Latest Review: 4/14/14
Jeff Eats absolutely positively loves the Penguin Pretzel Factory!
Real simple concept, soft pretzels topped- or stuffed with all kinds of fillings.
Something like 3 months ago, the joint introduced an 8-inch pretzel pizza that is off-the chart!. Picture a “round” pizza with a soft pretzel crust (salted, everything, plain or cheese stuffed), topped with mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese and marinara sauce…and you’ll be on the right page! Like I said, off-the chart! By the way, for $.25 per-you can add all kinds of toppings to the pizza!
Just between you and me, the spinach/feta cheese stuffed pretzel ($5.95) and the pepperoni/mozzarella stuffed pretzel ($5.95) ain’t no slouches either.
This joint is an absolute must try…its stuff kills!

Real simple concept…fresh-hot-hand rolled- soft pretzels with all kinds of toppings, fresh-hot-hand rolled-soft pretzels stuffed with all kinds of fillings.
Order at the counter…2 tables inside, 2 tables outside.
Jeff Eats loved the stuffed bacon/cheddar and the stuffed bbq pulled pork pretzels. By the way these stuffed pretzels ain’t your Auntie Anne’s pretzels–the dough alone weighs in around 1/2 lb.
Look! This stuffed/topping-pretzel “thing” is a variation on a theme–Jeff Eats has seen it done with knishes, burgers, calzones, pies, yogurt, turkeys. That said, Penguin’s stuffings worked for me. Not really sure that a retail-store concept based on toppings and fillings is sustainable–but as I said a few seconds ago, Jeff Eats loved the product.

Penguin Pretzel Factory is open Monday-Friday 11:30m-7pm, Saturday 11:30am-6pm, closed Sunday.
One final thought…
Over the years, Jeff Eats has bought SUPERPRETZEL (www.superpretzel.com)-a frozen baked soft pretzel (6 to a package) at Publix. I have baked, microwaved or toasted SUPERPRETZEL and topped with mustard, marinara sauce, melted cheddar, pastrami, corned beef–and have always enjoyed my handy-work. So, if you don’t live near Penguin Pretzel Factory- you can make amateur versions of its menu-pretzels until you can try the real McCoy-s.
