I'll get right to it--the reason I wanted to eat at Belly's Pizza on 550 West Crossville Road in Roswell, GA was my little brother's nickname is Belly. So here we go.
There are a lot of things to choose from on the menu, from Nachotaliano and Gluten Free Pizzas to Strombolis and Subs to Pasta and Wings. Dave chose the "Buffalo Chicken Calzone, stuffed with mozzarella, crumbled feta and grilled chicken tossed in signature hot sauce and a side ranch for $11.95." I chose the "Jerk Chicken Cuban, filled with grilled jerk chicken, sliced ham, melted provolone, fresh cilantro, habañero and serrano peppers topped with lettuce, onion, tomato, sour cream and fresh lime juice for $7.50."
The sub was actually really good. It wasn't spicy like I was expecting, but still good. I've had slightly better bread, but this wasn't actually bad. The calzone could've been good, but I was literally choking on the cheese. I like cheese more than the average person, but not when it's clogging my air-and-food-ways. It was also a little bland because they were relying on so much cheese to make up for lack of seasoning. The crust was good, though. I wish there was a bigger selection of sodas. Most restaurants increase their selection of alcohol, but being a non-drinker, I'm usually disappointed in the very small selections of soda. The restaurant was clean, though. It had an open feeling bordering on empty, but we went at a weird time, so we were really the only ones there.
Verdict: I'll try it again, though I might not get another calzone. I really do want to try a pizza and the Nachotaliano.
