Anyone who’s tried nailing an oven-fresh pizza pie to a wall knows pizza looks better briefly propped on a five-finger pedestal. Today’s Groupon puts pizza back where it performs best: for $10, you get $20 worth of wood-fired pizza, wings, and more at Woody's Wood Fired Tavern. Choose between the following two locations: Arvada or Denver.
Woody's Wood Fired Tavern stacks its board of fare with a veritable variety of hearty eats and pizzas infused with rich, savory flavor from being cooked over a wood fire. Begin breaking down hunger's castle walls with a bowl of Woody's specialty beer-cheese soup ($1.99), or march towards meaty matrimony with the Nothin' But Meat thin-crust pizza, which floats a titanic meatberg of sausage, pepperoni, ground beef, ham, and bacon atop a mass of mozzarella ($9.99 for an individual, $15.99 for a large). The California Dream combines sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, fresh spinach, roasted garlic, mozzarella, and feta cheese into an edible Beach Boys LP ($9.99 for an individual, $14.99 for a large). Gluten-free crust is available (individual size only). Woody's burgers come in many forms, but they all are made with a third of a pound of fresh ground beef, lightly seasoned, charbroiled, and served with crispy seasoned fries ($5.99–$7.49).
Outdoor seating and a spacious indoor dining area make Woody's a lived-in local hangout for socializing with friends or faux-cializing with frenemies well into the wee hours. The friendly, helpful waitstaff contributes to the laid-back vibe by stopping frequently to shoot the breeze, fill glasses, and make jukebox recommendations upon request.
Under the supervision of an experienced chef at Woody’s Tavern, crackling logs not only give pizza dough a crispy crunch, but also create complex, smoky flavors. Chefs top pizzas with specialty combinations, such as the California Dream's basil pesto and artichoke hearts or the Pep Pep Pepperoni's roasted poblanos and jalapeños, and use gluten-free crusts and big, round carrots for those with dietary restrictions. Customers can enjoy the slices by the pie or sample a variety at the shop’s featured all-you-can-eat salad, soup, and pizza bar. These dishes and their hearty half-pound burgers pair well with the 16 drafts on tap, award-winning wine, margaritas, and other cocktails from the bar.
