Luigi's Pizza

We have been to Luigi’s twice now thanks to the Infamous Northern Lights Coupon Book!  First time we got a ham sub, a 2 philly cheese steak sandwiches.
Luigi’s is a take out place so you have to take it with you or have the food delivered. That’s okay, we just hung out in our car and enjoyed our lunch. 
The sandwiches are enormous!  And delicious!  You can easily share one or save the other half for dinner.
The second time we did Luigi’s we tried the Gyro Calzone and the Stromboli. Our coupon indicated we had to order the Large size so we did. Luigi gave us a strange but brief look and went back to the kitchen to make our order. It took just 15 short minutes to make them from scratch. Nothing sitting around pre-made here!  We took our feast back to the car. It was then we realized the mistake we made!  Luigi’s look was because the LARGE size was indeed enough to feed 2+ people EACH! And now we had 2 larges and only 2 people. Luckily we have 4 hungry kids at home so this lunch made some great leftovers for school lunches the next day! 
The Gyro Calzone has no red sauce and is loaded with gyro meat, mozzarella cheese, and feta, with a generous sprinkling of parmesan on top. It was most certainly a Yummy in the Tummy meal. 
The Stromboli is similar to a calzone except it is log shaped instead of a 1/2 circle. This one was bulging with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, and cheese and sauce. Again, a meal to salivate over. 
For a tiny hole in the wall restaurant, Luigi’s is one you should not miss!!
