Roman-Style Pizza in Philadelphia at Rione

I have to admit before Rione opened, I don’t believe I had heard of “Roman-style” pizza, or pizza al taglio. Then again, I’m not a pizza aficionado.

It’s a very simplistic set up with … Continue reading

Order on Grubhub in South Jersey. Yep!

Grubhub has been around and helping Philadelphians get good grub delivered for many years, at least since 2009 if I recall correctly. I used the site frequently when I lived in the city and it was always a good experience. Especially because it often opened up many delivery options. When Grubhub asked if we could … Continue reading
