I love Sal & Mookies pizza! Theirs is the kind of pizza that makes you long for a visit to the Big Apple. The restaurant's menu helps reinforce that thought by naming the different kinds of specialty pizzas after key New York landmarks. Want a pizza with gorgonzola, sun-dried tomatoes, spicy Italian sausage, and Kalamata olives? Order the "Bowery." Fancy mozzarella, provolone, yellow cheddar, grilled chicken and sautéed green bell peppers & onions - then step right up and order the "Rockaway Beach." In the mood for mozzarella, pepperoni, spicy Italian sausage, prosciutto, and Genoa salami? Take the "A" train straight to the "Meat Packing District." Or, if you like (as I do) a little bit of everything then order a "Riker's Island."
Not in the mood for Pizza? Plenty of other options on the menu ranging from subs to salads to panini sandwiches to strombolis and even burgers. They also offer several great pasta dishes and have a good kids menu. They even have homemade ice cream for dessert.
Kids menu is available. Restaurant is closed on Mondays. Location is just off North State Street near the MS Medical Center - about 10 minutes west of I-55 at either the Woodrow Wilson or Lakeland Drive West exits.
Service is great. The servers know the products, so feel free to ask for recommendations.
