When Round Table Pizza closed after 20 years of operation, the community was saddened. This was the place where families would eat together on a Friday night, the place where youth sports teams would celebrate after a victory or angrily eat chicken wings after a defeat. Luckily, a new family of owners reopened the eatery to keep Round Table's legacy alive. They even rehired the same staff. In fact, the only thing that changed was the name. Now called Road House Pizza, the restaurant serves a familiar menu of pies, comforting diners with old favorites such as barbecue chicken, Hawaiian, and veggie supreme.
At Two Guys Pasta and Pizza, tomato sauce simmers on the stove for hours, while housemade pizza dough bakes in the oven until bubbly and crisp. The eatery’s from-scratch sauces and breads have earned nods from the Daily Bulletin, which hails the fresh-baked bread as “outstanding—almost a meal in itself.” Diners can also make a meal out of Two Guys’ specialty pastas and sandwiches, pairing these eats with draft beers and bottles of wine freshly tapped from the grape bush.
Wake snoozing taste buds with a hearty starter such as mozzarella suprema breadsticks adorned with natural cheese and herbs ($3.95 side; $5.95 large) before moving onto a signature fire-roasted pie. An authentic terra-cotta oven blasts RedBrick's prided circles with more than 1,000 degrees of heat, alchemically transforming their base dough into crispy gold in less than three minutes. Enjoy stationary drive-in dining with a bacon-cheeseburger pizza topped with ground beef and three kinds of cheese ($17.95 for a 14"), or graze on the veggie gourmet works, which comes loaded with a Peter Piper's worth of fresh vegetables including bell peppers, artichokes, and mushrooms, swaddled in your choice of a vegetarian red or white sauce ($17.95 for a 14"). Create-your-own pies are also available, providing palate-pleasing fill-in-the-blanks for the munching mad-libbest. Yowling sweet teeth can be silenced with a dessert of gourmet gelato or a surprise dinner visit from the dentist's wife, the librarian.
