The other night my family went to eat at Guido's in Lusby. We love to go there for pizza. They make the crust by hand and even toss it in the air. We always order cheese sticks first. They are much crispier than the ones my mom makes. We like to dip them into the red sauce. It is like spaghetti sauce, only better.

Our drinks come in tall glasses and our waitress, Connie, puts lemon slices in my parents' waters.

The pizza is very, very big. We like it with pepperoni, sausage and bacon. You can get almost anything you want on it, even fish. My mom calls them anchovies. She likes them, but my dad does not like them.

My sister Emily orders a sub sandwich. It is too big for her to eat alone. The meat is hot and the cheese melts great. She likes everything but onions on it. It is called an Italian sub.

When the pizza comes, our waitress serves it to us. The pieces are really big, and there is so much topping on it. You can eat it without a fork, but it is hot.

Sometimes my mom gets a salad. She likes the seafood pasta dishes too.

Guido's is neat inside. There are small tables and for a family they will put them together. There are candles and great things to look at on the shelves. It smells good at Guido's. It is one of our favorite places to go.

Mr. John Toohey owns Guido's, and he loves kids.

You can go to Guido's, too: 11735 H.G. Trueman Road in Lusby.

Hours: Daily 11am to 10pm

Reason to Go: A family of five can dine well for a comfortable price, and with a wide menu selection, everyone seems pleased.

Joey Sikorski is a 4th grader, and Emily is a 2nd grader.

Slice the muffin in half. Put 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce on each half of the muffin. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese until the tomato sauce is covered.
