Follansbee Edition: DeFelice Bros. Pizza
At my "home" home in Wellsburg, there are few restaurants. There are even fewer that deliver to the giant hill I grew up on. And, sometimes, when it's a nice evening and you're visiting with family, it's good to just get dinner delivered right to you.
DeFelice Bros. Pizza is one of the few options available. Now, they are no DiCarlo's. But, they do deliver and offer entrees besides just pizza: salads, sandwiches, wings, calzones and pasta. That was perfect for this evening when my dad wanted a salad, mom wanted a philly cheesesteak, and I was salivating over a meatball sub.
There are four DeFelice locations in West Virginia: Follansbee (which we ordered from), Bethlehem, Moundsville and Wheeling. There are also four right over the border in Ohio: Martin's Ferry, Shadyside, St. Clairsville and Wintersville.
After a little bit of a wait, our food arriving hot. Dad sang praises of his salad (complete with extra chicken), which came with a side of bambino bread. Mom's cheesesteak has a ton of meat, cheese, peppers and onions. She was a happy camper.
And my meatball sub was pretty killer. I know you probably can't tell from the photo, but the soft, lightly toasted bun housed a half dozen perfectly seasoned meatballs. The sauce is slightly sweet, but it has a good flavor. I think it was probably a perfect marriage of my desperate craving and a solid sandwich that fulfilled that. Whatever it was, I know I left wit ha happy tummy that night.
