If you are around the University City area, this is the place to go for some awesome pizza. They have lots of kinds to choose from.

Savas seems to be very popular with the college students in the neighborhood, but I can't recommend it for more than snacks--and they do have a decent selection of draft beers. My most recent meal included hummus (always good) and the souvlaki (marinated pork). The souvlaki was three wooden skewers of small chunks of pork, alternating with very small pieces of what looked like bell pepper, a large helping of rice, a cup of the yogurt sauce, and a crescent roll. The meat was very dry--apparently overcooked--and not very pleasant.

I have been to Savas on many occasions and will keep coming back because I love their food. The prices are reasonable and there is a lot to choose from.

Excellent pizza (pineapple/ham and bbq chicken), quick service and let us hang around long after finishing the pizza to wait out a torrential downpour. We were only drinking water with this meal and my only recommedation would be to provide glasses larger than 6 ounces and more water for six guests! We had to pour many times to accomodate the warm weather and salty pizza.

Located in a cool little neighborhood about a 5 minute walk from the Sheraton University City, Savas is a combination of a little take-out pizza place and a really nice neighborhood restaurant. The pizza can be ordered by the slice or full and comes out of that brick oven hot and crisp with fresh ingredients. They have a nice array of microbrewed bottled beer and two slices and a beer was $10 even. You have a choice to dine outside along the sidewalk (weather dependent), in the little take-out area at the counter, or in the restaurant at their large and comfortable bar, or in the nicely lit and decorated restaurant - very nice atmosphere all the way around to match the good food.
