Last summer I was in Michigan for work and Boston’s was my go to place as it was right next to the hotel I was staying in. Their menu had very good selection so that I could try something different every evening. I loved their pastas and salads but never tried the pizza. Recently we came to know that there is a Boston’s restaurant in Coon Rapids.
We went to Boston’s this afternoon and tried one of their heart-shaped pizzas. There were many to choose from but we went for Sicilian and The Flying Buffalo and both the pizzas didn’t disappoint.
Sicilian as expected came with Spicy Italian sausage, smoked ham and pepperoni topped with thinly sliced red onions, green peppers, mozzarella cheese sprinkled with fresh basil. Basil makes everything taste good and it tastes even better when it is served with mozzarella and sausages. This was no exception.
The Flying Buffalo on the other hand was very different from Sicilian. It’s a cheese based pizza or in other words, they don’t use the regular pizza sauce made out of tomatoes but instead they use creamy cheese sauce. This was further topped with buffalo sauce, spicy chicken, mozzarella and parmesan bread crumbs and drizzled with hot sauce. Overall this pizza has a kick! So if you can’t handle spicy, this might not be for you. It is definitely different from regular pizzas.
If we had to pick a favorite out of the two, it would definitely be Sicilian. Every bite was juicy and bursting with flavors. I think it had a lot to do with the basil 😉 Just saying I might be biased.
Overall we loved our food at Boston’s. We were seated immediately. Our service was prompt. We didn’t have to wait for our host. Our server, Kelly was always checking on us. Another interesting thing about this location is on Sundays, they have a balloon artist on location. So if you have kids this could be something fun for them or if you are like me, it can be something interesting for you too. I asked for a teddy bear and the artist made one for me in seconds!
So this Valentine’s day or the days leading to Valentine’s day if you feel like having pizza, go to Boston’s. You will not only be fulfilling your appetite but will also be helping those in need indirectly.
***Shout out to our server Kelly and her amazing personality! You were awesome 🙂
