Fire by the Monon | Indianapolis, IN

Carnivore Flatbread

Fire by the Monon is a nice restaurant just a block west of the Monon Trail in Indianapolis’ Broad Ripple Village.  They are known for smoking and firing fresh, local ingredients.  Plus, they strive to offer a good selection of local craft beer.  Fire by the Monon has ample inside and patio dining, and their staff is extremely friendly.    They have several flatbreads on their […]

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, […]

Upland Brewing Co. | Carmel, IN

Upland Brewing Company_Margherita Pizza

Upland is a brewery based out of Bloomington, Indiana that has become popular enough to open up a couple additional locations in central Indiana.  All of their beers are very good, and I am also a fan of their burgers and tenderloins.  Therefore, I was excited to try their pizza, but I don’t think it […]

The Cheesecake Factory | Indianapolis, IN

The Cheesecake Factory_Pepperoni Pizza

The Cheesecake Factory in the Keystone Fashion Mall on Indy’s north side must be doing something right because they are always busy, and I give them credit for having quick service despite the crowds.   Part of their draw may be that they have something for everyone with one of the biggest menus I have ever seen.  […]

Copper Still Kitchen & Bar | Noblesville, IN

Copper Still Kitchen & Bar in Noblesville, IN_Cheese Pizza

Copper Still Kitchen & Bar is situated off of the square in downtown Noblesville (the location that was previously Conner Station) and is known for their vast beer selection.  It has a nice atmosphere and features live music on weekends but also offers more of a laid-back dining room if you prefer to be away from the noise.  I focused on beer sampling […]

Pollo Pizza Pasta Review | Greensboro, NC

Pollo Pizza Pasta_Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza

Pollo Pizza Pasta in Greensboro, North Carolina serves New York-style hand-tossed and pan pizza.  I ordered the sausage and pepperoni New York-style pizza pictured above and found it to be pretty average.  The toppings were okay, and the crust was a little crunchier on the edges than I would have liked.  Nothing stood out about […]

Mr. Pizza Review | Los Angeles, CA

Mr Pizza_Sausage and Pepperoni

Mr. Pizza in downtown Los Angeles is located in the Little Tokyo section of town.  As I am not a big fan of Asian food, it certainly stuck out as a solid dining option to me when I was in the area.  Mr. Pizza offers some unique pizza concoctions with non-traditional toppings such as a popular potato […]

Macaroni Grill Review | Carmel, IN

Romano's Macaroni Grill - Pepperoni Pizza

Romano’s Macaroni Grill is an Italian restaurant chain with locations throughout most of the United States, and I dined at the one in Carmel, Indiana. Like many Italian restaurants, Macaroni Grill starts you out with very good fresh bread and olive oil. We followed that up with their Mac & Cheese Bites appetizer which consisted […]

C.B. & Potts Restaurant & Brewery | Englewood, CO

CO - C.B. & Potts Restaurant & Brewery

C.B. & Potts is a fun restaurant and brewery that claims to be the tallest bar in Colorado (see picture below).  They have several locations in the Denver area, and the one I visited in Englewood had a typical restaurant area and a bar/lounge area that even featured a few games.  They offer a wide range […]

Syd’s Bar | Noblesville, IN

Syd's Bar_PizzaReview

Syd’s is an older bar on the square of downtown Noblesville. They gained my respect for serving pizza even after the kitchen is closed (for everyone, not just The Pizza Fan). The pizza isn’t too special as it is just somewhat of a typical bar pizza. However, it does have a nice amount of cheese […]
