I try not to go in-between visits to a restaurant I like for six months or more. But, 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 Son of a Pizza
On my first trip 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 sauce and garlic-parm cheese were just that. If you can skip 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. So I ask, fresh or frozen burger patty?
Now, I hoped it was on point with the question answered correctly. 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 opted for the Sicilian-style pizza topped with pepperoni, sausage, and bacon. I prefer their regular pizza, but I did like the topping combination.
Finally, a hamburger sub is on the menu that needs to find its way into my life. I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that it will be absolutely killer.
