Ben and Mrs Too rarely order pizza out, greatly preferring to make our own at home. Back in this past winter, when our weather seemed to be coming straight from the north pole, we checked their website and found that Potomac Pizza offers quite an eclectic variety of items, and would deliver to our home at no cost. We tried, first, two calzoni, then two Italian subs (grinders, heroes, po’ boys, hoagies, whatever they are called in your neck of the woods) and thoroughly enjoyed both. This week, Ben had an appointment with the eye doctor, and Mrs Too suggested he stop by Potomac Pizza and bring home lunch, any lunch, “surprise me”, she said.

Ben did as she asked, and the surprise turned out to be buffalo wings and onion rings. The wings were great, and the onion rings were even better. They offer only one version of buffalo wings, which turned out to be exactly right for us. Not scorching hot, but packing plenty of zip. This was the first time either of us had been in the store, and Ben was certainly impressed. There is plenty of seating in the dining room, and a good sized outdoor seating area. The kitchen is very well staffed, and food is brought out speedily, and quite hot.

Visitors staying in the Friendship Heights area of Washington/ Bethesda will find Potomac Pizza directly across a service road from the Metro bus and subway station. There is something on their menu for everyone to enjoy on premises or to take back to the hotel. In all candor, Ben must advise that parking in the area is disgraceful. Ben doesn’t have a clue what management is trying to accomplish, but the former huge parking area now looks like an old WWII war zone. That has been going on for a long time now, with no end in sight. One can leave a companion off to order take out, but to count on being able to park is quite foolish.

I dropped in for a quick snack after a Dr appt across the street. The two slices of tomato, onion and mushroom pizza were both delicious and huge. My waiter was attentive and friendly, and I had the place practically to myself. Only puzzle is why they call it Potomac when it's in Chevy Chase.

We were staying in a nearby hotel and wanted close pizza place and saw this was rather highly rated, so walked over and gave it a try. It looked rather mid-scale and a family place, but went in anyway. The service and food were very good. There were many families with elementary age children and were told the kids are given a card in school that can be used to pay for pizza. The restaurant donates funds to local schools and in return gets business. According to the waiter, it can get pretty wild sometimes.

We stopped at the restaurant for a light lunch and ordered a Greek salad, crab soup and meatballs from the appetizer menu. The salad greens were fresh and crisp. The soup was a surprise in that it was basically Minestrone with some strings of crab meat thrown in the mix. It was OK, not something I would order again as the vegetables didn't seem particularly fresh and there was hardly any crab in the soup. The broth was good. The meatballs were spongy and had little taste. Service was OK.

I was craving pizza and decided to this place since it was close to my hotel. The pizza was just ok, but the sandwich was pretty good. I will say that the order I placed online was ready by the time I arrived.
