Pizza & fun at Westside Pizza… Delicioso!!

Pizza & fun at Westside Pizza… Delicioso!!

Westside Pizzeria is a neighborhood restaurant/bar I frequent a lot because it’s literally within walking distance to D’s house. At first, I wasn’t a huge fan of their food, until I just started ordering different items every time I came in to see what was good, and what to stay away from. Also, the first time I went, service was so bad, even D was upset. Now, D is very laid back. I mean he has the patience to put up with me so that says a lot about him Plus, he goes to Westside almost every night to have dinner and knows everyone who works there on a first name basis – so I hope you get an idea of just how bad service was that one night! But I had never had such a bad greek salad and sad looking white pizza that our server had recommended.
