This old-school family restaurant with a host of inviting seating booths and serves up a range of different pizzas for their customers. Fans of Mediterranean flavors can choose from ingredients like olives, feta cheese, pesto, and garlic, while the more adventurous may want to opt for the inventive pizzas that translate dishes like hot wings, potato skins, and Philly cheesesteaks into toppings.

Mattie’s Wood Fired Pizza
