The Pizza Stop twirls pies slathered in toppings and assembles hearty sandwiches for guests to refuel on between congenial billiard tournaments. Pepperoni, jalapeños, mushrooms, and a venerable cast of toppings find homes atop cheesy, crusty diameters, which range in size from 10–16 inches ($6.50–$16.75).

A sleek wood high-top bar heads a dining space lined with equally wooden tables, and a digital dartboard and green billiards tables ensconce patrons in festive recreation beneath pool-hall lights and inflatable referees.
