One bite of the BBQ Chicken pizza, loaded with BBQ sauce, chicken, caramelized red onion, bacon, cheddar and mozzarella, and it's certain. This is a place that regulars flock to, well, regularly – and not because it's their only choice, it just so happens to be the best one.
