Santoro's Brick Oven Pizzeria, our Best French Fries--Boardwalk winner in 2004, is opening another location. It's at Broadway and Mineral, in the Safeway shopping center -- and about ten miles from Santoro's current spot at 9500 Heritage Hills Circle in Littleton.
I grew up near the original Santoro's, and know that you can't have too many places like it (local, and good) in this part of the 'burbs. Look for the new Santoro's to open around May 1 -- but don't be surprised if it misses the mark by a few days. Manager Rodney Weiss says they're still getting everything in order for the opening.
It can't open soon enough for me.
