Correction: This post originally stated that Esquisito is at the corner of Shenandoah Ave. and Peters Creek Road. Wrong! The correct address is in the next paragraph.
My husband checked out a little pizza and sub shop yesterday called Esquisito Pizza & Subs. It’s located in the shopping center at Cove and Peters Creek Road, near Food Lion.
Howard and his co-worker were attracted by the Wednesday special, any cold or hot sub for $4. The subs were served with chips. Howard got the Italian submarine and his buddy got the turkey and cheese sub. They reported that the subs were very good – at least 8 inches long and filled with good quality meats. Howard said the meats on his Italian were thick-cut, and it was topped with veggies and dressing.
That seemed like an outrageously affordable sub special to me. I called Esquisito and they said they run that sub special on Mondays and Wednesdays. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the special is lasagna, spaghetti, ziti or manicotti with bread and a side salad for $5.50.
The regular price for subs, which also includes ham and cheese, veggie, tuna or chicken salad, classic club, eggplant Parmigiana, meatball, cheese steak, and more, is $5 to $5.50. Pizzas run from $5 for a small cheese to $17.50 for a Sicilian with everything. They also have several other pasta dishes, calzones, stromboli, salads and burgers.
I’m interested in trying the pizza because we’re always on the lookout for a good, independently run pizza place. The one thing I can say is that the folks at Esquisito need to work on their telephone skills. When I called to ask some questions, someone hung up on me prematurely the first time and it went to an answering machine the next.
If you have had any experience with Esquisito, please tell the rest of us about it.
