Long known in the Philadelphia area as a bastion of late night eating, Lorenzo and Sons or Lorenzo's as it is colloquially known, offers a cheap slice of cheese, and some entertaining people watching on any given Friday night.


They are open late, serve only cheese pizza, and always have a line. I hadn't been there in quite some time, so I felt it was time to revisit. The pizza was...delicious.



Keeping in mind this is not the kind of pizza that you eat with a glass of red, but rather the kind of fuel that beer addled revelers fold and eat standing up along the corridors of South street. The simplicity is what makes it. The cheese is rich, stringy and savory, the sauce has a nice seasoning, and the crust has the perfect amount of "chew" a quality often missed by lesser purveyors of this American staple. It's tough to beat two slices to go to help make the walk home fly by.
