This is a take out hoagie & pizza place. You just walk in to a small counter and pick up your order. The griddle is right there. You can watch them make the steak & cheese hoagies. We'd heard good things, so decided to order a steak & cheese hoagie and a pizza. The first time I tried to order didn't work out because they only make pizza on certain days, during certain hours. I guess it's only when the person who makes the dough is working. This is hearty food. The steak and cheese had no shortage of cheese or grease. The bun was actually wet (they give you lots of napkins!). The pizza is square with a thick crust, sweet sauce and loads of american cheese. It's by no means health food, but tasted good.

When you are visiting the kids at Marywood University and just want to sit down at a table that isn't cooking fake food full of preservatives. Eating here was like being in a small town version of CHEERS: everyone knows one another, meeting here for a simple breakfast that isn't poured out of a box or flash frozen. No frills, basic eggs, coffee and plain sara lee white bread. Service is quick by waitress who feels like family; sitting at tables that were a little wobbly just like visiting your great aunt's house unannounced. Simple, straight forward food which fills you up.
Although the local talk is that Laura's has some of the best pizza in Northeast Pennsylvania, I chose to get a Texas cheese steak and some fried mac and cheese bites, to go. And they were pretty good.The Texas cheese steak is a sandwich consisting of Texas wiener sauce, a turmeric/mustard base chili sauce that's usually a hot dog topping, endemic to the Northeast Pennsylvania area, shredded steak and American cheese, inside a hero roll. While the cheese is a bit heavy, overall, it's a sandwich that holds up pretty well in taste and neatness, i.e. you can eat it without worrying about everything dripping all over the place. Their fried Mac and Cheese bites, well, they taste like fried mac and cheese. If they took the excess cheese they put in their cheese steak into the bites, they'd have a hit.Laura's itself is the standard Northeast Pennsylvania decor: grungy walls, aged seating and an all around back-in-time look. With all this probably comes the last of the cigarette vending machines, that dispense real packs of smokes, and a vintage, early '80s video game. The staff and patronage are nice, and the kitchen seems to work their butts off making pizza pie after pizza pie for all of the call-ins. The next time I hit the place, pizza and Texas wieners it shall be.
Great service, and great pizza and wings!! EAT THERE! Wasn't too sure about it at first, but ended up eating there for four days straight!

Itâs only pizza and beer there, but a lot of different flavors. The crust is crispy and doughy; itâs like yin yang but itâs very good. When we first occasion to eat there, we asked the young waitress about her favorite flavor and she said, âsweet and hotâ. We ordered the regular style and then the sweet and hot. Weâre hooked with the sweet and hot. Everybody in our family loves this pizza.

Jon Pierre's Cuisine ranges from appetizers to salads, sandwiches, Pizza, homemade pastas, steaks and homemade desserts.
I had the pleasure of trying their gnocchi with pesto cream sauce recently. The gnocchi were light, tender and VERY tasty. The pesto was fantastic. It wasn't too oily, it stuck to the gnocchi and was seasoned to perfection. Another local restaurant had been my favorite place for gnocchi, but they have been knocked off their throne by Jon Pierre's.

We had to drive 2 hours to pick up an item at Loweâs. So we stopped here for dinner. All I can say is âWowâ. Their pizza is just fantastic. We actually ordered dinner and added a take out for tomorrow

My family and I were heading through Scranton and were looking for Italian. We came across this restaurant and the food was amazing, the portions were large. The garlicky Zeppole (garlic dough) was to die for. We will definitely eat at this place again while traveling.Jason F.. thank you so much for stopping by on your way through Scranton. The Trip Advisor community has always been very kind to us, which encourages folks like you to stop by. I am happy you enjoyed the food. The garlic zeppole is by far the number 1 appetizer on the menu, I'm glad you liked it. I look forward to seeing you again soon. Darryl
