DiCarlo's pizza is very good. Started in my hometown of Wheeling, WV in 1949 by Gaudo Dicarlo. If it's not in Wheeling, it's a knockoff. His kids and him had a falling out and they branched out on their own. They tried to replicate the recipe and have come close but not quite. The Original DiCarlos Famous Pizza is the one. The best one is in Elm Grove, WV. He actually sued his kids to use a different name, hence Mario DiCarlos. While good, it cannot touch the original and be worth the trip to see a Nailers game (preferably on dollar beer night) and pick some up. Just call ahead first and do yourself a favor and get a bag of cheese to go with it.

course 1 - scrapple with fried egg and maple apple bourbon butter
course 2 - mini duck ham and cheese sammies on toasted brioche with pickle relish and cranberry mustard
course 3 - beef and pork meatloaf with corn mashed potatoes topped with bacon jam, chanterelle mushrooms and gravy
course 4 - warm brownie with whipped cream and berries
everything was excellent. the meatloaf with the sides was tops. as per usual with meat and potatoes the service is average to below average (server spilled water on me when pouring and just said oops that happens alot with these bottles) and the space is overcrowded but the food is worth it. also had the old fashioned which was overpriced for the volume received but very delicious.
also worth noting, i am staying away from gluten forever. yesterday was rough
