Two Cousins Family Restaurant has various locations around the county. If you are looking for great food to share with your friends or family, look no further! Two Cousins Bridgeport offers a plethora of food that can surely satisfy any mood you may be in. I had the pleasure of visiting the location on Lincoln Highway East, just minutes from my downtown Lancaster apartment.
I was having a rough day, and I just needed to talk to my dad. He is always full of positive insight. Selling real estate has many challenges, and my dad has been in the sales profession for 30 years, so he is a great resource when I am feeling blue. I call him up and tell him I am going to Two Cousins and ask if he would like to join me. Every Thursday my dad plays ice hockey, and I meet up with him afterwards for a slice of pizza. Keeping the Italian weekly tradition alive, Two Cousins is a great choice for our evening meal.
The restaurant gives off a cozy feel as soon as we walk through the door. We are greeted and shown to a table right away. I am in the mood for pizza, but I decide to ask the waitress what she suggests for a meal. The Baked Ziti is a customer favorite as well as the many Strombolis listed. I go with the Baked Ziti, and my dad orders the Cheesesteak Stromboli.
A fresh salad is brought out to me before my main meal. I am instantly excited about the delicious looking mozzarella cheese sprinkled all over. There is warm bread on the side and fresh vegetables throughout. My dad is explaining to me the importance of being organized and staying on top of my business as I start in on my salad. I have had Two Cousins’s salads before at different locations. They are always fresh and are exactly what I am looking for.
Our food is placed in front of us in a short amount of time. The Baked Ziti looks fabulous with the cheese and sauce oozing out onto the plate. My dad’s Stromboli is gigantic, and we both are excited to dig in. For the dampened mood I was in, the Ziti certainly helped. With bits of meat, the Ziti was a great choice for the comfort I was needing. The sauce was smooth and light, and the cheese and noodles were tangled together. Dad’s Stromboli looked great. He reports that it was better than he imagined. There was warm dipping sauce on the side. He only ate half and boxed up the rest to go. I did the same with my Ziti.
It is late on Tuesday evening, and I feel better that I spent some time with my dad. My career is a constant learning process, but my dad ensured me that it is worth it. I drop my dad off at his house, he gives me a big hug. He lets me keep his leftover Stromboli, and tells me he will see me Thursday. I return to my apartment. Jason takes my boxes and starts digging in. He is like a hungry puppy always looking for his next meal. I tell him to keep his paws off the ziti. He gobbles down the stromboli in just a couple of bites. Two Cousins was a wonderful success. The food was exactly what I needed, and my dad’s company was an extra bonus.
Hi everyone, I want to share a few things about myself. I have lived in Lancaster County my entire life.
I went to The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown and received a Bachelors in English Education and Writing. Currently, I am working as a real estate agent for Berkshire Hathaway, and of course I am doing some writing on the side! I live with my wonderful cat, Waffle in Lancaster City. Besides working and playing with my cat I also read and practice yoga.
