Pesos Pizza & Southwest Grill in downtown Tunkhannock is a pizza place with a bit of a twist. When they’re not tossing dough, they whip up Mexican-inspired cuisine. They even have a build-your-own bar where you can make a taco or burrito with all your favorite toppings.
If you miss the old Newsies Pizza, you’re in luck. The same owners run Pesos, and they still make their signature pies. The pizza night possibilities are endless with their traditional round pizza, specialty pies, Sicilian pizza, and Old Forge trays.
Pesos has gluten-free pizza, tacos, and burritos. They also offer convenient delivery and online ordering.
You have to try the creative specialty pizzas like the vegetarian spinach and garlic pizza or the BBQ chicken pizza. If you can’t decide between the pizza and Mexican food, try the “Taco Crazy” pizza. It includes seasoned beef, tomatoes, onions, peppers, tortilla chips, and cheese.
Try the Southwestern specialties, like the shrimp tacos with chipotle aioli. Their Healthy Burrito (yes, it’s possible!) is stuffed with chicken, rice, beans, cheese, pico de gallo, veggies, cilantro, and guac.
