Bingo's Pizzeria -- Essex Junction
Wedged in between a jeweler and a dry cleaner in a rather non-descript shopping plaza just passed the fairgrounds, Bingo's Pizzeria is short on aesthetics and long on taste. The daily special ($1 for a slice of cheese pizza) and a small Pepsi cost me less than $5. I came in shortly after the noontime rush and although the table and chairs were clean, I table I sat at was out of napkins, but this is a pizza joint not fine dining -- it's expected, it adds the necessary ahhmm-be-aunts. "Best whole-wheat crust in town," the owner told me. Not being able to do a more scientific taste test, I would have to agree. Bingo's serves an average crust (not too thick or too thin) pizza and the whole wheat crust was crunchy and satisfying. Although there was an all-you-can-stuff-in-your-pizza-hole buffet, I stuck with a couple of slices, but a quick glance revealed the buffet comes with a tossed salad as well. The best thing anyone can say about any restaurant is that they would go back and that they would recommend it to family and friends. On both counts, bingo!
