Kenova Edition: Evaroni's Pizza

EvaronisEvaroni's Pizza, located in Kenova, found itself on the 101 Most Unique Places to Dine in WV list. So, I found myself in Kenova.

I visited on New Year's Eve, and they were totally slammed. So, while the nice brickwork outside looked as if it could be this inviting Italian cove full of delicious food, I only saw the entrance. I placed my order inside and was quoted a 30-minute or so wait. Veronica and I left to run a few errands. And about 30 minutes later, I get in line for the drive-thru to pick up my pizza.

EvaronisApparently, somebody forgot to hang up my ticket, and they frantically said just 10 more minutes. I pulled ahead, muttered under my breath a lot and generally felt all around frustrated. We were already running late, and this set us over. But I waited, and waited, and waited some more until they finally brought my pizza out.

Fortunately, it was so, so worth it. This pizza has a really sweet sauce. I don't typically love that, but it had some depth there. It's not a cheap sweet where a ton of sugar is just dumped in. It's a cultivated, marinated sweet that just gives the pizza an incredible flavor. The crust was crisp (probably because I scarfed it down as soon as it was handed to me). Very good.

So, go. Just don't be pressed for time when doing so.
