Salvatore’s Pizza: good eats without breaking the bank

Little known gem on Main Street in Macungie, Salvatore’s Pizza has been gaining attention in the eyes of Emmaus students. Step into the quaint atmosphere of this delightful pizzeria, open seven days a week since 1974, and you will be greeted with a taste of Italy.

Sal’s is a family-owned and operated pizza joint that is sure to please. The feeling you get at Salvatore’s is unlike any other Macungie restaurant has to offer. When sitting in the dining area you can enjoy a variety of savory dishes. With dishes from stromboli to burgers, anything you’re feeling hungry for, you’ll most likely find it at Sal’s. Most famous for their pizza, which is a thin crispy crust topped with delicious melty cheese served hot and delectable.

Customers such as senior Hailey Bonenberger come for deals such as Sal’s $3.50 lunch special for two slices of pizza and a fountain drink, perfect for cheap date nights.

“I love taking my friends or my boyfriend to Sal’s because it’s a really nice place to have a night out,” says Bonenberger. “It’s a chill and inviting place.”

You can call in and order takeout, or get high speed delivery.

Sophomore Brianna Tedaldi started to go to Salvatore’s after a recommendation from friends.

“I go to Sal’s because I love Italian food, I get their pizza a couple times a month, not as often as I want to,” says Tedaldi. “The first time I went there was a couple months ago with my friends, it was amazing. I would definitely recommend it because it’s delicious and you get a lot of food for your money.”

The service at Salvatore’s is very accommodating and staff is very personal with it’s customers. Through bringing orders out to tables at an extraordinary speed and personally not once have I ever witnessed a messed up order, Sal’s is the place to go if you’re in a pitch with either time or money.

“Yeah since I’m a teen, I’m always broke,” says Bonenberger. “But Sal’s is really cheap and always satisfies.”

The one downfall of Salvatore’s could be it’s parking situation, with only a small parking lot in the back and on the side which is hard to navigate for a newcomer. Not only amateurs have a hard time parking, Bonenberger, who drives a van, must park in the neighboring parking lot of the Bear Swamp dinner.

“Even if the food is worth it, is the parking?,” said Bonenberger. “My van never fits and honestly the traffic on the street makes it hard to fit into any spots easily.”

At the end of the day if you’re looking for a good meal that won’t make your wallet lose weight, Salvatore’s is sure to please.
