GUIDA’S PIZZERIA – Rochester NY (Irondequoit)

Guida’s Pizzeria is a family run eatery since 1994, with 5 locations throughout the Rochester area.

The small, comfortable 20-seat pizzeria does a huge business. Your best option is an order to-go; dining in, expect a wait. Those craving some of the best pizza and specialty subs in the area know the line extends around to the parking lot on weekend evenings. It is worth it!

After several hours of shopping, my mom, sister & I stopped for a late lunch & ordered their infamous subs. I had the Schwartzkoff – piled high with ham, breaded & deep fried chicken breast, swiss & mozzarella cheese, shredded lettuce, onion, mayo, and topped with their homemade sweet ‘n sour sauce. All this goodness is served on a toasted homemade in-house 12” sub roll embedded with sesame seeds on both sides. Incredible . . . more than enough to share! The subs are served with a side of warm potato chips (again homemade).

As I was reading the menu, I found a list of homemade sauces for their wings and subs. I ordered a side of the chili lime sauce. Wow – this excellent pureed tomato based sauce bursting with chilies, limejuice and bits of onion was the perfect dipping sauce for the potato chips. Yumm!

The very friendly staff is full of suggestions and eager to assist. As it states in Guida’s menu, “These subs are for serious eaters!” I agree.

Mmm, Mmm, Mmm…
