Frank and Helen's, second time.

I visited Frank and Helen's about 4 months ago as part of The Pizza Files 2009 Summer Binge and did a full review at that time, so I will keep it short.

I got the call Sunday morning that the family was going to Frank and Helen's that evening to have Broasted Chicken, and did I want to go? Of course I wanted to go, but I wasn't going to have chicken. Out of the 11 family members only 3 of us didn't get chicken (it must be good to pass on pizza).

On This visit as before I started with the Casa (house salad) with the House Creamy Garlic dressing, and as before it was quite good. I did have them add some mozzarella cheese to the salad this time.

For Pizza I ordered a Medium Extra Thin crust (St. Louis Style) with the Signature Red sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, meat balls and red onions. Just like my last visit the pizza was excellent. The ingredients were all fresh and tasted very good. The quantity of each ingredient was just right. Although the St. Louis style crust is not my favorite it did a good job of conveying the pizza from plate to mouth and added a crispness to the package.

On my June visit I noticed that they served Crown Candy Ice Cream after I had already eaten to much and had no room for dessert, this time I saved just a little space to share a scoop. My wife and I had a scoop of coffee ice cream. It was well worth saving the space. Some day I will make the trip to Crown Candy Kitchen and have a malt, but that will be another story.

So if you are craving some great pizza, Broasted chicken and ice cream you can't beat Frank and Helen's.

Frank and Helen's is located at 8111 Olive Street Rd in University City, MO. You can reach them at (314) 997-0666 or check out their web-site by clicking the title link.

Highly Recommended.
