The best calzone in the DFW area? I believe it is. Or at least it was today!
My wife and I stumbled into this small joint at Frankford and the Dallas North Tollway, without realizing we had found the gold mine of calzone in a rather non-descript exterior just down the shopping strip from Fuddruckers. We almost didn't go in! Thank St. Christopher, we did.
My stomach must have been guiding me by some mysterious power, but I could not quibble with its perspicacity. This luncheon treat $6.95 including a salad and drink, was the Triple Crown Winner of Calzone!
1) A buttery, flaky, browned to perfection crust. Winner of the first race.
2) An interior (up to three selections of your choice) mixed into a bed of ricotta cheese, perfectly blending with the just right amount of mozzarella to make it a slightly chewy. Winner of the second race.
3) A slightly spicy and acidy marinara to act as the counterpoint to the buttery crust and blended cheeses. Winner of the third race.
Mama mia, thatsa great calzone! And one more little slice of heaven as if the above were not enought -- this thing is huge!
I'm going back to tomorrow, just to make sure I wasn't dreaming the entire experience. Somebody pinch me!
Ouch! Let's not be that literal, Okay!
Pros: Great crusts, great flavor, great price, great size
Cons: Not very fancy place to eat.
