Travelers often long for the comforts of home like home cooking. Anyone who has journeyed through America knows regions differ. Fast food drive-throughs’ quick serve macaroni, burgers, franks, subs sate hunger. Granted they are cheap, BUT they certainly are not 5 star – not even close. I prefer a decent Italian restaurant to them anyway. I go with what’s on the menu instead of corporate advertising any day.

Recently hubby and I found ourselves on the West Coast roasting and toasting a long time friend for his many years of volunteer service to God and country. Having had enough of grabbing a bite on the run but not wanting the formality of a sit-down meal, we decide on pizza. Be aware that all pizzas are not created equal. The best are native to East Coast Brooklyn; the worst somewhere off Interstate 10 in Alabama; the rest different. Chicago’s deep dish rocks Florida’s doesn’t.

No concierge to help, I rely on Restaurant.com for advice, price, sometimes comments. Nearby off the interstate, it lists J & D Pizza and Kabob at Hots Springs Plaza, 25320 Madison Avenue, Murrieta, CA 92562. Its 10 A. M. to 9 P. M. hours daily with an extra night hour Friday and Saturday are convenient.

The menu lists appetizers, salads, pasta, chicken, pizza, calzones, hot and cold subs as well as desserts. Time to order. Hubby requests one side salad.

Crouton topped California grown iceberg and romaine, crunchy cucumbers and carrots, and fresh tomatoes is prepped then served. This side is huge, a mean in itself.

Hubby’s sausage pizza soon follows. The crust is thin, crisp, perfectly baked topped with three different cheeses and just a smidgen of tomato sauce. Its sausage is tasty, mild, not spicy.

Almost simultaneously, my calzone appears. Its homemade dough stuffed with mozzarella, ricotta, and parmesan complimented by ham reminds me much of the Jersey stuffed pizza I frequently enjoy at home.

This family owned and operated restaurant is under new ownership.  It offers much – delivery, catering, moderate prices, food with made from scratch not frozen.

Hubby’s and my experience is a big win!  Glad the iPhone has a Restaurant.com app.

I used to use Restaurant.com a lot a few years back but stopped. I really need to go back to them. I’ve found some great local spots using them.

I love great pizza, and this place looks awesome. I normally don’t go for calzones, but I’d like to try the one you had.

The pizzas look good. I wish there was a branch near us, so we can try their pizza.

You don’t have to work too hard to get me to try out a pizza place, but being a part of restaurant.com offerings makes it more of a win!
