The Elmton Bar Pizza
Posted by LOTGK on February 20, 2009
The Elmton restaurant and bar is located in Struthers, Ohio, and is an old favorite place to dine. When we arrived, the place was packed, no parking, even in the parking lot across the street. A sure sign that the food and price is right. We waited about 10 minutes for a table to free up. The waitress squeezed us all at a table. Very cozy indeed.
Our waitress came over to our table in a couple of minutes and Patty and I ordered diet Cokes and the famous Elmton wing dings as an appetizer. The wings were brought to our table in about five minutes. Not bad for crowded evening. As you can see the wings were huge, not your standard fare wing dings. Let me tell you, they were very good. The batter coating was crunchy and tasty and the chicken was surprisingly good as well.
Our main course was Elmton’s pizza. it took about 20-25 minutes total including the wings time so the wait didn’t seem to long at all. The pizza was brought out on a silver platter, steaming hot, just from the oven. The crust was crunchy and thick enough, not soggy. The cheese was melted completely and the sauce zesty enough.
One of my pet peeves concerning pizza is that it is sold to be eaten by the slice. If so, then you would think that the preparer would cut the slices completely. Not for this pizza. We had to use butter knives to saw through the pizza to get the slices separated. However, once we did, the pizza was delicious.
The Grassy Knoll Institute scores 3.5 out of 5 shots and recommends Elmton restaurant for dinner.
