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.
