The Pizza Store

My family has been going to the Pizza Store for years, even my sister worked there for a brief stint in the mid 90's, man that seems like a long time ago! But really not too much has changed with the place, it is a quiet pizza place, you will not find video games, big screen TV's or animated mice anywhere here. In fact on the Saturday night we visited, we were the only ones in the place. The waiter said it has been hit and miss, in terms of being busy, so this was definitely a slow time for them, lets hope it is not because of the food.
Here is my favorite item on the Pizza Store menu, the Sausage Roll. This is a sausage cooked in beer, wrapped in dough, baked and them brushed with garlic butter and parmesan cheese. Really a tasty dish, the sausage is cooked perfectly, and there is plenty of mozzarella cheese. I also like to have this with ranch.
Lastly, above is their Buffalo Wings. I really like the flavor of the wings here. The hot wings are not too hot, but have a good amount of spice. I would rather have ordered the suicide wings, but this was my sister's pick. The wings are not that big, and some of them are lacking on the meat, but you can get 25 of them for $11. That works out to 44 cents a wing, a real steal.
I like the Pizza Store. Do not be fooled by other places that call themselves The Pizza Store. These include places in Laguna Hills, and Orange. Not sure if they used to be owned by the same people, the menus are very similar, if not identical. I recently went to the Pizza Store in Laguna Hills, and it was not the same. The sausage roll was not nearly as good. The Pizza Store in Placentia does list two other locations on their menu, San Giovanni's in Dove Canyon, and Grascio's in Brea.
All right, so Pizza Store gets big points for the value that you get for your money. Their prices are very good, and you get a decent meal. So out of five cash registers, (because you can not have a store without a cash register), five being best to zero being worst, Pizza Store gets 3 cash registers.
Pizza Store does not have a web site, but you can find their menu here: http://www.sporq.com/placentia/thepizzastore/2091eorangethorpeave
