Mickey’s Pizza

Today on the Bite Tonight: Mickey’s Pizza.

Located on Fort St. in Lincoln Park, MI, Mickey’s Pizza has been a local favorite for as long as I can remember. As a child, I loved traveling to Mickey’s with my parents to pick up our pie and watch as the professionals toss the hand made dough up in the air from behind the clear glass window. A few weeks ago, my mom and I were craving that Mickey’s taste, so we ordered a pizza. See how they ranked.

Atmosphere: 3 out of 5 bites (typical carry out setting, no dining area)

Price: 4 out of 5 bites

Quality/Taste: 4.5 out of 5 bites

Service: 4.5 out of bites

Wow Factor: 4 out of 5 bites (local, mom and pop joint)

Hand tossed round: Topped with Pepperoni, onion, and green pepper with a garlic, butter, Parmesan flavored crust. The dough was perfectly cooked with a nice chew, and not greasy or soggy. Fresh ingredients and the right amount of cheese. The flavored crust was delicious and I really liked how the cheese was browned up.

I will admit that when it comes to pizza, my favorites include B.C’s and Hungry Howie’s (yea, yea I know, a franchise)?? However, Mickey’s Pizza is a top contender. Service is good, food is even better, and the price is spot on. Plus, it’s a family owned business that has been serving the area for over 20 years. They offer coupons, delivery, and have a menu consisting of pizza, salads, grinders, and their famous Amiga bread. The only downfall is that there isn’t a website so it’s tough to find an online menu. However, their Cajun flavored crust is the best I’ve ever had! If you haven’t tried Mickey’s Pizza, you’re missing out. It’s the perfect guest for Football Sunday!

Vito's Pizzeria

Today on the Bite Tonight: Vito’s Pizzeria.

My friend Amanda and I decided to grab lunch and we agreed to check out Vito’s. Located on Fort St in Lincoln Park, Vito’s has been a neighborhood “go to” for years. With new owners (new, but still in the same family) Vito’s is still cooking up yummy pies with that same “sweet sauce” they’re known for. See how they ranked.

Atmosphere: 2 out of 5 bites

Price: 2 out of 5 bites

Quality/Taste: 4.5 out of 5 bites

Service: 4 out of 5 bites

Wow Factor: 3 out of 5 bites

White Pizza: Feta, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheeses with a garlic sauce. We added ham, onions and cajun crust. Delicious! Out of all the pizza I’ve had, this one ranked top 5. The pizza was cooked perfectly, had a good balance of sauce and toppings, and the cajun crust was slightly sweet and spicy. It was a little pricey since we added toppings and it was a specialty pizza, but it was worth it.

Vito’s is a good local hang out with pretty decent specials on food and drinks. Service was good, but we were the only table at 1 pm on a Sunday. Unfortunately our medium white pizza ended up costing almost $17 with tax because Vito’s nickel and dimed us, even charging $1 for two sides of ranch (our server even suggested them, but failed to mention the up charge). The pizza was pretty tasty though so I will be back for more.

Thanks for the lunch date, Mandy! It was fun.
