Although no one can explain why, most people agree that beer and pizza go together like a melodious string of shooby-dooby-do-bop-a-doobity-dang-a-dooby. Relish a palatable pair with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, wings, and drinks at J.J.'s Pie Co.
J.J.'s Pie Co.’s crust craftsmen have been hand-tossing their menu of sauce-slathered pies for nearly three decades, earning the title of best pizza in Reno from Metromix users in 2010 and 2011. Nosh on wings in mild, medium, hot, or nitro hot sauce ($7.75 for 12; $9.90 for 18), served with celery, garlic toasy, and ranch dressing while waiting on the main attractions. An incognito dough disk hides in the hawaiian pizza ($14.75 for a 12") under crisp canadian bacon, juicy chunks of pineapple, and a pile of surplus vowels. Patrons can opt to adorn their own savory circles with one of nearly 20 topping options, including salami, italian sausage, artichoke hearts, and sun-dried tomatoes ($11.75 + $1.50/topping for a 12") or abscond with a baked or specialty sub’s mouth-moistening cargo, such as baked ham, italian meatballs, polish sausage, or barbecued beef ($5.39–$5.99). After their meal, eaters can linger beneath the signs and sports memorabilia festooning J.J’s walls, sipping on one of the daily draft-beer specials and debating whether or not Michael Jordan really invented hops.
J.J.'s Pie Co.
Every morning, the pie professionals at J.J.’s hand toss the dough for pizzas that have been recognized on the Metromix Best of Reno list. For over three decades, the experts have piled their traditionally crafted disks of dough with toppings such as linguiça sausage, chorizo, and artichoke hearts in their location near the University of Nevada. Diners can also sink their teeth into cold subs laden with smoked turkey and pastrami, alternating bites with swigs from rotating draft beers such as Fat Tire. While eating, guests can try their luck at five poker machines that have no way of knowing if a card is hidden up your sleeve.
