Each week, Wyandotte Patch editors and readers will pick a great restaurant either in town or nearby whose cuisine is considered to reign supreme.
Here’s this week’s choice:
Greatest Dish Ever: The BBQ Chicken Pizza (12” $12.99, 16” 17.99) tops JJ’s line of delicious specialty pizzas. The pizza is made using barbecue sauce instead of traditional pizza sauce. It is then loaded up with mozzarella cheese, chicken, bacon, ham and onions.
Don't Miss: The Taco Sub ($5.00) is a creative and tasty way to enjoy some south-of-the-border flavor. A sub sandwich bun is filled with seasoned taco meat, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, black olives, tortilla chips, sour cream and taco sauce.
Overview: JJ's Pizza is an independent business that has been in Wyandotte since 1974. Aside from pizza, the eatery sells subs, seafood dinners, chicken wings and burgers. Orders can be placed in person or by phone for takeout or delivery.
The Drinks: Pepsi products are sold in 20-ounce ($1.35) or 2-liter ($2.25) bottles.
Entrees: Several different sizes of pizza are available. The smallest is a 7” personal pizza with one topping ($2.95). A large square pizza with one topping ($11.90) comes with 12 slices.

Sixteen different subs are available, including the Ham & Cheese ($5), the Pepperoni Sub ($5) and the Grilled Chicken Sub ($6).

Cheesy bread (small $4.25, large $6.25) comes with ranch dressing or pizza sauce for dipping. The Pizza Box Nachos ($4.99) comes stuffed with tortilla chips topped with nacho cheese and taco meat. Some of the fried sides available are onion rings ($2.25), breaded cheese stix ($3.95), and 20-piece chicken nuggets ($5.95).
