Paulo Costa Jr., Raider Times staff

Hungry? Well if you end up not wanting to cook food at your house the best place to go is Arsenal Pizza.

This little pizza place is located just off of Arsenal Street in Watertown. The food here is always made fresh and the service is over the counter (no table service or delivery). The decor is just OK. It’s a great place to get take out.

The moment you step inside a very nice lady will greet you and wait for you to order. If you don’t know what to get, you really need to try there French fries.

You might be thinking, “Why French fries?” I’ll tell you why: The moment you ask for them, you can see her put the fries in the deep fryer and you can hear the sizzle and popping in the back.

When the French fries are ready, she will call you up and give you ketchup and honey mustard. When you sit back down, don’t hesitate and just take a bite and you can taste the crunchiness on the outside and the softness inside. The amount of salt on them is just right, and you can get all of this just for $2:90.

After you finish them, there is still a whole menu to order from, so be sure to just get up and leave if you don’t want to be spending your money on the other delicious foods.
