I know it’s been awhile since my last post, but I promise I’ll continue to keep this up to speed from this point forward. I wanted to take this opportunity to review by far the best pizza joint in the entire parish of Baton Rouge.
Johnny D’s has been around Baton Rouge for a few years now – formerly Johnny DeAngelo’s off of Jones Creek, it moved locations to Coursey Blvd. about 5 months ago or so. They specialize in New York style pizza and Italian cuisine. Johnny is the owner/operator of the restaurant, and he is literally there almost every single day… whether it’s talking to customers, making the pizzas himself, or just walking around the restaurant, he’s great to interact with. Now, on to the pizza…
Literally, this pizza melts in your mouth. It’s made with a great dough base, the slices are humongous, and the toppings are all fresh and inspired with homemade seasonings. They usually have a buffet running weekdays for $6.99, which includes all the pizza you can eat plus salad and a soft drink. Now correct me if I’m wrong, but cardboard CiCi’s pizza charges about $5.50 for their buffet, and no drink… I promise, it’s worth the extra buck and a half to eat all you can of Baton Rouge’s best pizza joint.
Also, if you’re inclined to order from the menu during the buffet or visit Johnny D’s for dinner, you have to… I repeat, HAVE to… try the lasagna. Probably the best lasagna I’ve ever had, and I’m a person who enjoys a nice plate of lasagna.
Overall, Johnny D’s is a great atmosphere and a pleasant, inexpensive, truly delicious lunch or dinner out. Swing by Johnny D’s anytime Sunday through Saturday, located at:
13214 Coursey Blvd.
Baton Rouge, LA 70816
Swing by Mon-Fri for the $6.99 buffet and Johnny will make you a pizza if you don’t like what’s there… great service, great people, great food. I HIGHLY recommend Johnny D’s. Check it out today, or visit their website for more information on menu, operating hours, and location (TIP: sign up for Johnny’s newsletter, he is always sending out specials on short notice and coupons for pizza): www.johnnydeangelospizza.com
Until next time…
