“Pizza for Boy Scouts...in camp!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

I had heard a lot about this resturant but just never had the chance to stop in and try them. While attending summer camp with my Boy Scout troop this past week, my Scouts had earned themselves a treat. I opened my TripAdvisor app to have Jerlando's reviews catch my eye. First off, it was a large order of 2 sheet pizzas (24 slices in a sheet) They told us it would be ready before we could even make the drive from camp to the resturant. That is fast. I told the nice lady where we were and they informed us they would have the pizza made by 6 p.m. so it would be hot and fresh by the time we made the drive from camp to Jerlando's. The pizza was fresh out of the ovens just as we arrived at 6 p.m. to pick it up. It was some of the best pizza I have ever had. The cheese blend was perfect. The sauce was evenly spread, well seasoned and not too sweet nor acidic. The crust was a perfect balance between thin and thick, just right for some very hungry scouts. The pepperoni was a perfect representation of added Italian pizazz. What made this place great for me was the fact that they were eager to accommodate our order of 2 sheet pizzas and a drive of 25 minutes, to ensure that or pizza would be hot and fresh for our Boy Scout troop. That is great service. The overall cost was good. It was $18 for a 24 slice sheet pizza.(Cheese only) Additional toppings are $3 each, for this size. The size of each cut, square slice, were a bit bigger than most other sheet pizza slices I have experienced. I really want to return to take my wife out to dinner, because the menu looks great and the aroma of this resturant is alluring.

“service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

during our stay in New York state we have experienced a variety of quality of service in restaurants, on average a little disappointing with tip expectation far exceeding the quality on offer. our waiter Justin was attentive and the food was quick and good - though watch out for massive portions ! restored our faith in quality of service !

Great food! If you're a chicken parm fan like me, get it! Service was great as was the atmosphere. Wait was not bad at all for a Saturday night. We would definitely go back.

“Great Family Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We visited on our way through the area and were immediately impressed by the friendly staff and the ability to be seated right away.

The pizza was very good, especially good was the crust. We shared two large pizzas between the five if us which was plenty. The cheese was very good and the sauce had a mild flavor. The Bruschetta specialty was exceptional.

Lunch for a family of 5 ran us ~$50 plus tip including the two pizzas and bottled waters.
