Editorial Review of Pinocchio's Pizza & Wings

Expect somebody's nose to grow a couple of inches, because the people at Pinocchio's lied, or, at the very least, are really modest. The painting on their windows of their jumbo slice of pizza looks remarkably skinny, when in reality, that slice is absolutely gargantuan, a thin but exceedingly wide chunk of a pie, at least 1/2 of a small-sized pizza. It's seriously way bigger than jumbo.

The "big" theme sets the tone for Pinocchio's: big slices, big chicken wings, big smiles, big mustaches. Thankfully, this doesn't translate into proportionally large prices: That oversized piece of pie only costs $5 with a can of pop, pretty decent for something that could conceivably last for two meals. The offerings for the full 12- and 16-inch pizzas are more artistically intriguing, including the Greek pizza, topped with feta cheese, olive oil, basil and green olives. And then there's the wings, a peppery bucketload of chicken that comes in a three-pound serving for just $10.

The interior seems a little barren at first, but the staff is adept at making the room feel inviting with good spirits and some friendly banter. There's also an inexplicable painting of a knight slaying a dragon that doesn't really fit with the rest of the room (or with the stereo blasting Johnny Cash), but if you can conquer this beast of a pizza, maybe you deserve to be knighted. Or to become a real boy.

Average cost: <$10
