DiCarlo's Pizza Buffet in Vienna

DiCarlos buffet

Y'all. I have died and gone to heaven. Two of the most beautiful words in the English language have combined to form more than the sum of their parts: DiCarlo's. Buffet.

DiCarlos buffetIf you've been with me for a while, you're familiar with my love for DiCarlo's Pizza - an Ohio Valley specialty that bakes the pizza and then puts the cheese on after it's come out of the oven.

DiCarlos buffetThere are a number of locations throughout the Northern Panhandle, and I've checked just about all of them off my list. But recently a new specialty caught my eye.

DiCarlos buffetThe Vienna DiCarlo's location began offering a pizza, pasta, salad and more buffet on Sunday (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and Monday (5 p.m to 8 p.m.). Did I make a special trip to Vienna just to try this buffet?

DiCarlos buffetAbso-frickin-lutely.

DiCarlos buffetWhen I walked in, I immediately took a look at the buffet. First, they have an entire salad bar (that was untouched for me), then penne in marinara or alfredo. There were cheesesticks, breadsticks, steak hoagies, and pepperoni rolls. There was event a cinnamon stick dessert thingy.

DiCarlos buffetThe pizzas included cheese, pepperoni, and two various veggie pizzas. They all had melted cheese - which makes sense since they're on a buffet - so I grabbed a few slices to try them out.

DiCarlos buffetAfter my first plate, a server asked if I'd like to see anything specific on the buffet. I asked if they could maybe do one that is "DiCarlo's" style (aka with the unmelted cheese, since this place serves it both ways). She said they can't really because of the hot bar. Makes sense, I thought.

DiCarlos buffetSo I got a few more pieces, and then a server comes out with TWO pieces of "DiCarlo's" style pizza for me!! I was SO excited (but also very full). Folks, it just doesn't get much better than this. You gotta try it while you can!
