2019 Travel Recap

Mid Atlantic: Benny's Pizza

Pizza Rating: 4.5/5 Benny’s Pizza (Benny Sorrentinos + Benny Delucas) will always feel like my hometown pizza. Benny’s opened up in my college town, and there’s another location where I live now. The 28″ pizzas are memorable- but one of the $5 slices will fill you up! One thing I love about Benny’s is that…
