Fratelli’s Pizza Draws a Crowd in West Allis
Lincoln Avenue is not the busiest street in West Allis, so why are there so many cars at the intersection of 62nd Street? Because this site is home to Fratelli’s (6202 W. Lincoln Ave.). Seating is limited to three tables in the small interior and a few outdoor spots with umbrellas. But most of the customers are here for carryout. While pizza is the specialty, there are subs and Italian deli sandwiches as well. Many customers also go for the Chicago-style hot dogs. My sandwich of choice is the Italian beef. Good Italian beef is not easy to find in Milwaukee, but they’ve got it at Fratelli’s. Ask for sautéed green peppers and some marinated hot peppers to complement the thin, succulent slices of beef. This is a family-run establishment with prices that aim to please. For more information, visit fratellispizzacafe.com or call (414) 541-0500.
