10. Nat’s Pizza
Slice of Plain Pizza | $2.83
Small French Fries | $4.25
Review: While a crucial staple in Doylestown, Nat’s located at 138 W State St., was a little below par. The pizza was greasy, and the crust was a little soggy. Although it was heated, it was cold. French fries were hot and crispy, as a good French Fry should be. The fries were firm and were delicious dipped in Ketchup.
