It was good to be back here with a dear young fellow. The service was fast. The food was great. The owner was kind. I love this pizza and I love the quaint, local feel.

I liked the pizza. It had a thin crust. The one downside is that credit cards are not accepted. There seemed to be a lot of locals here.

I live 6 hours away. Only make it down to Front Royal about twice a year to see family. We are only there for 2 nights. And this is a dinner one of those nights every time. Wonderful crust, good sauce, and fresh toppings combined with very friendly employees. If in Front Royal this place is a must. Remember to take cash as they do not take credit cards (they do have an ATM inside). And better for an early or late dinner as it does get extremely busy during dinner hours.

While heading north on the "scenic route" from Charlottesville. we enjoyed the countryside and views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Early evening we found ourselves in Front Royal. After passing a couple of Mexican restaurants and fast-food places we chose to eat at a casual locally run establishment before hitting the road.

The Melting Pot is located on the outskirts of town (near the old town shops and antique stores). It is a well-established pizza place where local couples, families and teens enjoy a typical (albeit limited) menu in a spacious retro/small-town atmosphere. Seating options include booths, tables and bar area, and an eclectic mix of local memorabilia and hand written signs for the customers decorate the walls*.

Service is ok, prices are decent, food is average. We ordered salad (served in pre-refrigerated bowls) and chose our own ingredients for a pizza (good crunchy thin crust cut in small squares, fresh cut onions and crumbled sausage, tons of canned sliced olives). The dining experience did little for us by way of taste (the sauce could definitely use some spicing up!), but glad we checked out a local place before heading on our way.

*please note: NO credit or debit cards accepted, ONLY cash or personal checks may be used to pay your bill (ATM machine conveniently located by front door:-)

Holy cow!!! Couldn't believe how good the pizza was. My wife and I arrived on Friday night, parking lot was full but service was great and the food came quicker than what I though. The best part was you could actually taste the toppings on the pizza! They didn't skimp when it came to the toppings. I ordered a dinner sized meat lovers and you could actually taste the meat!!! Wonderful!!! If ever in the Front Royal area and you like pizza this is a must place to eat!!! Five stars all the way.
