Old City Pizza

Old City Pizza Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato 

We were looking for a casual place to grab a quick bite.  This place was around the corner from our hotel.  Clearly a "mom and pop" type of place, very no-frills, just a handful of tables.

The menu includes burgers, Greek specialties and hoagies and grinders (Can someone please explain to this New Yorker the difference between a "hoagie" and a "grinder"?  Back home we call them all "heros" or "subs".)

I ordered the "spaghetti with veal parmigiana", a generous portion of spaghetti topped with a modest portion of veal, not bad for $9, and very tasty.  Garlic bread was tasty but not greasy.

He had a burger -- the burgers are cooked fresh, but not to order -- they won't serve it medium rare.  The burger was topped with bacon and mozzarella cheese.  the fires were hot and crisp.  Cole slaw was merely OK.

Another night we did take-out.  Loved my meatball grinder -- a huge sandwich -- but the mozzarella fries were "meh".  Pizza -- the "mega slice" is the equivalent of two ordinary slices. Very satisfying.

Overall a satisfactory experience.

You're making me hungry...

No, I don't know the difference. Then again, we call everything something different out here on the west coast anyway.
