I try not to go six months or more in-between visits to a restaurant I like. In the case of Son of a Pizza (30390 Old Dixie Highway, Homestead), it might have something to do with it being over an hour’s drive from my home.
First Visit for Pizza
On my first visit to Son of a Pizza, I was with my cousin Fred in tow. We ordered garlic rolls, loaded fries (topped with cheese, jalapeños & pepperoni), hot wings, a meatball sub, a white pizza, and a pepperoni pizza.
I also snapped a picture of their fried mozzarella block on its way to someone else’s table. Luckily they didn’t get creeped out.
The loaded fries with cheese, jalapeños, and pepperoni replacing its meat sibling bacon was an interesting choice. By interesting choice, I mean that it was a great idea. The white pizza was a perfect specimen. Nothing beats the taste of fresh garlic on a white pie.
Second Visit for a Patty Melt?
Fred and I would return a few weeks later for a second round.
The garlic rolls topped with cheese were winners. But even without the cheese, they should be an essential part of your order.
While we’re talking next-level greatness, the wings tossed in buffalo hot and garlic/parm cheese was just that. If you can skip on sharing them, then go greedy. It’s worth it. We saw a patty melt on the daily specials board, so I had to find out what the deal was. I ask, fresh or frozen burger patty?
Now, with the question answered correctly, I hoped it was on point. If you look up patty melt in the dictionary, it should mention Son of a Pizza with a picture; it was right on.
By the way, the correct answer to my previous question is always fresh.
We also opt for the Sicilian-style pizza topped with pepperoni, sausage, and bacon. I prefer their regular pizza, but I did like the topping combination. Finally, there’s a hamburger sub on the menu that needs to find its way into my life. I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that it’s going to be killer.
