Review of Yonah Pizza & Subs Restaurant
Yonah Pizza & Subs
If you're in Cleveland, Georgia and looking for a quiet, charming and idyllic place to stop and eat dinner with your family or friends, look no further than Yonah Pizza & Subs. I had the distinct pleasure of stopping by there about a week ago and loved the food, the service and the atmosphere of the quaint little restaurant.
As to how I came to Yonah Pizza & Subs, I was in Helen visiting my grandparents and contemplating on where to eat dinner as none of us felt up to cooking. My grandmother suggested this restaurant, which I had never heard of, for good reason. Yonah Pizza & Subs is a new restaurant that just opened about two months ago. They are located on Helen Highway and directly across from the Yonah Mountain campground. As you might have already guessed, the restaurant is named for Yonah Mountain, which is a stone's throw away.
If one is new to the area and is apprehensive about finding the restaurant, there's no reason to get lost as Yonah Pizza & Subs is literally located right on Helen Highway. Despite being located on a highway, the restaurant is never cramped and annoyingly crowded. You never have to wait for tables or struggle to find parking. Upon entering the restaurant, you are immediately greeted by a friendly, vivacious server and shown to your table.
My personal experience was excellent due to our server's efficiency and warmth. After taking our orders and getting our drinks, she repeatedly came by our table to check on us and I never had to ask her for a refill of my drink. Indeed, I had barely even drank half of the cup before she refilled it to the brim once more.
When our food came, I was instantly ravenous due to the fantastic aromas wafting from our pizzas. I myself had ordered a 12 inch cheese pizza and my grandparents had ordered the 14 inch Supreme pizza. As you will see in the photos below, the pizzas are made with a thin crust and despite being a usual fan of the thick crust at national pizza chains, I was very happy with the thin crust.
I was not able to finish my pizza so naturally, I chose a to-go box. I wasn't about to give up the rest of this delicious pizza, after all.
Now as you can guess from the name, Yonah Pizza & Subs doesn't serve just pizza. In fact, they make sub sandwiches as well and judging from how well the pizza was made, I have no doubt that their subs are fantastic as well.
As for the pricing of the pizza, I found it to be a good deal, certainly cheaper than what I would be paying at national pizza or sub chains. If you're curious to know the pricing, simply take a look at the photos below of the menu.
Overall, I loved Yonah Pizza & Subs and when I am back in the Helen/Cleveland area again, I shall be making another visit to the charming restaurant. Honestly, going to eat at Yonah Pizza & Subs feels like going to eat at a good friend's place. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and the rustic, pastoral atmosphere immediately puts one at ease. It's impossible not to relax in their restaurant and enjoy their delectable pizza and subs. In fact, I challenge you to visit Yonah Pizza & Subs and see how you like the place. I promise, you won't be disappointed.
