TODAY WE VISITED MAXIE'S PIZZA FAMILY RESTAURANT LOCATED AT 320 SOUTH KEYSER AVE OLD FORGE, PA 18518, JUST ABOUT WHERE OLD FORGE MEETS TAYLOR NEAR THE PA TURNPIKE INTERCHANGE. MAXIE'S HAS BEEN OPEN ABOUT 20 YEARS, it is run by Willie and Maxie and their parents. Maxie's has plenty of free off street parking on the side of their restaurant which looks alot like someones house very inviting. You enter the dining room thru the side door or enter the bar thru the front door. Either way you are greeted by a clean well lit restaurant. Last night the bar was half filled with couples and friends hanging out and enjoying a few beverages and food. We choose the dining room which has about ten booths and some free standing tables which seats about sixty people.
WE ORDERED BOTH RED AND WHITE PIZZA. THE RED PIZZA WAS TASTY, THIN CRUST WITH GOLDEN BROWN BOTTOM, A RED SAUCE WITH A HINT OF PEPPER AND LOTS OF MELTED CHEESE ON TOP(NEXT TIME I HAVE TO FIND OUT WHAT KIND CHEESES ARE USED ON THEIR PIZZA.) JUST THE RIGHT TEXTURE CRISPY BOTTOM AND CHEWY TOP AND NOT TO GREASY.
THE WHITE PIZZA WAS DOUBLE CRUSTED STUFFED WITH CHEESE THAT JUST KEPT ROLLING OUT OF THE PIZZA AND ALMOST COVERED THE TRAY IT WAS SERVED ON. A MEMORABLE QUOTE FROM THE TABLE WAS "THIS PIZZA LOOKS GREAT AND I'M SURE A HEART ATTACK IS NOT FAR OFF" THE TOP OF THE PIZZA HAD A LIGHT COAT OF OLIVE OIL AND LOTS OF ITALIAN SPICES BAKED TO A GOLDEN BROWN COLOR.
Maxie's also has a great selection of reasonably priced dinners, wings and deserts.
I personally had two red cuts and two white cuts and i was stuffed. I think the hardest part of this Pizza Challenge is going to be getting enough will power to stop eating when i'm full and to get in the excerise to be able to lose the weight for the challenge.
Challenge Ranking 4 cuts. Scale reading no change 184
