4. Yinz Guys Pizza
The locally owned and operated pizza shop does simple well—their plain cheese pizza has a thick and fluffy crust. Their hoagies are just as yummy, including their spicy buffalo chicken sandwich. For those who’d rather stick to salads, the grilled cajun chicken salad is a must. For more information on Yinz Guys Pizza, click here.
