Nothing is quite as satisfying as a greasy pizza pie, shoved inside your mouth, slice-by-slice, until it's gone and inside your stomach. Nothing!
(Well…nothing save for a variety of incredibly unhealthy desserts, in our humble opinion.) And though Uptown is most definitely not hurting for pizzerias (they've got their fair share
), Bojono's stands head and shoulders above them all.
Or at least side by side.
Truly, the pizza here is good, good, good. There's no way it's good for you—frankly, you'll be lucky if you don't have to get your stomach pumped from all the grease—but that's not nearly as important as how it tastes. Pizza comes thin ($10 for 12 inches, $12 for 14 and $14.30 for 16) or pan or stuffed ($12 for 12-inch and $14.35 for 14). Specialty pizzas include garlic, oil and tomato, vegetarian delight, taco pizza and BBQ pizza ($13.50, $16.50 or $19.50, depending on the size). Thankfully, they also sell pizza by the slice. Cheese is $2 and sausage and pepperoni are $2.35. Appetizers are cheap ($1.25-$5) and range from toasted ravioli, garlic bread (with cheese), pizza bread, side order meatballs, side order sausage, mozzarella sticks, hot wings, onion rings, jalepeno poppers and French fries. Speaking of healthy, your only option in that department is a salad, be it Bojono's salad (romaine, salami, fontinella cheese, tomato, celery, carrots, Bermuda onion, olives, pepperonoicini and roasted peppers with a special dressing) for $3.95 or $7.25, the house salad for $3.95 or the chicken Caesar salad for $5.25 or $8.
No, the food at Bojono's isn't the best in the world (it might be the greasiest, though), but it'll cure what ails you and satisfy any pizza yearnings that happen to swing your way. Stop on by, big guy, or order for delivery
Average cost: $10-$20
