The eponymous Sal opened his first hand-tossed pie shop in New York in 1975. Since moving the operation to Big D in 1982, Sal's has outgrown its original location and now includes a Plano branch. Both spots offer classic New York-style pizza, such as the traditional Margherita, white and Alfredo varieties. They also offer signature selections like Sal's Special and Sal's Giant 20-inch Pizza. The normal multitude of toppings is available for customization. However, Sal's does more than pizza. Appetizers like shrimp scampi, fried calamari and bruschetta are yours for the munching, as are standard pasta options and traditional veal and chicken dishes. Oh, if you have a hankering for meatball Parmesan or Philly cheesesteak, Sal's got you covered.
