If your looking for something unique, delicious and not too expensive, I strongly recommend checking out D-lux's Meat pizzas. They have a full blown pizza oven that creates an authentic pizza texture which is crispy yet soft, and have a number of options to put on. Pulled Brisket, Rib Eye, Sausage, Korean chicken and pesto chicken just to name a few.

Decided to try it recently, went with the brisket and was really impressed. Went back and tried the pesto chicken which was equally as good.
Haven't tried the pizza - but we recently had the pulled meat calzone and it was really good too.

@aygart @Euclid

Instructions please. I couldn't grill a half decent steak if my life was in limbo. Always blamed it on Lakewood kedusha.
Let it cook two minutes less thank you think, and let rest partially covered for 6 minutes more than you think

Was just in Bun tonight - great food. But what stood out was the exceptionally fast and excellent service (on a Thursday night!) - especially compared to many of the other establishments in town which have had a steep decline in quality of service over the past year.
