RESTAURANT REVIEW: Culinary Deliveries West Chester


 One of my favorite hometown pizza shops, Culinary Deliveries in West Chester PA! Culinary is known for their famous GOURMET WRAPS including the wackiest and craziest combinations you could ever imagine including the West Chester famous Honey Mustard Chicken Wrap, the Scrapple Wrapple wrap, Pull My Finger Wrap, and the All American Cheesesteak Wrap!


The Honey Mustard Chicken Wrap is a West Chester favorite. Oozing with warm honey mustard, delicious diced chicken, and savory mozzarella cheese. I love enjoying one of these and then crying myself to sleep because I just devoured 10,000 calories.  Every calorie is worth it though, trust me on that!


Where do I even start to describe one of Culinary’s most popular sandwiches dubbed “The BEAST”? The Beast is is LOADED with mozzarella sticks, french fries, mozzarella cheese, CHEESESTEAK meat, lettuce, tomatoes, onions all toasted to absolute perfection in their massive ovens.  You haven’t lived until you tried this beast.

I must admit that I have a weakness for buffalo chicken ESPECIALLY in a warm toasted wrap. Easily my third favorite at Culinary.

Restaurant Review : Franzone’s

Question for you bloggers…What makes a pizza awesome? Is it the cheese? The dough? The sauce? The way its cooked? I wanna hear what you think!

I spent my summers at the jersey shore working and would often eat ” Mac and Manco Pizza” now called ” Manco and Manco” for literally lunch and dinner. It was cheap, cooked evenly throughout the pie, the perfect amount of cheese and definitely a jersey shore tradition. However, after summer was over I would find myself sad because there are not too many family owned, top quality little pizza shops in West Chester, PA… Until I drove 20 minutes, to a pizza shop called Franzone’s. Located in a small town called Bridgeport, 2 miles past King of Prussia, this place I definitely receives an A+ for the most unique tasting pizza I have had!

Franzones has a a dine in restaurant , take out beer and a pizza menu that will not disappoint. Philadelphia Magazine awarded Franzone’s “Best of Philly” and local sports radio voted this shop top ten for pizza in Philadelphia area. I now see why.

Franzone’s makes their fresh dough daily, which you can watch them make it in the window. The sauce is sweet which I have had nothing like it before- that is the secret. There is not too much sauce and its not thick and heavy, very smooth . There is a perfect amount of crust. They place the cheese down first then the sauce. I rarely eat more than one slice of pizza but when I had Frazones, I was able to eat 4, it was that good and addicting!  The picture does not do it justice, you will just have to try it out for yourself if anytime you are in this small town!

College Town Favorite

                                       photo(25)                        photo(46)

  Conveniently located on one of the most popular streets in WC for college students, Riggtown Pizza is quite the hot spot for your unique pizza flavors, hot wraps, and baked loaded cheese fries. There are many pizza shops in West Chester but this particular one holds a special place in my heart. One night when I was craving a late night snack during finals, I decided to try Riggtown Oven because I heard such rave reviews on their “Honey Mustard Chicken Pizza”. As I walked in I saw a familiar face, it was my first grade teacher. I asked him if he was still teaching and he mentioned that he recently stopped because he wanted to follow his dream which was opening a pizza shop in the college town. So maybe teaching wasn’t for him , he knew in his heart what he wanted to do and he followed through with it without any regrets- something I try to strive for each day.

What I ordered: Postruki Wrap ( Chicken Fingers, fried onions, Bacon, Lettuce , Tomato, Cheddar, Homemade Garlic Mayo). No complaints here! Who doesn’t like melted cheese, garlic, and chicken fingers?! Of course I had to add on a side of fries- not your normal fries. Not frozen. Freshly cut russet potatoes sprinkled with sea salt!
