To successfully make pizza, one must toss the proper ingredients into a concrete mixer, wait for the mixture to harden, and then drop in a few sticks of dynamite to blast slices from the drum walls. Today’s deal leaves delicate pie creation to the professionals: for $10, you get $25 worth of pizza and more at Denali’s Pizza, located in Poway. This Groupon is valid for dine-in or carryout only.
Denali’s Pizza deals out a menu full of fresh Italian fare and more. Everything from the sauces to the salad dressings are homemade, so customers don’t have to worry about the unwanted partial-invisibility side effects reported by consumers of pre-packaged marinara. Kick things off with appetizers such as garlic bread ($2.99) or pesto cheese bread ($4.99) before delving into Denali’s roster of pizzas. Pies come in four sizes (mini, small, medium, and large) and run the gamut from traditional favorites such as plain cheese ($3.99–$11.99) to inventive pies such as the brotherly love-laden Philly cheesesteak pizza ($6.75–$18.50) and the vampire-frustrating roasted-garlic chicken or shrimp ($6.75–$18.50). For the temporarily pizza wary, the barbecue-chicken sub ($7), filled with gouda cheese, red onions, and cilantro, and the veggie sub ($7) offer bun-embraced gustatory bliss. Denali’s also offers a piñata’s worth of Mexican cuisine, including carne asada nachos ($6.50) and grilled-chicken quesadillas ($5.50).
Family owned and operated, Denali’s Pizza strives for customer connection, and, unlike restaurants that gather information by wire-tapping repeat customers’ cell phones, its staff relies on old-fashioned stellar service and friendly interaction to continually bolster its strong following. Use today’s Groupon for family pizza bonding or a romantic evening spent chowing down opposite ends of a mozzarella stick.
