The Spot Review [2]

The last time around, The Spot didn't blow me away, but it wasn't half bad. So in an attempt to see what their pizza and wings were like, the GF and I decided to check them out again. I'm glad we did.

Large Special Pizza [$15.99]
Pepperoni, sausage, ground beef, onions, mushrooms, green peppers

First thing's first. For us, it's not about the pizza at The Spot. It was a bit soggy, but the dough was decently seasoned and the veggies seemed fresh.

Overall, it was alright, but there are certainly better pizzas out there like Lazos Pizza & Grill.

Special Chicken Sandwich [$7.99]
Lettuce, tomato, provolone, bacon, Russian dressing

The GF was in the mood for a chicken sandwich so was happy with this effort. The chicken was crisply fried, juicy, and decently seasoned. The Spot seemed to have forgotten the provolone, but the Russian dressing helped to amp up the sandwich a bit. And waffle fries? Nothing wrong with those!

Boneless Buffalo Wings [$13.29]
20 pieces; half mild buffalo, half BBQ

The real star for us though? The boneless wings. Now let me tell you - I'm personally a bone-in man myself. But for the GF's sake, I deal with boneless. And with The Spot's iteration, I have no qualms with that at all. These were incredibly moist, perfectly crispy and both sauces were on point. The buffalo was slightly spicy and the BBQ was not overly sweet and definitely had nice smoke to it. 

So if you're in the mood for wings or have a somewhat finicky partner, definitely check out the wings here. There's easily some of the best boneless wings in Center City.
