“There is no other place to get the original Tarrantini Panzarotti”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

I have followed Franco's since there were old orange booths when it was across from the Westmont train station next to the barber . Since expanding and downsizing from Westmont to Haddonfield and now Haddon Twp located down from Rita's and True Value Hardware on Haddon Ave this is reportedly the final move of this iconic place. I was a true believer in the purist cheese Panzarotti only. But a couple of years back I tried the hot sausage . Yum indeed. The panzarottis bring me back time and time again . I send them to my Florida friends . The final location change brings a bigger site which it needed. The menu is decent but who needs that when the fryer is running with cheesy goodness ?

“Worth the Trip”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

On a recent trip to Collingswood, I stopped by one of my favorite SJ haunts for a delicious pepperoni panzarotti. Wish Franco's had one in Rehoboth Beach Delaware.

“Panzarottis invented here!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

I always order a panzarotti and have never been disappointed in almost 40 years, since eating at their former Westmont location as a teen.

“Best Panzarotti”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

Just get it. Not often, because it;s not good for you. But try that panzarotti at least once. FANTASTIC. The staff was not the friendliest, and the restaurant needed some TLC. Nothing appeared to be dirty though.
