This past week I needed to run in to town and get some errands done during lunchtime, so of course I was going to pick up lunch along the way. I stopped for a slice and sandwich from J&S Pizza.

Located in the unit block of West Main Street in downtown Annville, this place offers dine-in and take-out service. They have a menu posted online that has pizza, calzones, dinners and everything in between. Limited parking is available in the back and along the Main Street.
For our lunch today, we got a slice of buffalo chicken pizza ($3.99) and special Italian sub sandwich ($8.15).
The slice came with grilled chicken, ranch, mozzarella, and mild buffalo sauce. The slice itself presents beautifully. It isn’t often a slice looks that good out of the oven.
Plenty of ranch made this ranch lover happy eating this slice. Imagine how good this would be if was hot sauce instead of mild? But I digress. A crunchy crust finished off this near perfect slice.
The special Italian came on a fresh roll with capicola and extra mayo. It could also come toasted, but I didn’t get it toasted. I always order my sandwiches with extra mayo, and they added plenty of mayo for my liking.
This sandwich is not overloaded with the meats and cheese, it has the right amount. To me it was a regular Italian. Possibly it tastes different toasted, but I’m unlikely to find that one out on my own.
Our take: J&S is a small pizza shop with a very expansive menu. The prices are fair, and the portion sizes fit. They put together a good pie and has the taste to match. You will get a good quality sandwich. It should be easy to find what you’re looking for on the menu. The only thing its lacking is a unique dish.
