Editor’s Note: In 2021, Michael and Nicole Borrell began reviewing Lebanon Valley’s restaurants and eating attractions as the Lebanon Valley Food Critics. Since then, the couple has aimed to offer unbiased reviews of the eating and drinking establishments the Lebanon Valley has to offer.

Today I left my office and was looking for a good, quick lunch to hit the spot. In the Lebanon Valley that means pizza.
I’m not a huge pizza fan; I only have it a few times a year. But today I travelled out to Jonestown and stopped on the east end of Market Street and went to Pizza Town.

Today’s meal included a thick slice of pepperoni & bacon pizza ($5.00), slice of white broccoli pizza ($4.50) and a basket of chicken tenders and French fries ($8.50).
Our thick slice was an impulse choice as we were standing at the counter, it looked so good. Pizza Town has a sweet sauce and on this slice was used sparingly. This allowed for the saltiness of the bacon and pepperoni to stand out with the crunchy crust. We would have been full on this slice alone.
Next up was the white broccoli, which was not short on broccoli crowns. The ricotta doesn’t allow the slice to dry out in the oven and keeps it flavorful while eating. Just like the meat slice, there is no grease left behind and it has a great crunch of the crust.
The chicken tender basket came with five tenders and a pile of shoestring fries.
Our take: Pizza Town has a wide menu with affordable prices. The quality of the ingredients shows within the pizza slices. The pie has a delectable flavor and doesn’t fall apart while eating and isn’t loaded with grease. As a non-pizza fan, I can’t wait to come back.
