Pizza and buffalo fries make average meal

If there’s one thing that Eickhoff is lacking, it’s good pizza.

So, for this week’s food review, I decided to go to a pizza place that I’ve passed by a couple times in Yardley, Pa.

Even though this tiny pizza place is in Pennsylvania, it’s only about a 10-minute drive from campus and pretty easy to get to.

If you’ve ever been to Yardley, I’m sure you know that it’s an adorable little town. And Yardley Pizza fits right in with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

I wanted to try more than just pizza, so my friends and I decided to order a plain pizza, a chicken cheesesteak and buffalo fries, all to split.

After ordering, we sat there for a little longer than expected, but the wait for the food wasn’t too long. However, they didn’t bring all of the food out at the same time, which was a little annoying.

First, they brought the pizza, which smelled and looked delicious, but the waiter forgot to bring us plates. So, we were forced to sit there awkwardly for about five minutes waiting for plates, which we ended up having to get ourselves.

Once we finally did get to eat the pizza, however, we certainly weren’t disappointed. The crust was perfectly crispy and the pizza wasn’t too greasy, which I always like.

Just when we were almost finished the pizza, our buffalo fries arrived, but I believe the name “hot sauce with a couple of french fries” better suits the dish. The fries were literally swimming in a pool of hot sauce and bleu cheese dressing so it was necessary to eat these drenched fries with a fork.

They were also very hot, so if you’re not a fan of spicy food, stay far away. I thought they were really good though, just a little over-killed with hot sauce.

Finally our chicken cheesesteak arrived, about 15 or 20 minutes after we got the pizza. I’m a big fan of chicken cheesesteaks, so of course I enjoyed it, but I wouldn’t say it was anything special — it was definitely a cheesesteak you could get at most other places.

Overall, Yardley Pizza made a pretty good meal. The atmosphere was really cozy and the food was pretty good, even though we didn’t get all the food at the same time. However, I wouldn’t say that it’s worth the drive — there are plenty of great pizza places near the College that have just as good food and are much more convenient. So unless you happen to be in Yardley, I’d stick to your Ewing favorites.
