Editor’s Note: Correction, this past weekend there was the soft opening and the grand opening is this coming Monday, November 17.
Brick Road Pizza is a wonderful addition to Wealthy Street. I love having more pizza parlors from which to pick.
There is a plethora or topping choices, only roasted garlic was not on there which makes me sad. There is an extensive vegan selection and vegan-friendly pizzas. Plus, there’s a Chicago-style pizza as well as a regular crust and a thin crust. Goodness, the selections, the combinations, the ingredients! Everything was fresh and the staff was friendly.
However, since it was the opening night, the staff seemed a little ill-prepared to run this pizza parlor but I imagine in time service will continue to improve. The owners and staff have a lot of heart and blood and sweat put into this restaurant, I could tell. The decor was an eclectic mix of styles and I’m not 100% sure what I think about the overall look. I will have to go in again and I will be there soon because of the pizza.
When you’re there, if you’re a big eater like me, order the 12″. I had a 7″ build-your-own pizza with chicken, red onions, and mild yellow peppers. I ate two slices there to save room for dessert which was disappointing and then went home to eat the last two within 10 minutes of being home.
The one major problem, and it’s major to me because I LOVE dessert and all things sugary, was the chocolate chip cookie was WAY WAY WAY too small to even share. I did offer some to my dining companion but only because I was being polite. I was relieved when he said no, it was TOO SMALL and really yummy! The chocolate chip cookie was warm and gooey and not overly sweet or lacking chocolate. It did not fill the pan. The waitress said the pan was hot and if the pan was hot, then obviously it was cooked in said pan. If they cooked it in that pan, then they should’ve cooked it to fit. I was even more disappointed because there was a picture on the menu that showed the dessert I ordered. (By the way, Gordon Ramsay says that he’ll walk out of a restaurant if he sees a menu with pictures. I did comment on that to my dining companion but I thought it would make the pizza more enticing. It made the dessert enticing but like I said, WAY TOO SMALL!)
So go to Brick Road Pizza and support your local businesses, even the landlords of the building are nice and supportive, but if you are going to order dessert, order two for yourself. Hours are Mon-Thurs 11-11 Fri-Sat 11-12 Sunday 11-9
