Sundays in My Neck of the Woods


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! 

If you would like to visit the Saco House of Pizza website so you can learn more about them and browse their menu, click here.  And if you have no difficulty walking, I would definitely recommend this restaurant as a great place for casual dining!

Note:  I was not compensated in any way for this review.  We paid for our meals and the opinions expressed are mine alone.

We ate at a similar pizza place today, but they actually have a buffet. Delicious!

Those three stacked pizzas look really yummy! It's interesting that all your sandwiches are made on a bread roll. Over here a sandwich is usually two slices of bread with a filling.
A roll with a filling is called by the name of the filling, i.e. salad roll, turkey roll, seafood roll etc.

I'm like you. If I'm in a pizza place, by GOD I'm going to eat pizza. Now my husband? He'll get something else to eat! I had to laugh! I searched your pizza photo looking for the bite taken out....it took me a few seconds to find it! Kind of like "Where's Waldo!"

I always dab pizza with a napkin, too. Looks yummy!

Kelley said...

Looks good! For lunch today, we went to a pizza restaurant owned by a Greek family. Maybe this is common?

We LOVED Saco! Too bad we missed this place.
Is that where Funtown USA is? I can't remember if it's there or Biddeford. In any case, my brother and I traumatized our niece there many years ago when we forced her to go on that Pirate Ship (or whatever it's called) ride. She's 27 now and married. And she even invited me to the wedding.
But, she made me sit in the back with my brother.

Today I was smart. I remembered to eat before I came to read your Sunday post so I wouldn't leave and wolf down everything in the refrigerator. That sure looked like good pizza!

Vicki: I get the same urge where photos of pizza are concerned!

jayne: smart lady!

Allison said...

I have to agree that if I am at a pizza place, I have to get pizza.
