It may seem like fast food isn't really that fast anymore. 

But there's hope! Thanks to Gallo Coal Fire Kitchen. 

The Italian restaurant has been open for about a year in Lewiston, and customers are impressed. 

Restaurant owner Michael Hibbard (yes, kin to the Hibbard's Custard dynasty!) says it's because of their unique coal fire hearth--they have the only one in all of Western New York. 

He says, "This furnace burns at around 1,000 to 1,200 degrees, which produces a real super thin, crispy crust on the pizza--a lot different from wood fire."

With Western New York being a hotbed for culinary innovation, Gallo bakes up mouth-watering masterpieces, including a Buffalo chicken pizza. 

The restaurant caters to all taste buds--from meat-lovers to vegetarians. Gluten-free pasta is also an option. 

Gallo opens at 4 p.m. during the week and opens at 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. 

In the mood for fresh fast food, put Gallo Coal Fire Kitchen to the test!
