Saco House of Pizza is located at 162 Main Street in a historical building constructed in the late 1800s in Saco, Maine. The pizza place was opened in 1988 by a couple from Greece, and even though the ownership has changed hands, the quality of the food has remained constant.
There's plenty of seating in a large number of booths,
plus there's a comfy couch for sitting in while you wait for a takeout order!
You do go up to the counter to place your order and pay for it. Then it is brought to your table.
There are a variety of pizza toppings from which to make a selection, or if you prefer a different choice, there are salads, calzones, sandwiches, and various pasta dishes.
We started off with some chicken wing dings, which are chicken wings which haven't been smothered in hot sauce. They came with a choice of dipping sauces (we chose Ranch), and they were, meaty, crispy, and delicious! (I confess to eating a couple before remembering to take a photo!)
Mr. Eva had salad which had iceberg lettuce, lots of green peppers, onions, and tomatoe slices.
He followed that with a tuna sub with lettuce. Note: pictured above is HALF of his sandwich; he was munching on the other half when I took the shot!
I can't seem to pass up pizza when I'm at a pizza joint, no matter how many other choices they offer! Although it seemed to be rather greasy (I ended up blotting some of the excess oil up with a couple of napkins), the taste was wonderful!. The crust, which they make fresh every da, was thin, but with a crispy ring around the outside; just perfect! (Try not to notice that I took a bite of a slice before I snapped the picture!)
The dining room was all decked out for Christmas with garlands everywhere and a lovely tree added a festive touch.
The food was excellent; everything we ate, we loved. The only negative I saw was that the place is not really handicap accessible. There is no parking at the door, as the street is right off the sidewalk. Although there is one 15-minute parking place around the corner, presumably for takeout customers, the rest of the parking results in a fair hike for someone with severe arthritis, like my husband. Also, one must go down stairs to reach the restroom. For these reasons, we probably won't go back, even though we loved the food. I wish they would put in a drive-through window on the outside wall. We would become regulars in that circumstance, for sure!
