Connie’s Pizza | Chicago, IL

Sausage Pizza

Upon arriving for a stay at the Thompson Chicago on the corner of Bellevue and Rush, I was happy to hear the concierge tell us that we had three solid nearby pizza options in Lou Malnati’s, Pizano’s, and Connie’s.  I already knew that I would greatly enjoy Lou Malnati’s and Pizano’s based on previous experiences.  However, we were already […]

Tap House Grill | Seattle, WA

Margherita Flatbread

Tap House Grill has locations in Seattle and Bellevue, and I dined at the one in downtown Seattle.  I was incredibly impressed with their beer selection – 160 beers on tap – and would give them a 10/10 for that.  However, I was not as impressed with their flatbread pizza which was fairly average.  Thankfully, […]

Pizzeria Napoletana (within Caffe Vita) | Seattle, WA

Pizza Oven

Pizzeria Napoletana is located within Caffe Vita in the Pioneer Square area of downtown Seattle.  One might not expect a pizza place in the corner of a café to be very good, but Pizzeria Napoletana disproves that.  While they only serve wood-fired pizzas from 11 am to 5 pm, it is definitely worth trying one if you can make […]

Village Tavern | Winston-Salem, NC

Margherita Flatbread

Village Tavern is a popular spot in Winston-Salem, and they have other locations across a few states and even the Philippines as well.  Part of the popularity must come from the incredibly wide range of options on their menu.  I believe they are most known for their burgers and steaks, but there is probably something wrong […]

Eno Pizzeria & Wine Bar | Coronado, CA

Ocean View from Hotel Del Coronado

Although it certainly factors into the price of their pizzas, it is hard to beat the location of Eno Pizzeria & Wine Bar within the famous Hotel Del Coronado of Coronado Island in San Diego County.  The Hotel Del Coronado, or “The Del” as it is often called, is a very luxious resort that has been […]

Pizza Port | Carlsbad, CA

Meet Extreme Meat

Pizza Port is a really cool pizzeria and brewery with multiple locations in the San Diego area.  It actually started as a pizza place and craft-brewed beers were added a little later, after one of the owners had success when dabbling in home brewing.  Don’t let that fool you into thinking their beers are just […]

The Pike Brewing Company | Seattle, WA

Mash Tun

The Pike Brewing Company is located in the famous Pike Place Market – yes, the same place where they throw fish – of downtown Seattle.  Both their pub and brewery are in the same location, and the brewery is actually mostly below the pub.  Parts of the brew kettle and mash tun are exposed in a neat way […]

M. Mogger’s Restaurant & Pub | Terre Haute, IN

Mogger Meat-ta Pizza

M. Mogger’s Restaurant & Pub is in the very cool E. Bleemel Building, which previously housed M. Mogger’s Brewery in the mid-1800s.  The atmosphere within M. Mogger’s Restaurant & Pub retains a lot of that older charm, complete with some antique brewing equipment.  Staying true to the building’s brewing roots, they also boast an excellent […]

Pizzeria Toro | Durham, NC

Pizzeria Toro_San Marzano Tomatoes, Buffalo Mozzarella, Prosciutto

Pizzeria Toro serves fine wood-fired pizza in the heart of downtown Durham, making it a great place to eat before seeing a show at The Carolina Theatre or DPAC, or even before catching a legendary Durham Bulls baseball game. I thought the pizza at Pizzeria Toro was fantastic, and the only problem is that I’m […]

Frozen Pizza Reviews

Tombstone Pepperoni

I am usually a standard Tombstone frozen pizza type of guy as I feel like it is a pretty happy medium between the really cheap and tasteless frozen pizzas and the expensive ones that still aren’t as good as a fresh-baked pie.  I typically add a little bit of shredded cheese to my frozen pizzas and […]
