It wasn’t until a few days ago when I was catching up on shows I had DVR’d that I saw the episode of Joe Squared on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives that I remembered how good the pizza is there. It’s square, thin crust and they have tons of crazy toppings which is always fun. With all the different menu options, it’s a great reason to keep coming back for more.
The interior is set up like a regular pizza joint/bar with a nice beer selection and plenty of tables for you to enjoy your food. They have a nice selection of local beers on tap so my friend and I each ordered a drink because few things pair better with pizza than a nice cold beer.
We ordered a Caesar Salad to share and it was good, but nothing special. It’s rare that a Caesar Salad has anything special to it but it’s nice to have some veggies with the meal.
We also shared the Garlic Bread because I really loved that last time I was here. It’s a large piece of french bread topped with a garlic spread and then melted cheese. It is a pretty big portion which was nice because it was so amazing. It came served with marinara sauce for dipping. I personally don’t dip my garlic bread into sauce because then it turns into a deconstructed pizza.
My friend and I could not decide on the same pizza for the life of us so we each decided to order our own pie and then have leftovers for lunch the next day. This was a brilliant plan. My friend ordered the traditional Cheese Pizza which she loved, to make it a little less boring she topped it with pineapples. The pizza came out piping hot and she loved every bite of it.
I decided to try one of Joe Squared Signature Pizzas. I ordered the Flag Pizza. It was a pizza split into thirds with three different kinds of pizza. The first third was crushed tomato with mozzarella, provolone, romano, parmigiano and asiago; the second, roasted garlic cream with mozzarella, cheddar and ricotta; and finally pesto sauce with fresh mozzarella. My favorite was probably the pesto section but I loved the whole thing. The idea of three different pizza’s in one is great and this is definitely something I would order again.
Some of their other menu options also looked really good like their wings and risottos. I will definitely be back to try more things.
